2015/2016 Want To Read List Updated

Just a quick note before I log off and go to sleep...I just spent the evening combing through Amazon's list of forthcoming fantasy releases. I've updated my 2015 Want To Read List to include some books coming out in the next 2 months, plus some books coming out between January and April 2016. So if you want a peek at future epic fantasy releases, you might want to take a look (the big surprise to me was seeing a Feb 2016 release date for the next book from Jeff Salyards. Hope that date is true!)
