“Can’t Wait” Books of Late 2017

Autumn Reads

So maybe you’ve heard, but I love lists. My day-to-day life might not be as organized as I would like, but I do enjoy creating book lists and putting together reading schedules because I’m a bit of a nut when it comes to things like that. It also has the added benefit of focusing my attention to the “must-read” releases that I’m excited about, so why not? I made lists for Early and Mid-2017 after all, so I’ve decided to do it once more for the final four months of the year. So here we go, these are the Science Fiction and Fantasy titles I’m really looking forward to in the rest of 2017…or at least I’ve tried to narrow down the list! What’s on your late-2017 “Must-Read” TBR? Anything you think I missed?

  1. My only concern with Winter’s Daughter is that there has been no kickstarter yet and if he’s planning on releasing it in December, people need time to fund it. I want a hardcover and if there isn’t one, well, I suspect that Dulgath will then have been my last Sullivan…


      • I actually joined up on GR just to ask him about the kickstarter [his blog seems dead and he’s not even clearing out spam comments] and have not had any response. I asked on the book page of Winter’s Daughter, not his author page. I might go check that out as well.

        I really hope he doesn’t push it back. But. I would rather have a hardcover later than no hardcover earlier. I liked how he handled the whole Dulgath kickstarter and was hoping this one would be similar. Doesn’t appear to be. Wondering if trying to do this AND his Age of Myth series is harder than he expected…


  2. It’s INSANE how many books are coming out this fall that look fantastic! I’m actually at a point where I’m wondering if I’ll get through all the 2017 titles I’d been hoping to read before the end of the year. Some might have to be holdovers for 2018…

    Regarding your list: I already have pre-orders in for the Rae Carson and Traci Chee books, and I won a Goodreads giveaway recently for The Beautiful Ones. And I’d love to check out An Enchantment of Ravens, Artemis, and The Tiger’s Daughter, but I’ll wait to read reviews on them first.

    And here are a few others I remembered:

    Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore
    The Book of Dust by Phillip Pullman
    Jane Unlimited by Kristen Cashore
    The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
    The Girl in the Tower by Katharine Arden


  3. I may have slightly over committed myself when it comes to October ARCs… there’s just so many good books coming out!

    I’m currently reading The Bloodprint (good so far, but I’m only a chapter or so in), and I just finished An Enchantment of Ravens (solid, but without that special spark that makes me really love a book). Others on your list I’m excited about include Provenance, An Unkindness of Magicians, The Stone in the Skull, Artemis, and Oathbringer.

    Books not on your list I’m excited about include Under the Pendulum Sun (I read an ARC and it was fantastic), An Unkindness of Ghosts (similarly wonderful), The Murders of Molly Southbourne (Tade Thompson really impressed me with Rosewater), Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, The Weaver’s Lament, Barbary Station, Beasts Made of Night, and The City of Brass.


    • I know what you mean about over committing yourself! I might have done the same thing…

      October is really insane! I’ve only completed a couple books so far in my September list, but we’ll see how long I can keep ahead of the release schedule 🙂

  4. This fall, especially October, is going to be insane.
    Books not included on the list that I’m looking forward to are:

    – Into the Drowning Deep
    – The World of Lore Volume 1
    – Creatures of Will and Temper
    – The Book of Dust (HOLY HELL FINALLY)


  5. I love these posts because it’s fun to see four months worth of book covers! I am looking forward to many of these as well, so I won’t list them all because we’ll be here all day, lol. But yes, so many awesome reads coming up through the end of the year. If only we had more days in the month to read them:-)


  6. And my wishlist grows! Seriously, this is a great post and I see lots of books I already had on my list and a few I need to add. I was approved for a digital arc of the Kevin Hearne book just yesterday. So exciting!


  7. I’ll be spending September tackling a pile of books that have been on my tbr for a couple of years! I haven’t paid a great deal of attention to new releases but Kill Creek sounds kind of interesting as long as it isn’t too slow!


  8. I love this list. Likewise I may have overcommitted slightly in the coming months – even though I was trying so hard to be good. There’s just such a lot to look forward to. I didn’t realise the Rachel Caine book was due out so quickly – definitely looking forward to picking that one up.
