Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017

As always, Top Ten Tuesday meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: “Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017” In no particular order: 

1.Warcross by Marie Lu

You all remember her Legend trilogy. And Young Elites trilogy and both were just stunning. Warcross makes me think of something medieval except that it clearly isn’t…
Expected publication: September 12th 2017 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

2. La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman

Are you excited or what? I just want to scream of happiness… Can’t wait for this to be released. Although I’m kind of worried that it won’t feature Will and he was my favorite character in His Dark Materials.
Expected publication: October 19th 2017 by David Fickling Books

3. Iron Gold by Pierce Brown

Red Rising novel? Hmmm hmm. Covers are so pretty, right?
Expected publication: January 16th 2018 by Del Rey (I know…technically not on second half of this year…)

4. Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

5. The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter
Slaughter has a quite dark style. Which I like. Looking forward to her new series.
Expected publication: August 22nd 2017 by William Morrow

6. I Know a Secret (Rizzoli & Isles # 12) by Tess Gerritsen

I love these two women.  Gerritsen never lets you down.
Expected publication: August 22nd 2017 by Ballantine Books

7. Beren and Lúthien by J.R.R. Tolkien & Christopher Tolkien

Kullervo was pretty short so I have higher hopes for this one. And Lee´s illustrations must be wonderful…
Expected publication: June 1st 2017 by HarperCollins

8. Seven Stones to Stand or Fall by Diana Gabaldon

Who missed Outlander? I know I did. Even if this will be a collection of Outlander short stories, I am still looking forward to reading them.
Expected publication: June 27th 2017 by Doubleday Canada

9. Renegades by Marissa Meyer

I wasn’t always a fan of Meyer’s books but I think Lunar Chronicles were just brillaint so I’m curious about this new book.
Expected publication: November 7th 2017 by Feiwel & Friends

10. The Winds of Winter by George R. R. Martin

I mean…probably not happening this year but maybe next?

Happy TTT!
What books are you looking forward to?

  1. I didn’t know that Karin had a new series. I have only read one of her books in the Trent Series, Kept Woman. This sounds great and I love the fact that its a new series so I don’t have to worry about previous books. Thanks for sharing. Off to add it to my TBR now.

  2. I love that there is no description for Tower of Dawn! It doesn’t really need a reason right ;) Warcross is on my list as well. I love Marie Lu! George RR Martin needs to hurry it up. I’m secretly hoping that he releases it as a surprise before the new season hits HBO. I’d like to read before I watch but at this point it may be a really long wait if I do that.

    Here’s my TTT.

    1. I know right! :D Oh I’m glad someone got why there is no description. Warcross seems really interesting. Martin…I don’t know what he is doing. Procrastinating?

  3. I can’t wait for Pullman’s new novel too! The BBC are also doing a TV adaptation of His Dark Materials which will probably be out next year in case you hadn’t heard. :)

    1. No I haven’t heard!! That’s awesome! Although it’s always a risk when they decide to do a tv series and basically the casting goes all wrong. Hopefully, it won’t turn out like the movie did at least.

  4. Can’t wait for Renegades either! Tower of the Dawn is on my list too, I love Chaol. Winds of Winter is long off I think. The expected publication date has been removed from all sites. I’m not sure when it’s going to happen.

    1. I don’t like Chaol very much but I’m still excited about Tower of the Dawn haha. Yeah, I guess you’re right. I was just hoping that Martin will see my blog post and generally pay attention to us fans and hurry up and finish it.

      1. I’m a fan of any character who holds the rank of Captain it seems. And his personality is more what I go for in real life too. I guess we can hope with Winds of Winter that it will be out soon. I’m hoping for next year, of course I still haven’t read the books, just watch the show.

  5. I have Book of Dust 1 on advance order. I haven’t been reading the news and didn’t realise it had been given a title.
    I’ll probably go for the Tolkien too. As for The Winds of Winter, I think you must be an optimist – or do you really know something we don’t?

    1. I had no idea that the first book is called La Belle Sauvage before I started looking into it when writing this blog post. I think that the French title is a bit odd. Haha, I suppose I’m an optimist
