It’s almost 2017 and with the new year comes NEW BOOKS! I have known about these books for quite some time and I just can’t wait to read them!

I decided to divide this list into Young Adult and Historical Romance. These books are just the ones that I am impatiently waiting for. Oh sure, there are MOAR that I can’t wait to read but these are my top ten!

Let’s see if you are waiting for the same books that I am! Also, if you have any recs, share them below!

Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer

This is a graphic novel and also a spin-off of the Lunar Chronicles and features Iko! Ahhh I absolutely love Iko! I mean, initially, she sounded so annoying but she really grew on me and stole my heart! And the crew from the Rampion will be showing up (okay, I only saw that as THORNE)!

Wintersong by S, Jae-Jones

The cover is gorgeous and the plot sounds really interesting! This sounds like a reimagining of the Hades/Persephone story but I also see The Princess and the Goblin in this!

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Another Beauty and the Beast retelling! I need me more of these! This one feels like it is in a historical setting but with a lot of action, especially since Yeva (Beauty) is hunting for the Beast!

A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi

I read The Star-Touched Queen early this year and I absolutely LOVED it! Obviously, I just can’t wait to read this companion book! This one features Gauri, the younger sister!

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

I haven’t read Renee Ahdieh before but this book sounds like a great one to start with. Flame in the Mist features a female Japanese warrior, too. Sign me up for this!

The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne

This is book 4 in the Victorian Rebels series and I absolutely cannot wait to read it! This book features Colin Talmage, the one handed Duke! The heroine for this one features a nurse and a spy! I have to admit this is one of my favorite tropes!

Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas

I have been waiting for this book since the moment I knew who the characters were going to be! I mean, who wouldn’t love to see Evie and St. Vincent’s son, Gabriel? Plus, the heroine is the Pandora!

From Duke Till Dawn by Eva Leigh

Oh ho ho ho! Now this one features a Duke and a trickster who pretended to be a widow but was in fact, a con artist! I love reading about female con artists since that is not a common plot in historical romances!

The Pleasures of Passion by Sabrina Jeffries

This is a second chance romance trope and it features Brilliana, the widow from The Danger of Desire!

The Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean

Aha! Another second chance romance! This time, the hero and heroine are already married!


What books are you waiting for in 2017? Do you have any books on my list that you are waiting for?
