Looking Toward 2014

It's almost November!  This is crazy.  Tomorrow I will break out my Christmas music, and I've begun holiday shopping already.  It's my favorite time of year.


It's also that time of year that I begin anticipating next year's book releases!  I have a lot on my wishlist already that look great, and I'll be counting down the days to each.  I've separated my list into relevant categories:

Cress by Marissa Meyer, third in the Lunar Chronicles (February 4)

Valour and Vanity by Mary Robinette Kowal, fourth in her Glamourist Histories (April 8)
