All The Books I Need in 2017: The Fantasy Edition

Posted December 13, 2016 by Hannah in uncategorized / 4 Comments

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.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber // Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas  

Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean

Daughter of The Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller // Poison’s Kiss by Breanna Shields 

Hunted by Meagan Spooner 



The Beast Is An Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale //Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

 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.


The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye// The Shadow Queen by C.J Redwine

 Burning Glass by Kathyrn Purdie

Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers // Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan //

  1. This is an EXCELLENT list! I am sad about Throne of Glass coming to an end as well! I’m super excited to see how it ends though! I have read Caraval and Daughter of the Pirate King for 2017 releases and they are both so so good! Especially Daughter of the Pirate King! You have to read that one ASAP!!! On your 2016 list I’ve read The Crown’s Game, Assassin’s Heart, Sword and Verse, and A Shadow Bright and Burning and they were all pretty good except I didn’t like Sword and Verse.

    Some fantasy books that I’m looking forward to in 2017 besides basically all the ones on your list would be The Dragon’s Price, A Crown of Wishes, Given to the Sea.. So many! I also have too many from 2016 on my shelf that I still need to read. I don’t even want to think about the number!

    Historical is one of my favorite genres, I will be looking forward to that list from you! 🙂

    • Thank you!!! Yes, I can’t believe ToG ends this year, I’d don’t know what I will do with myself! I’m so glad DotPK is so good, I am really looking forward to it! Can’t wait to share my historical list, I hope you love it!!!! <3

  2. ALL of these books look SO good! I’m especially looking forward to The Shadow Queen, Caraval, Sword and Verse, and so many more you listed! I love how you’ve broken your 2017 TBR lists down into genres! Happy reading! 😀
