May is going to be an amazing month for books: Sarah J Maas, Rick Riordan, and Jenny Han on the 2nd.. then Cassie Clare three weeks later? My little book heart cannot take it. Here are my top 10-ish anticipated reads of 2017.
A Court of Wings and Ruin- Sarah J Maas (May 2nd)
I believe this is the conclusion to the series, so I am really intrigued to see how SJM wraps it up. We’ve never seen a series conclusion from her, so I’m hoping it’s just as incredible as her previous novels. Plus, the cover is gorgeous.
Always and Forever, Lara Jean – Jenny Han (May 2nd)
Although this series was originally only two books, I’m so happy that Jenny Han is writing another.
The Dark Prophecy – Rick Riordan (May 2nd)
Who doesn’t want to see more of Apollo (or Lester) and his trials? If you don’t, we don’t have anything in common.
Lord of Shadows – Cassandra Clare (May 23rd)
Ever since I finished Lady Midnight ten months ago… I’ve needed more. The conclusion just left me dying to know what would happen next with the LA Shadowhunters and our favourite characters from the other related series.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer – Leigh Bardugo (August 29th)
I love Leigh Bardugo. I love Wonder Woman. I cannot express my excitement enough for this novel. (It doesn’t hurt that I’m going to Comic Con as WW this summer.)
Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead – Rick Riordan (October 3rd)
Yes, we’ll have to read about a ship made out of finger and toe nails. Lovely. But we’ll watch Magnus (and friends) fight against the coming storm. Ragnarok.
Tower of Dawn – Sarah J Maas (September 5th)
I don’t even know what it’s called yet, but I need to know what happens to Chaol. I love that SJM set out to write a novella and ended up with a full-length novel. Cannot wait to read this beauty. (Edit: The novel’s name was released.)
Obsidio – Amie Kaufman (October)
How did our characters come to be where they are at the end of Gemina? This is information I expect will be in the third novel and it seems like the finale, so I’m really looking forward to this book. (Edit: This release date has been pushed back to 2018.)
Unnamed Ember in the Ashes 3 – Sabaa Tahir (2018?)
Maybe I’m being optimistic since she hasn’t finished writing it yet but I would love to see the book this year. It was one of the books that I needed immediately upon finishing its predecessor. It’ll probably be 2018. But.. Pretty please?
- Carve the Mark – Veronica Roth
I loved Divergent, so I expect that V.Roth has created another unique world that I can fall in love with.
- Wayfarer – Alexandra Bracken
After reading Passenger, I just knew I needed to know what happens in this series. I got lucky because it was already published, but I still think it deserves a spot on this list.
- Catwoman – Sarah J Maas
Catwoman is not necessarily my favourite, to be honest she’s not even close but I love comics and I can’t wait to see what SJM does with this book.
- Batman – Marie Lu
Love Batman, love Marie Lu, so what could go wrong? Also, can we please get a Babs/Batgirl novel? Thanks.
- Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor
I’ve never read a book by Laini Taylor before, but I hear a lot of good things and I’m intrigued.
- One Dark Throne – Kendare Blake
While the “reveal” at the end of Three Dark Crowns wasn’t surprising at all to me, I do want to know what happens next in the series.
- King’s Cage – Victoria Aveyard
What will happen to Mare? To Maven? Cal? The reds? The silvers? I only have 3 days to wait until it’s out and it is the finale?
- Flame in the Mist – Renee Ahdieh
I loved her Wrath and the Dawn series, so I’m looking forward to this new venture.
Yes, I cheated a little. I couldn’t pick #10, so I posted my honourable mentions. And I’m sure there are plenty more, but this list can’t be too crazy.
