A new year, a new collection of books to add to your TBR list which is really getting too long and you should probably do something about that, okay? Or is that just me? Either way there are tons of exciting new releases coming out this year. Here are five books coming out in 2017 that I am eagerly awaiting.
- History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
Griffin always expected his ex-boyfriend Theo to be his future (even if they’re broken up now, and Theo’s moved on to Jackson), but when Theo dies in a tragic drowning accident Griffin doesn’t know where to turn. He’s deep in despair, his OCD is getting worse, and to make matters even more complicated Jackson seems to be the only person to really understand his grief. No one but Griffin can save himself, though, and it will take confronting his past for Griffin to find some way to move forward.
I fell in love with Adam Silvera’s writing last year when I read his debut novel More Happy Than Not. Even though I’ve only read one of his books, he has become one of those authors (and I don’t have many) where I will pre-order anything he writes. That’s how much I loved More Happy Than Not. It was poignant, the characters were honest, and the story was equal parts touching and heartbreaking (with just a dash of near-future sci-fi, which I always love). I’m very excited to see what he’s done with this next novel, and I have high hopes that History is All You Left Me will be just as incredible.
Release date: January 17, 2017
