Anticipated 2017 YA Releases (Jan. – June)

I’ve always been somewhat aware of book releases. Usually if its a hyped up series or a  popular author’s newest book, I tend to keep it on my radar. However, with the birth of my bookstagram account, and my ever growing book collection, book releases have been like a drug for me. I’m addicted to checking out GoodReads and major book publishing sites to discover what books are up and coming. Reading the synopsis’ make me giddy, and it’s like a workout for my self-control when I deny myself from ordering a pre-sales!  Now don’t call me an enabler, but here are my top releases from January to June, 2017!
