Last year I posted about books that were being turned into movies that I was excited about, but this year I’m much more excited to just to get new books to read. During my research I didn’t see a whole lot of books that were being turned into movies for 2017 so I figured this would be a better list. Plus this year I ended reading an all-time high of 70 books! I hope to keep the streak going in 2017 with these new releases.
Frostblood by Elly Blake coming out January 10, 2017 is the debut novel for Blake and I actually received an ARC of this book courtesy of NetGalley. I could not put this book down and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great YA to kick off your reading in 2017. This book hasn’t even come out yet and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next in the series.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas coming out May 2, 2017 is the third book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I just finished the second book, A Court of Mist and Fury, and was blown away at how good this series is. Sarah J. Maas is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors as I’m also catching up on her Throne of Glass series.
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han coming out May 2, 2017 is the third book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series. The first book in the series was our book club choice for April of this past year and typically I don’t love these kind of books, but this series is adorable and I’m so happy that Han decided to write a third book for it.
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth coming out January 17, 2017 is a new sci-fi book that sounds like everything I loved from Roth in the Divergent series. While I have heard some not so good things about this book on BookTube, I’m willing to give this book a chance solely based on the fact that I loved the Divergent series.
Kings Cage by Victoria Aveyard coming out February 7, 2017 is the third book in the Red Queen series which I absolutely loved. I actually broke my own rule with this series and bought the kindle books instead of waiting for them to become available at the library so I know I will more than likely have this book day one.
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller coming out February 28, 2017. This is the debut novel from Tricia Levenseller and I am really intrigued by the description of this book. When the ruthless pirate king learns of a legendary treasure map hidden on an enemy ship, his daughter, Alosa, knows there’s only one pirate for the job—herself. Leaving behind her beloved ship and crew, Alosa deliberately facilitates her own kidnapping to ensure her passage on the ship, confident in her ability to overcome any obstacle. After all, who’s going to suspect a seventeen-year-old girl locked in a cell? Then she meets the (surprisingly perceptive and unfairly attractive) first mate, Riden, who is charged with finding out all her secrets. Now it’s down to a battle of wits and will . . . . Can Alosa find the map and escape before Riden figures out her plan?
Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer coming out April 11, 2017 is the first book in a duology darker retelling of Sleeping Beauty with two heroines. I absolutely love retellings and this one sounds so interesting. Aurora has a half-sister, Isabelle, who is trying to find Aurora’s prince to wake her from her sleep and save the two kingdoms.
Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh coming out May 16, 2017 sounds somewhat like a Mulan retelling and has me very interested.
The End of Oz by Danielle Paige coming out March 14, 2017 is the final book in the Dorothy Must Die series which I devoured at the beginning of last year. The concept of this series is that Dorothy has gone mad with power and has destroyed Oz and our main character Amy must take her down. Can you tell I really like retellings?
I’m sure there are more books coming out in 2017 that will have me excited, but for now these are the top ones on my list. Since I had such a successful reading year in 2016 I’m hoping I can get to reading all the new releases on my list in 2017.
