#23 | Future Fiction: Books we're looking forward to in the next six months

Saturday, 12 October 2019


We’re very excited to be kicking off season three, and we hope you’re ready for another great season of book chatter. In our first episode of the season, we’re taking a look at the next six months and share some of the books being released by authors we already know and love, and a few from authors whose books we’ve never read. Stay tuned to find out which books we chose!




CURRENTLY READING



Sophie is currently reading Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas. Anjali is currently reading The Evil Queen by Gena Showalter

MAIN FEATURE


Before kicking into the main episode, we take a chance to have a chat about the books we’ve read between the end of Season Two and the beginning of Season Three. Here’s a quick run down: 

Sophie read:

  • Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
  • Puddin’ by Julie Murphy
  • Dear Evan Hansen by Steven Levenson
  • Little Woman by Louisa May Alcott
  • Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
  • The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson
  • Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker

Anjali read: 

  • Ghosts of the Shadowmarket by Cassandra Clare and friends
  • The Eyes of Tamburah by Maria V. Snyder
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  • Wolf Light by Yaba Badoe
  • Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

  • The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson

  • Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
  • Puddin’ by Julie Murphy
  • Check Please by Ngozi Ukazu
  • Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker

(14:35) We finally get into the main episode topic, and we try to include a book from each month from September to February/early March, but alas, it doesn’t really happen that way. But we do share six books each that we are excited about, though many are the same and we have double-ups. 

(17:15) There’s some confusion about whether a book that has just recently come out is a graphic novel or not. Still not 100% sure. 

(20:13) We both share our next September pick which is Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell, and get excited about the sequel to a novel that was meant to be a stand-alone. 

(24:22) “If it was supposed to be accurate, it would be non-fiction!”

(25:10) One of our favourite series has its final book coming out in November, and that is The Toll by Neal Shusterman, and we are both really looking forward to this book! Scythe and Thunderhead are the first and second, respectively, in this series and they're both excellent and we highly recommend reading them. 

(31:55) December is a black hole of nothing. There are many books coming out in December, of course there are, but none that we are super excited about or actually have an opinion or excitement about. 

(36:00) While Adam Silvera usually writes YA romance books, in January he’s releasing a book called Infinity Son, which seems to be a lot more fantasy-based, and we’re both looking forward to checking this out and seeing what it’s going to be like. 

We end the episode with a shout out for a few extra books which are coming out in the next six months that we didn’t fit into our limit of six.
