What are our darlings working at? -the hunt for the next book

We all know the moment.

You read book, that enchants you. It whispers to your heart, your soul, your mind and you just know – you will buy every book THIS AUTHOR HAS EVER WRITTEN! and then comes the disappointment, because you’ve already read every single sentence this particular Author has ever written and you fall into a hole of depression and the hell of a heartbroken book-nerdigan.


no no no no NO


And I have the solution!

I played undercover cop and Watson got just the right amount of books, that are still a secret in general, but we all know Goodreads is god and knows everything! So here you have the next releases and titles of my favorite authors and magicians.


prepare with a happy dance


Colleen Hoover:

Verity – expected publishing date: 2019

“A romantic thriller. A psychological thriller. A mindf*ck. Blurb and cover reveal coming soon.” – (Goodreads)

Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufmann :

Aurora Rising –  expected publishing date: 30th April 2019

“The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy. – (Goodreads)

Tahereh Mafi :

A large expanse of the sea – expected publishing date: 16th October 2018

It’s 2002, a year after 9/11. It’s an extremely turbulent time politically, but especially so for someone like Shirin, a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who’s tired of being stereotyped.
Shirin is never surprised by how horrible people can be. She’s tired of the rude stares, the degrading comments—even the physical violence—she endures as a result of her race, her religion, and the hijab she wears every day. So she’s built up protective walls and refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt her. Instead, she drowns her frustrations in music and spends her afternoons break-dancing with her brother.
But then she meets Ocean James. He’s the first person in forever who really seems to want to get to know Shirin. It terrifies her—they seem to come from two irreconcilable worlds—and Shirin has had her guard up for so long that she’s not sure she’ll ever be able to let it down. – (Goodreads)

Defy me – expected publishing date: 2nd April 2019

The gripping fifth installment in the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestselling Shatter Me series. Will Juliette’s broken heart make her vulnerable to the strengthening darkness within her?
Juliette’s short tenure as the supreme commander of North America has been an utter disaster. When the children of the other world leaders show up on her doorstep, she wants nothing more than to turn to Warner for support and guidance. But he shatters her heart when he reveals that he’s been keeping secrets about her family and her identity from her—secrets that change everything.
Juliette is devastated, and the darkness that’s always dwelled within her threatens to consume her. An explosive encounter with unexpected visitors might be enough to push her over the edge. – (Goodreads)

Until the taps run dry.

Suddenly, Alyssa’s quiet suburban street spirals into a warzone of desperation; neighbours and families turned against each other on the hunt for water.

Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile, has returned to the Core. Determined to bring peace back to mankind at the edge of his sword, he must overcome or unite the treacherous Gold families of the Core and face down Darrow over the skies of war-torn Mercury.
But theirs are not the only fates hanging in the balance.
On Luna, Mustang, Sovereign of the Republic, campaigns to unite the Republic behind her husband. Beset by political and criminal enemies, can she outwit her opponents in time to save him?

The town is picture-perfect, but it’s hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone’s declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.
Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she’s in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous–and most people aren’t good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it’s safest to keep your secrets to yourself.” – (Goodreads)

Alwyn Hamilton

Untitled (YA fantasy) – expected publishing date: not set

first snippet from the newsletter: She appeared in the entrance like a painting in a frame. Her right hand was curled around the door, stretched out long as she leaned against the jamb. Short blonde hair haloed out around a delicately featured face with heavily lidded eyes, the remnants of a bright lipstick graced a full mouth. The rest of it stained the rim of the nearly empty glass that hung loosely from her fingers. A pale cream dressing gown was tied haphazardly around her slender waist, slinking treacherously off her left shoulder, exposing the thin strap of a white negligée underneath and porcelain white skin under that. Elegantly heeled shoes gave her a head’s worth of height on Lottie, so that she was staring hazily down at her through heavily lidded eyes.
She was the most obscenely beautiful creature Lottie had ever seen in person.
Her eyes swiveled from Lottie to Benedict, a little unfocused, short strands of platinum blonde hair falling out of her exquisitely fashionable bob and into her long eyelashes.
“Finally!” She said spoke at last, her voice bright and loud as she raised the drink in her right hand to her lips. “You’re appallingly late you know, I had to start the party without you.” (Read more here…)

99 Percent Mine – expected publishing date: January 29th 2019

“Crush: a strong and often short-lived infatuation, particularly for someone beyond your reach…

… If Darcy Barrett hadn’t met her dream man when she was eight years old, the rest of the male population wouldn’t be such a let-down. No one measures up to Tom Valeska, aka the best man on Earth, not in looks, brain or heart. Even worse is the knowledge that her twin brother Jamie saw him first, and claimed him forever as his best friend.
Tom’s off limits and loyal to her brother, 99%. One percent of Tom has had to be enough for Darcy, and her adoration has been sustained by his shy kindness. And if she’s honest, his tight t-shirts.
Now Darcy’s got three months left to get her life together before her twin insists on selling the tumble-down cottage they inherited from their grandmother. By night, she’s working in a seedy bar, shooting down lame pickups from bikers. By day, she’s sewing underwear for her best friend and wasting her award-winning photography skills on website shots of pens and novelty mugs. She’s enjoying living the messy life, and a glass of wine or ten… until that one night, when she finds a six-foot-six perfect package on her porch.
Tom’s here, he’s bearing power tools—and he’s single for the first time in a decade.
As a house flipper extraordinaire, Tom has been dispatched by Jamie to give the cottage a drastic facelift that will result in a ton of cash. Darcy doesn’t appreciate Tom’s unsentimental approach to knocking down walls, and he really, really doesn’t approve of her current burnout boyfriend. They can’t be in the same room together without sparks flying- and it’s not the faulty wiring. One bedroom wall separates them at night, and even that’s looking flimsy.
Will Tom ever see Darcy as anything other than a little-sister obstacle to get around? And can she stand up to her most formidable opponent—her twin? This time around, she’s determined to make Tom Valeska 99 percent hers, and he’s never managed to say no to her yet…” – (Goodreads)



As you can see some of my heroes are never sleeping and eating, so the only obvious thing we can do is: Buying all these books to promote them 😀 So get your Bullet Journal or planner and note down this epic releases, because I know social media can sometimes be overwhelming and I hate when I miss a great release because someone “bigger” releases at the same day 🙂
