As 2016 draws to a close, I am thinking about all the different 2017 releases that I cannot wait to read. I have created a list of the top ten books I am excited to be released in 2017. The books that are listed are rated.
Warning: Phrases like really excited, anticipating, so excited, obviously I will be reading will be used frequently in this post.
10. Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
Release Date: May 23, 2017
I will admit that I am pretty much over the Shadowhunter books, but I still will most likely pick up the sequel to Lady Midnight.
9. Note Worthy by Riley Redgate
Release Date: May 2nd, 2017
This is a book about a girl attending a Performing Arts school. The only problem is that she is an alto, which is basically a curse in the musical theatre world. Being a theatre nerd and alto myself, I am beyond excited to pick up this new release.
8. History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
Release Date: January 17, 2017
This book has been getting rave reviews from people that received early copies, so I am obviously going to have to pick this book up. I have not read Adam Silvera’s More Happy Than Not yet, but I definitely will be in 2017.
7. Warcross by Marie Lu
Release Date: No Release Date Yet
Even though I was not impressed with Marie Lu’s newest title The Midnight Star, I still have loved every other book she has published. I will definitely be reading this book when it comes out (even though I have no idea what it is about).
6. Love And First Sight by John Sundquist
Release Date: January 3, 2017
I loved Josh Sundquist’s We Should Hang Out Sometime, so I am obviously really excited for his newest novel. It sounds funny and heart warming, and I cannot wait to read it!
5. RoseBlood by A.G. Howard
Release Date: January 10, 2017
Not only has this book getting rave reviews, but it is also a Phantom of the Opera retelling. Do I need anymore convincing? No I do not.
4. Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz
Release Date: April 11, 2017
A Hamilton retelling by a well known author. Sign me up please. I love Alexander and Eliza’s relationship so I cannot wait to get my hands on this story.
3. Now I Rise by Kiersten White
Released Date: June 27, 2017
And I Darken was one of my favorite books of 2016 (spoiler alert for an upcoming post!), so I am super excited for the second book in the Conquerors trilogy. This series is going in fantastic directions and I highly recommend picking it up.
2. Stranger Than Fanfiction by Chris Colfer
Release Date: March 7, 2017
I love Chris Colfer. He is one of my favorite actors from the show Glee. I read his middle grade book The Wishing Spell, and I enjoyed it. I was flailing with excitement when I heard he was coming out with this new young adult title.
1. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
Release Date: April 11, 2017
If you have read any of my previous posts, you probably know of my love for Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. Obviously I will be reading her newest book as soon as it comes out.
Those were my top 10 most anticipated books of 2017. What books are you excited for? I would love to know!
