Saturday Seven: I Can’t Wait For ….

To all the folks joining us for Saturday Seven, please don’t forget to leave your link in the linky list at the end of this post.

So many books, so little time. This week, I asked our reviewers to share some books that they’re really excited will be coming out this year. Here’s a list of seven reviewers’ choices (slightly more than seven actual books):

From Mistflower:

I’m hooked on the Oak Grove series by Lauri Robinson and Kathryn Albright. I can’t wait for Kathryn Albright’s new one in the Oak Grove series, “Wedding at the Rocking S Ranch” by Kathryn Albright (Release date 2018).

From Cholla:

James Patterson has books in two of my favorite series coming out this year. One is “The 17th Suspect” in his Women’s Murder Club series (with Maxine Paetro), the other is “Red Alert” (with Marshall Karp) in his NYPD Red series. I’m kind of a sucker for his books…

From Astilbe:

I’m looking forward to reading “Finding Felicity” by Stacey Kade. It’s about a lonely teenage girl who uses characters from the TV show Felicity to invent an entire life for herself online. I’ve never had the urge to make up a fake life for myself online, so I’m fascinated by people who feel that desire and act on it. This is going to be a very good book, I think.

From Snowdrop:

I can’t wait for C.J. Box to put out “The Disappeared” or for “Antiques Wanted” by Barbara Allan. And Stuart Woods has 3 mysteries coming out this year…”Shoot First”, “Desperate Measures” and “Turbulence”.

From Rose:

Two of my favorite authors have books coming out this year. I can’t wait to read “The Outside” by Stephen King and “Leverage in Death” by JD Robb.

From Poppy:

I’m a big Nora Roberts fan and she has two books coming out this year that I’m looking forward to. “Of Blood and Bone” (Book #2 of The Chosen Ones series) — this series is so unlike anything she’s written in the past and I’m looking forward to seeing where she goes with it. And a single title romantic suspense, “Shelter in Place”.

From Lupine:

I’ve been a Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices fan forever and now the new Dark Artifices series I’m going a little crazy waiting for “Queen of Air and Darkness” by Cassandra Clare. It can’t come soon enough. Another series I’m really enjoying is the series by Kerri Maniscalco that started with “Stalking Jack the Ripper”. The next book, “Escaping From Houdini” releases this year and I’m so excited!

What about you? What books are you looking forward to? Do tell so we can add to our TBR lists!

    A Warrior’s Promise by Rosanne Bittner.

    • Long and Short Reviews says:

      Oh! I really love Linda Broday and Roseanne Bittner. I’ve never heard of Kari Lyn Dell, though, so I’ll have to go check her out. Thanks!

      • Tonya Lucas says:

        Yes you should check Kari out, she’s a professional rodeo girl and writes books that are true to The Rodeo Life. She has a series that’s awesome. Reckless In Texas, Tangled In Texas, Tougher In Texas, & Her new one, Fearless In Texas comes out in April.
        But she has a terrific Standalone if you want to try it. The Long Ride Home. Truly an amazing heartgripping story.

      • Tonya Lucas says:

        Linda Broday is my favorite historical writer, she truly captures my heart and her books are so heartwarming.. They stand The Test Of Time!

    • Stephanie Jenkins Ortiz Cerrillo says:

      I couldn’t think of titles this morning! I couldn’t agree more! I’m very excited for these books too!!

    • Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for liking my books, Tonya Lucas! And that you put on the same level as Kari Lynn Dell and Rosanne. I am so humbled. Those ladies really know how to write a romance. I love Kari and have read her wonderful rodeo series. Can’t say enough about them. She’s the real deal.

    • Stephanie Jenkins Ortiz Cerrillo says:

      I’m excited for those books too!!

  2. Lots of good book to look forward to this year!! I can’t wait for Tami Hoag’s book THE BOY, Been waiting a loooooong time for that one to release!

  3. Yes, I’m looking forward to the new Stephen King book as well. I haven’t been able to get into his last few stories, so I’m hoping the latest one will catch my attention like his earlier works did.

    My Saturday Seven post for this week:

  4. Stephanie Jenkins Ortiz Cerrillo says:

    I’m looking forward to books coming out this year by Linda Broday, Rosanne Bittner, Joan Johnston, Shanna Hatfield, Kari Lynn Dell and many other authors! It’s too early on this Saturday morning for my MS brain to be functioning to remember the titles. All I can say is if it’s by one of the above authors its going to be good!

    • Oh Stephanie, I know what you mean about cognitive issues since I, too, have MS. Sometimes our brains just refuse to cooperate. Thank you so much for the mention. You’ve made my day, lady!

  5. Glenda Kinard says:

    1:Linda Broday To Catch A Texas Star 2:Rosanne Bittner A Warriors Promise 3: Shanna Hatfield book 6 in her Christmas Rodeo Cowboys

    • Happy Saturday to you, Miss Glenda! You certainly have put a big smile on my face. Thank you so much. I think you’re going to love To Catch A Texas Star in July and I hope it’s everything you’re looking forward to. Big hugs!

      • Glenda Kinard says:

        Linda Broday you NEVER disappoint me with your books and they are always supercalifragilisticexpialidocious !!! You certainly always makes smile!!! Love you bunches!!

    • Stephanie Jenkins Ortiz Cerrillo says:

      Woohoo are all of those!!

  6. Mistflower, I adore Kathryn Albright and Lauri Robinson! They’re terrific. I’m looking forward to Jodi Thomas’ “Mornings on Main” that releases in April. This is mainstream and rumor has it that this one will blow your socks off. About a quilt shop and woman in the first stages of Alzheimer’s.

    And, Kari Lynn Dell’s “Fearless in Texas” is definitely on my list. It, too, releases in April. I’ve read the first three of this series and I’m itching to see what she has in store for the mysterious Wyatt Darrington. He fights bulls for a living but everything else is cloaked in mystery. Oooooh, I love a good mystery. Especially if it involves a sexy man who has nerves of steel!

  7. Poinsettia says:

    I really want to read the Stalking Jack the Ripper series! I think it sounds really good, but haven’t managed to get to it yet.

  8. Anxious to read the Stephen King too.

  9. I’m waiting for Kaje Harper to write more in her wolf-shifter series and her paranormal one AND her contemporary one, Thea Harrison’s new Dragos story, and many more. I just finished Tamora Pierce’s start to the Numair chronicles (“Tempests and Slaughter”) and I’d LOVE for the sequel to come out soon, but I figure it won’t be until next year, lol.
