posted by soe 3:00 am

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from The Broke and the Bookish asks about the Top Ten Books We’re Looking Forward to for the First Half of 2017:

(Natalie Lloyd and Jasper Fforde both purportedly have books being published in 2017, so obviously if their novels come out, they’ll jump high up on my list. Pending that…)

  1. Becky Albertalli’s The Upside of Unrequited
  2. Deanna Raybourn’s A Perilous Undertaking (2nd in the Veronica Speedwell series)
  3. Adam Silvera’s History Is All You Left Me
  4. Steve Sheinkin’s Undefeated: Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team
  5. Jennifer Chambliss Bertman’s The Unbreakable Code (follow-up to Book Scavenger)
  6. Benjamin Alire Sáenz’s The Inexplicable Logic of My Life
  7. Roxane Gay’s Difficult Women
  8. Ashley Poston’s Geekerella
  9. Nina LaCour’s We Are Okay
  10. Elizabeth Wein’s The Pearl Thief (prequel to Code Name Verity)

How about you? Any upcoming titles you’re particularly looking forward to?
