Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish, where each week bloggers are given a new top ten list to blog about. Today starts a long string of cool TTT topics, and today we’re focusing on the books coming out during the first half of 2017 that we’re most excited about! This was hard to narrow down, I feel like 2017 is going to be another stellar year in SFF publishing. This is a pretty good mix of stand-alones and second or third in a series books. All titles are linked to Goodreads, so you can add these to your TBR if you’re so inclined. They are also listed chronologically according to release date:
Caraval by Stephanie Garber. Out in the wild: 1/31/17 (Flatiron Books). I’m reading this right now and wow. The hype was not wrong! This is a mix of The Night Circus and Alice in Wonderland. Look for my review next month!
Winter of the Gods (Olympus Bound #2) by Jordanna Max Brodsky. Out in the wild: 2/14/17 (Orbit). Happy Valentine’s Day to ME!! I’m super excited to continue this series about Greek Gods in the present day. This is a fantastic urban fantasy series, check out The Immortals first!
Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey. Out in the wild: 2/14/17 (Tor Books). Valentine’s Day will be very busy next year;-) I was just approved for this book on NetGalley and I couldn’t be more excited. Jacqueline Carey newbie here, folks!
A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic #3) by V.E. Schwab. Out in the wild: 2/21/17 (Tor Books). The finale to Schwab’s super cool series, I’m very excited to read this, but for some reason I forgot to request a review copy so I hope I can find time for it.
Star’s End by Cassandra Rose Clarke. Out in the wild: 3/21/17 (Saga Press). Clarke is without a doubt one of my favorite authors, and I can’t wait to read her latest! She didn’t have a new novel release in 2016 so I’m more than ready:-)
Phantom Pains (The Arcadia Project #2) by Mishell Baker. Out in the wild: 3/21/17 (Saga Press). Book two in Baker’s highly original urban fantasy series. I’m looking forward to more time with kick-ass character Millie.
City of Miracles (The Divine Cities #3) by Robert Jackson Bennett. Out in the wild: 5/2/17 (Broadway Books). Another end to a fantastic series, I’m glad we’ll get to see more of Sigrud in this final book.
Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children #2) by Seanan McGuire. Out in the wild: 6/13/17 (Tor.com). A strange and magical series of novellas that take the portal story in new directions. Highly recommended!
The Queen of Swords (Golgotha #3) by R.S. Belcher. Out in the wild: 6/27/17 (Tor Books). And yet another book three! I guess 2017 is the year I get to finish up some of my favorite series. I love this weird western thing Belcher has going on, although this book appears to be stepping away from the western setting.
Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda. Out in the wild: 6/27/17 (Feiwel & Friends). I feel like I’ve been waiting for Alameda’s follow-up to Shutter forever, but I think it’s only been two years:-)
It’s no surprise that most of these have appeared on my Waiting on Wednesday posts. I just want to make sure you understand how excited I am about all these books!
