Top 10 Anticipated Reads 2017

2017 is here!! And so are some of the 2017 new book releases. My TBR list is already growing, so I figure it’s only fair if yours grows too. While there are TONS of books I’m excited to have come out, I’m going to try and narrow it down to just 10. They aren’t listed in any order. This list is based on The Broke & The Bookish weekly prompt. Are some of these your most anticipated reads? What are you looking forward to reading?

  1. Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I was able to read this book in 2016 and it was MY FAVORITE READ OF THE YEAR! Yes, I loved it (and plan to review it this Friday). Caraval is about two sisters, Scarlett and Tella who escape from their abusive father to Caraval, a magical and interactive performance/game that grants the winner one wish. When Tella is kidnapped after arriving on the island where Caraval is held, Scarlett chooses to team up with Julian, the mysterious guy that helped the sisters escape, in order to enter the game and find who took her sister. This book was captivating and beautifully written, plus there will be a sequel!

  1. King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

King’s Cage is the third book in the Red Queen series, which I loved! Red Queen follows Mare, a Red who is suppressed by the Silver. Silver are considered elite due to the power’s their silver blood gives them. When Mare finds herself working in the palace for the Silver’s she hates it’s revealed that she has powers despite being a Red. As the elite claim her as a long lost Silver to cover up her true background, it provides her the perfect opportunity to work with a rebel group who calls themselves the Red Guard. There’s blood, romance, and the best elements/tropes from YA mashed together for an action-packed series.

New Book by Kristin Cashore!!!

Graceling was published in 2008. Bitterblue, the last book in the Graceling series, came out in 2012. That is five years of reading Kristin Cashore’s blog and waiting – seeing the posts about book plotting, revisions, fun things in her life, revisions, her opinions about things of the world, and more revisions, and more of me waiting. BUT THE TIME HAS FINALLY COME, Kristin Cashore has announced a new book will be published THIS YEAR!!!! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy reading her blog posts, but when I read the news about a new book I squealed, did a happy dance, added the book to my Goodreads, and read the announcement again.

July TBR List

FullSizeRenderHow is July already here? Please tell time to pause for a while (maybe so I could get through my whole TBR pile). This month I’m hoping to focus on completing series that I’m in the middle of because I’ve needed to finish them for way too long. It’s all of those pretty new covers that distract me! Plus, I’d love to finish any ARCs I have coming out in August so you guys can read what I think sooner. Continue reading
