Just like last year I decided to set another goal to read 36 books this year even though I sort of… kind of… failed last year’s challenge.
But that’s the idea of a CHALLENGE, isn’t it?
Here’s a few of the books I plan on reading in 2018;
Zenith is actually by a book blogger and I was lucky enough to get this for review (thanks Amazon Vine)! Wild Beauty and Roseblood were from Owlcrate’s. Heartless and Red Queen were gifts from my Bubba Bear last year and Strange The Dreamer was a purchase (the UK cover is SO MUCH prettier than the US).
The rest of the books I plan on reading are all ebooks on my Kindle or books that haven’t been released yet!
If you’d like to see the full list of my 2018 TBR you can find that [ H E R E ]. This list will change as the year goes on and it does not include separate lists I’ll be making for 2018 reading challenges like my seasonal Halloween challenge or the 2018 Debut Author Challenge and any other bookish challenge I can find/come up with!
There are a few titles I’m absolutely looking forward to!
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns was released last year and has gotten some pretty positive responses from the bookstagramming community. I had to put it off last year to read books I had for review but I’m ITCHING to dive into this one! It sounds so good and uh can we just talk about how freakin awesome this cover is?!
An East Asian fantasy reimagining of The Evil Queen legend about one peasant girl’s quest to become Empress–and the darkness she must unleash to achieve her destiny.
Say that doesn’t sound super interesting!
I might be a little bit biased about my excitement for this book just because my name is in it. Whooooo knows.
This book isn’t released until the end of January and though I keep forgetting what it’s actually about, I’m in love with this cover as well!
Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”
I mean okay, that sounds right up my alley!
Both of these books play into my love for fairy tales. Maybe this year I’ll stumble on a new genre, or try a new genre… who knows.
I hope to complete my reading challenge for this year, I miss reading and falling in love with books — and it’s been YEARS since I’ve actually FALLEN IN LOVE with a book! My boyfriend tries so hard to find books he thinks I may like, or books I’ve mentioned that he agree’s I’d really love and I love that he supports my love for books and reading and fairy tales. I absolutely can’t wait to fall in love with a book and tell him all about it!
Last year he even joined me in my reading challenge though I’m not sure he’s going to this year — he has graphic novels and manga he needs to catch up on and I do love when he tells me about a story he’s read that he wants to share with me too 🙂
So here’s to 2018; finding new genres, new book loves and reading books I’ve put off!
Are there any books you’re looking forward to or planning on reading in 2018?
