2017 New Releases

Hey guys! 
Happy Mondaaaaaayy! I know we all hate Mondays because...well...Monday, but I'm hoping to make your Monday a little brighter by giving you my final 2017 releases blog post! These ones are all brand new books or brand new series, from authors we all know and love! I've gotta say, I'm really, really excited for these! A lot of these are from authors that recently finished a series or had another standalone that I really loved, and there's one author in particular that hasn't had a book out in ages and I completely lost my sh*t when I saw a new book on GoodReads! 

I've got a little something for everyone here, I hope! Let me know if I'm missing any down in the comments, or just let me know which ones you're excited for too! If you have NetGalley you might want to go and have a browse because I've noticed a few of the books I've featured in these posts are up and just begging to be read and reviewed! 

As usual, I'll tag all the authors and publishers who have all the information about the books that I don't possess, unfortunately! If you haven't read any of the other books by these authors before...get on it! 

1. Strange The Dreamer Laini Taylor

I STILL need to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, it's on my incredibly long list and I will get there eventually but this sounds SO GOOD! 

"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.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? and if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

In this sweeping and breathtaking new novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Timesbestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, the shadow of the past is as real as the ghosts who haunt the citadel of murdered gods. Fall into a mythical world of dread and wonder, moths and nightmares, love and carnage.

Welcome to Weep."

2. The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

You guys have no idea how excited I am for this book, as soon as I heard about it I was like "NEEEEDD!" I just love the concept and Esta and her power sounds freaking amazing! Magic and a nice jaunt through time sound right up my street! 

"Stop the Magician.
Steal the book.
Save the future.

In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives.

Esta is a talented thief, and she's been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta's training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1901 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.

But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself. And for Esta to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past."

3. Gatlon School for Vigilantes by Marissa Meyer

So sometimes when I really like an authors books, I have a stalk through their GoodReads profile to see what other books they have out or coming out and that's how I found this little gem. It kind of reminds me a little bit of School For Good and Evil but it's obviously different. I do love a good superhero story, and after reading Lunar Chronicles I'm excited to see what Meyer is going to do with it! 

"There are two rival schools in Gatlon City: the respected and exclusive Morris Academy that has turned many an evolved youth into celebrity superheroes, and the Gatlon School for the Gifted, which has a slightly less impressive reputation. Students of Gatlon tend to be relegated to minions, placeholders, or—at best—sidekicks.

Clara has no interest in being a hero, but she does need answers. Her invisible, mischievous pet Thunderbird, Tondra, is dying, and she refuses to let him go without a fight. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lot more happening in Gatlon than just a sickly mythical bird. Crime is on the rise, the police have gone complacent, and a new team of vigilantes are causing more problems than they’re fixing. When Clara and her peers find themselves swept up in the chaos and no longer able to tell the good guys from the bad, no one is sure which side of hero vs. villain they’ll fall on.

4. Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

I was actually looking to see if there was a sequel to My Lady Jane when I stumbled across this and it sounds SO awesome from what little I've read about it! I mean...she had me at "illegal dragon trafficking"! There's not much information on it yet as it's not out until later in the year, but it sounds promising! In the mean time I'm going to be reading the Orphan Queen to tide me over! 

"Before She Ignites is a new fantasy trilogy about a girl stripped from her political family and imprisoned. As well as her fellow inmates who know more than they say, and a dangerous secret about illegal dragon trafficking that might be her only hope of escape."

5. Vigilante  by Kady Cross

I LOVE Kady Cross's Steampunk Chronicles series, it's one of my favourites and was one of the first steampunk books I ever read. I was so gutted when it ended and there weren't any more books and I've been waiting for Kady to write something new for so long! This is a bit of a departure from steampunk and my usual fantasy books but I'm willing to give it a go because Kady's previous books where so damn good! 

"It's senior year, and Hadley and her best friend, Magda, should be starting the year together. Instead, Magda is dead and Hadley is alone. Raped at a party the year before and humiliated, Magda was driven to take her own life and Hadley is forced to see her friend's attackers in the classroom every day. Devastated, enraged and needing an outlet for her grief, Hadley decides to get a little justice of her own.

Donning a pink ski mask and fueled by anger, Hadley goes after each of the guys one by one, planning to strip them of their dignity and social status the way they did to Magda. As the legend of the pink-masked Vigilante begins to take on a life of its own, Hadley's revenge takes a turn for the dangerous. Could her need for vengeance lead her down a path she can't turn back from?"

6. Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

I'm not going to lie, the cover caught my eye and I was like OOOOHHHHH! Then I realised who the other was and I was like AAAAAAAAHHH! Then I added it to my TBR and here we are today. I just...I was reading the synopsis and it was checking all of my boxes, and I was like..wow...this is going to be amazing, it has everything that I love! I have since berated myself for not reading TRATD yet BUT I WILL GET THERE! Either way, this sounds like it's going to be a fabulous new series! 

"The daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has long known her place—she may be an accomplished alchemist, whose cunning rivals that of her brother Kenshin, but because she is not a boy, her future has always been out of her hands. At just seventeen years old, Mariko is promised to Minamoto Raiden, the son of the emperor's favorite consort—a political marriage that will elevate her family's standing. But en route to the imperial city of Inako, Mariko narrowly escapes a bloody ambush by a dangerous gang of bandits known as the Black Clan, who she learns has been hired to kill her before she reaches the palace.

Dressed as a peasant boy, Mariko sets out to infiltrate the ranks of the Black Clan, determined to track down the person responsible for the target on her back. But she's quickly captured and taken to the Black Clan’s secret hideout, where she meets their leader, the rebel ronin Takeda Ranmaru, and his second-in-command, his best friend Okami. Still believing her to be a boy, Ranmaru and Okami eventually warm to Mariko, impressed by her intellect and ingenuity. As Mariko gets closer to the Black Clan, she uncovers a dark history of secrets, of betrayal and murder, which will force her to question everything she's ever known."

7. Wires and Nerves by Marissa Meyer

I'm so excited for this you guys, I loved Lunar Chronicles and Iko was one of my favourite characters and I really wanted to see more of her and Marissa has delivered! But we're not getting just another book, oh no...we're getting a GRAPHIC NOVEL SQUEEEEEE! I do love a good graphic novel and I've been staring at the cover for this like...this is going to be good. I can tell. I'm so intrigued to see where the story is going to go, and I'm excited to maybe catch a glimpse of some of my other favourite characters! I'm still so delighted but also surprised that Marissa chose to do this as a graphic novel, but it makes a nice change! 

"In her first graphic novel, bestselling author Marissa Meyer extends the world of the Lunar Chronicles with a brand-new, action-packed story about Iko, the android with a heart of (mechanized) gold. When rogue packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers threaten the tenuous peace alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko takes it upon herself to hunt down the soldiers' leader. She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity. With appearances by Cinder and the rest of the Rampion crew, this is a must-have for fans of the bestselling series."

8. Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I bet you all saw this coming! Two of my favourite things...Leigh Bardugo and Wonder Woman! COMBINED! Genuinely guys this is going to be so good, I can't even! When I heard Leigh was writing this I totally freaked out, like I'm excited about the other DC heroes books, but Wonder Woman is my fave and she's SUCH a perfect character for Leigh to write! I'm so excited to see what she does with Diana and to read this new instalment in Wonder Woman's history! I was going to include Leigh's new book on this list, Ninth House, but I can't find a release date for it so I'm not entirely sure it's this year! 

"She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .

Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war."

9. That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E. K Johnston

I loved A Thousand Nights when it was released, the cover was gorgeous and it wasn't at all what I was expecting! I still need to read the second book, but after reading the first I marked E.K down as a favourite author and kept an eye on her GoodReads page. This caught my eye because Victorian. I LOVE books set in the Victorian era, like I love other historical settings too but Victorian is my fave, especially if it has steampunk or supernatural things going on! There's not too much information on this book but I'm intrigued either way! I'm envisioning maybe not steampunk, but Victorian with some tech and future elements to it which should be interesting!

"That Inevitable Victorian Thing, imagines a near-future world where the sun never set on the British Empire, though it certainly rose over online dating."

10. Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

I'm not going to lie, I spotted this on GoodReads and it was the cover that had me clicking it to see what it was about! I love fairytale retellings, and this one sounds like it's going to be unique and a lot of fun! I'm loving the sound of the plot and the world of the book from the synopsis and you know...fae! 

"It all started with the burning of the spindles.
No.
It all started with a curse...

Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king's headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.
And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora's blood--and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.

As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.
Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape . . . or the reason for her to stay."

11. Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

I LOVE Maureen's books, like Shades of London is one of my favourite series ever, it's so original and spooky and gripping and I've been waiting for a fourth book for forever! It's finally out next year, but when I discovered this I was like "Okay...this can tide me over until then!" This sounds so brilliant, creepy and murdery and like it's going to be another original and fun book from Maureen! I need it nooooww! 

