2018 YA Book Releases I Can’t Wait to Read!

It’s really crazy to believe that 2017 is coming to a close! However, a new year means new book releases, and 2018 just so happens to have some wonderful new releases! Many of these books are part of favorite book series or are by favorite authors. This list doesn’t include all of the debut books I am interested in…mostly because I haven’t had a chance to do that much research on them yet!

Series/Fav. Author Novels

Queen of Air and Darkness (The Dark Artifices, #3)                   A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3.5)

Queen of Air and Darkness–Dec. 4: This book is hands down my most anticipated of 2018. This past summer I absolutely devoured Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows. This series may be my favorite of Cassie’s or is at least very close to Infernal Devices. Plus that ending of Lord of Shadows!!! I need answers…too bad I have to wait until next December for them (better than the initial 2019 release date though)!

A Court of Frost and Starlight–May. 1: I’m very excited to see how this bridge between the original series and the spinoff stories works out. It is a shorter book (247 pages) but is narrated by both Feyre and Rhysand. ACOTAR is another one of my favorite series and I am glad that I will be seeing more of some of my favorite characters again!

Save the Date                        The Burning Maze (The Trials of Apollo, #3)

Save the Date—June 5: Morgan Matson is hands down my favorite contemporary author. It’s gotten to the point where I will literally buy anything she puts out, no questions asked. This book sounds very summer-y and there’s a WEDDING. I’m glad it’s coming out early June…it’ll be a great way to kick off Summer!

The Burning Maze—May 1: Now I know Rick Riordan isn’t exactly considered YA but I know so many people that read it anyway. I actually haven’t read the 2nd book in this series yet, but I did that so I wouldn’t have to wait so long for this book! No matter how old I get, I will always love coming back to this Greek Mythology world (especially when I get to revisit old characters like Percy and Annabeth).

Debut Novels

You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone               Where I Live           The Calculus of Change

You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone–Jan. 2: One of my goals for 2018 is to read some books with more diverse representation, and this novel showcases a Jewish family. It deals with Huntington’s disease and family/sister relationships and just sounds like it will be a great read.

Where I Live–Feb. 27: This book explores teen poverty and homelessness and main character Linden Rose lives at her high school. This book makes me nervous because I feel like it can be a major hit or a big flop, depending on how they deal with the magnitude of the heavy themes. I’m very excited to see how this one plays out!

The Calculus of Change–Feb. 27: Although it has ~math~ on the cover, I’m willing to look past it (lol). This one deals with a lot of teen issues and seems like it will feature an adorable romance, which I completely here for.

Well here’s my list so far! I haven’t looked too much into debut novels (especially fantasy ones) but these are the 3 catching my attention so far. What are your most anticipated books of 2018?

December 29: Most Anticipated Releases for 1st Half of 2016

This Top Ten Tuesday came just in time! I was already planning a post out for this, because guys, there are a TON of releases I am looking forward to! This may be one of the first times I have more than 10 answers. So many great books to look forward to in 2016. These are in order according to month.

*EDIT- After looking at this completed post, I realized I am lacking so many Fantasy novels. This is almost all contemporary! I may have another list of fantasy novels later on…

January 

Passenger (Passenger, #1) Bookishly Ever After (Ever After, #1) The Year We Fell Apart

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (Jan. 5th)

Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira (Jan. 12th)

The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin (Jan. 26th)

January holds two of the books I have been waiting for the longest- Passenger and Bookishly Ever After. Alexandra Bracken stole my heart with The Darkest Minds, and I can’t wait to see her new book! This is Isabel’s first book, but it reminds me a bit of Fangirl, and I am extremely excited!

february

Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles #0.5, 0.6, 1.5, 3.1, 3.6)   The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire, #1)

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer (Feb. 2nd)

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine (Feb. 16th)

Looks like February is the month of Fairytale Retellings! You all know my unhealthy obsession with The Lunar Chronicles, so obviously I am stoked for this bind up of short stories. The Shadow Queen was found by the Once Upon a Time  fan in me, and I’m looking forward to this Snow White story.

 

March

The Girl Who Fell A Tyranny of Petticoats Raelia (The Medoran Chronicles, #2) This Is Where the World Ends

The Girl Who Fell by S.M. Parker (March 1st)

Tyranny of Petticoats by Multiple Authors (March 8th)

This is Where the World Ends by Amy Zhang (March 22nd)

Raelia by Lynette Noni (March 23rd) 

So many releases in March! The main book I want my hands is Raelia, the second book in the Medorian Chronicles. I have raved about Noni’s Akarnae several times on this blog, and I can’t wait to see Alex’s next adventure! A Tyranny of Petticoats looks like it will be a promising bind-up of heroine short stories, and the author line up looks pretty great. I just bought the book Falling into Places by Amy Zhang, so I’m hoping to read her other book as well.

