2016 was an exciting year for the young adult genre.

But 2017 is about to go bigger and better with new adventures from popular YA authors like Veronica Roth and Madeleine Roux, and continuing series from Sarah J. Maas, Victoria Schwab and more. Also, blue is apparently the cover color of 2017, as nearly all of these books share a very similar hue. (We know we'll be blue until these books come out, that's for sure...)

Check out the photo gallery above for the most buzzed-about young adult book releases of 2017, and let us know which ones you’re dying to get your hands on in the comment section below.
