screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-9-40-10-am

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each Friday, and the goal is to promote the book blogging and author community to join together and support each other! Each Friday, a new prompt is posted for everyone to answer, and today’s prompt is…

What is your most anticipated book of 2017?

Now, you may remember that I did a post featuring my top 7 anticipated New Releases, but you may ALSO remember that I said I had to try SO HARD to end that list at 7 books, so the list I’ll include here will exclude those 7. As a reminder, those 7 were: Caraval, A Court of Wings and Ruin, Final Girls, Her Every Fear, I See You, Behind Her Eyes, or The Breakdown.

Without further ado, here are some additional books I can’t wait to read in 2017 as well as their description from Goodreads!

Into The Water by Paula Hawkins

screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-9-25-18-am

A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.

Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother’s sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she’d never return.

With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.

Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.

Quicksand by Malin Persson Giolito

A mass shooting has taken place at a prep school in Stockholm’s wealthiest suburb. Maja Norberg is eighteen years old and on trial for her involvement in the massacre where her boyfriend and best friend were killed. When the novel opens, Maja has spent nine excruciating months in jail awaiting trial. Now the time has come for her to enter the courtroom. But how did Maja, the good girl next door who was popular and excelled at school, become the most hated teenager in the country? What did Maja do? Or is it what she didn’t do that brought her here

 

Perfect (Flawed #2) by Cecilia Ahern

screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-9-29-52-amCelestine North lives in a society that demands perfection. After she was branded Flawed by a morality court, Celestine’s life has completely fractured–all her freedoms gone. 

Since Judge Crevan has declared her the number one threat to the public, she has been a ghost, on the run with Carrick–the only person she can trust. 

But Celestine has a secret–one that could bring the entire Flawed system crumbling to
the ground. A secret that has already caused countless people to go missing. 

Judge Crevan is gaining the upper hand, and time is running out for Celestine. With tensions building, Celestine must make a choice: save just herself or to risk her life to save all Flawed people. 

And, most important of all, can she prove that to be human in itself is to be Flawed?

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-9-35-31-amThe Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.
 
Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
    Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule. 
    Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess. 
    Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
    Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
    And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.
 
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose? 
 
Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

  1. There are so many books that I am waiting to read in 2017! Like you, really want to get my hands on Court of Wings and Ruin and Caravel. I am also looking forward to two new books from my favorite authors ever: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor and Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth. I hope you have a great year full of amazing books!

  2. Quick Sand sounds very good – definitely adding it to my own list! And even though I didn’t quite like The Girl on the Train as much as I thought I would, I’m oddly excited to read Into the Water. It must be that book jacket: stunningly intriguing!
