2018 Releases I’m Looking Forward To: Part 1

2018 is looking to be a great year for new releases. I can’t remember feeling this excited about 2017’s prospects (although that might have been because I wasn’t really paying attention) but this year I am SO. DAMN EXCITED. About everything! All the books! I’ve had to split this post up because there are so many books that I want to mention. Which 2018 releases are you looking forward to? Have you read any already? Which ones should be at the top of my wishlist?

2018 releases 1

  1. Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

The Illuminae Files finale is hopefully going to be just as good as Gemina, if not better. I was on the fence about Illuminae, but Gemina made me really excited for the final book in the series. And I need more books that are written in this style!

  1. Hero At The Fall by Alwyn Hamilton

Another series that I am loving is wrapping up next year. I can’t wait to see what the gang gets up to in this one, and how everything is going to be sorted out! I love this fantasy series so much.

  1. A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena

This is about a girl from Saudi Arabia called Zarin who dies in a car crash in Jeddah. Her story is told from various points of view, by the people who gossiped about her and those who have heard said gossip. I imagine this is going to be a powerful read!

2018 releases 2

  1. Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp

I loved Marieke Nijkamp’s debut, This Is Where It Ends, so I absolutely HAVE to read this one. This is about a girl whose best friend dies, and who is then pushed away by her community.

  1. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Children of Blood and Bone is a fantasy set in the magical land of Orïsha. It’s based on African folklore, and I am dying to get my hands on it.

2018 releases 3

  1. American Panda by Gloria Chao

The main character, Mei, is Taiwanese-American and is about to start as a freshman at MIT. The thing is, Mei is to study medicine, but she hates germs and biology lectures. I think this one sounds hilarious!

  1. Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely

To be honest, I just really like the title and cover of this one. In Gunslinger Girl, the USA has been broken up after another Civil War, and the main character sounds like a bamf.

  1. Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

LGBT, necromancers, fantasy… This sounds amazing.

    I’m looking forward to so many of these, but Obsidio is topping my list too I think! :)
