Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'm Looking Forward to In 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup of book bloggers hosted by The Broke and The Bookish! These tend to be my hardest topics to do, the ones that are about looking forward to future releases, because I read so much backlist. But even I have some releases I'm particularly looking forward to...I'm highlighting mostly books I've been fortunate enough to get an advance reader's copy of!



The Winter of the Witch: This is easily my #1 most anticipating. I loved the first two books of Katherine Arden's Winternight trilogy and can not WAIT to get my hands on the third!

The Immortalists: This book is about what happens when four children are told the dates of their deaths by a fortune teller, and how they go on and live their lives. It sounds exactly up my alley, honestly.

This Could Hurt: Having had a bad workplace environment in the past, one of the things I appreciate most about my job is the fantastic people I work with. This story about a group of people linked by their workplace sounds super interesting.

The Sky Is Yours: Dystopias always pique my interest, and then add in dragons and I'm definitely excited to read it!

Sophia of Silicon Valley: It sounds pretty much like The Devil Wears Prada in the tech world, which is intriguing.

Court Justice: My husband (and I'm sure many other sports-video-game players) misses the NCAA football series, which he always bought every year. This book tells the story of Ed O'Bannon's lawsuit against the NCAA for licensing the images of players, which is what put a stop to it, and I'm curious to hear about his story.

All The Castles Burned: I've always got my eye out for books about boarding school drama.

Chosen Country: I think most people don't appreciate how rural Nevada actually is because they think about Las Vegas and sometimes Reno, but that changed at least briefly when the Bundy case made the news, and this book is about that case as well as the changing face of the West, so it sounds very attuned to my particular interests.

The Red Word: Sexual assault on college campuses is something we've all become increasingly aware of, and this book examines the issue through the story of a young woman caught between a group of feminists and a fraternity.

Girls Burn Brighter: Books about female friendship, especially through tough circumstances, have an undeniable appeal to me.

  1. That book on Bundy sounds interesting! The publicist' blurb mentions Ed Abbey, which always helps.

  2. Girls Burn Brighter sounds really interesting! Books about (female) friendship always appeal to me too. I've never heard of Sophia of Silicon Valley before, but it seems incredible? Definitely going on my to-read list. Wonderful list :)
