Top Ten First-Half-of-2017 Releases on My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme for list-loving bloggers that is hosted by the team over at The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, readers compile a list of their favorite books, authors, or other literature-related things that fall under a certain category.

Today's topic is "top ten books on my TBR for the first half of 2017," but since I'm uncharacteristically behind on my to-read-list-planning, I decided to list January-through-June 2017 releases I can't wait to read. 

Bisexuality representation! An unusual setting (youth group mission trip to Mexico)! And all by an author I adore. What more could I ask for?

I'll automatically read anything by Nina LaCour, and this book's beautiful cover and synopsis only increase my excitement.

If this book isn't already on your to-read list, where have you been? Between its inspiration (the Black Lives Matter movement) and the acclaim it has already received, it's sure to be excellent and so, so important. 

The Serpent King was one of my favorites of 2016, so my excitement for the author's sophomore novel is a given. 

Guys. This book is about a graffiti artist. Who's Deaf. And who gets into a graffiti war. I'm so excited. 

I've been waiting for a new Sara Zarr novel since 2013. I can't wait for this book about sisterhood and broken homes. 

Adi Alsaid's first two books are absolutely delightful and so much fun, so I'll be picking this one up ASAP.

I'm one thousand percent here for interracial f/f romances between two women of color. Please send this one (and any others you know of—there aren't nearly enough!) my way.

Five strangers walk into detention. Only four walk out alive. I'm already in suspense.

Arranged marriage rom-com? Sign me up immediately. 

What early-2017 releases are you anticipating? Are any of these on your to-read list?
