Most Anticipated Summer 2017 Releases

File_001 (19)

It’s May, which means spring should start coming to a close, and summer is almost upon us (thank God, because school and track are simultaneously killing me. Also, Bookcon).

I was trying to choose between posting a Let’s Chat or this today, and lo and behold, Twitter decided that they wanted to see my most anticipated summer releases for 2017! Hold on tight, there are a lot of them. Like, a lot.

File_000 (95)

So, much like I did for spring, I’m decided to compile a list of my most anticipated summer releases of 2017! Again, there’s a variety of genres, so I’m sure you’ll find something you like!

The Party

The Party

(June 6)

This sounds like an awesome cross between Moriarty’s Big Little Lies and Walker’s All Is Not Forgotten (both books which I loved). AND I ALSO WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS?

*

The Owl Always Hunts At Night

the owl always hunts at night

(June 6)

Last year, I read the first book in the series, I’m Travelling Alone, and loved it! I actually got an e-ARC of this one through the Penguin First to Read program, so I’m super excited to dive into this one!

*

And Then There Were Four

and then there were four

(June 6)

Um, teenagers think their parents are trying to kill them??? GIMME!

*

The Possible 

the possible

(June 6)

I haven’t yet read this author’s other novel, The Leaving, which is on my TBR, but this one sounds extremely interesting, especially since it seems to be combining mystery and PNR elements, which seems to be becoming a trend these days.

*

Here Lies Daniel Tate

here lies daniel tate

(June 6)

I really love this trend in thrillers where people decide to con their way into families where one of the children went missing. I haven’t seen this trend too much in YA except for Cylin Busby’s The Stranger Game – which I loved – so I’m hoping this one’s good!

*

He Said/She Said

he said she said

(June 6)

The summary is super vague, which I’m happy about, because it really intrigues me. I saw this one via Crime By the Book on Instagram, and I’ve been super interested in it ever since. I actually got a physical ARC of this (my first one!!!), so I’m hoping to dig into this one this month!

*

The Weight of Lies

the weight of lies

(June 6)

Chealsea over at The Suspense is Thrilling Me’s review made me want to pick this one up, so a shout-out to her! This one sounds totally awesome.

*

Dividing Eden

dividing eden

(June 6)

It seems to me that this will be about twins pitting against each other for one throne, so yes please. Not to mention how beautiful the cover is. Haven’t had too much luck with Charbonneau’s books before, but maybe this one will work out?

*

The Sandcastle Empire

the sandcastle empire

(June 6)

Gimme that deadly island! Not to mention that this one sounds like an extremely unique dystopian/sci-fi novel, so I’m intrigued. Also, I’m clinging to the fact that there wasn’t a mention of romance in the synopsis.

(Also, there are way too many books publishing June 6. Way too many.)

*

Want

want cindy pon

(June 13)

Yeah, a dystopian/sci-fi novel where the poor are trying to take down the rich! Not to mention that the cover is stunning. Praying that this book has heist-y type things going on. I have an e-ARC of this one, and, yep, I’m hoping to read this one this month!

*

Our Dark Duet

our dark duet

(June 13)

Well, duh.

*

Bad Romance

bad romance

(June 13)

I’m really happy to see that there are more YA books being published that talk about abusive relationships because it’s so extremely important and not talked about enough. I’m super excited to read this one, and I’ve heard great things about Demetrios’s books, so I’m pumped.

*

The Marsh King’s Daughter

the marsh king's daughter

(June 13)

Okay, so this seems like a badass cat-and-mouse chase between the main character and her father, who’s the Marsh King, if I’m getting it right. Because, if so, I want this one in my hands, like, right now.

*

The Lucky Ones

The Lucky Ones

(June 15)

I’ve LOVED pretty much all of Mark Edwards’ books, and I’m sure this one will be no exception. The man’s a genius, I tell you.

*

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

gentleman's guide to vice and virtue

(June 20)

It’s a “road” trip book with pirates and gay romance and a manhunt. What is there not to like??? Also, I’ve seen fantastic reviews for this one, and I read the sample and truly adored it, so I know this is going to be a good one.

*

The Breakdown

the breakdown

(June 20)

I recieved an e-ARC of this one via Netgalley (my review will be published next month), but I decided to put this one on the list because I know there are probably some U.S. crime/thriller bloggers out there who haven’t read it yet!

