Most Excited/Anticipated Books of 2017 and Update

     Hey, everyone! I know that it has been such a long time since I have been blogging and bookstagramming. I am truly sorry. I have been wanting to read more since I have gotten out of school, which was a couple of weeks ago. Now, I have returned to school for summer school, but I am still trying to catch up on my blogging. For the time that I had stopped blogging, I had been going through school and trying to keep up with my reading. I also have a big deal with perfection and wanting to make and do things right. Because of that, I did not want to just spit something out and publish it, regretting it later on in life. I want to write and publish my own writings on my own accords, which is making sure I approve of everything I write and letting all my readers be happy with what they are reading.
    Now that I have let you all get updated with what is going on in my life, it is time to go back to books(my favorite!). Over the past month, Book Expo, Bookcon, and countless other book conventions and festivals have been bringing booklovers and bookbloggers together to celebrate books. At most of these events, there are ARCs(Advanced Reader's Copy) and finished copies given out to public for reviews in return. Unfortunately, since I am fourteen, I do not live in New York or any of the other convention places, and I have no money, I am unable to go to these conventions to meet other bloggers and booklovers and get free books with just the cost of a ticket. I so wish I could've gone. Maybe next year. Maybe next year. Also, at these events, publishing companies and other book companies display new releases that are coming out later in the year or the following year. I have compiled a list of books that were shown at Book Expo and Bookcon, which I have seen from other people's vlogs or blogs, and decided to show everyone reading this blog which ones I am most excited for.
Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings:
First and foremost, most teenagers my age watch YouTube. Most of them may not watch BookTube, but they watch other creators and vloggers on the popular social media platform. One of the BookTubers I watch is Sasha Alsberg, whose channel is abookutopia(I will leave link down below). She and Lindsay Cummings have written a novel over the past year called Zenith. I have wanted to read this so bad since Sasha is one of my favorite YouTubers. I am so proud that one of the people I look up to is following her dream of becoming an author with an awesome collaborator, such as Lindsay Cummings.
They Both Die in the End by Adam Silvera:
I have heard so many good things about Adam Silvera and his novels. With some bestselling novels, such as More Happy Than Not and History is All You Left Me, it seems Adam Silvera is taking over the LGBQ+ young adult community. I hope one day I can read one of Silvera's books and understand the hype surrounding it.
The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken:
After hearing phenomenal reviews of the Passenger duology and The Darkest Minds trilogy, The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding, Bracken's first middle grade novel, sounds like an interesting new world I would like to read. As with the other books, I have no idea what they are about, but I have heard great things about the author and her works. I hope to soon read one of Bracken's novels soon.
Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco:
This is book two in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco. Stalking Jack the Ripper was also one of my most anticipated reads in 2016 but I never got around to picking it up and reading it. I have heard great things about both books, even though Hunting Prince Dracula has not been released yet. I hope, once I get my hands on these two books, I will enjoy these books very much.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black:
I have read two books that were written by Holly Black. It was a collaboration between Cassandra Clare and Holly Black for the Magisterium Series. The Cruel Prince, however, is only written by Holly Black, which in the parts I have read in the Magisterium Series, I have found well-written, even though I can not tell the difference between the two authors. I hope I can soon pick this up, but as it is being released in 2018, I may not be able to read it until it is released.
There's Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins:
In the world of young adult books, Stephanie Perkins is the renowned contemporary author of Isla and the Happily Ever After, Anna and the French Kiss, and Lola and the Boy Next Door. This is her first thriller; and as with all the other author's, I have not read any of Perkins's other books as expected. There is a trend of me not reading the other author's books in this post, isn't there?*Sigh*Well, I hope to pick up her other books soon to see if I like her writing style.
Warcross by Marie Lu:
Still going on with the trend of not reading the other books written by the author, I have not read Marie Lu's other novels. I really hope I can read Warcross and her other books soon. I just have to remember to buy them.😬
Wonder Woman: Warbringer and Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo:
Finally, an author whose books I have read has come up. I love Leigh Bardugo's Grisha trilogy/universe and cannot wait for this book to come into my collection of Bardugo's books, which are amazing and you should definitely pick them up if you have not yet. I also love Wonder Woman from the DC comics and movies. I cannot wait to get my hands on this book.
Also, Language of Thorns is coming out, too, and I cannot wait for this book also. This is a collection of stories from the Grisha universe that are referenced to in the Grisha trilogy. I cannot dive into it once I get my hands on it. Do not be confused if I start stroking it in public and start saying my precious to it.
   Well, this is my list of the books I want that have been recently given out at Book Expo and Bookcon. I hope you can forgive me if you like any of the authors I have mentioned that I have not read yet, but if you have any suggestion on any other books I should be on the lookout for, just drop a comment in the comment section below. Thank you for reading and have a fantastic day. Bye. It is nice to talk to you again.
