2018 Most Anticipated - Melissa From Raincoast

Today I have the awesome Melissa from Raincoast Books stopping by to share her list of books that should be on your radar for 2018! There are some pretty amazing sounding ones that I predict people are already excited about.

There are some amazing books being released in 2018 that it’s almost impossible to choose (my TBR pile is teetering!), but below are 5 highlights to look forward to in the new year:

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert (goodreads)

I don’t even know where to start with this one except to say READ. THIS. BOOK! Alice and her mother have had terrible luck. When Alice’s grandmother—the author of a cult-classic book of dark fairytales called Tales of the Hinterland—dies on her estate, The Hazel Wood, their luck gets worse. Alice’s mother is taken by someone claiming to be from the Hinterland and Alice, with the help of Hinterland superfan Ellery Finch, must try to find her. If that’s not enough to hook you, the film rights for The Hazel Wood have already been bought by Columbia Pictures/Sony and the book has received 4 starred reviews. A creepy, engaging and compelling read that will keep you turning pages, The Hazel Wood is a debut that you won’t want to miss! 

Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke (goodreads)

After being expelled from her high school, Jane Sinner signs up for a Big Brother-esque reality show called House of Orange while attending high school completion classes at a community college. Written by a fellow Vancouver-ite and set in Alberta, Nice Try, Jane Sinner is a funny and engaging debut. In the words of Becky Albertalli: “Jane Sinner snarked her way into my heart, and she's never leaving. Prepare to fall hard for this hilarious, heartfelt gem of a book." Nice Try, Jane Sinner is definitely one to watch for in 2018.

A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena (goodreads)

Since Kathy featured Tanaz Bhathena and A Girl Like That in her Most Anticipated event already, I won’t go in to too much more detail! I just have to say that A Girl Like That is a stunning debut by Canadian author Tanaz Bhathena with beautiful writing and a gripping plot, and it also brings attention to race and religion and the crucial discussions we need to have about equality.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi (goodreads)

Children of Blood and Bone is a highly anticipated West-African inspired fantasy novel by debut author Tomi Adeyemi that has already generated a ton of buzz in the community! The vivid storytelling in this book will immediately make it clear why Children of Blood and Bone has been optioned for a movie by Fox 2000 Pictures before the book has even released. An original, captivating fantasy, Children of Blood and Bone is definitely one you’ll want to read in 2018!

Furyborn by Claire Legrand (goodreads)

This is a must-read high fantasy of 2018! Furyborn follows two young women—Rielle and Eliana—who are 1,000 years apart but whose stories are ultimately connected. The book alternates between the two perspectives and will keep you engrossed until the very end. Furyborn is a remarkable start to this new trilogy, and one to check out next year!

A huge thank you to Melissa for stopping by! I hope you've added a few more books to your 'to be read' list.

Come back tomorrow for the next book on my #2018MostAnticipated list.
