Wow. The last Top Ten Tuesday of 2017. I almost can’t believe that Christmas is over, after weeks of frantic cooking, shopping and decorating, it’s all finished. As many of you will know, Top Ten Tuesday is currently hosted by the people over at The Broke and The Bookish but will soon move to That Artsy Girl.
The theme for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is ‘Top Ten Books I’m looking forward to in 2018’. I have decided to focus on new books being released next year. Note, with so many good books coming out next year, I had to extend this list just slightly (to 11). 🙂
Fat Girl on a Plane, by Kelly daVos. The book, which is told through the perspectives of two girls, one fat and one skinny, looks at fashion, friendship and possibly love,in what I hope is a humorous read. Release date: 05 June 2018.
- Meet Cute: Some People are Destined to Meet, an anthology of short love stories, specifically about how the characters first met, by a variety of authors including Nina LaCour, Emery Lord, Nicola Yoon and many more. I can’t wait to read this one after its release in early January (Jan 5, 2018, to be exact).
- Always Never Yours, by Austin Siegemund-Broka and Emily Wibberley. A modern-day Romeo and Juliet retelling? Yes please! This seems like such a fun read. It will be released on May 22nd.
- A Girl Like That, Tanaz Bhathena. To be released on 27th February, this book seems like the kind of book that everyone should read. With issues surrounding race, religion and identity all explored in the novel, it could end up being a little heavy, but I’m sure it will be interesting nonetheless.
- People Like Us, Dana Mele. I love the sound of this murder mystery novel, which is set in a private girls’ school. Release date: February 27, 2018.
- Now a Major Motion Picture, Cori McCarthy. Said to be “perfect for readers of Fangirl” (according to the book’s Goodreads page), I’m hoping that this is a light and fun read. To be released on April 3rd.
- Where I Live, Brenda Rufener. This is one book that I can’t wait to read in 2018. The book follows a homeless girl forced to live in her high school and seems like a really moving read. Release date: February 27th
- The Cheerleader, Kara Thomas. Hopefully another great murder mystery novel. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one in very late July/early August (the release date is July 31st).
- The Future Will Be BS- Free, Will McIntosh. A very intriguing dystopic novel. The release date is on the 24th of July.
- Love, Hate and Other Filters, by Samira Ahmed. I have a feeling that this one is going to become a very popular and widely talked about book. January 16th is the release date.
- In Search of Us, by Ava Dellaira. I am very excited to read this book, which is told from the perespctives of a mother and daughter, both at age 17. The release date isMarch 6th.
