Top Ten Books I'm Looking Forward To For The First Half Of 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
Every once in a while I participate in this one when I either
1) Like the theme, and/or 2) Have the time!

This week's topic:
Ten BOOKS I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO FOR THE FIRST HALF OF 2017! are our top 20 books of 2017 that we can't wait to get our hands on!!!

This one is always so hard because there are so gosh-darn-many books coming out!!!!

I have Goodreads lists through, like, 2020 with books I want. Mandy is only just learning to use Goodreads! So she put together five and I took her extra five slots ^^;;

Together we have 20!

Are you ready??

In order of release date...
(So that you can get some of these into your grubby hands SOON!!!)

1) WINDWITCH by Susan Dennard
Out: January 10, 2017

I really loved TRUTHWITCH and am so excited to help celebrate the release of WINDWITCH next month!

(Helpful hint: Don't read the ARC if you get it because Susan Dennard has said it's missing a really important scene at the novel's end that will change some things!!)

2) CARAVAL by Stephanie Garber
Out: January 31, 2017

You've probably already heard of this one because it has been ALL OVER social media for MONTHS!!! I can't wait to discuss it more with you next month--and see the final book in person!!!!

I'm calling it now, CARAVAL will be one of the 2017's biggest titles, and you will want to have read it!

3) RETURNED by Kimberley Griffiths Little
Out February 7, 2017 

I really loved FORBIDDEN when it came out a couple of years ago and have been highly anticipating the end to this trilogy! Now it's finally here!!!!!! *hops with anticipation*

4) WINTERSONG by S. Jae-Jones
Out February 7, 2017

Another book with the potential to be one of the year's biggest!!! If you're a fan of Labyrinth and romance, you'll want this one! Here's a Sneak Peek to get you salivating now!

5) RISE OF FIRE by Sophie Jordan
Out February 7, 2017

REIGN OF SHADOWS was one of my biggest surprises of 2016! I loved it so much and need the final book in this duology so I can see how it all ends!

Out February 21, 2017

Another final book!!!! I love final books! I loved A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC and haven't had time to read this year's sequel. It's on my Final Dozen list, but the chance of getting to it this month is slim, and I may as well wait until February and gulp the books down together at this point, right!?

7) HUNTED by Meagan Spooner
Out March 14, 2017

This has been on my TBR for a LONG time. If it's a fairy tale, I will come, especially if it's Beauty and the Beast! I've been hearing a lot of great things about this one already, and it's definitely going to be one of the first advance books I read in the new year!!!!

8) FLAME IN THE MIST by Renée Ahdieh
Out May 2, 2017 

1) Renée Ahdieh, acclaimed author of THE WRATH AND THE DAWN!! 2) Mulan!!! 3) That Cover!!!

Out May 2, 2017

The final book!!!! ACOMAF was my favorite book of 2016. ACOTAR was my favorite book of 2015. I really need this finale!!!

10) AVENGED by Amy Tintera
Out May 2, 2017

I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I loved RUINED this year, and had to read every other book Amy Tintera had published. I really can't wait to get my hands on this sequel!!!

11) ROAR by Cora Carmack
Out: June 13, 2017

I've read and enjoyed a few of Cora Carmack's new adult novels and am SO EXCITED to see her dive into YA Fantasy. I need this book so very, very badly. AND THAT COVER!!!

Out: July 11, 2017

I have read and adored SO MANY of the authors listed in this anthology. PLUS, it's all about fairy tale VILLAINS. This is definitely one of my most-anticipated books of 2017, even though anthologies aren't always my thing! #needneedneed

13) LUCKY IN LOVE by Kasie West
Out July 25, 2017 

I just binged this year's Kasie West book P.S. I LIKE YOU and, uhhhh, next February's release BY YOUR SIDE (Which is so cute and should also be on this list!!!!).  Now I'm ready for more of her sweet contemporary smile!!! This one comes out the day before my birthday! #hinthint

14) WICKED LIKE A WILDFIRE by Lana Popovic
Out August 15, 2017

This has been on my list for a while because it sounds AWESOME, and I love a good magical family...and family is involved?? OKAY!!! Plus THIS COVER!!!

15) UNTITLED by Sarah J. Maas
Out September 2017

THE FINAL THRONE OF GLASS BOOK!!!!!!! I can't believe I've been reading this series for six years now! I need to know how it all ends. Gimme, gimme!!!

1) OBSIDIAN AND STARS by Julie Eshbaugh
Out June 13th, 2017
Obsidian and Stars (Ivory and Bone #2)

I loved the first book, Ivory and Bone so much. So this list wouldn't be complete without the sequel on it. Prehistoric times, inspired by Pride and Prejudice. I know this book will give me all the fantasy and fantastic imagery I loved in the first book.

2) THE BOOK JUMPER by Mechthild Glaser
Out January 3rd

The Book Jumper

I haven't been so excited for a book that literally lets you travel inside the pages of a story since Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. It seems whimsical and charming and I am so so ready to dive in.

Expected Release: May 2nd 2017

Violet Grenade

I have been really into Psychological Thrillers since our Mystery week on the blog. The summary for this teen psychological thriller is so intriguing and right up my alley!

4) FROGKISSER! by Garth Nix
Out February 28, 2017

I am a huge Garth Nix fan. HUUUUGE. When he announced this middle grade story I was so excited I could barely contain myself. We can never have too many quirky fairytales after all.

5) HEAR THE WOLVES by Victoria Scott
Expected Release: March 28th, 2017

Hear the Wolves

It's a middle grade book, Scott's first, and a survival story to boot. I haven't read a good middle grade survival since Julie of the Wolves so I was instantly sold on this one. 


What books are you most excited to read???