*

Every Last Lie

every last lie

(June 27)

I couldn’t finish The Good Girl last year, and her other two books are still sitting on my TBR…yet, I want this one because it sounds totally awesome. I can’t resist.

Persons Unknown

persons unknown

(July 4)

I read Missing, Presumed last year, and I enjoyed it (even though I found the ending to be disappointing). I didn’t know there was going to be a sequel, so this was a pleasant surprise. One of the highlights of the book were the characters, so I’m glad to see Manon again. I actually got accepted this one via Netgalley, so I’m super excited to read this one!

*

Because You Love to Hate Me

because you love to hate me

(July 11)

First off, I’m a huge fan of some of the Booktubers who provided the prompts. Second, some of my favorite authors are a part of this. And third, it’s all about villains! I love anthologies, so I’m excited.

*

This Is How it Happened

this is how it happend

(July 11)

I really love different formats in books, especially ones that incorporate social media, so this one seems interesting. And I also really like the concept, since this seems to be half-contemporary, half-mystery.

*

The Merciless III: Origins of Evil

The Merciless III

(July 11)

I loved the first two books in this series, and I cannot wait for the third one to come out (even though it’s a prequel and not a sequel, unfortunately)! These books are some of the better YA horror I’ve read for sure.

*

The Inside Dark

The Inside Dark.jpg

(July 11)

I actually stumbled upon this one on Netgalley, and was lucky enough to get approved for an e-ARC. This one sounds really interesting and has a lot of potential, so fingers crossed that it’s as amazing as it sounds!

*

Final Girls

final-girls

(July 18)

Again, I already received an e-ARC of this book forever ago, and absolutely devoured it (my review won’t be posted until July though, unfortunately), so I highly advise you guys to go out and buy this one if you can. It’s not to be missed!

*

The Lying Game

the lying game

(July 25)

I’m meh on Ruth Ware as an author (I’ve given both of her books three stars), but I find her books enjoyable, and the concept of this one sounds interesting, so, I’m going to read it.

*

Little Monsters

little monsters

(July 25)

I read The Darkest Corners by this author last year, and actually enjoyed it, so I’m looking forward to this one! I loved her writing style – Thomas can create atmosphere so well – so I’m pumped to read more of her YA thrillers.

*

First We Were IV

first we were iv

(July 25)

The Creeping, my first Sirowy book and one of my favorite Halloween reads, was really good, so, of course I’m going to read this. I absolutely love creepy secret societies/cults, so this should be good. I also got this one via the publisher as an e-ARC, so I can’t wait to read it!

*

Daughter of the Burning City

Daughter of the Burning City

(July 25)

All I saw was the word “carnival,” and that was really all I needed.

arrow

File_002 (16)

We Now Return to Regular Life

we now return to regular life

(Aug 1)

I’m also a huge fan of mysteries/contemporaries that observe people as they adjust to life back at home after being kidnapped, so this easily went on my list. Plus, it’s LGBTQ+, and that’s makes me super excited.

*

When I Am Through with You

when i am through with you

(Aug 1)

This sounds freaking awesome. A school trip to the mountains that goes terribly wrong and people end up dying? I’m so in.

*

The Wood

the wood

(Aug 1)

Originally, I thought this was a horror novel from the cover and synopsis, but then read the reviews and saw it was actually a fantasy dealing with fae and time travel, so that’s a bit disappointing, but, you know, fae. So, I’ll probably still read it.

*

Are You Sleeping?

Are You Sleeping

(Aug 1)

This one sounds so amazing that I just can’t resist! And I’ve heard good things about this one, so on to the TBR it goes!

*

Yesterday

Yesterday

(Aug 1)

This one just sounds like such an interesting thriller. It reminds me of the concept of Before I Go to Sleep (which I haven’t read), but this one sounds so good, especially because I love me an unreliable narrator.

*

The Hearts We Sold

the hearts we sold

(Aug 8)

So, a girl sells her heart to a demon to escape her horrible life, but gets much more than she bargained for, so she joins a group of other people stuck in the same situation. I’m loving it (and the cover).

