It feels like I just posted my most anticipated release of January – June 2018 and now I’m posting the last half of the year for book releases. Time is flying by way too fast!
July 10: The Fifth to Die by J.D Barker
First on my list is J.D Barker’s second installment of his 4MK Thriller, which I adored reading last year. Since the publisher’s were good enough to send me an ARC, I am definitely going to read and review this novel.
July 24: Contagion by Erin Bowman
I came across this book while looking for new releases and the cover seems really interesting so I definitely want to check it out. I haven’t read any of Bowman’s other works
July 31 The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken
I’m actually really surprised that there is a fourth novel to Bracken’s Darkest Mind Trilogy. I feel like a lot of authors have been doing this recently, they’re adding books in their series with a different protagonist/ different problem for the main characters. Later in my list we see another author do this.
August 28: Mirage by Somaiya Daud
This novel seems like a loose retelling of the Prince and the Pauper, which I think is a nice concept for a book. I always enjoy reading books like these and the rating for it on Goodreads is also high, so why not try it out.
August 28: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab
Victoria Schwab readers are either really a fan of her work or not. I haven’t really read a lot of her books yet to be able to judge which category I’m in. I have a few of her novels and I really should get a move on to those, but this one looks really interesting and I feel like its more up my alley.
September 4: Two Dark Reign by Kendra Blake
I’ve been waiting for this book to be released since the first book came out. I haven’t read the first or the second book of this trilogy, but I actually want to make sure all books are out before I start it. Blake has a tendency to leave you hanging in her stories.
September 18: Wildcard by Marie Lu
I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it. I wasn’t finatic about is as most people were, but I still highly enjoyed it. I have a problem with Lu’s novels tho, I tend to enjoy the first and be let down by the second and third. I might wait for next year to actually pick this one up, but I’m still quite excited for it.
September 18: Escaping Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco
This is also another book that I read last year. I’m fascinated with any books regarding Jack the Ripper and so I definitely had to check the first book out. Since I enjoyed my reading experience with the first book, I definitely want to continue with the story. Although I haven’t really gotten around to reading the second book, I’m still looking forward to the release of the third.
October 2: A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs
This is that other book I mentioned before. I’m really surprised that Riggs wrote another book for this trilogy since the last novel wrapped up the story nicely. I’m really intrigued as to how Riggs is going to create another adventures for his main characters and I’m actually excited to get back into the world. For someone who didn’t start out as a fan, I’m
October 2: Muse of Nightmare by Laini Taylor
I wasn’t a fan of Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy, but I did love her writing. So I want to read this new series of hers. I have the first book and I want to keep hoarding this other one. I really should get a move on with reading this trilogy.
November 6: Archenemies by Marissa Meyer
This is one book release that I’m not sure about. I haven’t read the first book in this trilogy and I really don’t have to push to do so. I wasn’t really a big fan of Meyer in the beginning but has come to love her characters. I’m a bit hesitant to get into these books.
December 4: Lumberjanes Vol. 10
I haven’t picked up a lot of graphic novels lately, but I do like reading them back to back rather than waiting forever for them to be released. I don’t read a lot of graphic novels, but Lumberjanes is one of my favorite. Can’t wait to see what happens to the girls in this volume.
December 11: Broken Lands by Jonathan Maberry
This is another author that has added another book to his finished series. I’m really not complaining about the addition of books, since these books are amazing, I’m just surprised at the additions. I’m really not sure what this book is about, but I know that it’s set in the same world as his Rot and Ruin series.
