Let's Talk Books

Can’t Wait Wednesday #Tag

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we are excited about that we have yet to read. And, having confessed yesterday about the number of books I still have yet to read, I shouldn’t then be posting today to say I’m so excited about two books coming out early next year, but I am. The two I can’t wait for are:

  • THE LOST MAN by Jane Harper — This is Harper’s third book, but, as I understand it, a standalone to the first two, which featured Aaron Falk. Still a murder  mystery, this one is, again, set in the outback where the land plays a big part in the story.
  • THE KINGDOM OF COPPER by S. A. Chakraborty — this is the second book in Chakraborty’s magical series set amid the myths and legends of the Middle East, featuring Djinn and magic. I’m super excited about reading this sequel and finding out what’s happened to Nahri and Dara.

It seems like everyone and their mother has already read and reviewed The Lost Man—I’m avoiding reading any reviews like the plague. Not wanting to spoil my own read by knowing what others think. Same goes for The Kingdom of Copper. I want to come at both these books untainted, as it were.

And you, what are you super excited about reading?


  1. Oh, Lost Man is gonna be one of those books i just know i won’t put off for long <3

      You and I both then. I have it on pre-order, just to make sure I get my copy.

  2. Of course The Kingdom of Copper! I am ashamed to tell you that I still need to read City of Brass (hiding under a rock here) ….

    • Alexandra says

      Ah, Sophie, no need to hide. You’ll get to it, eh, sometime, right? 😉

  3. I would like to read City of Brass (it will happen… hopefully…. maybe… ), I definitely like the sound of both this book and its sequel you are looking forward to.

    I am looking forward to reading Katherine Arden’s Winter of the Witch – the third and final book set in medieval Russia spiced with folk legends.

      These are two very different books and authors, yet I love both for the great storytelling, and writing. Each so distinct. And fable-laced fantasy? I’m game…I need to check out Arden’s series, it sounds like my kind of read.

      And yes, I do hope you get around to reading The City of Brass, but it’s always a case of so many books, so little time. ☺️

  4. Today I watched the movie The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir and really loved it. Can’t wait to read the book version.

      Ha! Ha! I like watching a movie that inspires me to go read the book, too, Veronica. I’ve made a note of this one.
