Top Ten Tuesday: YA Debuts I'm Looking Forward to In 2018


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is Books I'm Looking Forward to In 2018.  Without further ado here are YA Debuts I'm looking forward to through April 2018, in order by release date:


Everless (Untitled #1) by Sara Holland (1/2) - Even though the cover bears a striking resemblance to Firstlife (Everlife #1) by Gena Showalter (which I didn't care for), this fantasy where time as currency sounds like it has a lot of potential.


Gunslinger Girl by Lynday Ely (1/2) - YA Western Sci-Fi Dystopia?  Sounds pretty cool to me!


Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke (1/9) - I can't say I've ever read a Contemporary featuring a reality show before, but this sounds like it could be great.


Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed (1/16) - This #OwnVoices debut has been recommended to fans of Angie Thomas and I've seem so many great things about it already.  Sounds like this will be one to have on the radar!


I Stop Somewhere by T.E. Carter (2/27) - I don't know about you, but I'm getting vibes of The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis from the summary of this dark Contemporary novel.


Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi (3/6) - Have you read the summary for this upcoming fantasy? It sounds like it's going to be the next big thing!


Tyler Johnston Was Here by Jay Coles (3/20) - If you haven't heard, it's already being compare to The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas!  That alone is enough to put it on my radar.


Nothing But Sky by Amy Trueblood (3/27) - Post-WWI set historical fiction about a barnstorming team?!  I need this in my life!


Beyond A Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake (4/10) - This ancient Ireland set Fantasy sounds like it will be right up my alley!


Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young (4/24) - Viking-inspired fantasy - that's all I needed to hear!

What books are you looking forward to reading in 2018?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  2. Wonderful list! I got so excited when I saw the books you decided to include in this week's Top Ten, because they're all at the top of my most anticipated reads list! It's never ending but, hopefully, I'll be able to read at least some of them throughout the year! Hope you're having a wonderful week!

  7. I confess that I have heard of none of these books. I seem to live with my head in a hole for a while at the end of each year and then have to play catch up as new books are published.

  18. OH Everless sounds amazing! And the concept about time being currency, has me soooo nervous for Jules and her father. Here's hoping we both love this book!
