Books I'm Waiting Impatiently For

Here's a #bookwormproblem for you - I'm dying to read some new books by some of my favorite authors, but their release dates seem so far away! Here are a few of the books for which I am impatiently waiting.

By Its Cover by Donna Leon (4/1/14) 
I felt like the Guido Brunetti series slumped a bit in the middle, but it's been great again lately - The Golden Egg was depressingly amazing. I can't wait to see how life at the Questore is holding up, and what Brunetti's wife Paola is up to.

Delancey by Molly Wizenberg (5/6/14)
I've loved Molly Wizenberg's blog Orangette for years. In 2009 Noel and I got to eat at Delancey, and I saw Molly & Brandon working in the kitchen! I was starstruck (but too chicken to actually say hi). I adored Molly's first book, A Homemade Life, so I'm sure that Delancey is going to be great as well.

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo (6/17/14)
It seems odd that this book and That Summer (below) don't have covers yet, since they'll be published relatively soon. I blitzed through the first two books in the Grisha trilogy shortly after Juliet was born, and have been waiting impatiently for the grand finale ever since.

That Summer by Lauren Willig (6/3/14)
That Summer's not part of Lauren's Pink Carnation series - it's a standalone Victorian novel. I'm pretty excited about her standalone stuff, since I really enjoyed The Ashford Affair last year.

To Dwell in Darkness by Deborah Crombie (9/23/14)
This one was originally scheduled to come out 3/25, which I was already impatient about since the last Gemma James & Duncan Kincaid mystery came out in February last year. But then they just moved it back six months! Ack! I'm dying for a Gemma-Duncan fix. What's going on with Duncan's job?!

There are other books later in the fall that I'm impatient for too (I'm looking at you Maggie Stiefvater); but I'll just get sad if I think about how far away their release dates are.

Which books are you waiting for?
