Book List

Most Anticipated 2017 Book Releases

Are you guys ready for the greatest list I’ve ever compiled on my blog?!

I talked to some of my favorite authors over the past few days and got them to spill the beans on their upcoming releases for this year!!!

So, open up your Goodreads or pull out a notebook because your TBR pile is going to double!

Mine just about has. 😉

Here’s how this works, I have the lists separated by genres and then organized alphabetically by the authors’ last names. You can click on an author’s picture and it will send you straight to their site so you can browse their other books and learn all about them. If you click on the link that is connected to the title, it will take you to Goodreads so you can read more about the book and add it to your shelves!

Note: Some release dates are subject to change or are yet to be determined–these aren’t all definite as some releases are months away.

  2. Oh man… I was on the verge of posting mine (I had to limit to the first half of 2017 so I can actually get the thing posted!) but now I feel like I need to go and add even more! Can’t wait for Tamara’s! I LOVED the Age of Faith series. And it’s been a while since I read them, so maybe I’ll have to read them all again to get ready for The Vexed…

    Also very much looking forward to a mid-year release from Melissa Tagg – Bear and Reagan’s story. Plus Nicole Deese has her third Love in Lennox novel coming around August.

    So much to look forward to!

  4. Excellent list! Thanks for posting! I need a calendar. Sarah Ladd has a new book coming out and Jody Hedlund has several this year. And Jocelyn Green just released one. Another fantastic book reading year! Yay us!


    1. Thank you!!! I know, same here! And it will have to be a calendar specifically for book releases since I won’t have any extra room to put anything else on there. 😉 How exciting! There are just so many awesome upcoming releases, it’s almost impossible to keep up. Thanks for stopping by!
