2018 YA Releases That We’re All Excited For!! (ft. me throwing a lot of books at your TBR)

So it’s nearly 2018 and holy socks, there are some delicious books coming for our souls in the new year.

They are here to claim our hearts, make us swoon in appreciation and live in gingerbread house built of our pain and anguish. WHICH IS EXACTLY why I’m a bookworm. BECAUSE I WANT THESE EMOTIONS OKAY?!

And looking at 2018 books? I AM SO FREAKING PUMPED. So many good books and just UGH. Can I just have all these books right now? And then procrastinate reading them until 3045? Because that would be simply wonderful. 

NOTE: I’m going to be doing up to June releases, so like the Fast half of 2018 since after that not many book releases have been confirmed/announced. Click on the links to go the Goodreads page and add to your TBR! You know you love me.

JANUARY

The Hazel WoodThe Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1)Reign of the FallenEverless (Untitled #1)

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert – I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK! It sounds dark and twisty and perfect and I shall ignore all negative reviews for now (there are a LOT on Goodreads. why) and I shall trust my friends who have told me this is fabulous.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black – I have never read anything by this author? BUT it sounds super cool and interesting and adventurous + I love the cover.

Reign of the Fallen by S.G Marsh – There is SO much hype for this book and I am excited about an extremely diverse fantasy! LIKE YAS.

Everless by Sara Holland – So I’m going to be getting this from a book trade and I am so excited. I mean time is a currency? SIGN ME THE HECK UP!

Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons, #2)Unearthed (Unearthed, #1)Reign the Earth (The Elementae, #1)A Conspiracy of Stars

Batman Nightwalker by Marie Lu – Mare Lu is one of my favourite authors and I can’t WAIT to dive into my ARC of this superhero novel!

Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner – so this is co-authored and while I was disappointed by Illuminae, this sci-fi sounds super epic!

Reign the Earth by A.C Gaughen – I’m not even sure what this is about but I really like the cover. So, I think that counts for something.

A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A. Cole -So this is about nature and animals and is giving me a dystopia vibe plus I actually ADORE the cover and no, I don’t just care about the covers but YOU HAVE TO ADMIT, it’s pure beauty.

You'll Miss Me When I'm GoneThe Sacrifice BoxNice Try, Jane SinnerLove, Hate & Other Filters

You’ll Miss Me When I’m gone by Rachel Solomon – This sounds like a really serious contemporary and there is a Jewish main character so OBVIOUSLY EXCITEMENT!

The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart – This is a book that takes place in the 1900s? I think and it’s a thriller/horror and basically stranger things, so all the yes!

Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianna Oelke – This is about a college student and apparently, it has super important discussions about depression and mental illness so I’m looking forward to this.

Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed – While I didn’t enjoy this book THAT much I think it was quite important in terms of Islamaphobia and should be on your radar!
February

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton – This author SLAYS it on twitter and the premise of this book is FANTASTIC!

Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller – I haven’t read the first book but it’s on my shelf so that counts, right?

The Queens Rising by Rebecca Ross – This sounds like a super awesome fantasy plus it has “queen” in the title so I’m already drooling.

Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston – This is one of those books I’m not sure what itis about but everyone else is excited about it SO I AM EXCITED ABOUT IT.

Honor Among Thieves (The Honors, #1)Ink, Iron, and Glass (Ink, Iron, and Glass, #1)A Girl Like ThatTess of the Road

Honour Among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguiref – No idea who Ann is BUT RACHEL CAINE IS MY FAVE and this looks sooo much fun.

ObsidioAGAIN! I didn’t like the first book that much, haven’t read Gemina and so not really excited for this? BUT OTHER PEOPLE ARE.

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo – This is by a book blogger and I got accepted for an ARC and it looks so good omigosh.

Picture Us In The Light by Kelly Gilbert- This sounds like al-secrets-unravel-in-my-family kind of story and I am really hoping this is good.

