Top 5: Most Anticipated Fall 2017 Releases!

Fall is pretty much the best time of year for book releases. There always are new books out that I want to read almost ever week each fall! I truly cannot believe that I’m already making this post – It feels like summer just started! However, fall coming means we are that much closer to the releases of these amazing books. My list is only going to include books that I haven’t read yet or don’t have ARCs of yet (because I was lucky enough to acquire many of my most anticipated fall releases at Bookcon or through trading!), otherwise it would include ones like Warcross by Marie Lu, They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera, Follow Me by Sara Shephard, and other fall releases that I was lucky enough to get to read early!  In order of release date, here are my Top 5 most anticipated Fall 2017 releases:


1. Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

33163378

Release Date: September 19th, 2017

What it’s about (from Goodreads)Viv’s mom was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ’90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother’s past and creates a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She’s just blowing off steam, but other girls respond. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.

I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this book. It sounds like a fun, feminist story about girls fighting back which is right up my alley. I’ve been wanting to read it for ages, and I’m so excited for it to finally be released!

Review:

(This is a review of an advance reading copy. All details are subject to change.)

Invictus honestly had one of the coolest concepts I’d ever heard. It was also compared to Guardians of the Galaxy, which is my favorite movie of all time, so needless to say, I went in with extremely high expectations. It wasn’t quite what I expected it to be, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The story takes place in the distant future (the year 2371) after time travel has been discovered and follows a crew of teens who are hired by a black market dealer to obtain long-lost items from the past. Far, the captain of the crew, is infamous for being born in a place “outside of time” while his mother was time travelling. The crew also includes Priya, a doctor, Gram, an engineer, Imogen, a historian, and a mysterious girl who changes everything for them. Their travels take them to the Titanic, the Library of Alexandria, Ancient Rome, and more.

Totally Should’ve Book Tag

I wasn’t tagged in this, but I saw it on bibliojessi‘s blog a few weeks ago and thought it would be fun to do to delay packing for moving back to school, lol. Definitely go check out her post, she has some great answers! This tag was created by Emmmabooks on Youtube. Now let’s get to it:

1. Totally should’ve gotten a sequel

1656001I will forever be salty that The Host by Stephanie Meyer never got a sequel. I know she was going to write one at one point but I think she stopped, because I haven’t heard anything about it in ages. This book was so good and I’m always gonna be wanting a sequel.

Discussion: Book Series That Should be Longer

I’m sure everyone here has had the experience of finishing a book series and still wanting more. Even if the ending is satisfying, it’s hard to let that world go! However, sometimes, the ending just isn’t satisfying at all and you know that there is so much more room in that world for more stories. The series I’m listing here are ones where the ending didn’t satisfy me, and I know there is realistically room for more. Of course, I may want 80 more Bloodlines books, but I know that’s just not realistic and I was satisfied with the ending. These series left me hanging and desperate for more books that sadly aren’t coming:
