Book Picks for Next Year

Last time I checked (around 5 minutes ago), I had 658 books on my Goodreads “Want to Read” shelf. With my current reading speed I will need approximately 10 years to go through them, if I don’t add any more. As if…!

So unless somehow (sorcery) I rise to the level of some people I follow (& admire) and manage to read over a hundred books a year, I’m in some shit.

Grim as it sounds, it has obviously not stopped me to pick some books for 2018 that have not been released yet. I’m always a sucker with my massive backlog and usually by the time I get to a certain book it’s pretty old news. Not this time!

Some of these six books coincide with some of the prompts from the Popsugar 2018 Reading Challenge, so I don’t have an excuse anymore.

Apart from Holly Black, whom I adore, I have not read anything from the other authors before.

Sunburn by Laura Lippman
The Immortalists by Chole Benjamin
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
Red Clocks by Leni Zumas
Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan


  1. The Cruel Prince was one of my first reads in 2018. It’s really good as none of those characters are 100% likeable and the main focus in on the plot rather than romance. I have been struggling with some YA but this one really suprised me (in a good way).
