Happy New Years Day!!!! If I was home in South Carolina right now, we would be having collard greens and black eyed peas as part of our traditional lunch. I don’t know when this started or why we do it, but we do, and honestly it is not my favorite part of NYD. With it being the new year, means that I have to come up with some new years resolutions!
Sam’s New Years Resolutions:
- Read 100 books in 2017 (Goodreads Challenge)
- 17 of those books should be from this list
- Write and defend my thesis (hopefully I’ll be done and be able to graduate by December)
- Blog at least 3 times a week (let’s see if I can do a better job this year)
- Visit somewhere new
What are your family traditions on this day? Do you have any reading/blog resolutions?
So without further ado, here are 17 books that I am looking forward to this year (if you click the covers, it will take you to their Goodreads page)!
Roseblood by A.G. Howard

A retelling of Phantom of the Opera? Yes, please!

I will gladly dive back into the Lunar Chronicles universe, anytime day or night.
King’s Cage (Red Queen #3) by Victoria Aveyard

Showalter is one of my instant buy authors! I just loved her White Chronicle series, so I have high hopes for this series. Which means I have until the end of February to read the fist book!

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Expected Publication: March 28th 2017

I just started reading Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, and I love it. So I can just imagine that this will be a great new book!
Missing by Kelley Armstrong
Expected Publication: April 18th 2017

This seems a bit different from Armstrong’s normal paranormal books, so I am very excited to read this one!
