In some ways I can’t believe that 2017 is almost here, and that so many of my highly anticipated reads already have a COVER. Since my birthday is in January and I’m usually already looking toward 2017 reads to put on my wish list, I thought I’d take the opportunity to showcase some of the 2017 reads I’m most excited for that already have covers:
Wayfarer by Alex Bracken | There’s no doubt Passenger was one of the most talked about reads for 2016, and while I had mixed feelings about it (so mixed I never got around to writing a review for it) I am pretty excited to pick up the sequel (I already have it pre-ordered…)
Flower by Elizabeth Craft and Shea Olsen | Though the cover is funky, I have to admit that the pre-teen inside of me gets hooked every time there’s a normal-girl-dates-famous-person plotline (such as in This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith).
Roseblood by A.G. Howard | You had me at “Phantom at the Opera.”
Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas | This one has been on my Goodreads TBR shelf for AGES. I feel like everyone has been waiting for this one since at least 2015, and now it finally has a cover! I’m also a huge sucker for people finding out they’re royalty, so this is pretty high up on my anticipation list.
Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett | I’ve seen this one floating around on a LOT of bloggers’ radars. Coastal California town and potentially a hate to love romance? Yes please.
Once and For All by Sarah Dessen | I will read anything Sarah Dessen writes, and I love movies/shows surrounding wedding planning, so I’m sure I’ll love it in a book! (Although is it just me or are there some weird names in this book?)
Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios | Demetrios is skilled at writing very emotionally powerful narratives, and I’m interested to read another one set in rural California that sounds like it deals with the important topic of domestic abuse.
The Arsonist by Stephanie Oakes | Another heavy contemporary set in California, Oakes impressed me with The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly. This mystery combines current political issues with important historical events of the past.
