This year just like last year, we are all waiting for that certain book to make it onto the shelves at our favorite book store. We all have money saved up for books that don’t even have titles or covers yet. Does that stop us? No. In this post I will be sharing with you some of my most anticipated reads of 2017 and just like I said some of them don’t have titles or covers yet, but they sure do have dates!
1) Caraval by Stephanie Garber (January 31)
Two sister, Scarlett and Tella, have always lived on a small island with their cruel father. And now her father has arrange her to be married, making her leave her dreams behind, including the one dream to see Caraval. A once-a-year game where the audiance participates in the game. But this year she gets an invitation to be part of the game. Enlisting the help of a sailor name Jullian, Scarlett grabs her sister and leaves for Caraval. When they get there her sister is kidnapped as part of the game. Now her and Jullian must find her sister and if she doesn’t by the fifth night, consequences will happen and her sister will be gone forever. Which makes is Scarlett wonder, is this really just a game or is it more real then she was led to believe.
2) Fire Color One by Jenny Valentine (January 31)
Irish loves to light a nice fire. She is a pyromaniac. When her mother finds her setting off one to many fires, she is sent away to her fathers before she can get in some big trouble, or so she is told to believe. Irish has never met her father or her good things about him, but when she gets there she finds out something no one told her….. he is dying. And her mom wants to take his life savings of over millions of dollars. Now Irish is forced to live with him to help her mom get the money, but the longer she stays, the more she notices that the things she was told about him aren’t true. The man she has been taught to hate is not the same person she see before her now.
3) Roseblood by A. G. Howard (January 10)
From the amazing author that brought you the Splintered series, A.G. Howard is back to give us another retelling. In a modern day spin off of The Phantom of the Opera, seventeen-year old Rune Germin has strange afflictions related to her operatic talent. Hoping to help the problem, Rune’s mother sends her to a French art school her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to the Phantom of the Opera. When she gets there she befriends the masked Thorn, a violinist who not only guides her through her dreams, but also knows who she is behind her own mask. But now Thorn has to has to make his own choice: lead Rune to her demise or face the wrath of the phantom that has haunted the opera house for years.
4) The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordon ( May 2)
Now for some reason I could not get the real cover to load on here but you can always look it up on Goodreads for yourself. Since this is the second book in the series I won’t be putting the description of this book up to save someone from some spoiler, but instead give you a summery of what the series in a whole is about. The Trials of Apollo series is about Zeus blaming Apollo for the latest issues that came about in the The Heroes of Olympus series and punishes him. His punishment is to go down to earth as an acne faced boy. Apollo doesn’t worry too much, at first, because this has happened before, but suddenly he is forced to be a save to a little girl and ends up on his own quest to get his immortality back. Fun right?
5) Illuminae book #3 by Amie Kaufmin and Jay Kristoff ( September)
At this point in time there is no information about the third book of the Illuminae Files besides the month it should be on shelves. Much like the other two books it will be written through chat rooms, emails, and other ways of communication. Which in my opinion makes the book even more unique. From what I can understand at this point is that we will be getting two new people to and two new points of views. Hopefully we will get more information soon.
6) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas #6 ( September)
Again another book we know very little about. Well besides the fact that it is the last book (or so we think) and it will probably leave us crying into our pillows long hours into the night. With the end of book five leaving us in pieces, will our pieces be mended or will they be made smaller? How many of our ships will be left intact? How the heck are they going to explain all this to Chaol when they find him because apparently we didn’t need to know what was going on with him? And most importantly, does Dorian still eat like a girl after all this is over? Tune in next time on Sarah J. Maas Hates our Guts.
7) Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes #6 ( November)
Our last book is another one that will be the end of a series. A defiant favorite it of mine. Once again we know nothing about what will happen to our mix and match group. All I can hope for now is my Jonas to be okay (I’m reading the 5th book right now so for all I know he already is). It’s up to Morgan to pick what happens and if only I could stop her, but who knows what will happen in the end. I had a great idea for an ending, but Morgan ruined it in like book five so… I guess we will see what happens.
That is all for my most anticipated books of 2017. I’ll be hopefully posting updates for some of the books soon when we hear more about them. What are your most anticipated books of 2017? Are you ready for some of these great series to end? Leave me a comment and tell me.
Fly on and Happy reading