 "Something is wrong at Ellingham Academy: Its murderous past won’t stay in the past.
Ellingham Academy is an American institution. Students can’t buy admission, they have to earn it: these are the brightest of their generation, the thinkers, inventors, artists, dreamers, and schemers who will change the world. Ellingham is the brainchild of philanthropist and tycoon Edward J. Ellingham, who happened on a remote, idyllic spot outside of Burlington, Vermont in the 1920s, the perfect setting for his “dream school of the future.” For Ellingham, the dream ended a decade later, when his wife and child were kidnapped, then murdered, in what would become the crime of the century. Ellingham pledged everything to find the killer—he ended up giving his life.

It was an empty sacrifice: For years, the killer remained at large. He taunted the police, signing his letters Truly, Devious. Eventually, someone was caught, found guilty, and executed for the heinous crimes… but questions lingered. Why, for example, did Ellingham write these words on the day he died?
Where do you look for someone
who’s never really there?
Always on a staircase
but never on a stair.

Every institution has its ghost stories; every school imagines itself haunted. Ellingham Academy is, officially, beyond such silliness: it is devoted to greatness, and everyone accepted achieves it.
This includes Stevie Bell, who gained her fame by solving a murder when she was thirteen years old. Clever murders don’t happen along very often, and Stevie has been struggling to find her place in the competitive atmosphere of Ellingham. Then she finds out about the decades-old Ellingham riddle: Problem solved. She’ll solve the riddle, name the real killer, and prove herself exceptional. True Ellingham material.

Her investigation into the cold case is interrupted by a fresh one. When one of her classmates, internet superstar Hayes Major, turns up dead, Stevie is the first to question the official explanation. An accident? Really? Everyone else is convinced that Ellingham’s murderous past is just that, which leaves justice up to Stevie."

12. Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

Rhiannon is the author of a brilliant little Sleeping Beauty retelling, and when I spotted this, I knew I had to read it! This is a standalone, and it's pitched as a cross between Queen of the Tearling and The Girl of Fire and Thorns! That alone has grabbed my interest, because I freaking love Queen of the Tearling! I have a feeling I'm going to be disappointed that this is only one book, and that we don't get more books in it's world or more of the characters! Really good standalones always make me feel like that because I end up wanting more! 

"Freya was never meant be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly and the king and those closest to him are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne.

Freya may have escaped the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life.

Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself.

As Freya’s enemies close in and her loyalties are tested, she must decide if she is ready to rule and, if so, how far she is willing to go to keep the crown."

13. Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

This is another release with not much information about it, but it totally had me at "were-dragons". Seriously. I love dragons okay, and so if I see the word "Dragon" in any shape or form I'm like GIMME GIMME! But that coupled with what I do know about the book makes it sound like a fabulously original and fun read! I mean...dragons pulling off a heist but then dark truths revealed, who doesn't want to read that!? 

"Fire and Heist is a YA novel about a girl with a big secret. She comes from a family of were-dragons who must steal their first treasure hoard to gain power and acceptance, but while attempting her first heist, she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society that is more valuable – and dangerous – than any gold or jewels."

14. Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

I've heard incredibly good things about Elise's other series, Air Awakens, and it's on my TBR list! I'm hoping to get them and read them in the near future but my regular TBR is crazy right now so we'll see! Again...the word dragon is mentioned in the synopsis so it was an immediate add, especially when combined with an alchemists guild and everything else in the synopsis! 

"Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.

Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.

When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.

He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom."

15. Dark Breaks the Dawn by Sara B. Larson

I feel like Sara's other book, Defy, is really underrated! I've only read the first in the trilogy and I need to read the others, but like I said...underrated! This new book from her is pitched as "Graceling meets Swan Lake" and I'm totally here for that! I used to be obsessed with the old animated Swan Lake movie when I was younger, and there's few retellings of it out there that I've found to be good. I have every confidence from what I know of the book and from reading Sara's other book, that this is going to be really, really good! 

"On her eighteenth birthday, Princess Evelayn of Eadrolan, the Light Kingdom, can finally access the full range of her magical powers. The light looks brighter, the air is sharper, and the energy she can draw when fighting feels almost limitless.

But while her mother, the queen, remains busy at the war front, in the Dark Kingdom of Dorjhalon, the corrupt king is plotting. King Bain wants control of both kingdoms, and his plan will fling Evelayn onto the throne much sooner than she expected.

