I am a little late jumping on to the bandwagon, but between getting married recently, and working a part time job things have been pretty hectic where I live. That doesn’t matter however; the important thing is that I am here, and it is officially 2017!
With the start of a new year, it means that there is a whole slew of new books just waiting for us to dive into them and soak up the story waiting there. Now most of these are sequels to books that were released last year (so no debuts here), but that just makes me even more excited for them!
1) The End of Oz by Danielle Paige — March 14th
This is the fourth and final book in the Dorothy Must Die series. Dorothy Must Die is a series that I have been following since it first came out, and was surprised when I heard that there was a fourth book, since I was originally lead to believe that this would be a trilogy. I absolutely love Amy, and following her journey and I definitely can’t wait to see the end of this series.
2) How to be Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life by Lilly Sighn — March 28th
Lilly Sighn is a popular YouTuber, comedian, and a great inspiration to people all over the world. When I heard she was writing a book I wasn’t to excited about it since I don’t tend to like non-fiction books; however, then I heard that Lilly was also doing the audio book for this, and that is what got me on the bandwagon for getting this book. I have been following Lilly for a long time and am super excited to see what she has to say in her debut novel.
3) The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan — May 2nd
Another series continuation, this one for The Trails of Apollo which debuted early last year. In this series Rick Riordan goes back to his roots and we once again find ourselves at Camp Half-Blood following the story of Apollo who has been punished by Zeus and turned into a 16 year old human. The first book in the series The Hidden Oracle was absolutely amazing, but I will warn that there are spoilers for the ending on The Heroes of Olympus, so if you haven’t read that series I would recommend checking it out first.
4) Origin by Dan Brown — September 26th
This book in particular was a complete surprise to me, and it was just lucky enough that I happened to check out Dan Brown’s Goodreads page, or I would have completely missed this! Origins is the fifth book in the Robert Langdon Series which also includes Angels and Demons, The DaVinic Code, The Lost Symbol, and Inferno. I adore the mix of arcane and thriller mystery and after waiting over 3 years for this book to come out.
5) The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan — October 3rd
Yes, another Rick Riordan book, but what can I say he is my favorite author after all. The Ship of the Dead is the third book in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asguard series with the first two book being The Sword of Summer and The Hammer of Thor. This has been an excellent series so far, and I can not wait for this next book to come out.
No Cover Available
6) The Saviour’s Champion by Jenna Moreci — Release date unknown
Jenna Moreci is a popular Youtuber and blogger who gives out writing advice. Her debut novel Eve the Awakening was released by in 2015, and I absolutely loved it. The Savior’s Champion is a different beast all together, being an adult fantasy that centers around a tournament where a number of men compete in a blood battle of the princess’s hand in marriage. The premise sounds right up my alley, and I can’t wait to read more from this highly under appreciated author.
There you have it, the five books that I am most excited for this year. What books are you all excited for?
Hope you enjoyed my first post here on Tumblr and I will be back soon!
