The abundance of new books due for release in 2017 is disturbing because my TBR is already
killing me slightly threatening. Does everyone else have the same problem with piles of must-read books?
Kind as I am, I thought we’d play dare with these To-Be-Read book stacks. So here is a list of the do-not-miss 2017 books. Of course, because you are always obedient just before Christmas while Santa
creepily stalks is watching, you are going to pre-order them today to ensure they are available to read on release day. Unless you are ordering real books that have to be shipped. But then you still win because yay! book post is the best.
Definitions of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor

Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Caraval has encountered a huge following already. The hype proclaiming great things. I hope that I won’t be disappointed.

Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia
I love thrillers and this looks like it’s going to be very good. And scary.
Full of twists and turns, Everything You Want Me to Be reconstructs a year in the life of a dangerously mesmerizing young woman, during which a small town’s darkest secrets come to the forefront…and she inches closer and closer to her death. – Goodreads.com
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
If I haven’t force-fed you Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy you are exceptionally unlucky. Go to jail immediately and do not pass go. My desperate attempt to share the books that grace the top of my all-time favourites has reached you. Come back when you’ve flailed sufficiently.
It is no wonder Strange the Dreamer is on my list, and I have been waiting ever so impatiently for its release! Although to be honest I can’t make head or tail of the abstract! What does it mean? But anyway it’s Laini Taylor and I trust her. I think.
The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around— and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance to lose his dream forever. – Goodreads.com

Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell. – Goodreads.com
Lost Girls by Merrie Destefano
Apparently I am a sucker for thrillers.
Yesterday, Rachel went to sleep listening to Taylor Swift, curled up in her grammy’s quilt, worrying about geometry. Today, she woke up in a ditch, bloodied, bruised, and missing a year of her life. – Goodreads.com
Wait for Me by Caroline Leech
Totally fascinated by World War II, I tend to gravitate to these books and then spend the time alternating between horror and tears. I don’t remember ever reading one set in Scotland (the land of my ancestors) so here goes. I’m all in.
It’s 1945, and Lorna Anderson’s life on her father’s farm in Scotland consists of endless chores and rationing, knitting Red Cross scarves, and praying for an Allied victory. So when Paul Vogel, a German prisoner of war, is assigned as the new farmhand, Lorna is appalled. How can she possibly work alongside the enemy when her own brothers are risking their lives for their country? – Goodreads.com
You Don’t Know My Name by Kristen Orlando

Trained in mortal combat and weaponry her entire life, Reagan is expected to follow in her parents’ footsteps and join the ranks of the most powerful top-secret agency in the world, the Black Angels. Falling in love with the boy next door was never part of the plan. – Goodreads.com

A thriller. Again. Need I say more?
