Hey Everyone! So normally I do the Top Ten Tuesday prompt that appears on The Artsy Reader Girl, however this week’s is ‘Top Ten Books I’m No Longer Interested in Reading.’ I had a good long think about this and could come up with two books, so I’ve picked something completely different instead! I did do a post of 2018 books that I’m looking forward to at the end of 2017, but the majority of them were sequels to books I’d loved throughout the year, so this is my top 10 new books coming out in 2018!
1. The Queens of Innis Lear – Tessa Gratton
A KINGDOM AT RISK, A CROWN DIVIDED, A FAMILY DRENCHED IN BLOOD.
This fantasy retelling of King Lear sounds just fantastic. The synopsis had me hooked right from the start and I am just dying to read it.
Coming May 17th from HarperVoyager UK, read the full synopsis on Goodreads.
2. Witchsign – Den Patrick
Another new fantasy series from HarperVoyager, this is the first in the series from The Boy with the Porcelain Blade author Den Patrick. I loved the Erebus Sequence and I’m dying to read this one. Full of dragons and magic, it sounds like a must read.
Coming May 22nd from HarperVoyager UK, read the full synopsis on Goodreads.
3. The Poppy War – R. F. Kuang
I swear not every book on this list is coming from HarperVoyager, but this is another one that I am definitely looking forward to. I’ve already seen people talking about it online and it sounds like such a gripping read with a kick ass protagonist.
Coming May 1st from HarperVoyager UK, read the full synopsis on Goodreads.
4. Starfish – Akemi Dawn Bowman
I don’t read an awful lot of comtemporary YA and that is something I definitely want to rectify. As soon as I heard about book I added it to my wishlist. It sounds like a really fascinating look into mental health and I was lucky enough to be asked to be on the blog tour for this, so stay tuned for that coming new month!
Coming April 5th from Ink Road. Read the full synopsis on Goodreads.
5. The Smoke Thieves – Sally Green
A princess, a traitor, a hunter and a thief. Four teenagers with the fate of the world in their hands. Four nations destined for conflict
I have a confession to make in that I’ve never read a book by Sally Green. I know plenty of people rave about her books but I haven’t gotten around to picking up the Half Bad series. When I read about this book I jumped at the chance to receive an e-ARC and I’m hoping reading this beauty will be the kick I need to pick up Sally Green’s other books.
Coming May 3rd from Penguin UK. Read the fully synopsis on Goodreads.
6. Ace of Shades – Amanda Foody
Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.
I bought a copy of Daughter of the Burning City at YALC last year but I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it and this series sounds just as amazing.
Coming May 17th 2018 from HQ Young Adult, read the full synopsis on Goodreads.
7. Furyborn – Claire Legrand
This book caught my attention a little while ago and I thought it sounded like an absolutely stunning read. I’ve seen it described as one of the most original fantasy series of 2018 and I can’t wait to read it. I was so over the moon when I found an ARC copy of this in one of my Fairyloot boxes, it is near the top of my TBR now and I’m really looking forward to it.
Coming May 22nd 2018 from Sourcebooks Fire, read the full synopsis on Goodreads.
8. Ash Princess – Laura Sebastian
I must admit I saw this on Goodreads and was completely sucked in by that cover. It looks beautiful and after reading the synopsis it sounds like a fantastic read. I have seen some mixed reviews about this one already, but I’m looking forward to picking it up and forming my own opinion!
Coming June 14th from Pan MacMillan, read the full synopsis on Goodreads.
9. Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared.
I know this one is probably on everyone’s list of anticipated releases, but it just sounds unputdownable. The lovely folks at My Kinda Book have sent me a review copy, and I am planning to dive into it this week!
Coming March 8th from Pan Macmillan, read the full synopsis on Goodreads
10. The Traitor’s Game – Jennifer A. Nielsen
I haven’t heard too much about this book so far but I saw someone mention it on Twitter and thought it sounded like an excellent read. I haven’t read The False Prince series but I am definitely tempted to pick up both and have a binge read!
Coming February 27th 2018 from Scholastic, read the full synopsis on Goodreads.
