New Books: January 22-28, 2017

One of my goals for 2017 was to get myself back into the habit of seeing what books were coming out at the beginning of month. I used to do it every month, adding each one that caught my eye to my wishlist.  Once I realized how huge my wishlist had gotten, I stopped. I stopped doing a lot of things, with regards to my book habit and reading, in 2016.

I miss being in “the know”, now, though. So, 2017 we will get back into seeing what’s coming out that month! #Goals

This is the first of those lists, y’all. Hope you find it useful.  If I missed a book, or if you added one of these to your wish list, make sure you leave a comment. I would love to talk about them with you!

Most Anticipated Book of the Week (January 22 – 28th, 2017)

It is so hard for me to just pick ONE book to say I am looking forward to. I’m going to do it, though, so this week my most anticipated book is:
Death's Mistress: Sister of Darkness: The Nicci Chronicles, Volume I by Terry Goodkind| wearewordnerds.com

Death’s Mistress: Sister of Darkness: The Nicci Chronicles, Volume I by Terry Goodkind

Release Date: 2017-01-24

Death’s Mistress: Sister of Darkness will launch The Nicci Chronicles, Terry Goodkind’s entirely new series with a cast of characters centered on one of his best-loved characters in the now-concluded Sword of Truth.

One-time lieutenant of the evil Emperor Jagang, known as “Death’s Mistress” and the “Slave Queen”, the deadly Nicci captured Richard Rahl in order to convince him that the Imperial Order stood for the greater good. But it was Richard who converted Nicci instead, and for years thereafter she served Richard and Kahlan as one of their closest friends―and one of their most lethal defenders.

Now, with the reign of Richard and Kahlan finally stabilized, Nicci has set out on her own for new adventures. One of her jobs will be to keep her travelling companion, the unworldly prophet Nathan, out of trouble. But her real task will be to scout the far reaches of Richard Rahl’s realm. This will take her and Nathan to visit the mysterious witch-woman Red, to tangle with the street life of the port city of Tanimura, to fight lethal battles on the high seas, and ultimately to a vast magical confrontation far from home…with the future of life itself, in the Old World and the New, at stake.

Full of life and story, this is a sweeping, engaging tale in the grand Goodkind manner.

WHY IT MADE THE WISHLIST:
I love me some high fantasy. I have several of Goodkind’s other series and this one looks promising. I know the internet has a real love/hate relationship with Terry Goodkind and the SWORD OF TRUTH series, but I read Wizard’s First Rule (Sword of Truth) the first book in the series a few years back and, seriously, I have no issues. Bring it on, is all I say!
