Looking Forward To...(93)

There are so many amazing books already on the shelves and new ones coming out.

For a list of books yet to be released I'm looking to get, you can also look on my right Sidebar at the ever growing list titled Desired Reads - just scroll down. Of course there are tones of other new books to come out that are amazing as well, but these ones are part of series I have already started or for one reason or another caught my eye (and haven't seen much on other blogs yet). But I will highlight one here each week.

(mentioned in order of Release Date then Alphabetical if there are more than one book coming out on the same date.)

Next Book Is...


The Janus Affair
Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #2
By:  Tee Morris & Philippa Ballantine
Due Out:  May 29, 2012

I enjoyed reading the first book with Eliza and Welly, er Wellington. ;)  Eliza caught my eye with her obsession with explosives.  Love that!  This is a wonderful steampunk read, with fun characters.  Looking forward to seeing where these two go, and what troubles they fall into.

Synopsis from Authors Site:

Evildoers beware! Retribution is at hand, thanks to Britain’s Best-kept secret agents!
Certainly no strangers to peculiar occurrences, agents Wellington Books and Eliza Braun are nonetheless stunned to observe a fellow passenger aboard Britain’s latest hyper steam train suddenly vanish in a dazzling bolt of lightning. They soon discover this is not the only such disappearance…with each case going inexplicably unexamined by the Crown.
The fate of England is once again in the hands of an ingenious archivist paired with a beautiful, fearless lady of adventure. And though their foe be fiendishly clever, so then is Mr. Books…and Miss Braun still has a number of useful and unusual devices hidden beneath her petticoats.