*

Emma in the Night

Emma in the Night

(Aug 8)

I NEED ALL THE BOOKS THAT WENDY WALKER HAS EVER WRITTEN PLEASE.

*

The Walls

the walls

(Aug 10)

I haven’t read Baby Doll yet (it’s on the TBR), but this one sounds brilliant. A woman who works on death row getting caught up in an abusive relationship and purposefully setting up her abuser to be killed. Um, can I have it right now?

*

A Stranger in the House

A Stranger in the House

(Aug 15)

I’m a huge fan of books where the main character doesn’t remember what happened because I love guessing whodunnit and it always makes the book so much more fun and suspenseful to read! Though I didn’t love her previous book, The Couple Next Door, I’m hoping this one is better!

*

The Arsonist

the arsonist

(Aug 22)

Two weird teenagers team up to try to solve an old mystery of the murder of a teenage girl. That premise really intrigues me, and the cover is stunning. I still haven’t read The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly yet, but this one sounds terrific.

*

Girl in Snow

girl in snow.jpg

(Aug 22)

This sounds like a really interesting mix between literary fiction and mystery, and, again, major cover love. I’m really digging the fact that we’re seeing everything in three POVs, and think that’ll shed an interesting light on the novel, so I’m excited!

*

All Rights Reserved

all rights reserved

(Aug 29)

Do my eyes deceive me? A dystopian that actually has an original concept that doesn’t mention a romance? Yes please. 

*

Wonder Woman: Warbringer

wonder woman

(Aug 29)

Again, duh.

And that’s my giant list of books I’m excited for that are coming out this summer!

I swear to God, I’m going to just drop dead doing one of these things because it’s so much work, it takes hours, and I feel dead by the end of it.

Anticipated Spring Releases 2017

file_000-24

With spring comes a lot of new releases that make me super excited! I thought it’d be nice to introduce a new feature (because I do this about once a month on my blog at this point) in which I talk about my most anticipated releases for the season!

I actually made a large two-part post for all the 2017 releases, but I ended up deleting both of those posts because I deleted the photos in my gallery, and apparently when you do that, it deletes all the photos on said posts (why did no one tell me this). I was too lazy to redo the entire thing again, so I thought I’d just copy the information, delete both the posts, and recycle them for a much shorter, more organized post. And here it is!

If you want to learn more about the book, just click the title, and it’ll lead you to the Goodreads page! I have a mix of YA and Adult, and I’m pretty sure I have a book for every genre, so, that’s awesome!

(Now I’ll shut up and start talking about the books.)

MARCH

The Bone Witch

bone-witch

(Mar 7)

I haven’t read Chupeco’s other novels, but this one sounds really good. I haven’t read much fantasy in a VERY long time, so I really need to hop back on board. And, again, cover love!

*

The Roanoke Girls

the-roanoke-girls

(Mar 7)

This book wasn’t even on my radar until I joined Netgalley and read the description and was immediately lured in. This author actually wrote YA dystopian books (which, obviously, are sitting unread on my TBR), so it’ll be interesting to see her tackle a totally new genre. Also, I’ve heard this is dark, and it’s about a twisted family, and that makes me so excited.

*

Bleed Through

bleed-through

(Mar 14)

So, this guy has schizophrenia, and his meds give him the magical ability to see murders that happened in the past. I’m so excited for this, especially since I’m getting used to thrillers with a little PNR twist.

*

Hunted

hunted

(Mar 14)

I read her co-written book These Broken Stars (and Amie Kaufman, Queen of Sci-fi, was said co-writer) and loved it, so this should be 100% marvelous. Also, I see that it has fantastic reviews on Goodreads from people I trusted, so, I WANT IT!

*

Nemesis

nemesis-1-200x300

(Mar 21)

More weird sci-fi books, please.

*

Hellworld

hellworld

(Mar 21)

I’ve become a huge fan of YA horror ever since my spooky reads of October, so I’m ready to devour some more!

*

Goodbye Paradise

goodbye-paradise

(Mar 21)

This is a M/M novel dealing with cults written by Sarina Bowen. NOTHING CAN GO WRONG AND I NEED IT NOW.

