My Books of 2017

Every year there are some books I look forward to coming out, mainly the latest in a series I’ve been reading, or I see something in a bookshop or online and think I must read that. Every year I get around to reading a couple of them, mainly because I’ve forgotten about something I’ve read about and thought oh I must pick that up.

This year with this blog I’ve decided to create a list of the books I’m looking forward to, mainly for me to have something to look back on when I’m thinking about what to read next. Below are some of the books due to be published this year (some maybe paperback versions), some are debuts, some are the latest in a series I’ve been reading and others are stand alone books from already established authors. I’ll keep it updated as more books are announced. I can’t promise I’ll read them all but any I do I’ll review.

There’s also a few literary milestones / anniversaries this year that are inspiring me to re-read somethings I’ve read before.

I’ve linked to the book’s Goodreads page – Leave me a comment and let me know if any of them interest you, or what else is due out this year that excites you.

    Great list! I’m particularly looking forward to reading Little Deaths and The Dry – both sound like excellent reads. Also, No One Is Coming To Save Us… I might just have to add it to my TBR.
