Top Ten Tuesday

Posted 13 December, 2016 by Nikki in General / 10 Comments

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is all about the books upcoming in the first half of 2017. While I’m not always on the ball about this stuff, there are a surprising number of books I’m actually aware of. Here goes…

Cover of City of Miracles by Robert Jackson Bennett Cover of Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor Cover of Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab Cover of Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire Cover of Thick as Thieves by Megan Whalen Turner

  1. City of Miracles, by Robert Jackson Bennett. This is a sequel to City of Stairs and City of Blades and I need it, I need it now.
  2. Strange the Dreamer, by Laini Taylor. I don’t need to know much about this. I love Laini Taylor’s prose just to begin with!
  3. Our Dark Duet, by Victoria Schwab. I loved This Savage Song, sooo I’m pretty confident I’m gonna be happy about this one.
  4. Down Among the Sticks and Bones, by Seanan McGuire. This is a companion/prequel to Every Heart A Doorway, and I’m definitely excited to see what it does with the characters.
  5. Thick As Thieves, by Megan Whalen Turner. I was so excited when I spotted this! I recently reread the other books, too, so I’m aaaall ready for this one.
  6. Norse Mythology, by Neil Gaiman. Between Gaiman’s skill as a writer and my interest in Norse mythology, this book is bound to be awesome.
  7. Frogkisser, by Garth Nix. Only just found out about this one, but it’s Garth Nix — I’ll read it eventually.
  8. A Conjuring of Light, by V.E. Schwab. Okay, I actually need to read the second book first, but still…
  9. The Upside of Unrequited, by Becky Albertalli. I enjoyed Albertalli’s other book, so this one should be fun.
  10. Traitor to the Throne, by Alwyn Hamilton. The first book didn’t totally knock my socks off the way it did for some people, but it was still a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes.

Anything else I should have thought of?

  1. I’m never aware of new books coming out other than those in series I’m reading ie Mercy Thompson, so I get most of my new release info by checking out other blogs! I rarely buy a new release unless it comes out in paperback straight away. I never buy hardbacks-too expensive and too much shelf space!

    • I’ve always found that in the past, and now I tend to find out via other people adding them on Goodreads or seeing lists about anticipated books for the next year. I always used to like ’em sneaking up on me — suddenly, an awesome new book!

  2. I thought I’d struggle to find 10, but this year I seem to have lots to look forward to! I reaaaaaaally must get round to Robert J Bennett.

    • I usually struggle, but I got the first 8 easily without even needing to think. Blogging does seem to be ensuring I know what’s coming up better than I used to.
