December 13:  Top Ten Books I'm Looking Forward To For The First Half Of 2017

It's pretty self-explanatory, so let's go on ahead to what books I'm looking forward to from January-June 2017:

10. How to be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life
by Lilly Singh (IISuperwomanII)
Release date: March 28, 2017


I just recently got into watching Lilly's videos on Youtube, and I think she's hilarious! She has so many relatable videos about herself as a woman of color in comedy, plus it's inspiring to see how she went from suffering from depression to one of the most successful Youtubers of the next generation. I can't wait to see what stories and advice she has in her debut guide book. 

9. The Hate U Give
by Angie Thomas


I haven't heard of Angie Thomas but I do know how crucial the Black Lives Matter movement has been in the black community. So I'm intrigued to see how Angie uses fiction to illustrate a real moment in time. Also, it counts as an #OwnVoices book because both the author and main characters are from the same cultural background; they understand each other and what they need to do to live freely. 

8. Our Own Private Universe
by Robin Talley
Release date: January 31, 2017


I don't know much about this book, but I find the synopsis to be really cute. And bisexual representation isn't a topic I haven't read yet. I've read LGBT books before, but this would be my first bi book. 

Sorry that this list is so short. I really didn't anticipate many books in those six months, besides all the good books I'm looking forward to are in the later months of 2017. Also, a lot of books I haven't read yet have come out already. 

But I'd love to know your choices, so leave comments below!
