    • It’s been so many years since I read The Handmaid’s Tale. I really wonder how easy it’ll be to get back into the story, and whether the events in the sequel will mirror what’s been happening on the Hulu show or go in a completely different direction.

  1. The Testaments is on my list, too! I’ve been counting down the days to that book’s release for months now. So excited.

    My TTT.

    • I’m really excited to read it, but I can’t help wondering whether the storyline will match up with what’s happening on the TV series or go in a completely different direction.

    • Yes and no — the relationships and situation in the house are a little different, but the major plot points are the same. If you have time, I’d say read Bird Box!

  2. Ooh i totally forgot about the illustrated goblet of fire 😱 im so excited to get that one!


  3. Awesome list! Oh my gosh! Malorie! I had no idea there was going to be another Bird Box book! I need to add that to my list! Also, super excited for The Testament, which I had no idea was coming out this fall so it didn’t make it on to my list. Definitely going to need that one right away.

  4. All of these sound so good! I’m so, so, so excited for them. Especially Wayward Son. Also, on the topic of authors on this list, I really need to get to reading some of Seanan McGuire’s releases. I’m not sure why I haven’t!
