Top Ten Tuesday: Anticipated Books of 2018

Happy Tuesday!! The new year is right around the corner, which means that it’s time to start thinking about the new books that will hit the shelves in 2018. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic highlights books we’re anticipating in 2018 and I’ve decided to focus specifically on new releases. I’m awful at keeping up with new releases in general, so making this list will force me to actually do some research about books coming out next year. Without further ado, here are some new releases that I’m anticipating for 2018: 

Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

A young adult science fiction novel to be released on January 9, 2018…. the duo that brought us These Broken Stars is back! I’m eager to see how this one measures up to their past collaborations!

Americanized by Sara Saedi

The memoir of an undocumented teenager from Iran growing up in the United States to be released on February 6, 2018. I’m eager to read a memoir from such an interesting and important perspective. Being a teenager is hard enough, never mind with the added challenge of an undocumented status!

Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman

A young adult fantasy novel to be published on February 27, 2018. I really enjoyed Hartman’s novel Seraphina, so I’m excited to see where she takes readers in her fictional kingdom of Goredd this time. ( Fingers crossed there are still dragons!)

Laura & Emma by Kate Greathead

The story of a single mother raising her daughter in the Upper East Side of New York City in the 1980s. Structured as a series of vignettes, this novel is set to be released on March 13, 2018.

Let’s No One Get Hurt by Jon Pineda

A Souther Gothic bildungsroman (AKA my ideal fiction combination) to be released on March 20, 2018. The synopsis of this novel is unlike anything I’ve ever read… this is definitely going to be near the top of my 2018 TBR list!

My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan

A romance novel about an American studying English literature at Oxford to be released on April 24, 2018. What better time to read this than when I’m actually studying abroad at Oxford?

They Come in All Colors by Malcolm Hansen

The story of a biracial boy growing up in the sixties and seventies to be released on May 29, 2018. Filled with racial and regional tensions, this novel seems like an important reminder that these conflicts of the past still haunt us today.

I’ve only managed to come up with seven new releases, mostly because it’s too early to know much about what will be released in the latter half of the year. Nevertheless, these seven novels sound like ones that I’ll really enjoy!

What new 2018 releases are you highly anticipating? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. I didn’t know about any of these. Personally I haven’t been anticipating anything except one Indian mythology book which is part of a series here. But that’s it.

  2. Unearthed sounds good, I am also eager to read that one someday, as well as Tess on the Road. I love this cover so much and the story sounds quite interesting! 😀
    Great choices for this week, Holly 🙂

      1. The whole series is wonderful, I heartily recommend all 3 books! I first read “The Shadow of the Wind”, it was a good start to discover Zafon’s style 🙂 But you can start with any book of the series, as they’re not much related one to another – there are common elements, but each book has its own story.

        I wrote a post about the series, if you’re interested to find out more about it:

  3. I am anticipating so very many books in 2018. Seriously, I think there are at least 12 January releases I’m planning on getting and I think February is also pretty close to that number. It’s looking like 2018 is going to be great for readers.

      1. My wallet will likely not be happy with me. Thank goodness I have some Christmas gift cards to help with getting some of the books. Well, those gift cards and the lucky fortune of receiving some of them from NetGalley already.