In order to defeat Bain and his sons, Evelayn will quickly have to come into her ability to shapeshift, and rely on the alluring Lord Tanvir. But not everyone is what they seem, and the balance between the Light and Dark comes at a steep price."

16. Roar by Cora Carmack

I stared at this for so long before I realised why the authors name was familiar, and it's because she writes some NA books that I'm quite partial to! Seriously, I love NA books they're great for reading when I need a pick me up and Cora writes some fantastic ones! So I'm really excited to see her do a YA fantasy! I read the synopsis and it has so many things that check every box I have for a book that I'm going to love! Cool magic, brooding Prince, magic, adventure, "handsome young storm hunter" and romance. GIVE IT TO ME NOW!

"In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.

Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora’s been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.

To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.

Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage. 
She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough. 
Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master."

I totally spotted this on GoodReads and the title grabbed my attention! And the cover because it kind of reminded me of My Lady Jane's! I've been eyeing up This Monstrous Thing and A Tyranny of Petticoats for so long, it's not even funny! But when I saw this I had to immediately add it to my TBR because it sounds so different! Plus you know....18th century...Europe...romance...intrigue...GIMME.

"An unforgettable tale of two friends on their Grand Tour of 18th-century Europe who stumble upon a magical artifact that leads them from Paris to Venice in a dangerous manhunt, fighting pirates, highwaymen, and their feelings for each other along the way.

Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.

But as Monty embarks on his grand tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores."

18. Steam Raiders by Sara Raasch

Okay there's like..nothing on this, no cover, no title, no pre-order and no synopsis but it's Sara so you know it's going to be awesome! Plus it's going to fill the Snow Like Ashes shaped void in our lives since the trilogy ended! Sara had my immediate love for the book with the words "Spanish Inquisition" "Pirates" and "prince". GIVE IT TO ME NOW. 

"Inspired by the Spanish Inquisition and the golden age of piracy, it follows three characters: a woman seeking justice, a tortured pirate looking for redemption, and an ambitious prince out for power. Publication is slated for fall 2017."


~~~~

19. Terra by A.C. Gaughen

Another read that doesn't have a cover or a proper synopsis yet, but it still sounds awesome anyway! I've been itching to get my hands on Gaughens' Scarlet series, and this sounds like it's going to be just as different and original! I'm coming up with all kinds of potential things for this book and I'm excited to see where the author is going to go with this!

"A new YA fantasy in which elemental powers are reawakened after a genocide, and a girl realizes she has the power to control the earth on the same day she marries the king who hunted the Elementae to extinction."


~~~~

20. The Valiant by Lesley Livingstone

You had me at "female gladiator" i'm not going to lie! I don't usually go for Roman books all that much, but this sounds like something a little bit different from the norm and I'm totally here for that! 

"The youngest daughter of a proud Celtic king, Fallon has always lived in the shadow of her older sister Sorcha's legendary reputation as a warrior. But when Fallon was a young child, the armies of Julius Caesar invaded the island of Britain and her beloved older sister was killed in battle.

On the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Fallon is excited to follow in her sister's footsteps and earn her rightful place in her father's royal war band. But she never gets the chance. Instead, Fallon is captured by a band of ruthless brigands who sell her to an exclusive training school for female gladiators—and its most influential patron is none other than Julius Caesar himself. In a cruel twist of fate, Fallon's worst enemy, the man who destroyed her family, might be her only hope of survival.

Now, Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries, chilling threats and the dangerous attention of Caesar himself to survive the deadly fights that take place both in and out of the arena—and claim her place in history among the Valiant."

21. Frogkisser by Garth Nix

I still haven't gotten around to reading Sabriel yet, but I have read Newt's Emerald and it totally left me wanting more than one book! I will forever be devastated that it's just a one off! So I'm well aware I'm probably going to end up feeling the same about this but it sounds like so much fun I'm finding it hard to care about that right now! 

"Poor Princess Anya. Forced to live with her evil stepmother's new husband, her evil stepstepfather. Plagued with an unfortunate ability to break curses with a magic-assisted kiss. And forced to go on the run when her stepstepfather decides to make the kingdom entirely his own.

Aided by a loyal talking dog, a boy thief trapped in the body of a newt, and some extraordinarily mischievous wizards, Anya sets off on a Quest that, if she plays it right, will ultimately free her land-and teach her a thing or two about the use of power, the effectiveness of a well-placed pucker, and the finding of friends in places both high and low."
