It is already 2017, some series will finally come to an end, some would be much more epic for the release of the next book and some would introduce new characters to ship, to loath, and admire. In short, more books!
In my bookish resolution for this year, I stated that I want to read all the unread books on my shelf and reread some series or trilogies that I love. With that being said, I’m not really anticipating many books only the sequels to series that I have started in the past years. Although there are exceptions for some authors that I am truly anticipating every book.
Before listing down the books that I anticipated for this year, I would like to mention that this will be divided into two. The first half would be the books that I anticipated the most and I would be rushing to the bookstore the day it was released (although I doubt that our country would be releasing this book on the same day! -__-)! The other half would be the book that I am excited to read but it is not high on my priority list of the books that I need to buy.
Okay, let’s get into it!

The Winds of Winter by George R.R. Martin
The previous installment, A Dance with Dragons, covered less story than Martin intended, omitting at least one planned large battle sequence and leaving several character threads ending in cliffhangers. Martin intends to resolve these cliffhangers “very early” in The Winds of Winter, saying “I’m going to open with the two big battles that I was building up to, the battle in the ice and the battle at Meereen—the battle of Slaver’s Bay. And then take it from there.”
Expected publication: Second half of 2017
(You’ll see this book again next year, I think.)
