Hello again my fellow bookworms! I doubt anyone would remember at this point, but at the very beginning of the year (when I first started this blog), I posted the first half of my long list of 2017 book releases that I’m looking forward to. Well, I’m a bit late posting this, but today I’m bringing you a list of all the books releasing in the second half of 2017 that I’m excited for!
Which, if you think about it, means that I should be celebrating my 6th month blogiversary! I’m so proud of how far my little blog has already come, I haven’t always been able to post as frequently as I would like to, but I truly appreciate everyone that has taken time out of their day to read my silly posts and talk to me about books. I’ve already made some great friends, and that alone is something to be thankful for!
Anyways, on to the books! Clicking on a book’s title will take you to its Goodreads page.
The Dragons of Nova by Elise Kova: July 11th
This is the sequel to Alchemists of Loom, one of my favorite reads of 2016, so I’m ridiculously excited for this book! I’m also planning on going to Elise’s tour stop in St. Petersburg on the 14th, which hopefully I can write up a small post about after attending!
The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana: July 18th
I’m definitely not alone in my excitement for this book, lately I’ve been seeing it everywhere on bookstagram and book Twitter! I own the author’s first book, Mirror in the Sky, but have yet to read it. The covers for both of her books are just stunning though!
Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody: July 25th
I hadn’t heard of this one until I started seeing it in people’s BookCon hauls, but I think after reading Caraval I can say that I too am a sucker for carnival/circus themed books. This one really seems like it’s perfect for me though, since it has to do with dark magic! I have a very strong suspicion that this is going to be in a certain July subscription box that I already ordered….
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo: August 29th
Oh, you know, this is just my MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF ALL FREAKING TIME (with only Language of Thorns as a rival). Leigh is my Queen, my goddess, and everything that is holy in my life so you could say I’m a *little* excited for this book. Just a little.
The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee: August 29th
Unfortunately my eagerness for this book will be overshadowed on release day by Wonder Woman, but I really loved The Thousandth Floor last year and after that cliffhanger I NEED to find out what happens next! I’ve also been in the mood for a teen drama like this lately, so I hope August 29th rolls around soon!
Aka the month where I go broke and my TBR officially collapses on me
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera: Sept. 5th
I feel kinda guilty putting this one on the list…cause I may or may not own both of Adam Silvera’s books and have neglected to read either of them. But what can I say, this book has a really intriguing premise and I’m a sucker for hype.
Fireblood by Elly Blake: Sept. 12th
I just recently read Frostblood and really enjoyed it, so I’m excited to see what’s in store for Ruby in the sequel. Plus, I’m totally in love with the covers for this series!
Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows: Sept. 12th
I know there was some mild controversy a while back surrounding this book’s cover, but the story seems like so much fun! I never read enough books with dragons in them, and I loved Jodi’s Incarnate trilogy when I read it a loooong time ago, so I’m pumped to read something new from her.
Warcross by Marie Lu: Sept. 12th
Okay, I know I’m entirely alone in my feelings when I say this, but I’m on the fence about this book. The whole book community is going nuts over Warcross right now, but I’ve never been a fan of video game themed books. The only ones I’ve read have bored me to tears. BUT, the hype has been getting to me, and I do love Marie Lu, so I’m sure I’ll eventually give this book a shot!
Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu: Sept. 19th
As soon as I heard that this book is about a girl that starts a feminist revolution at her school, I knew I needed it. It seems pretty kickass and I can’t wait!
Invictus by Ryan Graudin: Sept. 26th
Okay, the fact that this is a time travel book is pretty cool, BUT THE COVER. I’m obsessed with it. Invictus also seems to have an awesome group of protagonists, which I always enjoy reading about!
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins: Sept. 26th
I’m a huge fan of the Anna/Lola/Isla trilogy, so when Stephanie announced she was writing a new book I flipped out! Even though it’s not a romance, I can’t wait to read what is surely gonna be an amazing book.
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo: Sept. 26th
It’s another Grishaverse book written by my Queen. I already have a gorgeous sampler of this book and I think I’ll probably cry when I get to hold the finished version in my hands. September is gonna wreck my bank account, LOL.
The month where I attempt to recover from September’s expenditures but the YA world takes no mercy on me
27 Hours by Tristina Wright: Oct. 3rd
I first heard about this book when people were posting pictures from Tristina’s signing at BookCon, and ever since I’ve been dying to read it. This sci-fi features an entirely queer cast, and so far I’ve heard only glowing praise.
Brooding YA Hero by Carrie DiRisio: Oct. 3rd
Honestly, I’m not even sure what this book is exactly about, or what format it’s in, but I absolutely love Broody over on Twitter so I will read anything that features him or his hilarious sarcasm.
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao: Oct. 10th
For some reason, I can never remember what this book is actually about, but I do know that it’s an East Asian fantasy and that alone sounds interesting enough for me! The hype for it is real, so if everyone else is excited that obviously means I gotta be excited too.
Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi: Oct. 31st
This Nigerian-influenced fantasy sounds so incredibly cool! The cover drew me in when I first saw it on Netgalley, but the story itself seems even more intriguing. Plus I really think the YA community really needs more fantasies that aren’t based on Western culture.
And that’s it for my anticipated 2017 releases! I strangely don’t have anything for November or December, but that’s probably a good thing considering I’m gonna be wiped after September and October. I already have several 2018 releases that I’m hoping to snag ARCs of at YALLFest though, the YA book cycle never ends!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post, but I have to say that I don’t think creating one giant list of anticipated releases works very well. I think in the future I’ll try out some memes like Waiting on Wednesday, which take much less time to write and are probably more enjoyable to read. I’m still pretty new at blogging though, so I’m constantly figuring things out!
What book releases are you looking forward to this fall? What is/was your number one anticipated release of the year? Are you also excited for any of the books on my list?
