I've read a lot over the past couple months. With two weekends away, I found myself putting a lot of free time into reading - more than I'm able to most months when I'm at home. Still, I have yet to find a book this year that's blown me away. Nothing like Uprooted, Words of Radiance, or The Martian.
This line of thought got me to thinking about books that I do expect to thoroughly enjoy. And so I started thinking on sequels which I hope will come out soon.
The Doors of Stone - The third and final book in The Kingkiller Chronicles is supposed to wrap up a story which seems to have barely begun in the first two books: The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear. I've heard totally valid (and scathing) criticisms of this series, centering mostly on how the main character seems like he can easily overcome any obstacle. But I still enjoy the story and look forward to its eventual conclusion. I admit that the final book might come out in 2028 for all I know.
Oathbringer - This is the forthcoming third book in The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson, following The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance. I've realized just as I was typing this up that it's scheduled for release on November 14th - in two months! I'm very excited. Brandon Sanderson is a great writer, and the setting he's crafted for this series is excellent.
Peace Talks - The forthcoming 16th book in The Dresden Files series. My favorite book series. It's got a ton of books, but they're such quick and absorbing reads that I tend to go through each in less than a week. And somehow, each book is better than the previous one. At this point, it's looking like a 2018 release.
