Which new books are you excited about?

There are going to be some great bookscoming out in 2017! Which ones are you excited about?

Goodreads has a list of the most anticipated YA Novels of 2017 and here are the top 5: 

"Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places." Sarah J. Mass

This is the second book of The Dark Artifices series and is the sequel to Clare's Lady Midnight.

"Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. She thought she’d be at peace. But she is anything but calm. Torn between her desire for her parabatai Julian and her desire to protect him from the brutal consequences of parabatai relationships, she has begun dating his brother, Mark. But Mark has spent the past five years trapped in Faerie; can he ever truly be a Shadowhunter again?" Cassandra Clare

Following the success of Roth's Divergent series, Carve the Mark is a different kind of story.

"On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not—their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?" Carve the Mark

Red Queen was a huge hit!! Everyone wanted to read it and no one could put it down. We think King's Cage, the third book in the series, is going to be just as popular. 

"Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother's web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner." King's Cage

This is the second book in the triology and it is getting major buzz.

"When an explosion destroys his ship, the world believes Prince Merik, Windwitch, is dead. Scarred yet alive, Merik is determined to prove his sister’s treachery. Upon reaching the royal capital, crowded with refugees, he haunts the streets, fighting for the weak—which leads to whispers of a disfigured demigod, the Fury, who brings justice to the oppressed." Windwitch

Which book are you the most excited about?


  1. Is carve the mark as good as divergent?

    1. It's been getting a lot of buzz! It's not dystopic like Divergent was; it's science fiction and is set on alien planets. One of our librarians read it said that it wasn't as good as Divergent, but it was still enjoyable :)
