Every year, millions of new books are published, and 2017 is no exception. This year, we hope you’ve made a resolution to read some great books and even participate in the FFL 2017 Reading Challenge. 2017 is full of great books, and if you’re looking for something new, you don’t have to look far. We’ve compiled some of the most anticipated releases of the first sixth months of 2017 for you. Pre-order now or put them on your wish list, but you’ll want to read these.

If you’re looking for some great fiction books, I highly recommend The Most Dangerous Place on Earth, Alex and Eliza: A Love Story, and Long May She Reign. Some highly anticipated nonfiction releases include Milo Yiannopoulos’s Dangerous and Laurie Hernandez’s biography: I Got This!

2017 is also going to be the year of the series, as new installments in some massively popular series are released, including A Court of Wings and Ruin, King’s Cage, Our Dark Duet, and Now I Rise. Some popular authors are also back in 2017, including Neil Gaiman, Ellen Hopkins, Paula Hawkins, Melissa de la Cruz, and Richelle Meade.

I’m really excited about The You I’ve Never Known, King’s Cage, and I See You. I love how Ellen Hopkins works with such hard issues like prostitution, drug addiction, and abuse and crafts beautiful works from them. I’ve really enjoyed the Red Queen series and will be interested to see how it ends. I See You captivated me from the first line of its description and I love a good thriller. It could be this year’s “Gone Girl” or “Girl on the Train.”

What will you read in the first half of 2017? Tweet us @FFL_Of_America and use #FFLReadingChallenge to keep up with other young conservative readers.
