I didn't know where to put this so I decided to put it here...

There is going to be another Goblin Emperor book! It's called The Witness for the Dead and it's not listed as a sequel so much as "in the world of the Goblin Emperor" but I am very, very excited.

Goes to goodread  only to find I’ve already added it on the 21st March 2020 haha

I saw that, when I went to find the link, and I felt both sheepish and outraged that you already knew and hadn't told us (me). I mean, in fairness, I had heard that there was a soft-announced "sequel", but with the publication of the other Sherlock-fanfic novel, I had sort of forgotten!

After a relatively slow 2020 for new books (at least it feels like that, I might discover differently when I do my yearly summary hehe), at the moment I've got 10 books in my 2021 "to buy" list - basically new 2020 books that are coming out on paperback next year.

I decided to create a little table by month to remind me (usually paperbacks aren't advertised), and they're nicely spread in the first half of the year :D

At the moment I think I'm in a place of "right book at the wrong time" (or is it "wrong book at right time", since all time is right?)
I'm just not connecting, and I know I'd love it at another time... :-\

I think I had a case of this yesterday. The day before I was reading Holy Sister and feeling that it was quite droll as I was yawning throughout (I was feeling kinda stressed and tired from all of the exams the other day). Yesterday and today I was reading Holy Sister and was hyped as hell on what's going to happen next, so much that I couldn't wait to get back to read it again. Different times different perspectives, I guess. (Or maybe I'd just hit the patch where things are really getting into motion, hahah)  ;D
