This was originally going to be a Top Ten Tuesday post (as some of you may have noticed, I also kinda forgot about it & it posted…), but then I realised that there were WAY too many books I
want need in 2017, so I thought over the next coming weeks I would showcase the books I’m looking forward to next year by “genre”: Fantasy, SciFi, Contemporary, Historical, Diversity and Adult. I say genre loosely, because Adult fiction of course is more like a category, and Diversity shouldn’t be a genre because it should just be a goddamn normal thing, but let’s not get too carried away.
Let’s talk about Fantasy. FANTASY. Thank you, Throne of Glass, for making this my most favourite thing ever. The last couple of years have seen me dive headfirst into YA fantasy, and I love discovering new and old reads, so if you have any recommendations, please send them ALL my way. And 2017 is shaping up to be an amazing year of YA Fantasy. Let’s just not talk about the fact that I cannot deal with the ToG series finishing in 2017, my heart is too broken still. So without further ado, here are the fantasy books in that I need like, right now.
I’m pretty sure 2017 is going to be an epic year, because look at all these beauties! What I love about fantasy so much is that there’s such variety – from retellings to pirates to carnivals to mythical lands, my heart is going to explode all over the place.
Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
Dark Breaks the Dawn by Sara B Larson
Let’s not forget about the books we don’t have covers for yet! I’m so excited for some of these books! I’m sure the covers for them will be just as gorgeous as the books sound as well! There’s going to be royals and dragons and (more!) pirates and dastardly families! And let’s not forget Rhysand, my body is ready.
Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge by Lisa Jensen // // The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King // The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano // Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows // Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts // Untitled (Stream Riders #1) by Sara Raasch // A Court of War & Ruin by Sarah J Maas
2017 also means catching up on great books that were released this year that I never got round to! I’m so lucky to have all put one of these on my Edelweiss list, so there’s definitely going to be a lot of binging coming up over the next couple of months while on uni break.
