Most Anticipated Book of the Week (Feb 12th – Feb 18th, 2017)

Another week of fantastic books, and entirely too hard to narrow it down to one. But, I did!  This week, I only preordered ONE book. Everything else went on the wishlist. So, what did I order? This guy…
In Calabria by Peter S. Beagle| wearewordnerds.com

In Calabria by Peter S. Beagle

Release Date: 2017-02-14

From the acclaimed author of Last Unicorn: The Deluxe Edition comes a new, exquisitely-told unicorn fable for the modern age.

Claudio Bianchi has lived alone for many years on a hillside in Southern Italy’s scenic Calabria. Set in his ways and suspicious of outsiders, Claudio has always resisted change, preferring farming and writing poetry. But one chilly morning, as though from a dream, an impossible visitor appears at the farm. When Claudio comes to her aid, an act of kindness throws his world into chaos. Suddenly he must stave off inquisitive onlookers, invasive media, and even more sinister influences.

Lyrical, gripping, and wise, In Calabria confirms Peter S. Beagle’s continuing legacy as one of fantasy’s most legendary authors.

WHY IT MADE THE LIST:
Y’all, Last Unicorn is one of my favorite high fantasy books (and movies!) Like rates right up there with LOTR and Narnia favorites. I’m talking HIGH UP there. There is no way I could NOT preorder this. Look at that cover! OMG!

 

So how about you, anything new catch your eye? You planning on picking any of these books up this week?
