TTT #131 – Books I’m Looking Forward to in the First Half of 2018

Mom-Top Ten

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “Bookish Resolutions/Goals,” and I’ve done this one on my own in my New Year New Me post for 2018. So today I’m going to do a topic I missed towards the end of the year. The topic I chose is “Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2018.” There are so many good books coming out this year, so many that I could make a never ending list. However here are the top ten books I’m looking forward to in 2018. As always, covers/titles link to Goodreads/Blog/Amazon(aff).

Top Ten Twelve Books I’m Looking Forward to in the First Half of 2018

Book Cover for "The Cruel Prince" by Holly BlackBook Cover for "The Dark Calling" by Kresley ColeBook Cover for "Honor Among Thieves" by Rachel Caine and Ann AguirreBook Cover for "Heart of Iron" by Ashley Poston

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (Jan. 2): Technically this book is already out…and I really need to get a copy 😉 I love stories about the Fae and this one in particular intrigues me as it follows a human who was stolen from her family to be raised in the Fae court.

The Dark Calling by Kresley Cole (Feb. 13): This book was actually on my list last year but it didn’t have a release date….it was just me wishing. BUT it has a release day now and I cannot wait to finish the Arcana series. I still need to read book four, but my plan is to just binge them together next month.

Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre (Feb. 13): I love scifi and I love these two authors. I could not be more excited when I heard they were writing a book together. Only a month away 😀

Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston (Feb. 27): Space and androids and a love story? Yes please. In all seriousness, the blurb for this one sounds amazing.

Book Cover for "Ace of Shades" by Amanda FoodyBook Cover for "Ash Princess" by Laura SebastianBook Cover for "Sky in the Deep" by Adrienne YoungBook Cover for "A Court of Frost and Starlight" by Sarah J. Maas

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody (Apr. 10): This book has me intrigued. The blurb makes it sound like it is set in Las Vegas, yet it is a fantasy. I’m really excited to dive into it.

Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian (Apr. 24): I adore fantasy and I am in desperate need of a good fantasy book. This book I hope will be it. The last surviving monarch of a kingdom now ruled by the Kaiser is forced to serve him for her own safety. She’s kept as a prize of war and to show the country he is in control now. Honestly I can’t wait to read this!

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young (Apr. 24): Another fantasy that I’m featuring tomorrow on Waiting on Wednesday. I personally cannot wait for this one. I’m always looking for a good fantasy to disappear into and this one sounds amazing. Plus Viking-inspired….do you really need to know anything else about it?

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas (May 1): Do I really need an explanation for why this one is on the list 😉 ACOTAR is one of my favorite series and somehow I missed the memo that there were going to be more books until I reached the end of A Court of Wings and Ruin and the beautiful page that said the series would continue. Seriously I squealed! I love the world and the characters and I cannot wait to read this one.

Book Cover for "War Storm" by Victoria AveyardBook Cover for "Legendary" by Stephanie GarberBook Cover for "My Plain Jane" by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, Brodi Ashton

War Storm by Victoria Aveyard (May 15): The conclusion of Red Queen. No other explanation needed 😀

Legendary by Stephenie Garber (May 29): Caraval was my favorite debut last year. I loved it. I loved the world, the imagery, the characters. It was perfection. So I have high hopes for this one and cannot wait to dive in.

A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews (June 7): This is not a typical genre for me and everyone that knows me knows it. However I love Cait @ Paperfury and I’ve always said that if she wrote it I would read SO yay!!!! I really can’t wait to read this one.

My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, Brodi Ashton (June 26): My Lade Jane was such a fun read that when I heard the ladies had gotten together to write another and this time about a favorite literary character of mine I couldn’t have been more excited. I cannot wait to read their take of Jane Eyre. It promises to be another fun read.
