Looking Forward To... (131)

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.)

It's been a while since I've done one of these Friday Looking Forward posts.  And I miss doing them.

Next Book Is...

Manifesto UF
Edited By:  Tim Marquitz & Tyson Mauermann
Due Out:  September 1, 2013

This one is out, and I do have a copy of it, but I'm still looking forward to it.  Sounds like a great read with a great blend of everything to love here, along with some new authors to try out.

Goodreads Synopsis:
From angels to vampires, dragons to wizards, Manifesto brings together twenty-three stories full of action, snark, and unadulterated badassery.
