Another year has come to an end and the Bookish Ladies are looking forward to a new year and ever growing TBRs. What are we looking forward to in 2017? Well, we’ll tell you.

What Jennifer is Most Looking Forward to in 2017


Love Story, Karen Kingsbury

Love Story will be the latest installment in Karen’s Baxter Family series. This book will take a look back and tell the story of John and Elizabeth Baxter, where the whole Baxter Family story began.

If Not for You, Debbie Macomber

I have come to enjoy Debbie Macomber more and more recently. Her next stand alone novel will hit bookshelves everywhere in March 2017.

The Fix, David Baldacci

This will be the 3rd installment in Baldacci’s Amos Decker series. I love this series for how different Decker is. He’s no Jack Reacher but he still gets the job done.

Secrets by the Sea, Lisa Ricard Claro

Lisa mentioned her newest novel in a recent blog post. It will be the beginning of a new series and I’m so excited to read it. Lisa says that release is some time away but I’m hoping it will be sometime this year.

*As of the writing of this post, I have not seen news on the 2017 releases for Sandra Brown, Harlan Coben or Emily March but they’ll certainly be on my TBR!

The Books on Jess’ 2017 TBR List


As I was thinking about creating this list, I realized that I don’t really know what books I’m most looking forward to reading in 2017. Yes, I have a short list of upcoming books by favorite authors but, after so many surprising 5 stars reads last year,  I think what I’m most looking forward to are finding new books I don’t yet know that I’ll love. Here are some books I’ll definitely be reading this year though.

Beartown by Fredrik Backman: Fredrick Backman and HOCKEY!

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth: I’m cautiously hopeful about this one since I, unlike so many others, did not dislike Allegiant.

Seven Stones to Stand or Fall by Diana Gabaldon: I admit it, I’m an Outlander addict and in the wait for the next book I’ll take whatever I can get.

Echoes in Death by JD Robb: Eve and Roarke…need I say more?

Writings from Ancient Egypt (Penguin Classics) by Toby Wilkinson: I think I’m going to combine reading this book with a trip to The Met.

And as always I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this is the year that we finally get to read Doors of Stone but I know, wishes.
