Books I’m excited for in 2018

Hey guys,

With the new year approaching upon us, I thought I’d take it into my hands to give you some suggestions for books to look out for in 2018! Let’s begin!

Zenith

Summary:
Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness, a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her glass starship, Marauder, however, she's just Andi, their friend and fearless leader.

But when a routine mission goes awry, the Marauder's all-girl crew is tested as they find themselves in a treacherous situation and at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter from Andi's past.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.

Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their shipor just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only certainty is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted.

Easily one of my most anticipated reads of the year, Zenith by Lindsay Cummings and Sasha Alsberg has been on my list for the better half of a year now. I’ve been following both of them via there booktube accounts and it’s been a grand time watching them get from stage one of a first draft to a full finished novel!  I read the excerpt they posted on Amazon that leads up to the events in the book and I ADORED the writing style. It was very easy to follow, and straight to the point, while the action was pretty gruesome and intense, I admire it.

 

The Apocalypse Gaurd


Summary:
Over a decade ago, people started manifesting strange, incredible powers. One side effect of this was an awareness of alternate dimensions—some of these powers could reach into other realities, other versions of Earth. Though infinite dimensions are present, most of these are unstable, existing only as vague possibilities.

What? A book by Brandon Sanderson? What a surprise? (Sarcasm) Of course Brandon Sanderson. If you’ve even been following my blog for a week, I’m sure you’ve noted that I am obsessed with his writing.

Almost every book I have read of Brandon’s  is sensational. Considered a sequel series to The Reckoners Trilogy, The Apocalypse Guard is highly anticipated in my book.

 

Wires and Nerve Vol. #2

Summary:
Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness, a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her glass starship, Marauder, however, she's just Andi, their friend and fearless leader.

But when a routine mission goes awry, the Marauder's all-girl crew is tested as they find themselves in a treacherous situation and at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter from Andi's past.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.

Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their shipor just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only certainty is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted.

After finishing The Lunar Chronicles, I suffered severe withdrawals after leaving all of these amazing characters at the climax of Winter by Marissa Meyer. So when Marissa announced volume one of Wires and Nerve, I became ecstatic that I would be returning to the world in graphic novel form.

Going into volume one, I tried to have low expectations. It would be the first time I’d be seeing these characters that were in my head brought to life on the page, and I was nervous they wouldn’t look the way I thought. Fortunately, they ended up looking exactly like I had imagined and getting back to the world was very refreshing and easy. Since I loved volume one a ton, I am HIGHLY anticipated volume two.

 

Legendary

Summary:
Stephanie Garber’s limitless imagination takes flight once more in the colorful, mesmerizing, and immersive sequel to the bestselling and breakout debut Caraval, following Scarlett’s younger sister, Tella, on a journey to the empire’s capital to fulfill a mysterious bargain.

Book two of Caraval is just around the corner, with a release date of May 2018, I am anticipating the sequel and hoping it will be better than the first. For anyone new-ish to the blog, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I thought that the plot was a bit confusing and the story was just okay, but the thing that makes’s me want to continue was the end. Easily my favorite part of the book, the end gave insights into how the next installment would continue, and It seemed like something that I’d like better than the first novel.

 

That’s it! Those are my MOST anticipated reads for 2018! I’m sure as the year progresses I’ll start to have more, but right now I’m still recovering from my long hiatus and trying to get caught up in the book world again, until that point, these are the books I’m looking forward to reading the most.  Once I have more, I’ll make sure to publish a part two and let you all know my other anticipated read for the year!

Thank’s for reading my post! Until next time, READ ON!

  1. I enjoyed the lunar chronicles, which I read at your suggestion…I’l have to give wires and nerve a try…

  2. You should look into it! I have a feeling it’s going to be a HUGE book in the YA community this year. With the novella being at the top of the New York Time’s bestseller list, I think we will be seeing great things occur this January!
