With a new year comes new resolutions which you may or may not keep, new blog posts waiting to be written and read and, above all, lots and lots of new exciting book releases!
Today I'm sharing some of those new releases I'm most excited about. If there's a book you've been anticipating but I haven't included in my list, let me know so that I might check it out. I've tried listing the books according to their release dates although for some it hasn't been finalized yet.
A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
This is the sequel to A Darker Shade of Magic, which I haven't actually read yet but which I'm hoping to soon. I read Vicious by the same author last year and loved it and I can't wait to read more of her books.
Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
Released on: February 2nd
This is an anthology collecting the different companion short stories Marissa Meyer wrote for her series The Lunar Chronicles and it will come with a bunch of newly written stories as well. While I'm still a bit sad that the series is now over, this collection comes as a little bonus trip back to the universe of Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter.
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
Released on: March 8th
The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan
Released on: May 3rd
This marks the start of a new series set in the Percy Jackson universe. As excited as I am by the promise of some more of Greek demigods and Camp Half-Blood, I'm also a little apprehensive as to how the book will be executed. Apollo will be going to Camp Half-Blood as a mortal teenager. Sure, sounds just like your regular Rick Riordan quest adventure. Except for the tiny fact that this newly mortal teenager is actually the father to a whole bunch of kids at Camp Half-Blood! I will be reading the book because I'd read anything by Rick Riordan, but I'm just a little anxious as to how it'll play out.
The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase #2) by Rick Riordan
Released on: October 4th
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Released on: November 8th
So those were some of my most anticipated book releases of the year, although I'm sure I'll be adding more titles to my TBR as the year unfolds. Which of these books are you most excited for? Let me know in the comments!
