Wordy Celebration #2: On My Wish List

As we hit the midpoint of January, I'm celebrating the joy of ANTICIPATION. Here's a list of soon-to-be-released titles (and one recently published book), that I cannot wait to READ.

In the YA category, we have... a rom-com charmer from an author who began writing as a teen on Wattpad: The Upside of Falling by Alex Light; Sherri L. Smith's The Blossom and the Firefly, a powerful WWII romance between two Japanese teens; Lucky Caller, Emma Mills' witty contemporary debut featuring a radio broadcasting class; and The Kingdom of Back, a new historical fantasy by the unstoppable Marie Lu.


Heading over to the "grown-up" aisle, I am beyond excited for the new Emily St. John Mandel, whose Station Eleven remains on many of my top-ten lists: The Glass Hotel, coming in March. And, for those familiar with my epic carpool-Audible addiction, my next two "listens" in the queue are The Library Book by The Orchid Thief author Susan Orlean (this one actually pubbed in October, 2019) and, on the lighter side, Murder on Millionaires' Row by Erin Lindsey.