April

When We Collided Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here

When We Collided by Emery Lord (April 5th)

Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here by Anna Breslaw(April 19th) 

I’m a bit hesitant about When We Collided, but I still think I want to give it a try. Now Scarlett Epstein sounds amazing! This is one of the several fandom related books coming out this year, and follows a fanfiction writer that is distraught over the cancellation of her favorite tv show.

May

The Way Back to You The Unexpected Everything The Crown (The Selection, #5)

The Way Back to You by Michelle Andreani and Mindi Scott (May 3rd)

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson (May 3rd)

The Crown by Kiera Cass (May 3rd)

ALL OF THESE COME OUT ON THE SAME DAY. After reading Since You’ve Been Gone last summer, I have been anxiously awaiting Matson to release a new book. Just look at the cover, it screams fun and summer! And of course, The Crown is the final (for real this time)book in The Selection series, and it will be interesting to see who Edalyn chooses.

 

June

Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories

Summer Days & Summer Nights by Multiple Authors (June 14th)

This is just like the book My True Love Gave to Me, but a summer edition! I’m pretty excited to read Roth and Clare’s stories,  because I haven’t read anything that was contemporary from these authors. Summer Days and Summer Nights looks like a perfect book to read outside by the pool!

 

There you have it, some of my most anticipated releases. There are quite a few on this list that I would consider “must buys on the day they are released,” so that’s exciting. I’m sure a few of these will remain on my TBR for a while, but I hope to get to them all eventually!

2015 Most Anticipated Books (Jan-June) PART 1

I finally made up my list of the most anticipated books of 2015. Of course there are many great books that people are looking forward to that are coming out in 2015, so I narrowed it down to the 1st half of the year (January-June). However I found 16 total books, and I am breaking it into 4 posts. I am doing this so

JANUARY

Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall  (Jan 13)

This story takes place in a future dystopia, where there is a very powerful secret society called the Circle. This society believes that Avery is the key to an old prophecy and that she can fix everything. Avery must unravel the mystery by traveling all over with two boys in the Circle by finding clues. However after time, it is evident that these clues could possibly start World War 3. Not only that, but the boys hold some secrets of their own as well. Avery has a huge decision; chose the boy that will help her save the world, or choose the boy she is falling in love with?

Fairest by Marissa Meyer  (Jan 27)

This is a bridge story between Cress and Winter by Marissa Meyer. So far, all we know about Queen Levana is how she uses her ‘glamour’ to gain power over people. That is, until now. Meyer has finally written the story of Queen Levana and it is definitely a must-read for fans of the series. Not only that, but there is a 3 chapter Winter excerpt in the back, so that makes it even better.

I Was Here by Gayle Forman   (Jan 27)

Cody thought she knew everything about her best friend Meg. However, after Meg commits suicide in a hotel room, Cody is left to find the answers. Everything she thought she knew about her is gone and she discovers many things her ‘best friend’ never told her about. Like her room mates, Ben McAllister, and the secret computer file. This is a great book for fans of other Gayle Forman books.

 

FEBRUARY

A very anticipated debut novel that is set in a world that is divided by blood. Literally. There are the silver-blooded people that have special powers and rule the world. Then there are the red-blooded, which is the majority, who spend their life serving the Silvers. However, everything is turned around when Mare, a seventeen year old Red, has powers that can overturn the whole system. I have a whole post that explains more about this highly anticipated book here.

This is the final book in Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series. Syndey and Adrian’s secret romance is discovered and now the Alchemists and the Moroi are mad. In this epic finale, someone they both care for is in danger, and Syndey risks everything to hunt down the enemy.

That is until Preston never came home. Now, all signs point to Max as the murderer. Will he be able to find the true killer before he is swept into jail?

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

By now, you have probably seen this cover at least once…

Everywhere I have looked lately, Red Queen has popped up somehow. This is a new book from the debut author Victoria Aveyard, and it is on everyone’s TBR list. If you don’t know much about Red Queen, here is all the infromation I have gathered about the story.

– It is set in a place where there are two kinds of people; people with red blood and people with silver blood.

– The silver blooded people rule the kingdom. Since they have silver blood, they have these really cool and unique powers, and get to live a nice lifestyle.

– The red blood people essentially live to serve the silver blood people.

– The main character Mare has a really special power, but she is not a silver blood.

– The king obviously doesn’t want anyone to know about Mare, since she has the power to take down all the silver blooded people.

I am really excited to read this book, because I am very interested to see how the story pans out. This is the first book of the Red Queen Trilogy, and it will come out on February 10…..

 

However, if you really don’t want to wait, you could check out the first 7 chapters! EpicReads has posted the chapters and I know I definitely will be reading them soon. But beware, because you might not want to stop after the end of the 7th chapter and will have to wait another two weeks!
