It’s been two months since my last post and I keep telling myself I’ll do it – write a post and the pending reviews awaiting me but you know what they say about resolutions?
They’re only as good as the people who keep them and right now, I’m falling off mark (*hangs head in shame*).
On the brighter side, (*head’s holding up high again, moment of shame already forgotten*), I just took one of my fantastic fiction breaks, where I go on (https://www.fantasticfiction.com/) to have a nice time browsing and drooling over what new books will be out next and when.
Of course, I already have a Bookworm’s Calendar as follows:

Imagine my excitement when I saw that Nora Roberts will have a new book out on 05 December 2017 titled, YEAR ONE, Book 1 of the trilogy, CHRONICLES OF THE ONE. And this excitement is different from the one over the list of new books to be out because YEAR ONE sounds like a different style from Nora Roberts’ usual. There’s a dystopian feel to it and the synopsis is amazing. Don’t take my word for it, see below:
It began on New Year’s Eve.
The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed–and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.
Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river–or in the ones you know and love the most.
As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.
In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.
The end has come. The beginning comes next.
I can’t wait for this book to be out. The anticipation alone’s playing hell on my nerves and I only just found out about Year One, like, an hour ago, lol.
Here’s to delightful releases of amazing books to come.
