Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Debuts of 2017

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

1.) Frostblood by Elly Blake - Add to Goodreads 
Release Date: January 10, 2017
I am such a sucker for YA fantasies, even ones that sound super tropey and like a ton of other fantasies I have read. Mostly I think I'm interested in this one for the magical system.

2.) Heartstone by Elle Katherine WhiteAdd to Goodreads
Release Date: January 17, 2017
Jane Austen with dragons. That's all the explanation you need, right? That's all the explanation I needed. I mean how amazing does that sound. I really need this book.

3.) Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson - Add to Goodreads 
Release Date: January 24, 2017
I love a good mystery and there is nothing better than a person wrongfully accused attempting to clear their name. Plus this has a diverse MC and what I am hoping will be a true crime kind of vibe.

4.) Caraval by Stephanie Garber - Add to Goodreads 
Release Date: January 31, 2017
I have heard nothing but great things about this book, which is good because it sounds fantastic. I've been waiting to read it until release date.

5.) Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones - Add to Goodreads
Release Date: February 7, 2017
I cannot wait to read this book. I feel like I have talked about it enough, so I don't really need to explain here why I am so excited. Plus I am pretty sure you all are just as excited about this one as I am.

6.) Empress of A Thousand Skies by Rhonda Bellaza - Add to Goodreads
Release Date: February 7, 2017
I am very rarely disappointed by books that have political intrigue and take place in space so obviously I am very excited about this one. I have to get my hands on this book because it sounds like my kind of read.

7.) Gilded Cage by Vic James - Add to Goodreads
Release Date: February 14, 2017
I have heard good things about this book. The reviews say it's a pretty dark YA fantasy and I am all about that. I have an e-ARC of this one from Netgalley and I am pretty excited to read it.

8.) Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller - Add to Goodreads
Release Date: February 14, 2017
I mean obviously I need this book. Young adult fantasy about pirates? Sign me up. Not to mention it is about a female pirate. I am very excited about this book you guys.

9.) The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas - Add to Goodreads
Release Date: February 28, 2017
I like to read a few contemporaries a year and this one definitely sounds like one I would like. It seems complex and diverse and very very topical. I know a lot of people are excited about this one too.

10.) Freya by Matthew Laurence - Add to Goodreads 
Release Date: March 14, 2017
I love books about mythology/mythological figures in modern settings. It always makes for a fun fish out of water story. This one definitely sounds fun too.

11.) Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller - Add to Goodreads 
Release Date: March 21, 2017
I mention this one last week because it sounds right up my alley. Anything compared to Firefly is something that will intrigue me, for sure. Plus as previously stated, I'm a sucker for political intrigue in space.

12.) Bloodrose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves - Add to Goodreads
Release Date: March 28, 2017
It should come as no surprise that this made my list what with my penchant for YA fantasies. I'm guessing this one will make it on a number of lists this wee because it is a pretty highly anticipated series. I'm all for fantasy that combines magic and society.

13.) Cold Summer by Gwen Cole - Add to Goodreads 
Release Date: May 2, 2016
I learned about this one recently from someone else's top ten list and I was like "why am I just learning about this now?" This is a total me book. It's historical mystery and time travel set during WWII. I'm into it.

14.) One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus - Add to Goodreads
Release Date: May 30, 2017
If the book is compared to The Breakfast Club then I am interested. Especially if it is a YA mystery with unreliable narrators. Just to be clear, this book is those things and I cannot wait to read it.

15.) Wicked Like Wildfire by Lana Popovic - Add to Goodreads
Release Date: August 15, 2017
This sounds like a really interesting magical realism series. I was really into magical realism last year and I'm pretty sure I will be really into it this year too. Plus, check out that cover. So. Pretty.

There you have it. All the debuts that I am really excited to read for mostly the first half of 2017. What debuts are you excited about? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!
