Hey guys! Today I’m going to be sharing my most anticipated releases of Fall 2018. A lot of great books have been published in 2018, but the year isn’t over yet! There are some really amazing books that I’ve been dying to read that are finally coming out in the next few months. Let me know if there’s a book that’s coming out in the fall but isn’t on my list. I’m always looking for recommendations.
These are organized by release date.
1. Heretics Anonymus by Katie Henry (August 7th, 2018)
Emma from the YouTube channel @emmmabooks has been raving about this book. She was the one who originally put it on my radar. I’m all about diverse books, and the fact that this features many instantly hooked me.
2. City Of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab (V. E. Schwab) (August 28th, 2018)
I’ve wanted to read a Victoria Schwab book for a while now, and since this is releasing pretty soon it will be my first book of hers. I’ve been wanting to read more paranormal and middle grade, and this book combines both which is great! The synopsis sounds cool, so I’m hoping it’ll be a fun middle-grade read!
3. A Spark Of White Fire by Sangu Mandanna (September 4th, 2018)
Ever since I heard that this book was going to be released, it’s been one of my most anticipated reads of the year. It’s inspired by Indian mythology and the Mahabharata. (I’m Indian, so I love seeing it in YA) It’s the start of a trilogy, which is also really exciting. I really hope I like it!
“Inspired by the Mahabharata and other ancient Indian stories, A Spark of White Fire is a lush, sweeping space opera about family, curses, and the endless battle between jealousy and love.”
Space opera? Sign me up!
I am lucky enough to have gotten an ARC of this book (thanks to NetGalley!) I read it a while ago, and I’m disappointed to report that I did not enjoy most of it. I did a blog post on it, so if you’re interested check it out!
5. Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake (September 4th, 2018)
This is the third book in the Three Dark Crown series. It follows three queens, who are all sisters as they fight for the throne. I’ve been enjoying the series so far, so I’m excited to continue!
6. Unbroken: 13 Stories Starring Disabled Teens (YA anthology) (September 18th, 2018)
I really appreciate all the diverse books being published this year. I’ve never read a book following a disabled character, and now I get to read 13! Overall, I have high hopes, but we’ll see.
7. Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend (September 24th, 2018)
Regan from the YouTube channel @peruseproject introduced me to this series, naming the first book, Nevermoor, one of her favorite books of 2017. I read it this year, and I have to agree. The book was so fun, filled with magic and adventure. It was my first middle-grade book of the year, and only good books have followed.
8. What If It’s Us by Becky Albertelli and Adam Silvera (October 9th, 2018)
OH MY GOSH!!!! This is up there as one of my most anticipated releases of the year. I read the first two chapters, and as expected they were wonderful. Put this on your Goodreads shelves, preorder, do whatever! You must read this book.
9. A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi (October 16th, 2018)
I haven’t read the Shatter Me series, (I know) so this will be my first book of hers. It’s an #ownvoices book that follows a Muslim teen navigating life after 9/11. This is also one of my most anticipated releases of the year, and I cannot wait for it!
The Storm Runner by J. C. Cervantes
Strange Grace by Tessa Graton
Sawkill Girls by Claire LeGrand (I have yet to read her first book, which is pretty embarrassing)
Broken Things by Lauren Oliver
Dry by Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman (I haven’t read anything of his either, but he’s co-writing this with his son which is so exciting!)
Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak (I DNF’ed (did not finish) the Book Thief, so we’ll see where this goes)
Let me know what your most anticipated fall 2018 releases are!
