Top Ten Tuesday: My (slightly more than 10) Favorite New Releases of 2017 (so far)

Posted June 27, 2017 by meezcarrie in Christian, Top Ten Tuesday / 44 Comments

I always cringe when these topics pop up in the Top Ten Tuesday loop. Why? Because I can never narrow it down to only 10 books. SO MANY great books have released this year already, so let’s commence with my attempt to focus on my very faves.

As further clarification, I’m helping myself out by limiting to only the books released in 2017, rather than backlists I was reading from. I’m also limiting myself to books I rated as 5 stars. Because otherwise, y’all. We’ll be here all day lol!










And I can’t forget the faves I’ve reviewed for RT Book Reviews!





So… yeah. Slightly Lots more than 10. lol.

What about you? What are some of your favorite reads of 2017 so far?

    Thanks Carrie! Love your lists! I agree totally with the 5 I’ve read. Adding the rest to my TBR.

    Great list Mrs. Carrie. I agree with you on Moonbow Night and True to You. I added the rest to my to-read list. I would have to add Sweetbriar Cottage by Denise Hunter, With You Always by Jody Hedlund and Grace and the Preacher by Kim Vogel Sawyer. Jody Hedlund puts out books faster than I can keep up. Do you know how many will be in the Beacons of Hope series. I need to read 4 and 5.I am looking forward to Lori Benton’s upcoming release too!

    • Carrie

      the Beacons of Hope series is finished, as far as I know 🙁 But at least we have her new series to enjoy!! 😀 And I’ve read Lori’s new one and it is AMAZING!

    So happy to see some of my favorites on your list! And so many on your list that I haven’t read yet and totally have been dying to.

    Some of my recent fave reads – Fatal Mistake by Susan Sleeman, Sweetbriar Cottage by Denise Hunter, A Matter of Trust by Susan May Warren, A Stranger at Fellsworth by Sarah Ladd, The Noble Servant by Melanie Dickerson.

    Great list, Carrie! There are several that I haven’t read yet, so thanks for the recommendations! It was fun to see Shine Like the Dawn on your list!

  5. Whoops! Yep, a few more than 10 there! Better to have too many than too few though. True to You is definitely in my Top 10. Also The Whys Have It by Amy Matayo, Still Life by Dani Pettrey, Turning in Circles by Michelle Buckman, The Firstborn by Quenby Olson, My Unexpected Hope by Tammy Gray, and Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh. Maybe I should do my own post!

    I just read Kara Isaac’s new book, Then There Was You. Loved it!!

  8. Becky Smith

    I’ve read 4 of these, have 3 of them waiting on my kindle, but I want to read most of these!

  9. Gah!!! I’ve read a couple of these but so many remain on my TBR list. I loved A Moonbow Night, but then I love all of Laura Frantz’ books. A couple which made my list are
    The Lost Girl of Astor Street by Stephanie Morrill
    Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig
    Engaged in Trouble (love all of Jenny B Jones’ books)
    The Light in the Garden by Heather Burch
    The Waves Break Grey by Sibella Giorello

    • Carrie

      I’ve read Conspiracy (and loved it) but the others on your list are on my TBR still!! Need more time!! lol

  10. Suzie

    Man, just when I think I’m doing well with keeping up with everything you go and post a bunch of books I haven’t read yet :). #readerproblems

    In addition to several of yours, I’d add the following:

    Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer
    Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano
    Jane of Austin by Hillary Manton Lodge
    Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh
    The Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron
    The Girl Who Could See by Kara Swanson (novella)
    Fatal Mistake by Susan Sleeman
    Beyond Justice by Cara Putnam
    Pursued by Lisa Harris

    • Carrie

      I could say the same about you, my friend LOL. I still need to read all but one on your list 😉

    • Carrie

      I still need to read Rachel’s but I did love Mark of the King (I just read it at the end of last year to review for RT lol)

    • Carrie

      Make sure you get ‘The Orphan’s Tale’ instead of ‘Orphan Train’ – both are good but ‘Tale’ is better!

  11. sarahmonzonwrites

    I knew our math skills were about on par with each other. Hehehe. Some great books here! Honored that AOY is among them.

  12. Lindsay

    I know you said these topics make you cringe, but I love when you post a whole bunch of books because then I either get new books to add to my TBR list, or I can say, “Yes, I loved that one too!” Just wanted to let you know that I look forward to to your post for Top Ten Tuesday every week! 🙂

    • Carrie

      oh Lindsay! Thank you 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoy them. I love making them! Mostly. LOL

  13. Courtney Vorel

    I LOVE this lovely, long list so much! I’ve only read a few on this list so far. It’s so fun to look at all the covers and choose some to add to the top of my TBR pile!!
    I whole-heartedly concur with the Love and Honor choice.
    Your blog is always a bright spot. Thanks for the great post.
