Happy new year! And you all know a new year brings a whole new cycle of exciting book releases. I’ve read The Invocations and Emily Wilde’s Map of the Otherlands already, so keep an eye out for my reviews of those and I have Womb City and House of Flame and Shadow pre-ordered. Well I have ordered Mislaid in Parts Half-Known too but the hardback isn’t out till February. Why do they do this to us?!

As always, dates mostly refer to UK print editions, and so books may already be out in different formats or territories. Links go to Goodreads and * indicates I’ve received a review copy.
