January Releases I am Adding to my TBR

There is an insane amount of releases which I will be adding to my TBR (to-be-read) pile in January. Quite a few of these are sequels which I need to catch-up on the series first but I am still excited for them. Let get straight into it then, lots of books to look at today:

New Series and New Authors

Poison's Kiss (#1) by Breeana Shields

Sequels to Series I Have Begun to Read


Mafiosa (Blood for Blood #3) by Catherine Doyle
Release Date: 5th January 2017   
This is one of the series which I am actually up-to-date with and I am so excited to read this one. I already received my pre-order of this book, just need to finds a few hours to sit down and lose myself in this amazing story again. Would highly recommend the Blood for Blood series, find my review of the first two books here.
Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs
Paperback Release Date: 31st January 2017  
The Mercy Thompson series is one what I fell in love with many years ago and the last 9 ish months have been a test of will. The hardback edition of this book came out in March, but I own the paper back editions of the rest of the series, so I have been waiting patiently for the paperback to come out, not long to wait now!! 
Snared (Elemental Assassin #16) by Jennifer Estep
Release Date: 31st January 2017
This is a series which I need to catch up with I have read the first 13 books but I have been pacing myself with this series. I would recommend this series to the lovers of the action packed assassin novels but with strong family bonds and the strains for romance.
Windwitch (Witchlands #2) by Susan Dennard
Release Date: 10th January 2017
This is sequel which I am going to wait to read. I wasn't wowed by Truthwitch, with the amount of hype I was expecting more than I got (see my review here). So with this one I am going to wait and read the positive and negative review first before deciding if I should pick this sequel up.
Dawn Study (Souldfinder #3) by Maria V. Snyder
Release Date: 31st January 2016
This is a series which I am conflicted about. I love Maria V. Snyder's work and up until recently she has been an auto-buy author for me. I was so excited when I heard that we were getting more from the Ixia world, but I have always preferred Opals (glass) story to Yelena's - I must be one of a minority. I read Shadow Study when it came out and was disappointed, an haven't picked up Night Study yet. Still confused on my feelings on this series.
Traitor to the Throne (Rebel of the Sands #2) by Alwyn Hamilton
Kindle Release Date: 31st January 2017
Love Hamilton's debut Rebel of the Sands (see my review here) and I can't wait to see what she is has done with these beloved characters now.


Sequels to Series I Haven't Begun to Read

The Cursed Queen (The Impostor Queen #2) by Sarah Fine
Release Date: 3rd January 2017 
I have had The Imposter Queen on my to-buy list for months, but never bought it and at this point I might just wait until it comes out in paperback. Anyway, I love the sound of the first book, but this sequel seems to be following different characters (something that authors do all too often, which I hate) so I might not read this sequel but will defiantly check out the first book.  
Wayfarer (Passenger #2) by Alexandra Bracken
Release Date: 3rd January 2017
I bought Passenger back in April 2016 and I have yet to read it! I did a review collection for this book and saw a wide range of thoughts on this book, so I am intrigued to see my own thoughts on it. Just need to find time to get around to reading it!
