Awaiting in 2009

I am looking forward to reading lots of interesting stuff in 2009. Plenty of older books I'd like to catch up on and some new releases. Here's the list of new releases I will be looking forward to this year.

  1. The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss (April 7, 2009).

    The second installment in The Kingkiller Chronicle. The first book of the series, The Name of the Wind, was one of my favourite reads of 2008 and I can't wait for more adventures of Kvothe. I have also been following Patrick Rothfuss's blog and has been delighted with his love for Joss Whedon. I just hope there aren't any more delays to getting this book out. Also check out the excerpt from the new novel.

  2. Naamah's Kiss by Jacqueline Carey (June 2009)
    Jacqueline Carey returns with a new book set in Terre d'Ange. There are currently two other 3-book series set in the world. The first series, starting with Kushiel's Dart follows the adventures of Phedre, a courtesan, a spy, and many others things to boot. The second series, Kushiel's Legacy, follows Phedre's adopted son. Both series are well-written, fun, and impossible to put down. I have great hopes for the new book.

  3. The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch (February 24, 2009)

    The third installment following the adventures of Locke Lamora, a thief who takes pleasure in stealing from the rich in inventive ways while facing dangers at every turn.

  4. White Witch, Black Curse by Kim Harrison (February 24, 2009)
    This is the seventh book of The Hollows series. A fairly typical urban fantasy series following Rachel Morgan, a witch, who starts a detective agency together with a vampire Ivy. The third partner in the firm is a pixy Jenks. Other fun characters also become regulars. Despite following the urban fantasy formula, the series is a really fun read and the characters become so dear, you can't stop following their adventures.

Noticing how the last two books are coming out on the same data, I have already placed an amazon order for them. Can't wait to start on 2009 releases!
