Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Happy Tuesday y’all! It’s been a while since I’ve participated and I have SO missed seeing everyone’s lists and making one myself. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017.” There are some great books coming out in the last half of the year (the first half wasn’t too bad either 😉). Narrowing it down to ten is always hard but I did my best. Here are the ten books I’m looking forward to during the last half of 2017. Listed by release date, books link to Goodreads/Amazon (aff.).
Ten Most Anticipated Books for the Second Half of 2017
The Savage Dawn by Melissa Grey (July 11): Have I said recently just how much I love this series?! It’s a perfect blend of urban fantasy/mythology. And the cliffhangers….don’t get me started 😉 I can’t wait to read more from this world and to find out what happens to my favorite characters!
Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta (August 8): I’m a sucker for debut novels and honestly the title and cover alone were enough to get this book on my list. Then I read the blurb….umm I cannot wait to read this!!!! A princess, magician, cross-country adventure….*squee*
The Hummingbird Heart by A.G. Howard (August 15): The author alone is enough reason to have this book on my list. I love Howard’s ability to take a story and make it new and relevant, putting her own, dark spin to it. I loved the Splintered trilogy and so far I’m loving the Haunted Hearts series. Bring on book two 😀
Fallen Heir by Erin Watt (August 28): EASTON IS GETTING HIS OWN BOOK (read that as if I am really screaming it because yes I am that excited!!!)
Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas (Sept. 5): I’m pretty sure this book will make several people’s lists. I love the Throne of Glass series. BUT I’ll be honest, I’m a little intrigued and scared at the idea of Chaol having a book to himself. ESPECIALLY after reading Empire of Storms….must know what happens next ASAP….please?!
Fireblood by Elly Blake (Sept. 12): I devoured Frostblood back in January. This particular genre of dystopia is my favorite. I love the way authors create their own worlds and mythology. I like getting lost in the worlds and this particular world I can’t wait to return to. So happy I didn’t have to wait an entire year to do so!
Warcross by Marie Lu (Sept. 12): I can honestly say that I have no clue what this book is about. After reading The Young Elites series I am a Marie Lu fan for life. Whatever she writes I will read. So that my friends is why this book is on my list 😉
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao (Oct. 10): Debut author, awesome cover, intriguing blurb, Asian mythology….I’m there!
Hardcore Twenty-Four by Janet Evanovich (Nov. 21): This is one of my DEAR authors (Drop Everything and Read) plus a new Stephanie Plum book so yeah it makes the list 😀
The Dark Calling by Kresley Cole (Late Summer….I hope!!!): There is currently no official date for this book AND I still need to read Arcana Rising BUT I refuse to be left hanging again. So with the author’s latest news letter claiming a late Summer release I’m planning a binge session and praying my Death ship sails into the land of HEA. Hey a girl can dream right?
