December 2016 Anticipated Releases

Is it just me or did November fly by? December is already here, and a new month means new books being released.

Compared to this fall, there aren’t a lot of books being released that I’m interested in.


Lumberjanes, Vol. 5: Band Together by Noelle Stevenson, Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooke Allen

Release date: 12/13/16 | Goodreads

The Lumberjanes meet rock n’ roll mermaids!

Excited for the annual Bandicoot Bacchanal, Ripley recruits her friends to help her get ready for the dance. But before the Lumberjanes know it, something mysterious begins to bubble to the surface of the lake near camp! Will the Lumberjanes be able to bring peace to the lake in time for the Bacchanal?

This New York Times Best Seller and multiple Eisner Award-winning series written by Shannon Watters with Kat Leyh, and illustrated by Carolyn Nowak (Rungs), follows the Lumberjanes as they face new challenges in their friendships and embark on fantastical adventures! And ever wonder how the Lumberjanes first met? Find out in the story written by Noelle Stevenson (Nimona, Runaways), and illustrated by Brooke Allen (A Home for Mr. Easter), when they take a trip back to the first day of camp and witness how the Lumberjanes “friendship to the max” began!

Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill

Series: Clash of Kingdoms, #1 | Release date: 12/27/16 | Goodreads

Seventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, the legendary bounty hunter for the King of Malam—that is, until her father is murdered. Now outcast and alone and having no rights to her father’s land or inheritance, she seeks refuge where she feels most safe: the Ever Woods. When Britta is caught poaching by the royal guard, instead of facing the noose she is offered a deal: her freedom in exchange for her father’s killer.

However, it’s not so simple.

The alleged killer is none other than Cohen McKay, her father’s former apprentice. The only friend she’s ever known. The boy she once loved who broke her heart. She must go on a dangerous quest in a world of warring kingdoms, mad kings, and dark magic to find the real killer. But Britta wields more power than she knows. And soon she will learn what has always made her different will make her a daunting and dangerous force.

    I just posted my review of Ever the Hunted. It’s a fantastic book! The reviews have been mixed but I really enjoyed the fast paced adventure, magic and of course romance. It was a lot of fun to read. I hope you like it! 🙂

      The Lumberjanes is a graphic novel series. To give you a super brief description, it’s about a group of girls (they kind of remind me of a small Girl Scout troop) that go on magical adventures. The series gives me a bit of an Adventure Time vibe.

    I don’t generally keep track of when books are released but I hope Ever the Hunted lives up to expectations! That cover is beautiful and though the blurb isn’t super unique, sometimes the book can blow your expectations out of the water. Hope you enjoy it. ❤

    Get this: I was at Barnes and Noble today, and they had Ever The Hunted out for sale! And it’s not supposed to be out until the 27th! Someone else saw Frost Blood at one! Maybe we should go more often and see if books are being put out early…especially when we are waiting on a title? 🤔

      I remember one time I saw An Ember in the Ashes out at Barnes and Noble a couple days before the release date. I agree. I think we should check more often to see if some of our anticipated releases are out early in stores.
