  1. I didn't know about A Darkness Absolute so thank you for mentioning it!! I am excited to see Rogue One although I can't see it until after the 21st unfortunately!

  2. If we based it on covers alone, many of those would make my list too. Of course, they all do sound good too. I'm really excited to read Burning Page. And I Found You Looks really good too. All of them do. So many great sounding books are coming out this next year!

  3. Is The Winds of Winter really a thing that is going to happen!? I am kind of shocked hahaha. I also need to read the first Starflight book, and the first Invisible Library book. And The Immortals, because that series is serious cover goals. I am so behind! Great list!

    1. I think... the Winds of Winter is wishful thinking on my part lol. I just added it to see what people would say (and maybe if I say it's coming out in 2017 it'll happen? Yeah silly me). Dude you need to read The Immortals, I want to know what you think!

  4. Ooh interesting list! :-) I hope that you enjoy these books and that they live up to your expectations.

  5. Ha ha ha.... I had to chuckle. I'm not sure you'll see all of these in 2017 but we can hope! GRRM plays by no rules though.

    Lovely covers as usual Greg and I really like the one for Witchwood Crown. Lovely. :)

  6. The Starfall cover looks gorgeous! And I am hoping to read more Kelley Armstrong in 2017 :)

    1. Same here. And yes Starfall is awesome!

  7. I stopped looking forward to "The Winds of Winter" a long time ago as some kind of self-preservation to not get disappointed over and over again – I just hope GRRM finishes it before he dies xD

    However I am already excited for "The Burning Page" as well but I still need to read the second book first. If that's as good as "The Invisible Library" than the third one is going to be a must-buy, especially since the covers are so damn pretty :D

    1. I hear you, I fear I won't be seeing Winds in 2017 but I had to try. :)

      Delete
  8. Winter of the Gods has a great cover and I'm in two minds about trying the series. I love Greek Gods but not sure if it would be my kind of read. Further investigation required I think. I'll need to wait the best part of a year before I get my hands on the latest Mercy Thompson when it comes out in paperback!

    1. I liked the first one but I had to get a few chapters in. It's not the usual UF I think. I don't know if I'll like Mercy Thompson but I hope so??

      Delete
  9. I really want to read Starflight (and Starfall) in 2017. The Invisible Library is also on my hope to read list! I'm going to check out Winter of the Gods and The Witchwood Crown now too. Great list!

    My Top Ten

    1. I thought Winter of the Gods (or the first one rather) was quite good. And The Invisible Library was too!

  10. I didn't know Lisa Jewell has a new book!

    1. I've only read one of hers so I'm anxious to try another!

  11. I need to start that Kelley Armstrong series. I grabbed the first one from Book Outlet and LOVE all of her other stuff. I should also probably catch up on the Mercy Thompson books - I think I'm two behind. Great list as always!

    1. I liked City of the Lost. And the Mercy books- I need to start 'em.

  12. Starfall looks really good. I just looked it up on Goodreads. So does the Tad Williams book. Definitely a great list and thanks for sharing!

  13. This is the 3rd time I've seen Starfall today, I must be living under a rock or something to have missed it! I've added the Olympus Bound series on my TBR, thanks for the rec!

  16. Keep seeing Starfall on these lists. I haven't really paid much attention to what's coming out. Winter of the Gods and The Witchwood Crown are two I will need to look into.

    1. Winter of the Gods I think will be good, if The Immortals was any indication. I didn't see a ton of reviews of that one in the blogosphere, but I thought it was pretty good.

      Delete
  17. Is The WInds of Winter really happening? I'm so desperate for the next book. I can't even watch the show because I just want the next book so bad LOL! Great list. :D

    1. I don't know but I highly doubt we'll get it in 2017... that was sorta wishful thinking on my part. I couldn't resist. :) And I hear you- I HATE watching the show without reading first!

      Delete
  18. I Found You sounds fantastic! It is going on my 2017 to read list.

    1. Yes- this week was terrible for me, I think I added at least three. And yes Winds of Winter is the next book, although purely wishful thinking on my part lol. Far as I know there's no release date yet, but I'm pretending. :)

  24. A Darkness Absolute is one of my top picks for 2017! I'm also super stoked for Silence Fallen since the whole Mercy universe has taken a really interesting turn.

    1. I hear so much about the Mercy books and even though I don't read PNR I want to try those. And darkness Absolute- definitely, after City of the Lost I'm ready for more!

    1. Same here. I need to try Briggs in 2017. This was my first Armstrong and based on it I would recommend her. Lisa Jewell I've only read the one, but I liked it- and it made me think.

  32. Heh, I didn't put The Burning Page on my list because I'm sneakily hoping to buy it this week and read it before the end of the year as a Christmas present to myself :) I have seen Jordanna Max Brodsky on a few lists now and I don't know her work at all - clearly I should do some investigating...

    1. I've been known to , um, buy myself presents too- especially books, so don't feel bad. :) The Immortals was pretty good, so if you get a chance to check it out maybe it will work for you.

      Delete
  33. I'm really looking forward Winter of the Gods. Also, I would *love* for Winds of Winter to release (but I'm not holding my breath,distracting myself with all the other books until I hear something official)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I know almost nothing about the book - I'll goodreads it in a moment- but omg that cover for Starfall! I just love it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I really need to get caught up on the Mercy Thompson series! I also want to try Kelley Armstrong's mysteries. They sound so good. I hadn't heard of I Found You before, but that one's going on my Wishlist too!
