From the looks of it, 2017 is going to be a good year in terms of books for me. I’m already ecstatic about thirteen books that will come out throughout the next year and I’m definitely going to pick each of them up.
Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist
I read We Should Hang Out Sometime, Josh’s autobiography earlier this year and I LOVED it so of course I’m automatically inclined to pick up his debut novel but the premise of it just made me even more excited to pick it up.
Love and First Sight tells the story of a blind sixteen year old named Will who gets the opportunity to have a experimental surgery to make him be able to see again. After he gets the surgery, he realizes that his whole life might be a lie.
History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
I read More Happy Than Not, Adam’s first novel and I honestly wasn’t the biggest fan, but the synopsis intrigues me SO much and I can hardly wait to dive into it.
History follows OCD-afflicted Griffin who is grieving the lost of his ex-boyfriend, Theo who was drowned, but to learn more about Theo, Griffin befriends Jackson, Theo’s boyfriend before he dies. A complicated friendship begins as Griffin learns what love really means.
By Your Side by Kasie West
I haven’t read a book from West before but this one sounds super intriguing and I can’t wait to pick it up when I’m in the mood for a fluffier contemporary.
By Your Side is about a girl who accidentally gets locked in a library over night with a mysterious boy and must find a way to escape.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I don’t know much about this book other than it’s inspired by the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.
It’s also already been optioned for a film if that tells you how much people are liking it two months before it’s released.
At The Edge of the Universe by Shaun David Hutchinson
If you already don’t know, Shaun’s newest book We Are the Ants is my favorite book of the year so I’m most likely going to read anything that he publishes. This one sounds really interesting so that’s a plus too.
At the Edge of the Universe is about Tommy and Ozzie who have been best friends since the second grade but one day, Tommy vanishes, erased by the minds of everyone that knew him- not including Ozzie.
Perfect by Cecilia Ahern
Perfect is the sequel to Flawed, a dystopian novel that I read last year and by my own surprise- really enjoyed it.
I’m not too sure if I will read this soon after it comes out because I need to reread Flawed before I read it so it’s fresh in my mind.
Flawed is about Celestine North who lives in a society where everyone is forced to be perfect and if you do something wrong, you are forced to get your flesh branded with an “F” armband for “Flawed”.
Letters to The Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
I don’t really know much about this one other than it’s a dark type of romance story, so I’m definitely going to jump on that.
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
I read Albertalli’s previous book Simon vs. The Homosapiens Agenda last year and I really loved it so I’m immediately excited to read what’s to come from her next.
I’m going to be honest…I’m not entirely sure what this book is about, so…..
The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich
I’m just so excited to read this, from the moment that I read the synopsis I was hooked and I definitely want it in my hands ASAP!
The Love Interest is about Caden and Dylan, who work for a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies.
Both Caden and Dylan are living in the outside world for the first time, they are well trained and on the top of their games. They have to be because whoever the girl doesn’t choose will die.
What both of the boys don’t expect is to fall for each other- which could mean the end of their lives.
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
This is the sequel to Lady Midnight which was my second favorite of 2016 so of course I’m going to be excited to pick this one up as soon as I can!
They Both Die in The End by Adam Silvera
This book sounds SO good! I can’t wait to read it.
Set in a near-future New York City where a service alerts people on the day they will die, the novel follows teens Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio, who meet using the Last Friend app and are faced with the challenge of living a lifetime on their End Day.
The Inconceivable Life of Quinn by Marianna Baer
(Releases: TO BE DETERMINED)
The only thing I know about this book is that it’s basically a virgin Mary type of retelling.
It’s about a sixteen year old girl- daughter of a high profile politician who becomes pregnant, but here’s the catch- she’s a virgin.
Fall Boys & Dizzy in Paradise by Jandy Nelson
(Releases: TO BE DETERMINED)
I haven’t read anything from Nelson before but I’ve heard mostly good things so I’m definitely keeping this on my radar.
Fall Boys follows a trio of siblings who’s father disappeared years earlier and they have given up on finding out what happened to him- until a mysterious girl shows up and changes everything, that is.
