Yay! It’s my favorite week of each season – a week of posts about the upcoming new releases that I’m excited about!!

    I have had the privilege of advance reading “Looking Glass Lies” by Varina Denman, so I am excited for others to have the experience of absorbing the truths permeating through-out this gutsy, deeply redeeming story.

    Definitely looking forward to the releases by Liz Johnson, Becky Wade, Denise Hunter, Victoria Bylin, Ruth Logan Herne, Sarah Monzon, Susan May Warren,Courtney Walsh, Kara Isaac . . . . but a newer author, to me at least . . .. that so impressed me . . Tammy Gray. Plus, Toni Shiloh and Teresa Tysinger . . . oh, I see what you mean!

  2. Winnie Thomas

    My answer to your question as to which books I’m most looking forward to from May to August is: all of the above. I think Nicole Deese is supposed to have one in August. I’m looking forward to hers.

    • Carrie

      i had her on the list but when I went to put the post together, it looks like it’s coming out in September instead!

      • Winnie Thomas

        I was wondering about that, Carrie. I guess we’ll have enough to keep us busy until September, though! 😀

  3. Suzie Waltner

    So many of these!! Hilary Manton Lodge’s new one looks like it’s right up my alley and really looking forward to Kara Isaac’s new one.

  4. Teresa Tysinger

    Wow, there are so many awesome titles coming out. So many books, so little time! And a bug huge HIGH-GIVE thanks for including Someplace Familiar. 🙂

    • Carrie

      I’m SO EXCITED for Someplace Familiar!! That whole row has me all a’grin 😀

  5. Carolyn Astfalk

    Amy Matayo has one coming out this summer – The Whys Have It. And as someone mentioned above, Nicole Deese has another coming out too!

    • Carrie

      Nicole’s is showing up as September on Amazon… Heading to track down Amy’s!!!

      • Winnie Thomas

        Amy said last week that it was set for “late May” and she had a title but no cover yet. I haven’t heard anything else.

  6. Kay Garrett

    How do you decide? They all sound amazing and I’d love to read them all.

  7. Susan Dyer

    Grrrrr!!! I need more paper!! Hahahaha

    Now, where the check is my pen??

    Great list! My TBR just exploded and it’s only the first day!!??

  8. Toni Shiloh

    May’s going to be epic. I may have to take a writing break just to dive in the book world. Oh and Hillary Manton Lodge and Courtney Walsh’s books look fantastic! And how did I miss that Victoria Bylin had a new one coming?! *goes to add to TBR pile*

    Thanks for including mine! I’m in such good company. 🙂

  9. Paula S.

    Jane of Austin and Freedom’s Ring because I’m really more interested in historicals. So I like the historical connection of these two books.

  10. Courtney

    These posts are my favorite! All those covers are like gifts under the tree waiting to be unwrapped! I have been a long time fan of Wade, Deese, Matayo, and Gray. Thanks to your blog I have recently enjoyed books by Bylin and Monzon. Several of these others will get added to my list, too!

  11. Tracey Hagwood

    I have a lot of the same books on my “coming in 2017 list” so I’ll just add one not on your list.

    *THE WRITING DESK by Rachel Hauck out in July. I read an arc and I believe it’s going to make all the BEST Books of 2017 lists. LOVED IT! It falls into both the contemporary and the historical categories, but it starts in modern day so I’m adding it here.

    • Carrie

      ah yes!! I stuck that one in historical, for some reason. But I’m most DEFINITELY looking forward to it!

  12. Nancy M

    So as I was scrolling I’m thinking yes! Excellent choices. Then more books appeared and I go back. That was just May? Oh dear! Must read faster! ? Bring it on summer! Yay for great authors and books and friends and their debuts!

  13. carylkane

    Look at ALL those lovelies!!!!!! Summer reading is sizzling! 😉

  14. Linda

    So many great books coming! I think Melissa Tagg has one coming in August – the final Walker family story.

  15. Jill Kemerer

    I’m excited about so many books on your list, too! And there were quite a few here I didn’t realize were releasing! Thank you!!

  16. Rissi

    My favorite genre. How to choose!? Excited for Melissa’s, Hillary’s, Becky’s and the novella collection “Right Where We Belong” sounds super cute, too. 🙂