Beyond A Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake – I MEAN there’s a crow on the cover? what more could you ask for?

Sky in The Deep by Adrienne Young – This looks like a bad-ass book and I want to read so much.

A Thousand Perfect Notes

A Thousand Perfect Notes by Cait @ Paper Fury – I WILL ALWAYS THINK OF CAIT AS BLOGGER?! And not “CG DREWS”. I think we can safely say that THIS IS THE BOOK WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR. I admit It’s a contemporary but I trust that Cait will, you know, make me cry weep and fall completely in love. I don’t think this one will disappoint me and I JUST CANNOT WAIT. Someone give me an early copy. Please? OR LIKE THE COVER. Gosh, I feel like the cover will be shown to us in February? this is just a prediction guys.

  1. I’m honestly so glad that so many of these were already on my TBR because otherwise, it might have exploded from all of the books you’ve mentioned here! My Goodreads shelves for January and February are basically so full of exciting new releases that I have no idea when I’m supposed to get to them all. But oh well, we’ll do our best right???

    Hmm, what am I most excited about? Ace Of Shades is definitely up there as it’s inspired in part by Six Of Crows and I love that duology with all my heart! Furyborn looks SO great coverwise that I am intrigued just by that but I keep hearing fantastic things about it too, so I have high hopes!

      1. I recently reorganized my books a little bit and then marked all the unread ones with a little bit of washi tape and I have to say, I am disappointed in myself because there are quite a few. I seriously need to either read them or sell them.

        OH MY GOD IF ACE OF SHADES DISAPPOINTS I’M GOING TO BE SO SAD.

      2. 20% of my bookshelf is read books and 80% of my bookshelf — IS PHYSICAL TBR!! I definitely want to change that in 2018.

        NO ACE OF SHADES SHALL NOT DIAPPOINT OTHERWISE I WILL HAVE TO…DOING SOMETHING DRASTIC?!

  2. Welp looks like you posted so I must obviously drop anything I was doing with my life and read…#priorities.

    AND I SWEAR YOU ALL WANT TO MURDER ME WITH THESE LISTS. LIKE HONESTLY JUST STRAIGHT UP PLANNING MY MURDER. I would’ve prefered a gentle sabbing not death my TBR thank you very much. I am still trying (!! and failing miserably!!somehow!!) to read 2017 releases! Because why be a good bookdragon blogger when you can not and scream instead. My new hobby. EXCITING. This is fine.

    Ok now I’m adding books to my tbr shelf on goodreads while crying I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY.

    And ashjakal Cait’s book!! SO EXCITING!! I NEED IT!! I know it’ll make me cry and fall in love and I am so here for itttt. If it doesn’t have food (I heard it has!!) I am suing for false advertisment (you can’t just buy my trust with cake and then betray me). And I like how it has it’s very on category on the list because yes it deserves all of the screaming.

  8. 2018 IS THE YEAR TO BE A YA BOOK-LOVER BECAUSE THE RELEASES LOOK SO EPIC!

I HAVE AN ARC FOR A GIRL LIKE THAT OMG I CAN’T FREAKING WAIT TO READ IT! AND I DIDN’T KNOW TO KILL A KINGDOM WAS WRITTEN BY A FELLOW BLOGGER!! AHH!

    1. OMG WHAT WHAT YOU HAVE AN ARC OF A GIRL LIKE THAT OMG OMG OMG O. M. G Sorry I JUST CANNOT WAIT FOR THAT ONE Ace of Shades is GENUINELY on of my most anticipated. But Furyborn is like “EVERYONE ELSE IS EXCITED SO I MIGHT AS WELL BE TOO” plus the cover is actually gorgeoous. And yeah? I think to kill a kingdom IS written by a book blogger BUT maybe I am not remembering correctly?

    Cait’s book is definitely one of my most anticipated releases this year, as well as Leah on the Offbeat! Although what do you mean you haven’t read anything else by her?! Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is AMAZING, and you absolutely need to read it!
