New year, new books! I know it is almost March already (!!), but I have been wanting to do a post on my most anticipated books of 2018 for a while and here it finally is! These are almost all books that haven't yet been released, but I can't wait until they are! Are some of these on your TBR as well? Which books are you most excited for in 2018?
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
I really loved Novik's Uprooted and am excited for this book!
Legendary by Stephanie Garber
Though I wasn't crazy about Caraval, the first book in this series, i did enjoy it and am curious to see how it will continue.
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
A lot of hype has surrounded this book and I just got my copy from the library, so I hope it lives up to expectations.
Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
Albertalli is another author whose books I have enjoyed for the realistic characters and engaging stories.
Toil and Trouble by Tess Sharpe
I don't often read story collections, but this one sounds really fun and clever!
Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris
Paris is a clever author of twisty thrillers like the page-turner Behind Closed Doors. I am really excited to see how this one turns out and if it lives up to her previous novels.
Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser
This book is being compared to Big Little Lies, which can e good and bad, because I really enjoyed that book and my expectations for this one are maybe a little higher than they should be. Very curious to read this soon.
Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha
I hope this book is more than just a clever title, but it does sound pretty intriguing and I am definitely interested in a story set, in part, in India, which I visited for the first time a few months ago.
The Window by Amelia Brunskill
The Widow sounds like a really gripping thriller by a debut author, and I am trying to read more new authors this year.
Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage
This books sounds strange and a little creepy, with a lot of praise surrounding it.
Impossible Saints by Clarissa Harwood
I might have judged this book by it's cover . . . but I am just as curious to see what is inside as the outside:-)
The Room on the Rue Amèlie by Kristin Harmel
Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres, and I have heard a lot of good things about this book already.
Circe by Madeline Miller
If there there are three books I want to read this year, Circe is on that list. I loved Miller's Song of Achilles and this one has been years in the making. Cannot wait!
Educated by Tara Westover
I don't read much nonfiction, however Educated caught my eye when I first read about it months ago and it is being compared to books like The Glass Castle by Jeannette Wallis.
The Largesse of the Sea Maiden by Denis Johnson
If the title is not intriguing enough, this collection of stories is being called "the highest-caliber work of an American master".
Lethal White by Robert Galbraith
By now we all know Robert Galbraith is no other than J.K. Rowling. I have read all the other Cormoran Strike mysteries and am really excited to see how the story continues and the characters develop.
