A Cocktail & Conversation Time With TB&TB -- GIMME NEW BOOKS PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

Every other Thursday ('s Friday and idk when the last time we did one of these posts but ideally this was the plan) at The Broke & The Bookish is A Cocktail Conversation time. One of the TB&TB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends. 

This week the question is: 

Who is one author who you are just DYING for them to release a new book?

Lauren says...

Ania Ahlborn -- I've read every single one of her horror novels, and I will not stop now. She never fails to creep me out by placing a spin on old school horror. No frills, just thrill.
Ernest Cline -- I loved Ready Player One and Armada, but I need more. I have to more. Where are you, Ernest?
Deborah Harkness -- I loved The All Souls Trilogy she wrote. But that's all we've gotten from her so far. She a well-educated woman with a penchant for writing... and honestly, I need a little more of that in my life.

Julia says...

George R.R. Martin -- I want to know what is going to happen so badly!! And now the TV show is ahead and there are some amazing twists... I just want to see how this weaves into the story the book is telling (which is now different from the TV show). Also Patrick Rothfuss. I love the world he created in the Kingskiller Chronicles, so I want to know as much as possible!

Bridget says...

Gillian Flynn -- I need some more effed up psychological thrillers to devour. Gone Girl came out, what, five years ago?? You can't tell me that she's out of ideas after only three books. I want more!! 

Jamie says...

Jandy Nelson -- The two books she has out are on my all time faves list and I just NEED more from her. I'll Give You The Sun was especially brilliant and I know brilliance probably takes time but OMG THE WAAAAAAIT KILLS ME. I thought I might die between The Sky Is Everywhere and I'll Give You The Sun and I don't even want to look to see how far out the next one is. Time to reread probably! In this industry I feel like books are coming out quicker and quicker and I appreciate that some authors can't write at that pace so this isn't a complaint...just an I LOVE HER BOOKS SO DAMN MUCH AND AM DYING FOR MORE. 

What about you guys??? What authors are you just like, "OMG PLEASE GIMME MORE BOOKS ALREADY!"


  1. I definitely agree with George RR Martin! It has been far too long!

  2. Agree with Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl was THE most diabolical plot I have ever read! Also with Deborah Harkness, enjoyed the All Souls Trilogy a lot.

    I'd like to see another book from ...
    Marie Bostwick in her series Cobbled Court Quilts.
    Katherine Neville - another sequel to The Eight and Fire.
    Kate Mosse - next in her Labyrinth series
    Sarah Addison Allen - anything she wants to write!

  3. I adore Jasper Fforde and his book Shades of Grey (not the 50 kind). He has said that it's a trilogy but it's been over 2 years and no sign of book 2.

  4. I'm waiting for Deborah Crombie and Julie Spencer-Fleming!!!!+
    Slowpokes, but worth the wait (1-2 years)

  5. LAINI TAYLOR. At least I know another book is coming out in the fall, but sometimes I just think that the wait will never end! x.x

  6. Kristin Cashore! I wish I could read all her books again for the first time.

  7. I second Bridget's answer of Gillian Flynn! She released that novella, The Grownup, but it was only ok. I'm dying for another novel from her!

  8. I need more GRRM too!!!! Dying over here!! I also reeeeeally want another book from Kristin Cashore (Graceling trilogy) and Madeline Miller (The Song of Achilles). They all write so slowly because their words are so gorgeous I guess ;) Also Lindsay Barraclough (Long Lankin and The Mark of Cain)- her books are SO chilling and creepy, I can't wait to see what she'll write next.

    I didn't finish the 3rd All Souls book but I'm tempted to try it again. I loved the first two a lot!

  9. I didn't even realize it was already 5 years since Gone Girl! I don't want more books by authors compared to Gillian Flynn, I want ACTUAL Gillian Flynn!
