Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Books for Second Half of 2017

This week's Top Ten post is all about the books we are looking forward to reading, but it's specifically limited to publication dates for the second half of the year. How is already the second half of the year?! Here are the books that have caught my eye: 

YA Fiction:



1.  The Secret History of Us by Jessi Kirby - I love Kirby's books, so I am excited to check out this one even if it seems a bit darker than her usual novels.

2.  Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore - A new Cashore novel? Yes, please! 


3.  That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston - I love the synopsis of this book and the gorgeous cover.


4.  The Breathless by Tara Goedjen - This seems like the perfect Halloween read, right?


5.  The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand - I adore Cynthia Hand and I'm sure this one won't disappoint. She is one of my favorite YA authors and I love that it's a retelling of A Christmas Carol. Such a good idea! 





Adult Fiction:



1.  The Last Tudor by Philippa Gregory - I am sort of over the Tudors, but I am a huge fan of Gregory, so I will definitely want to get my hands on a copy.

2.  The Daughters of Ireland by Santa Montefiore - I loved the first book in this series, The Girl in the Castle, and can't wait to revisit the characters and the gorgeous setting.


3.  The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman - A prequel to Practical Magic!


4.  The Wildling Sisters by Eve Chase - I thought Chase's Black Rabbit Hall was very atmospheric, so I am excited to check this one out. 


5.  Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave - I read the first few chapters of this book and it seems really great and filled with many secrets. Have any of you read Dave's Eight Hundred Grapes? I heard it was good!

  1. Great list! I can't believe we're almost halfway through the year.

    I have the Jessi Kirby book on my list and Daughters of Ireland too. I read Eight Hundred Grapes with my book group. I don't remember what happened in the book but I do remember we had fun at our book discussion (at a winery--we did a wine tasting first). :)
