I was going to post this for TTT, but then I realised I had 30 books on my list because I AM AN INDECISIVE TRASH CAN (there’s so many good books coming out next year?). Then if you follow me on Twitter you would have seen that my little sister ended up in hospital (she’s home now!) so on top of that and Christmas shopping I just didn’t have time (it’s why I’ve been away for the past week). So you get it now instead and in two parts! Yay!
City of Saints & Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson – [Jan 24] – A girl and her mother flee the Congo for Kenya. Her mother is shot and she’s after revenge and starts working as a thief with a local gang. Plus anything involve music is a huge win.
The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel – [March 7] – Intense family drama/mystery about a girl who’s mother runs away and then years later her cousin goes missing. She has to figure out if it’s connected and what’s really going on.
Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger – [June 1] – A pop star meets their #1 fan, but no one is who they say they are. According to the blurb it’s like a Catfish episode that takes a “deadly turn”. I love internet culture so I’m extremely interested in this.
Final Girls by Riley Sager – [June 29] – A bunch of girls who survive different massacres. One of those girls shows up dead. I LIVE FOR THIS TROPE.
Beautiful Broken Things by Kim Savage – [Feb 21] – Two sisters commit suicide and a boy that was in love with one of them discovers a trail notes that she left behind.
Black Mad Wheel by Josh Malerman – [May 23] – A band is conscripted by the US government to the go into the desert to find the source of this mysterious sound. I loved Josh Malerman’s first book, Bird Box, so I’m really excited for this.
The Burning World by Isaac Marion – [Feb 7] – THE SEQUEL TO WARM BODIES THAT I NEVER THOUGHT I WAS GETTING. I AM SO PUMPED FOR THIS GOD DAMN BOOK. I HAVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG.
House of Furies by Madeleine Roux – [May 30] – This incorporates photos and is about a girl who’s a maid at some fancy house in England and the guy who owns the place is doing some Messed Up Shit apparently. Gimme.
The Merciless III: Origins of Evil by Danielle Vega – [June 27] – Should this series have been a standalone? Probably. Do I care? ABSOLUTELY NOT. I am so trash for The Merciless.
A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi – [March 28] – This is the companion novel to The Star-Touched Queen. I wasn’t the biggest fan of that book, but I loved the mythology and writing. Another thing I loved about that book was the character of Gauri and that’s who this book focuses on!
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco – [March 7] – The moment I saw the cover I was like “yes thank you”. It sounds so interesting too and is all about a girl who is a necromancer.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber – [Jan 31] – I was lucky enough to read this already and let me tell you the hype is real. It’s so magical and enchanting. I got so caught up in it. I can’t wait for everyone to be able to read this!!
The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan – [May 2] – I NEED THIS BOOK LIKE AIR!!!!! THE HIDDEN ORACLE WAS EASILY IN MY TOP 5 FAVE BOOKS THAT I READ THIS YEAR!
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab – [Feb 21] – THE LAST BOOK IN THE SHADES OF MAGIC SERIES AND I AM NOT READY!!!!!!!! I NEED MY CHILDREN TO BE OKAY!!!!!!!
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor – [March 28] – I don’t even know how to explain this?? BUT LAINI TAYLOR’S WRITING STYLE IS EVERYTHING.
Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda – [ **This has been pushed back to 2018. Boo.**] – This is set in space and I read “rag tag rescue team” and that was all I needed to know. I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
Dream Fall by Amy Plum – [March 28] – The moment I read the blurb all I could think of was Nightmare on Elm Street and I was instantly sold. The MC has insomnia and decides to take part in a new experiment and it fucks up everyone’s dreams and they get trapped in their dreamworlds.
Empress of a Thousand Skies – [Feb 7] – This sounds way too complicated to explain so I’m going to steal something from the GR blurb “a saga of vengeance, warfare, and the true meaning of legacy”. Just go read the summary on GR because it sounds amazing.
