It seems that Vertical also licensed the Vol.2 of Zaregoto, Strangulation. It's already in Amazon preorder.
They didn't say something official though.

Couple of light novel licenses over the last few weeks that aren't in the thread yet:

Vertical licensed https://myanimelist.net/manga/83145/Shigatsu_wa_Kimi_no_Uso__6-nin_no_Études, which they seem to have titled "Your Lie in April", so as to confuse people.
