Most Anticipated Reads of 2017
As I've continually read more and more, I've gotten to points in series where I am left waiting for the next book to be released, or just waiting for one of my favorite authors to release their next book. In this list, we have upcoming books for the rest of this year that I can't wait to get my hands on.
Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6) by Sarah J. Maas
I started reading the Throne of Glass series last year and it's safe to say that it's my favorite series of all time (aside from Harry Potter obviously). This book focuses on Chaol after the events in Queen of Shadows and takes place in the same time frame as Empire of Storms, so as Empire of Storms starts, so do the events in this book. I won't say anything else so that I don't spoil anything, but I'm so eagerly waiting for this book to come out, and I of course already have it on preorder.
The Ship of the Dead (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #3) by Rick Riordan
Rick Riordan is another favorite author from my childhood. I grew up reading Percy Jackson and then the Heroes of Olympus, so when this series began I was obviously interested. This book wraps up a trilogy following Magnus Chase, the cousin of Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson series, who is the son of the Norse god Frey. Again, I won't say anything about it so I don't spoil it, but I'm most definitely excited for this finale to come out.
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie Stiefvater is the author of one of my favorite series of all time, The Raven Cycle. This book follows three cousins of the Soria family who are able to perform miracles. There is Beatriz, the girl without feelings, Daniel, who performs miracles for everyone but himself, and Joaquin, who runs a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo. They all try and perform and find miracles in their town of Bicho Raro, Colorado, but in Bicho Raro, things are not always as they may seem. I absolutely loved The Raven Cycle so I can't wait to see what she has created this time.
Neighborhood Girls by Jessie Ann Foley
Jessie Ann Foley wrote one of my favorite books of all time, The Carnival at Bray, so I'm so excited to see how this story turns out. This book follows Wendy Boychuck, the daughter of a Chicago cop who has just been arrested for shady criminal practices. This turns her world upside down and she realizes that to avoid the reputation of her father, she needs to make one for herself. I read The Carnival at Bray in a day so I'm hoping this will also be a quick one-day-read.
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
When John Green announces his new book I'm pretty sure almost everyone on the planet freaked out. I've read all of his books and loved them all, (except An Abundance of Katherines, but let's not talk about that) so I'm so ready for another book of his. The story is about friendship, unexpected reunions, Star Wars fanfiction, and tuatara (a reptile native to New Zealand). It seems just like most of his books, really weird, but also can totally work out. I'm already on a hold list for this at my library and will read nonstop when I get it.
So there we have it, my most anticipated reads for the rest of the 2017 year. Stay tuned because in December I'll have all my anticipated reads for 2018, and at the moment there's a lot and that list can only continue to grow.
