My Most Anticipated Releases for Winter 2017 || Because 2017 Looks Like a Good Year for Books

My Most Anticipated Releases.png

Happy 2017, blogglings! We have finally left 2016 behind us (which was a somewhat crappy year, both, like, human-wise and books released wise), but now we get to go headfirst into 2017, and therefor all the new releases.

I’m super excited for stuff this year, because A) ALL THE FANTASY BOOKS, and B) It looks like there are going to be a lot of good diverse books. Including a couple of books with asexual protogonists, which I’m really excited about (because I, the disembodied voice that speaks to you through this computer screen, am asexual).

And, because I’m all about organization (not really. I’m just trying to be more organized this year), these books are in order of when they come out.



RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

January 10th

I actually forgot this was coming out which is horrible because I absolutely adored the Splintered trilogy, and I’ve never read a Phantom of the Opera retelling before, so this should be interesting! Plus, that cover. 


Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson

January 24th

It sounds super interesting, and I feel like it’s based off of a real story? But it’s about a black girl who was convicted of killing a white baby when she was only nine, and now she’s older (seventeen, I think?) and pregnant, and the state is threatening to take her baby so she does something? Which is probably a horrible summary of this but it’s gotten great reviews so far.


City of Saints & Thieves

January 24th

It’s about…thieves. And cities?


The You I’ve Never Known by Ellen Hopkins

January 24th

It’s about a girl who’s lived with her dad, thinking that her mom left when she was a baby but it turns out her dad kidnapped her. Her mom finds her and wants her to come back with her, but she still loves her dad and isn’t sure if her mom is telling the truth.


Silver Stars by Michael Grant

January 31st

The second novel in an alternate universe historical fiction about if women were allowed to fight in WWII. I didn’t love Front Lines (it was really slow moving at points), but I’m still totally looking forward to Silver Stars.


Wait For Me by Caroline Leech

January 31st

It’s about a Scottish girl who lives on a farm that has a German prisoner of war sent to (apparently to work?). Apparently it’s a forbidden romance type thing but I think it should be interesting.


Caraval by Stephanie Garber

January 31st

It’s about a one-night magical circus, which sounds awesome, and it’s gotten great reviews so far and



King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

February 7th

Red Queen was fine, I liked Glass Sword more, and if the pattern continues King’s Cage will be amazing. Plus, I totally want to see Mare be all badass and stab Maven.


American Street by Ibi Zoboi

February 14th

It’s about a girl who’s mom got detained by immigration so she has to go live with her cousins in Detroit.


A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White

February 14th

It’s about the first girl to ever get signed to a Major League Baseball team. It’s about the pressure of society thanks to media, the sexism that revolves around profession sports. It’s been compared to Laurie Halse Anderson, so, y’know, hopefully it’s good.


Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

February 21st

I’m so, so excited for this one. It’s about a shy, nerdy scientist who’s 20-something in line to the throne, and then every other person who could take the throne is assassinated at a party or feast or something so the MC has to become queen.


10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac

February 28th

It’s a book about a girl with anxiety and a panic disorder. AND it has a f/f romance which is awesome.



Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

March 28th

It’s about podcasters, and it has a demisexual MC and it’s gotten really great ratings and WHY HAS IT TAKEN THIS LONG TO GET TO THE US?


The Ship From Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig

March 28th

SO EXCITED FOR THIS. The Girl from Everywhere was super good and full of maps.

There are more, of course, but I’m running out of time and these are the ones at the top of the list.

What’re some 2017 books you’re looking forward too? Do our lists share anything?

Happy Tuesday,
