Happy Tuesday!! Today I’m here to talk about the Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to for the First Half of 2017. Because I’ve been up to my ears in homework for the past three months I’m not very up-to-date with all of the upcoming books being released soon. I can’t list a full ten books, but I do have a few that I’m really looking forward to reading.
Though I still have yet to read the sequel to A Darker Shade of Magic, I’m nevertheless really excited about the prospect of another installment in this unique fantasy series. I’ve loved everything by V.E. Schwab that I’ve read thus far, so I’m really looking forward to reading even more of her work. (Also, how gorgeous is this cover?)
Ever imagined a retelling of Beauty and the Beast with Belle as a hunters? If so, 2017 is your lucky year! This book sounds really fun and unique, especially since I haven’t read very many Beauty and the Beast retellings. Also, Meagan Spooner cowrote the fantastic These Broken Stars with Amie Kaufman, which I loved. Can’t wait to see how this book measures up to my expectations!
After reading When We Collided over the summer and really enjoying it, I’m definitely looking forward to reading more by Emery Lord. I’m always up for a good summer camp story, especially when it’s sure to discuss some hard-hitting topics. Emery Lord knows how to address taboo topics, such as mental illness, that are not often effectively or appropriately addressed in the Young Adult genre.
And…. that’s about all of the upcoming releases I know about! Clearly, I need some recommendations. What upcoming 2017 releases are you highly anticipating? Let me know in the comments section below!
