Highly Anticipacted Books for the First Half of 2017

With the calendar switching over to 2017 in just a couple of days, it is time once again for a look at my most highly anticipated upcoming releases. I always love hearing what people are dying to get their hands on, so let me know in the comments which books you need ASAP.

 Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder:
The recent additions to The Poison Study series have all been fantastic. I'm sure this one will be too. (Series featured here and here.)

Silver Stars by Michael Grant:
This is the sequel to the fabulous WWII alternate history, Front Lines. And guess what? I already read it. I think fans of the first book will be quite happy with this one. (Series featured here.)

Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken:
You know I'm always up for a good time travel novel, and Passenger had such a horrible cliffhanger! We all need to know what happens. (Series featured here.)

Caraval of Stephanie Garber:
This debut novel sounds so mysterious, and I'm always up for a good circus setting.

By Your Side by Kasie West:
We are huge Kasie West fans at Intellectual Recreation. For me, the synopsis causes flashbacks to Help! I'm a Prisoner in the Library! Did anyone else read that book as a kid? (Kasie West's other books here, here, here, here, here, and here.)

The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro:
I loved the first book in this series about the great-great grandchildren of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. I'm so excited for the sequel. (Series featured here.)

The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig:
This is another time travel book and another sequel. I just love the whole ship and hand-drawn map aspect of time travel in Heidi Heilig's series. (Series featured here.)

Gilded Cage by Vic James:
I'm so intrigued by this start of a new series set in an alternate England with magic and a very strict class structure.

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor:
I just loved The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy. I'm excited to see what Ms. Taylor has in store for us now.

Night Witches by Kathryn Lasky:
I'm excited for this book because I've long thought that the Russian Night Witches of World War II would make for an excellent YA novel.

Goodbye Days by Jeff Zenter:
Jeff Zenter's debut, The Serpent King, was such an incredible first book. I'm excited to see where he takes us next.

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer:
I heard that this contemporary about a grieving daughter is set in Baltimore. And that detail, along with the stunning cover, is enough for me.

The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan:
I loved the first book in The Trials of Apollo series. Rick Riordan is the master.

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han:
More Lara Jean. Yes, please. (Series featured here and here.)

The Crown's Fate by Evelyn Skye:
The first book in this series was so much fun and hit a bunch of my sweet spots.

The Next Together by Lauren James:
This book was published in the UK a couple of years ago, and we are finally going to get to read it in the US come June.

Now I Rise by Kiersten White:
And I Darken was so incredible. Words fail me. I need the sequel. (Series featured here.)
