This week’s TTT, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, is all about our most anticipated books being released in the rest of 2017. Here are mine:
Our Dark Duet by V.E. Schwab
I really liked This Savage Song, so I’m looking forward to this sequel, which comes out in June. I am hoping for more of the creepy monsters and Kate beating people up.
Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy, edited by Ameriie
An anthology of short stories by YA authors and booktubers (I think), this sounds pretty cool.
Mr Either/Or by Aaron Poochigian
This is a bit of a cheat as I’ve already read this delightfully bonkers verse novel about a secret agent pursuing a mysterious ancient Chinese relic. It comes out in October and I hope it sells a bazillion copies.
Things a Bright Girl Can Do by Sally Nicholls
YA about suffragettes? Yes please.
A Jigsaw of Fire and Stars by Yaba Badoe
I have an e-ARC of this and am so excited to read it. Apparently it moves from people trafficking to African folklore, following a girl who was the only survivor of an attempt by refugees to make it across the ocean. It sounds incredible.
Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward
I really enjoyed Ward’s Salvage the Bones, and I’m eager to read this, which is described as “a searing, urgent read for anyone who thinks the shadows of slavery and Jim Crow laws have passed.”
Indigo by about a million authors
Somehow, this seems to have been written by a whole handful of different authors, and is, I think, a kind of mystery-thriller-superhero type thing. It sounds cool and Seanan Maguire is one of the authors, which excites me.
Godblind by Anna Stephens
I have an e-ARC of this and it sounds cool. It’s a grown-up fantasy and the plot sounds really complicated and weird. Woohoo.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
I really liked Ng’s Everything You Never Told Me, so I’ve got high hopes for this, described as “the intertwined stories of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the mother and daughter who upend their lives.”
City of Spies by Sorayya Khan
This is set in 1970s Pakistan, focusing on the personal traumas of an eleven year old girl, set against a backdrop of political upheaval. This ticks several of my “must read” boxes so I want it.
What are you anticipating for the rest of the year?
