I cannot belive that it is 2018 already!! It seems like 2017 just started a few months ago. With this start of the new year there are so many great books I am looking forward to getting and reading. Here are the first few books that I got in the year 2018.
1) Tess of the Road by: Rachel Hartman
I have yet to read Serafina by this same author which is also set in the same world as this book, but I really wanted to get my hands on a copy of this book so I could read and review it for y’all. I don’t know much about this book other than there are lots of dragons and you cannot go wrong with dragons!
2) Timekeeper by: Tara Sim
I honestly don’t know much about this book. I know it’s set in an alternative London and there are aspects of time that pertain to the story. But this book was a total cover buy for me. It’s so shiny!!
3-6) The Cruel Prince by: Holly Black
I had no idea I would get this many copies of this book. Oops! I preordered the Barnes & Noble edition soon after I traded my ARC just so I would have a copy of the book. Then this book came in my January Fairyloot and Owlcrate. So now I have 3 strikingly beautiful editions of this amazing book! #sorrynotsorry
7) The Cruelty by: Scott Bergstrom
I bought this book because I got an ARC of the second book in this series at Yallfest, but did not have the first one yet. I’m hoping to read and review both of these books for y’all this year.
8) Night of Cake & Puppets by: Laini Taylor
This book is a companion novella to the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. Shame on me for not reading that series yet, but I want to so I can read this novella and look at all the beautiful illustrations!
9) These Rebel Waves by: Sarah Raasch
I swear I hyperventilated when I got this book! Sarah is one of my favorite authors, and I loved her Snow Like Ashes series so freaking much. When I heard she had a new book coming out I just knew I had to get my hands on a copy of it! There are pirates and adventures galore! Y’all have no idea how badly I want to read this book lol.
10) Unearthed by: Amie Kaufman & Meagen Spooner
I got this book in my PageHabit box for the month of January. The box was actually curated by Amie and Maegen so it came with an annotated copy of their book and two other books recommended by them. I really loved the Starbound trilogy by them so I’m really hoping that I like this book as well.
11) The Cage by: Megan Shepherd
This book also came in mt PageHabit box. In this book some people are taken to another planet and kept in a zoo like environment. This book sounds really interesting! I may pick it up soon as I really have want to read some good sci-fi books lately.
12) The Hazel Wood by: Melissa Albert
This book has been on my radar since I heard it was coming out last year. I was so grateful that I was able to get an advanced copy of this book to read! I really enjoyed this book, but it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. My full review on this book will be posted in the next few days.
13) Thunderhead by: Neal Shusterman
For Christmas my lovely boyfriend got me Scythe and I also got a gift card to Barnes & Noble so I knew I just had to pick up a copy of the second book. I cannot wait to get to this series! I’ve heard so many people say really great things about these books and it has my super hyped to read them now.
14) The Radical Element edited by: Jessica Spotswood
I may have just gotten this book because one of my favorite authors has a short story in it. But seriously though, this book is filled with stories from multiple different authors about BA females. It’s just a plus that I get some more Old West writing from Erin Bowman :).
15) Furyborn by: Claire Legrand
HOLY CRAP! I legit cannot believe I have this book in my hands right now! I have been desperately wanting a copy of this book for the longest time and when I found out that it was in the December Fairyloot box, which I had to skip due to financial constraint, I was a little miffed. But thanks to some amazing people on Twitter I ended up getting this book in a trade. This book is massive! I’m sure this is going to be another amazing fantasy novel that I am not going to want to put down.
This was an amazing start to the year book wise! I got so many new books that I cannot wait to read, and there are still so many more that have yet to come out! Here’s to hoping this continues to be an amazing book year for everyone!
