Book Recs

I'm looking for something to read, so rec me books! New books, or books that are about to come out, including your own books. Comment with title, author, and why you liked it/are looking forward to it.

ETA: Fantasy, mystery, science fiction, romance, it's all good.
ETA2: And historical fiction or non-fiction!

Glenda Larke's The Aware. Fantasy with amazing characters and world-building. Don't be put off by the lurid cover.

Kay Kenyon's Bright of the Sky. Science fiction with mindblowing, complex worldbuilding.

Andreas Eschbach's The Carpet Makers. Science fiction, translated from German, unlike anything else I've ever read. Premise: a whole world's economy is based on the carpet makers, each of whom spends his entire life weaving a single carpet from his wives' and daughters' hair, for the glory of the galactic emperor. The rest of the book addresses how/why such a world would ever come about.
