Most Anticipated Releases of 2017 (January-June)

There are so many incredible books coming out in the first half of 2017. I have been scouring lists on Goodreads for a long time and there are too many books to count that are begging to be bought. I can already hear my credit card crying in the distance for all the money that’s about to be spent. And the people around me asking if I really needed to buy all those books. Yes. The answer is yes.

The main reason this post is coming out so late is the fact that I had to narrow this list down to 10 books. Do you have any idea how difficult that was? This post coming out only 8 days into the year is a miracle.

But I got there, and here it is. My list, sorted by release date, of my most anticipated releases for the first half of 2017! Let me know in the comments below what you’re looking forward to this year. Or your opinions, if you’ve been lucky enough to receive an ARC.

Most Anticipated Releases of 2016 (July-December)

There are many good books coming out in the last half of 2016. I spent so long trying to figure out which ones I want most a.k.a which ones I’m going to hint to my boyfriend would make an excellent ‘just because’ kind of gift because books are expensive and I can’t buy them all. I mean I could, but I shouldn’t. After all, isn’t that what significant others are for anyway? (Phil, if you see this, I’m totally kidding)

Here’s my list, sorted by release date, of most anticipated releases for the second half of 2016! Let me know in the comments below what you’re looking forward to or what you think of them if you’ve been lucky enough to receive an ARC.
