YA New Releases Calendar 2017 (#2)

Hi lovelies! 

I posted these YA release calendars last year, and I've been adding to them, so I thought I'd post the updated versions! I'm now up to June. :-)
As I said before, These are not professional-looking at all, they are just the way I keep track of the book releases each month ^o^. I add new releases as their covers are released, so for example, I am BEYOND excited for The Shaw Chronicles, but I will add it when it gets it's (inevitably) beautiful cover.

Please feel free to download the calendar and add your own most anticipated releases - and please do share! Just add a link back to here please :-)

I've linked them, and also attached them as pictures below. Enjoy!
Please let me know if I'm missing any books, and I'll add them!

Here are the links:

Waiting on Wednesday #2 - Warcross by Marie Lu

 Okay, so the cover for this one was revealed yesterday and I. AM. IN. LOVE 😍

So we all know I love gaming books (Ready Player One is my number one fave book of all time) and Marie Lu is one of my fave authors (I adored her Legend series when I read it several years ago), so this is quickly becoming my most anticipated book of the year. It sounds incredible!

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu—when a game called Warcross takes the world by storm, one girl hacks her way into its dangerous depths.

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

In this sci-fi thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu conjures an immersive, exhilarating world where choosing who to trust may be the biggest gamble of all.

 Hardcover, 416 pages
Expected publication: October 3rd 2017 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
