January 2017 Releases – Watch List

Releases I’m excited for in January 2017

The Bear and the Nightingale – Katherine Arden

January 17th

A fairy-tale-esque story set in the Russian wilderness. As a lifelong lover of fairy tales, this is right up my alley, and since I haven’t kept up with my fairy tale reading over the past year, this looks like a good story to sink my teeth into and hopefully get back in the game.

 

 

27883214Caraval – Stephanie Garber

January 31st

Two sisters escape their abusive father and take part in Caraval, a legendary show/game where the audience is very much part of the spectacle. ProtagonistΒ Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find her sister before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever. The first in a two-book series, Caraval has been highly praised by early readers.


31183180Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day – Seanan McGuire

January 10th

Last year I read Seanan McGuire’s Every Heart A Doorway, a novella with a fantastic concept but just slightly failed on the execution. In her new novella, McGuire tackles ghosts and a new exciting concept, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the plot of this one holds up. I have already been stunned by McGuire’s ideas, so I have high hopes for this one.
