Upcoming Books

New Books

This was initially a massive list of all the books I wanted to highlight but since I’m going back to my book blogging roots of primarily reading and review children’s books (with some speculative fiction thrown in for good measure) this list will now focus on upcoming books in those areas.

Eventually each listing will link to the author’s page/twitter/facebook and the publisher, but for the moment welcome to some upcoming books I’ve seen and been told about and am going to get.

This is also my wish list!
