This week we are talking about 2017 releases we missed


bekka’s picks

1. The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
I didn’t really read the synopsis before I requested this ARC, and when I learned it was about necromancy, my interest kind of waned. But I recently learned that I don’t actually dislike necromancer stories, and since this cover and the whole book design, really, is so beautiful, I now need to read it. Plus the sequel is somehow even more beautiful.

2. Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton
I really enjoyed the first book when I read it around its release. And for no reason at all, I just neglected the sequel. The third book comes out in 2018 and I plan to marathon the two.

3. The Valiant by Lesley Livingston
Another I wasn’t super interested in until I read something else similar. But now I am very into female gladiators and I can’t wait to read this story.

4. Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza
I’m really interested in this, but honestly I have to be in a specific mood to read science fiction, and it just hasn’t happened yet.

5. Geekerella by Ashley Poston
I love the growing number of fandom books that have been coming out lately. Eliza and Her Monsters and Queens of Geek both captured my heart and I don’t think this one will be any different.

6. Windwitch by Susan Dennard
I’m just really bad at series. I also wasn’t reading a lot when this book came out because Rosie was just a week old. But I will get to this soon, I will.

7. Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios
This is about an abusive relationship and that’s a very heavy topic. I can only read so many heartbreaking and painful books before I get overloaded. But I did read some of it and it’s really, really well written so far.

8. Dear Martin by Nic Stone
So, as I said, I can only read so many painful books. And I can only handle so much real-world evil at a time. This is high priority for me, though, for a lot of reasons.

9. Fireblood by Elly Blake
So, I am bad at series. But also I thought this was going in be bad, and introduce a love triangle and all that. But then Morgan said it’s actually a really good sequel, so I am more motivated to read it. Definitely before Nightblood comes out.

10. Wonder Woman: Warbinger by Leigh Bardugo
The only reason I actually own this is because it’s Leigh Bardugo. I’m just not a super hero book person. I love superhero movies, but reading the books is hard. But obviously I want to read this because Leigh.


alexia’s picks

1. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. Given how much I LOVED Simon, I’m baffled that I haven’t read this one yet. I started it about six months ago, but wasn’t really in the mood so I put it down.

2. Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer. This book looks like it’s gonna kill me, so I think it’s a good plan not to read it until I’m in a better state, mentally.

3. Dress Codes for Small Towns by Courtney C. Stevens. One of my auto-read authors. I cannot wait to read this one. Especially when it started out so well, but I wasn’t in the mood to read for various reasons.

4. Beautiful Broken Girls by Kim Savage. I probably should have read this one by now, so ooops? I haven’t heard a lot of buzz about this book, which is strange and only makes me really excited to read it.

5. The Art of Starving by Sam J. Miller. Um a gay guy with anorexia? Yes please. Holy crap, I need to read this book ASAP.

6. Fireblood by Elly Blake. Frostblood was one of my favorite books last year, so I am super excited to continue the series with Fireblood and then eventually Nightblood.

7. Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner. I started this book over the summer and by 20% of the way through, I had already sobbed like a starving baby. So I stopped reading it with the full intention of finishing it soon. Well, that didn’t happen.

8. How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake. I started this one too and made it about 20% before life got in the way and I had to put down this book to deal with life stuff. I am very excited to return to this book very soon.

9. When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. Oh my goodness, I have no excuse for not reading this one yet, except for the fact that I don’t usually reach for fluffy books. I want to try to read more fluffy books this year.

10. This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis. Ughhhh, I cannot believe I didn’t finish this book yet. After the sheer brilliance of A Madness So Discreet & The Female of the Species, I was so stoked to have this book on my Kindle. And yet, I still haven’t read it. I am excited to rectify that this year.
