Most Anticipated Reads of 2018
There are so many books in the next year that I'm so excited for, but these ones are at the top of them all. I'll be going in order of publication date, but a couple still don't have one set yet. One is The Iron Season by Helene Wecker, which is the sequel to The Golem and the Jinni. This book follows a Golem who has lost her master and a freed Jinni who meet in New York in the early 1900's. Another is Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor, which is the sequel to my favorite book of 2017, Strange the Dreamer, which follows the librarian Lazlo Strange as he tries to find the lost city of Weep. I also have There Will Be Other Summers by Benjamin Alire Saenz, which is the sequel to my favorite book of all time Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.
Next, I have Thunderhead by Neil Shusterman, which is the sequel to Scythe, which takes place in a futuristic world where no one dies.
Then I have Iron Gold by Pierce Brown, which is the fourth book in the Red Rising Saga which takes place on a futuristic Mars. I have not started this series yet, but my favorite booktuber loves it so I'm getting all of them to read! The fifth book in the series, Dark Age, comes out sometime in September so I can't wait for that too!
Up next is Still Me by Jojo Moyes which follows Louisa Clark after the events to Me Before You and After You.
After that, I have Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller which is the second book in the Daughter of the Pirate King series. This is about a girl who is part pirate and part siren who sails the seas and works for her father, and it's super good!
Following that is Defy the World by Claudia Grey, which is the second book in the Defy the Stars series. This is about the meeting of an android and a rebel, two enemies who become friends, and what comes after that.
Up next is A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas, which is a novella in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. It comes after A Court of Wings and Ruin and follows the lives of Feyre and Rhysand.
After that is The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan which is the third book in the Trial of Apollo series, in which Apollo is turned into a human after he angers his father Zeus, for what though, he isn't sure.
Then we have LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff, which I believe is about a girl in a futuristic world who has the power to destroy machines with her mind. I love the Nevernight Chronicles by him so I'm so excited to see how this is!
Following that is the seventh and final book in the Throne of Glass series and The World of Throne of Glass soon after that. This series follows an orphaned assassin as she tries to survive the wrath of the king of her country, and the other is a guidebook to the series. This is one of my favorite series so I'm so excited, and sad, to see how it all ends!
Around then we also have the third and final book in the Nevernight Chronicles by Jay Kristoff, which also follows an orphaned assassin, but this one seeks the Red Church, a school for assassins where she will learn the art of death and go on to get revenge for those who killed her parents. This does not have a cover reveal yet.
The last one we have on the list is Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare, which is the third and final book in the Dark Artifices Trilogy. This series comes after the Mortal Instruments and follows Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn in the adventures in the Downworld.
That's all I have for next year, although I'm sure I'll have more as the year goes on. I can't wait to get my hands on these books!
