2017 Pre-Orders Part 1
There are so many amazing books being released this year that it was extremely difficult to narrow it down to the following books. In the end, I went with the books I’ve already pre-ordered, as that obviously proves how excited I am for them.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas (2nd May)
Over on Litsy (best book app ever, BTW), so many people have recommended this series to me. A friend sent me ACOTAR and ACOMAF as part of a book exchange, but I’ve held off reading them until this month so that I wouldn’t have to wait long for the release of ACOWAR! I feel like I’m part of this fandom already but I’m sure to be super obsessed before long.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo (31st August)
A coming-of-age story about Wonder Woman written by the super talented Leigh Bardugo? This is something I never knew I wanted but now I’M SUPER EXCITED FOR IT! Only four months to go…
Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King (26th September)
This is a father/son collaboration exploring what might happen if women disappeared from the world. The premise sounds amazing and, tbh, anything by Stephen King is something I want to read. The Shining and The Stand are still two of my all-time favourite books so I hope this lives up to my very high expectations.
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater (10th October)
Maggie Stiefvater wrote one of my favourite series ever (the Raven Cycle), which means I’m so excited for the release of this standalone YA novel. I love Maggie’s writing style and pretty much devoured every book she’s written so she’s an auto-buy author for me. Maggie has said the book is full of miracles and owls – who wouldn’t want to read about that?! With the release of this book, we are also one step closer to getting our hands on the Ronan trilogy (squee!).
The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman (19th October)
As soon as I heard that Philip Pullman was writing a new book set in the world of His Dark Materials, I pre-ordered it straight away. His Dark Materials is one of my favourite trilogies so this was a must-buy for me. It’s set ten years before Northern Lights and even features Lyra (*squeals with excitement*).
