53 Books Releasing in January 2017

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

I am a total nerd when it comes to keeping track of new books and their release dates, so I thought I'd share my full list with you all in hopes that you will find a new book or two to read or look forward to!

My plan is to release each month's list by the 15th of the previous month—for example, the February 2017 edition will be posted by January 15th. (I'm a little late with this month's, but I didn't actually decide to do this until a couple of days ago. If you've been around here for a little while now, you might remember I tried to do something called "Up & Coming." It didn't work out, so I hope this DOES!)

  • To order a book on Amazon, click on the cover (note: they're affiliate links!)
  • To add a book to your Goodreads page / read the synopsis, click on the title link.
  • All titles in italics are sequels.
  • Most of the titles shared below are categorized under Young Adult, but there are a couple of crime fiction reads. This list isn't meant to be exclusive, so if you know of any other titles — please let me know! (See next bullet point for more details.) I just don't know where to look for books outside the genre I read.
  • If you would like to add your book(s) below or in any of my future "releases" posts, please email me at amarisafloria@gmail.com or leave a comment.
  • All research/images/dates/etc. are gathered via Amazon, Edelweiss, and Goodreads.

  1. Whew, this is an exhausting task! There are so many good ones coming out in January! Those couple of weeks with LOTSA books make me nervous for work that week--so much to put out! (But that's actually my favorite.) :D

  2. It takes me quite some time, but I have a lot of fun looking for new titles! Do you put out all the releases on the same day? (Tuesday, I assume? Or Monday night? Haha :p)

  3. It really depends! Some books are strict on sale, per the publisher, so those can't be put out or sold before their street date, but others just come in regularly. I try by best not to put them out too early--sometime Monday, at the earliest, if I can--but some weeks I'm so swamped (and I'm the only person who does the teen and kid's books, so it's up to me to get it done!), they go up when they go up, whether that's early or late is luck of the draw!
