book-wait-for-me-feature-1It’s that time of year again. Another season is upon us, which means there’s another season of anticipated books to enjoy.

RELATED | Truthwitch – Susan Dennard’s Highly Anticipated YA Fantasy

In the middle of the incredulity that another year has passed, and a new one is here, there is at least one thing I most anticipate about any new season. The new books authors and publishing houses have in store for avid readers. Even at this early stage, 2017 is shaping up to be amazing, with the promise of so much more to come.

The list below is in no way, shape or form a comprehensive one, but it’s a small look at what’s to come. Specifically, today I’m giving you a little peek into the YA books (from all genres like contemporary to fantasy and romance!) arriving on store shelves in January – March.
