There are so many lovely books to look forward too! I'm enjoying Anne Gracie's Chance Sister Series. The Spring Bride came out several months ago, so I have months to wait for The Summer Bride about the last of the four "sisters by chance."
Sharon Shinn is one of my favorite fantasy authors and Jeweled Fire, next in her Elemental Blessings Series, will be released at the beginning of November. Her Archangel is brilliant, a classic of romantic fantasy. She writes great characters and great romance, so of course I always love her stories!
Last but hardly least is Lois McMaster Bujold, she is one of my all time favorite authors. Her fantasy novel Curse of Chalion is brilliant, I've reread it many times, and I love her Vorkosigan Saga (science fiction) just as much. I'm really looking forward to her new Vorkosigan book, Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen.
As a reader, I'm as much a fangirl as anyone else. I wish my favorite writers all wrote faster! But it's worth waiting for new books I know I'll love.
