I had such a good response to Part 1 of this post that I decided to do it again! Truth is, there are good books being released ALL the time and it's nearly impossible to keep track of them all. Many of them are illustrated by friends of mine, which is SO amazing!  It's a great thing to be supportive of your peers and I am so happy for each and every one of them.

That being said, you can most certainly look forward to a Part 3 - 4 - 5... etc. :)
