Good morning/afternoon/evening/night to all of you reading, depending on where you are.
I thought I’d do something a little different for today’s blog, something I’ve never done before, and something that makes me excited for the year ahead! So 2017 is going to be a good year for books, or at least I’m hoping it will, because I’ve been having a look at some of the anticipated releases for this year. And honestly, it makes me so excited to see all of them! So I’m going to make a list, yes another list (lol), about all the books I can’t wait to be released/to read in 2017!
1. Lord of Shadows: The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare
I already mentioned this one in my ‘Wishlist Wednesday’ blog yesterday but I honestly cannot wait for this to be released. I haven’t yet read ‘Lady Midnight’ which is the first book in The Dark Artifices series but it’s down for my either April/May monthly reading list in anticipation for this one.
Release Date: May 23rd
2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
This one has been on my Wishlist since I subscribed to ‘Hailey in Bookland’ on YouTube, I’ve mentioned her already but I love her reviews of books and how honest they are. But I definitely wanted to read this book after it was in one of her videos and she did a vague sort of synopsis of the book and it really intrigued me.
Release date: March 28th
3. Hunted by Meagan Spooner
I first saw this and thought it was another YA novel about a girl with a bow and arrow/almost a spoof of Red Riding Hood… how wrong I was! It’s actually a re-telling of the Beauty and the Beast story (umm, hello, who doesn’t like re-told stories of fairytales?!) so I was instantly hooked. Need to definitely buy this once it’s released!
Release date: March 14th (so soon!!)
4. A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
This is the 2nd book, I believe, in The Star Touched Queen series and, again, although I haven’t yet read that book/nor do I own it yet, I will eventually buy both books and get to reading them. The story to me is super intriguing and sounds magical, so I definitely need to invest in these.
Release date: March 28th
5. One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
THIS! This I really excited for! I’ve got ‘Three Dark Crowns’ in my list to read either next month or in May but the release for the 2nd book in this series is too far away! I’m just going to have to re-read it before the next one comes out. I’m just really stoked for this come out because both the synopsis’ are very mysterious and sound amazing so, yeah, definitely also going to have to buy this when it comes out.
Release date: September 19th
That is all the books that I’m really excited for, for now, and I’m sure the list will increase as the year goes and I get into my book series and more publication dates are set. I hope you enjoyed reading through this list and feel free to give me some suggestions on any other books that are being released this year! I’d love to hear what you’re looking forward to reading this year too!
