December 13: Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To For The First Half Of 2017
I’m cheating slightly with this week’s prompt, primarily because I can only think of five book releases I’m looking forward to in the first half of 2017. As a result, the other five are books I intend to read during the first six months of the year, that have been on my TBR for far, far too long *thinking outside the box works!*
1. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas (May)
Despite not having yet read A Court of Mist and Fury (it’s been lying on my bedside table since May), I’m already excited for the conclusion to this trilogy.
2. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli (April)
I read and adored Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda this year, so I’m very excited to read Becky Albertalli’s second novel.
3. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth (January)
I liked Divergent, disliked Insurgent and have yet to read Allegiant, but I have high hopes for this novel: the ARCs have been getting some great reviews.
4. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor (April)
Whilst I wasn’t at all interested in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, I really want to give Laini Taylor a try, so a new release seems like the perfect way.
5. Wing Jones by Katherine Webber (January)
This novel was promoted at YALC and it sounds like exactly my cup of tea: it’s received some high praise from BookTubers who’ve received early copies.
6. Wonder by R.J. Palacio
I have heard fabulous things about this children’s standalone novel, but it has been pushed down my TBR time and time again.
7. The Death Cure by James Dashner
I read The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials last year, but for some reason I didn’t pick up the conclusion to the trilogy. With the recent release of yet another companion book, I need to get caught up on this series.
8. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
The movie trailer looked really intriguing, and I’ve had the trilogy for an age, so I need to read it before I watch the film.
9. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
This has been sitting on my shelf for so long I’d almost forgotten about it. I’m really feeling YA contemporaries at the moment, so maybe this is the one to get stuck into.
10. All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I’ve been meaning to get to this novel for the longest time: I’ve heard absolutely amazing things from book bloggers I trust implicitly, so I have no doubt I’ll love it too.
