Fugitive Telemetry (Murderbot #6), Martha Wells [APRIL 27]

I read my first Murderbot novella in October of 2018. I’ve been a die hard fan ever since. I about died of happiness when book 5 was announced to be a full length novel. Book 6 is another novella but that’s okay because I will take as much Murderbot as I can get right now!

When Murderbot discovers a dead body on Preservation Station, it knows it is going to have to assist station security to determine who the body is (was), how they were killed (that should be relatively straightforward, at least), and why (because apparently that matters to a lot of people—who knew?) Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must voluntarily speak to humans! Again!

Lost in the Never Woods, Aiden Thomas [MARCH 23]

Okay, so this one just came out a week ago. It’ll be a bit before I get to it. I recently read Thomas’ debut novel Cemetery Boys and I loved it so much! I’m really excited to read more from them!

It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road, and gets pulled into the mystery haunting the town.

Survive the Night, Riley Sager [July 3]

I’ve read and really enjoyed every novel that Riley Sager has released. I’m very excited to see something new from him and hoping it lives up to the hype.

It’s November 1991. George H. W. Bush is in the White House, Nirvana’s in the tape deck, and movie-obsessed college student Charlie Jordan is in a car with a man who might be a serial killer. Josh Baxter, the man behind the wheel, is a virtual stranger to Charlie. They met at the campus ride board, each looking to share the long drive home to Ohio. Both have good reasons for wanting to get away. What follows is a game of cat-and-mouse played out on night-shrouded roads and in neon-lit parking lots, during an age when the only call for help can be made on a pay phone and in a place where there’s nowhere to run. In order to win, Charlie must do one thing—survive the night.

The Galaxy and the Ground Within, Becky Chambers [APRIL 20]

I love the Wayfarer’s series and the way that Becky Chambers writes. I’m happy to continue this series with The Galaxy and the Ground Within thanks to a Netgalley gift of the digital copy.

When a freak technological failure halts all traffic to and from Gora, three strangers—all different species with different aims—are thrown together at the Five-Hop. Grounded, with nothing to do but wait, the trio—an exiled artist with an appointment to keep, a cargo runner at a personal crossroads, and a mysterious individual doing her best to help those on the fringes—are compelled to confront where they’ve been, where they might go, and what they are, or could be, to each other.

Malibu Rising, Taylor Jenkins Reid [JUNE 1]

Reid is quickly becoming a favorite author. I absolutely loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and really enjoyed Daisy Jones & the Six. This is the kind of author that can make me actually want to read a contemporary or historical fiction drama. Not an easy feat.

Malibu: August 1983. It’s the day of Nina Riva’s annual end-of-summer party. The only person not looking forward to the party of the year is Nina herself. By midnight the party will be completely out of control. By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames. But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family’s generations will all come bubbling to the surface.

There are so many other books releasing soon that look so good! What books are you most looking for to?
