TTT: Anticipated 2017

For more information on Top Ten Tuesday, click here.

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.

  1. So many good books on here that I’m excited to read next year. I have a copy of Caraval which looks really good and I need to catch up with the Briggs series – I didn’t get to the last one yet!
    Lots to look forward to in 2017.
    Lovely list.

    1. Definitely get to the latest Mercy Thompson book! It was one of my favorites hands down, and I swear the covers for the books keep getting better and better!

      And I cannot wait to see the reviews for Caraval! I’ll have to find a copy at the library at some point.


    1. Haha, I love Lada solely because she IS unhinged and bloodthirsty, lol! It’s always fun to see girls portrayed to be just as ruthless and anti-heroic as some of the more diabolical male characters.

    1. I always feel guilty adding more than one Schwab book on my list. But I can’t help it! I almost added the second book of Vicious, too, but there really are so many books to look forward to in the next year!


        1. Maybe it’s 2018. She hasn’t mentioned it as often as ACOL and Our Dark Duet. I got way too excited over what books of hers is coming out, so I limped Vengeful in on top of the others, lol!


  2. Oh I had no idea Marissa Meyer was writing a new book! Will be sure to check that one out. and maybe 2017 will be the year I finally manage to read Schwab’s books. Last year I kept ordering them and they kept getting lost in the mail. So weird.

    1. “Lost in the mail” and Schwab books, huh? Might be a conspiracy, or somebody in the postal service really wanted to read some Schwab *wags eyebrows*. But eep on your luck! Fingers crossed 2017 is your Schwab year.

      I didn’t know about Meyer’s new series, either, and saw that on the 2017 list, so I definitely had to add it here!


    1. She claims she’s a slow writer, but I’ve been following her Instagram for the most part, and her schedule is brutal. I almost wish and don’t wish I had deadlines like hers, haha. But yeah, book covers are getting better and better each year, which is great!


    1. I did review it, yes! I wasn’t as crazy over it but I do recommend the book anyway, especially for Lada.

      1. I have heard many things about it but so mixed :p People either love or hate it so I’m glad that you still recommend it even though it wasn’t the best. Makes me curious instead of hesitant 🙂

        Thanks for the link 😀 I’ll read it asap!
