All Good Things..


Every Tuesday over at the  The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic.

    Wow, seven of these are already on my wishlist. I can’t wait to get my hands on Brimstone. Great list and it looks like you’ll have lots of great reading ahead!

  2. Tammy

    Awesome list, Lynn! I want to read ALL of these as well, even though they didn’t all make my list. I completely forgot about The Bear and the Nightingale. It’s also one of my favorite covers of the bunch. Here’s to an amazing year of books!

  3. Lisa (@TenaciousReader)

    i am so looking forward to Blood Upon the Sand! Greatt list!

  4. DJ (@MyLifeMyBooksMyEscape)

    I’m really excited for The Bear and the Nightingale! Not particular reason why; I just have this feeling that its going to be really good.

  5. Carmen

    While I read your list I kept thinking that I had heard of some of those titles before. Hmmm…Where, I wondered? It was probably you, of course! 😉 I love the cover of Heartstone.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Heartstone does look and sound like a great book. And, yes, most of these books have already appeared on my Waiting on Wednesday posts.

    I’m doing my annual Most Anticipated list tomorrow – With Blood Upon the Sand & City of Miracles are definitely on there

    • @lynnsbooks

      I can’t wait for both of those books. So excited.
      Lynn 😀

  7. Mari

    I am hearing a lot of hype going into the bear and the nightingale, and I cannot wait to read it! The Gilded Cage is on my tbr too!

    • @lynnsbooks

      They do both look lovely. I’m very excited for both.
      Lynn 😀

  8. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    Yes, indeed: a list of ten is far too small for all the titles we like to gloat over Gollum-style… 😀

  9. Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense

    Heartstone is one that almost made my list this week. There are just too many intriguing 2017 releases out there! Great list.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, indeed, 2017 looks as though it’s going to be very book busy!
      Lynn 😀

  10. Adri

    Norse Mythology is definitely one of the most anticipated. The ninth rain sounds rly good, I’m adding it to my ever-growing TBR! Great list 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      ooh, Jen Williams – she is so good. I can’t wait for her new series and I hope you love it too.
      Lynn 😀

  11. jessicabookworm

    I hope you are able to get your hands on some of these books you are looking forward to 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks Jessica – by the way did HP arrive??

      • jessicabookworm

        Yes HP arrived a few days ago, thank you 🙂

      • @lynnsbooks

        Cool – didn’t know whether I might get caught up with the Xmas post fury!

  12. Book Club Mom

    I’m looking forward to reading Behind Her Eyes – I’ll be watching for it!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, me too – it feels like I’ve been reading good things about that for ages – I wants it!
      Lynn 😀

  13. Caitlin Stern

    I’m really looking forward to the new Gaiman book, it should be interesting!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I totally agree – I’m looking forward to seeing what he does with Norse mythology.
      Lynn 😀

  14. Lisa

    I have the Norse mythology book on preorder — really looking forward to it! I’m looking forward to Gilded Cage as well. Enjoy!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve just started the Gilded Cage and so far it’s interesting.
      Lynn 😀

  15. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Pretty much almost everything here is what I’m looking forward to as well. Probably easier to say what is NOT on my list, haha 🙂 (Neil Gaiman and The Ninth Rain, and the latter only because I need to be good and not start a new series by Williams until I’m finished Copper Cat!)

    • @lynnsbooks

      I hear you – I have quite a few series to catch up with that i feel guilty about.
      Lynn 😀

  16. ChrissiReads

    I hope that you love these books!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – I do have high expectations but I hope so too.
      Lynn 😀

  17. ~ Angie Elle ~

    Oh, man. That cover on Gilded Cage is gorgeous!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It really does draw the eye doesn’t it – I wanted that book even before I read the synopsis.
      Lynn 😀

  18. Amanda @Cover2CoverMom

    Like you, I CANNOT wait for Norse Mythology!!! Eek!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – Gaiman and Norse Mythology. I don’t know if I can stand the wait!
      Lynn 😀