*

The Cutaway

the-cutaway

(Mar 21)

First off, WHY ARE THERE 3480280 BOOKS RELEASING ON THE SAME DAYS? Second, this puts politics and psychological thrillers together. UM, THOSE ARE MY TWO FAVORITE THINGS??? (Let’s ignore the fact that they called it a perfect mash-up of Gone Girl, Luckiest Girl Alive, and Big Little Lies – we all know it’s going to be like none of those books).

*

Vigilante

vigilante

(Mar 28)

How could I have read this summary and not immediately added it to my wishlist? I haven’t read McGinnis’ The Female of the Species, but I’ve heard fantastic things about it, and this one sounds similar, so excitement!

*

Strange the Dreamer

strange-the-dreamer

(Mar 28)

I’ve been wanting this one since last year, when it was originally supposed to release, and I just want it right now! It sounds so brilliant, and I loved the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, so I’m guessing I’ll love this one as well!

img_2014

APRIL

Ragdoll

ragdoll

(Apr 4)

I heard this was a super dark thriller, and I absolutely love dark thrillers, and this one sounds so amazing! I can’t wait to get this one in my hands!

*

Given to the Sea

given-to-the-sea

(Apr 11)

I read the description and I barely understand it, but it sounds interesting? Does that even make sense?

*

The Upside of Unrequited

theupsideofunrequited

(Apr 11)

It’s Becky Albertalli. That’s literally all I need to know.

*

The Girl From Yesterday

the-girl-from-yesterday

(Apr 17)

This just sounds like an awesome thriller; please give it to me now. Also, this was again compared to Liane Moriarty, Gillian Flynn, and Jessica Knoll. I see what you’re doing, publishers.

*

Meg and Linus

meg-and-linus

(Apr 18)

Cute, gay contemporary is my weakness!

img_2014

MAY

ACOWAR

acowar cover

(May 2)

Well, duh.

*

Dreamfall

dreamfall

(May 2)

It’s a sci-fi horror that sounds like Inception. I will sell my soul for this book.

*

The Scattering

the-scattering

(May 2)

This is actually a sequel to The Outliers! I haven’t yet read that book, but I’m a huge fan of Reconstructing Amelia, so it’ll be interesting reading her YA thrillers.

*

Into the Water

into-the-water

(May 2)

OMG A NEW PAULA HAWKINS! I read The Girl on the Train earlier this year, and though I thought it was just okay (I gave it three stars, I think), I’m really excited to see if this one will live up to the hype of her first novel! The cover is gorgeous, and this one sounds so different from her previous novel, so I’m excited to get it.

*

The One Memory of Flora Banks

img_0005

(May 2)

I’ve been pining for this since I heard about it and thought it had come out way back in January (apparently, that was the U.K. release date ugh) and I read a sample in Buzz Books, and just gimme it noooow.

(Also, May 2 is now declared to be “We Are Trying to Make Mikaela Broke” Day).

*

What Alice Knew

what alice knew.jpg

(May 4)

Missing husbands and suspicious phone calls; what not to love? Also, more jealousy at the UK for already having this!

*

The Lines We Cross

the-lines-we-cross

(May 9)

This is another book that I’m pretty sure is already out in other countries under the name Where Michael Met Mina, and it’s finally coming to the US! At a time where immigration is such a hot-button topic, this sounds like such a good read, especially since we get to see two sides!

*

The Love Interest

the love interest.png

(May 16)

Yes, this is a book about making fun of YA tropes. Yes, the two guys pining for the girl in the love triangle are going to fall in love. Yes, I want this right now.

*

Lord of Shadows

lord-of-shadows

(May 23)

Obvious excitement is obvious. I mean, the cover is ugly, but I really want to know how this strange love shape is going to turn out? Also, this is 704 pages. WHY?

*

One of Us Is Lying

one-of-us-is-lying

(May 30)

No mistaking, this is definitely a thriller twist on The Breakfast Club. It sounds amazing, and I want it, of course. Give me all the 2017 YA thriller/mystery/horror! Also, I’ve never watched The Breakfast Club (#shame).

*

House of Furies

house-of-furies

(May 30)

I own Roux’s Asylum trilogy, but haven’t yet read it, but, again, YA horror. Hopefully, I’ll read it before this releases!

arrow break

And those are my most anticipated releases for the spring! Can I have them all? Can they come just a little bit earlier? Can authors just send free books to me?
