I love it when this week comes up every season – a week of posts about the upcoming new releases that I’m excited about!! Sadly, I have come to accept that I can’t possibly read them ALL while they are still considered new releases, but that has not stopped me from adding all of these to my TBR pile.
So many fantastic books on the horizon for January-April 2017! I’m switching up the format a bit from how I usually arrange things. Instead of posting a blurb for each book I’m listing, the sheer volume of books on my list this season means I’m going to settle for cover shots and a brief summary at the end of the post. I’m also including, for the first time, all of the Love Inspired and Harlequin Heartwarming releases by category for each month because I really appreciate these imprints (and their commitment to clean romance written with excellence) and there are always so many new-to-me authors in each batch.
If you want to know more about each book, clicking on the covers will take you to that book’s Amazon page.
Here’s the breakdown for the week’s posts:
Today – Contemporary Fiction
Tuesday – Fantasy/YA
Wednesday – Historical Fiction
Thursday – Amish Fiction
Friday – Mystery/Suspense
Saturday – NonFiction
Most books on these lists (with the exception of 1 or 2 each day) are classified as “Christian” or “clean” fiction.

Sarah Monzon and Melissa Tagg hope to have new novels out around April in their Carrington Family and Walker Family series, respectively, and Sally Bradley plans to release her next novel Shelf Life sometime in the spring as well.
Courtney Walsh is also teaming up with 3 other authors for a novella collection in April.
I can’t even begin to pick the ones I’m most excited about from this list – too many fantastic possibilities here! My favorite covers so far? Paws For Love is adorable. The Hideaway makes me want to sit down and rest a spell. The Second Bride grabs my attention and doesn’t let go.
What about you? What contemporary (not Amish or suspense or YA) new releases for the spring are you most looking forward to? Which covers are your faves?
