I post a list of my most anticipated book releases at the beginning of each month. That doesn’t mean, however, that I have read all of those books. Here are just a handful of 2018 releases I didn’t get to, but am certainly still keen to read!
Though there’s one month left in 2018, I already know I won’t be able to pick up these titles. I already posted my December TBR and don’t want to read over 100 books this year: it’s such a perfect number to end my reading challenge with!
Fire and Blood – a prequel to the a Song of Ice and Fire series – was released only a few weeks ago, so it’s okay I haven’t read it yet. It’s so expensive though, and I hope it’s one of the presents Santa brings me this year! Perhaps I’ll pick up the audiobook in the meantime.
Though it was on my November TBR, I haven’t read What If It’s Us yet. Considering I already decided which books I’ll pick up in December, I’ll have to read this novel next year instead. While I am curious to see whether this is going to be as disappointing as Leah on the Offbeat, I’m not too keen anymore to pick this up ASAP because this doesn’t really seem like a winter-y read.
I read my first Alice Oseman novel this year, Radio Silence, and I absolutely loved it! I’ve been meaning to pick up her other work ever since, but haven’t yet.
When I read The Song of Achilles several years ago, it instantly became one of my favourite books! I’ve been meaning to re-read it for a while and am glad to see Circe by Madeline Miller has received similar praise.
The Astonishing Color of After is a Young Adult magical realism novel, which is honestly quite intimidating. I often don’t understand themes that are explored in magical realism, literary fiction and poetry, which is really unfortunate, as I desperately want to love these genres! That said, I won’t let that stop me from picking up this beautiful book.
Let’s Talk about Love is one of those books I’ve been meaning to read for AGES, but somehow still haven’t picked up yet! Though I usually don’t tend to be interested in books about romance, this novel is certainly going to be different and more relatable: the protagonist Alice is biromantic asexual.
I don’t know much about Nice Try, Jane Sinner, but I nonetheless think I’ll love this book! It explores themes such as depression, which are surely going to break my heart but be relatable at the same time.
I am not a huge fantasy reader, which explains why I haven’t read Reign of the Fallen yet. That said, it has bisexual representation and many of my friends love it, so I am definitely going to give this series a chance.
The release of Tyler Johnson Was Here didn’t receive as much hype as the cover reveal did… I nevertheless bought a copy as I am interested to read more books dealing with police brutality and racism. I hope the story is going to be as good as the cover is!
Despite not being a fan of the Shatter Me series, A Very Large Expanse of Sea was one of my most anticipated 2018 releases! Why haven’t I bought a copy yet?!? I am so keen to read a book about a Muslim girl post-9/11 and based on the reviews it has received, this won’t disappoint!
So here are only a handful of the 2018 releases I haven’t read yet. Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What were your thoughts on them?
