30? No, I don't have a problem.

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

I was initially very put off by the cover. I mean, look at it. Have you ever seen a more obnoxiously girly cover in your life? But I read a few chapters after seeing several trusted friends' reviews, and the writing actually looks really funny. It totally reminds me of Monty Python and Terry Pratchett. I can't wait to read more!

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

"But Ellie!" they say. "I didn't think you liked Adam Silvera!"

I don't. I mean, I could barely even start his previous two books, let alone finish them. His writing is some of the most boring I've ever come across. And though I was initially skeptical of the randomly dystopian concept of this book, I've since decided I want to give it a try. I read a couple chapters at Barnes and Noble the other day, and it intrigued me. Plus, it's gay. That's always a bonus.

Sightwitch by Susan Dennard

Everyone else seems to have a billion 2018 releases they're hyped for, but not me. I am a humble potato farmer who only desires Hank Green's book (as all humans should) and this Truthwitch novella.

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

Have you ever [EVER] seen a more gorgeous cover?

I think it's pretty telling that the only two contemporaries on this list are gay.

The Wilderness by McKay Coppins

I'm a political junkie. What did you expect?

Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff

I mean, don't we all want to read this one.

Let's chat! Have you read or do you want to read any of these books? What 2018 releases are you excited for? Any books you're happy you gave a second chance? Comment below, and have an awesome weekend.

  1. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on My Lady Jane! I've seen a lot of great reviews but I just don't think I'd be able to enjoy it; I'm a big history nerd and I love the Tudors, and there's something so heart-breaking about Lady Jane Grey's story that I can't help finding this book a little distasteful even though I'm sure that's not the authors' intention.

  2. My Lady Jane was hilarious. So much fun! I had a preview of Sighwitch (still a little bitter because I thought it was the full novella), and what I read was great. There was a hint to something I would really love to happen too. Autoboyography was put on my favorites shelf last year. I just loved it! The romance was so sweet, Tanner had a fabulous family, and the religious aspect was well handled.

  3. The only one I've heard of is Fire and Fury, and oh boy. ^.^' I cannot wait to read it, though!

  4. THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END IS SO INCREDIBLY SAD. I'm tearing up at the thought of it.

    I'm surprised that you didn't like Silvera's writing, although now that I think about it, it's a tad bit dull :P

  5. I loved Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series, but My Lady Jane wasn't really on my radar until I read a chapter sampler and immediately clicked with the humor. Hope you enjoy it!

  6. Looks like a great TBR. Also, love the new header!
