Now that the Christmas knitting project has slowed down a bit (though it’s not quite over just yet, OMG WHY did I insist on knitting), it’s time to throw myself back into the habit of blogging regularly again! Alright, maybe it’ll still be a slow few weeks, because baking is going on in the background, and nothing is quite over until the holidays are over!
In any case, while my reading has also slowed down, I do have books I’ve been eyeing that’s going to be published in 2017. I’ll try not to drool and stuff.
Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To In 2017
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab – OH HELLO. I would never forget this beauty coming out in 2017. I’ve been WAITING FOREVER. Actually, I’ve been waiting since February. But that’s still forever in book-years. And I’m probably going to cry when I finish this book. CRY.
Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh – AHDIEH HAS A NEW BOOK. Yaaaaaaas. I loved her The Wrath & the Dawn duology, and honestly, if the writing is similar in Flame in the Mist, I am TOTALLY GOING TO LOVE HER. Also, the name of her protag is Mariko, which you can totally shorten to Mari. WINNING.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber – Dude. I’ve been seeing this ARC around in NetGalley and I so wanted it. I mean, honestly, interactive circuses and a dark plot. Whaaaaat please give me now.
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth – I’m still slightly angry about the ending of Allegiant, but I do want to read her next series.
The Gatlon School for Vigilantes by Marissa Meyer – I would never say no to anything by Marissa Meyer. Never.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor – OKAY SO I HAVEN’T FINISHED DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE BUT I WILL. And Taylor is always such a lovely writer. And I mean have you read the book jacket summary for this book? It’s utterly gorgeous.
Strange the Dreamer is the story of:
the aftermath of a war between gods and men
a mysterious city stripped of its name
a mythic hero with blood on his hands
a young librarian with a singular dream
a girl every bit as perilous as she is imperiled
alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage.
Welcome to Weep.
Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab – Yep. Another Schwab. Whodathunk.
Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel – I cannot actually wait to listen to the audiobook version of this. The first book was SO GOOD!
Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs – *foams at the mouth* MERCY GOES TO EUROPE. MERCY GOES TO EUROPE.
Now I Rise by Kiersten White – I’ve actually put this book on my TBR immediately after I’d read And I Darken. It wasn’t my favorite book by a mile, but it also posed several questions that I wanted answered. Like can Lada be any more of a badass? CAN SHE? Would totally read it for that.
