Top Ten Monday – Most Anticipated Books of the Second Half of 2017

So, I’m skipping this week’s Broke and the Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday since Eden and Jenn have both pretty much covered summer reads and I also never really read books based on seasons… SO! On to the next week’s prompt, most anticipated books, which let me tell you, I am so excited for 2017, it’s been a great release year already and I can’t wait for the second half.

Check out The Broke and the Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday master post here!


10. One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake – September 19

I’m going to give Blake a second chance and see how One Dark Throne goes. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Three Dark Crowns but I didn’t hate it either.


9. The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano – October 24

Princesses… Curses… a King Midas complex. I’m intrigued by the new duology coming out by DeStefano and it’s definitely on my most anticipated TBR.


8. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Illustrated Edition – October 3

On to my 4th copy of the Harry Potter series. I mean… the illustrated editions are just so beautiful.


7. The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo – September 26

I’m not a fan of short stories/novellas but I trust Bardugo so much, let’s see how this goes.

6. The Empress by S.J. Kincaid – October 31

While I’m not 100% sure about this book since The Diabolic was originally marketed as a standalone, I did really love that book. So I will definitely be giving The Empress a chance.


5. Renegades by Marissa Meyer – November 7

I’m excited to see what this new series by Marissa Meyer is going to bring. I absolutely loved Cinder and I can’t wait to see what else Meyer has to offer.


4. Warcross by Marie Lu – September 12

Finally, a new series by Lu. She’s a fantastic author and the synopsis for this series sounds fascinating.


3. Now I Rise by Kiersten White – June 27

I can’t wait to see what Lada is up to in the second book of the And I Darken series.


2. Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab – June 13

Still anxiously waiting for this book. I can’t wait to continue Schwab’s YA Monsters of Varity series.


1. Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas – Septmeber 5

Of course a Maas book is my number one most anticipated. I just can’t get enough, bring on Chaol’s story!

Are there any books coming out in the second half of 2017 that you think I should keep an eye out for? What is your most anticipated release?
