I like to mix up my reading schedule a bit and add a few new releases to the pile. I’m always amazed at how other book bloggers can keep up with all the new releases. It seems ten new and amazing books come out every day. It’s enough to drive any book lover gaga just trying to keep up. That’s why I try to limit my TBR with books based on a few factors. 1. Do I like the author. 2. Is it part of a series that I’ve read/want to read. And finally 3. does it sound like something I would enjoy?
Based on those three criteria, here are picks for 2017.
I mentioned earlier this year that I started reading the Stormlight Archive series. I listened to the first two books in the series via audiobook and really enjoyed them. The third book is due to come out in November. And now I have a dilemma. Do I wait for the audiobook or just buy the hardcover? The narrators for the audiobook are actually a husband and wife duo, who are just fantastic. But on the other hand I don’t want to have the book spoiled by people who read the book instead. I still have a few months to decide.
This one is a no brainer. I freaking loved The Martian by Weir. Artemis is Weir’s second novel and focuses on the Moon instead of Mars. I really hope that this novel is just as funny and charming as The Martian. This book is also due out in November. Better hurry up and place my hold at the library!
Another author on this list that I am a fan of is Brian McClellan. His Power Mage series is probably one of my favorite fantasy series that I’ve read in the last five years. It’s that good. Heck, I even got my husband to read all three books, and that my friends is a true testament of how good these books are. Sins of Empire is the first book in a new series, but still set in the same universe as the Powder Mage trilogy. I’m really looking forward to diving back into this world that McClellan has made. At it was released in March, so I don’t have to wait!
