12 Books I Need More Than Cake Coming Out in 2018

Posted by 6 Comments

2018 is gonna be a good year for books. Maybe. Hopefully. As long as these books I need more than cake don’t let me down. Otherwise, its gonna be a bad year for books and I am calling quits.

1. Meet Cute: Some People Are Destined to Meet 

Who doesn’t want a story about cute meet cutes? I DO. PLEASE GIVE IT TO ME. I WANT IT.

2. My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma

I am here for a Bollywood rom-com in literary form. That is all. I came out of the womb ready for this.

3. Royals by Rachel Hawkins

I’ve read 7/8 of Rachel Hawkin’s books so you bet your ass I am dying to read Royals. You’re lucky you didn’t have to hear me scream when the cover was revealed.

4. From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon

I think it stands to reason I will read any book by Sandhya Menon? Also the cover is super cute and I am here for it.

5. Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi

AHHHHHHHH. A MG ADVENTURE INSPIRED BY HINDU MYTH?? Yessssss. I’ve only been waiting for this since I was a KID.

6. Save the Date by Morgan Matson

The funniest thing about me including Save the Date is that I haven’t read a single book by Matson but who can resist a book with a wedding? I CANNOT. Also that cover is literally the cutest in the world.

7. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adyemi

Children Of Blood and Bone has a gorgeous cover and a synopsis that gets my heart pumping and that is all the reason anyone needs to get hyped for a book.

8. #Prettyboy Must Die by Kimberly Reid

The book is inspired by #Alexfromtarget. It’s a fun spin involving a teen CIA operative and I know I am gonna gobble this book up faster than I’d consume a slice of cake.

9. The Way You Make Me Feel by Maureen Goo

I Believe In a Thing Called Love was one of my favorite reads of 2017 so it stands to reason that I would automatically want whatever Maureen Goo wrote next because I want some fun feel-good vibes in my life.

10. Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

I’ve been reading Jenn Bennett’s books since before she wrote YA so yess I ALSO want to read Starry Eyes. Basically, just give me all the Jenn Benn.

11. Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine & Ann Aguirre

Honor Among Thieves is a sci-fic that involves thieves and thats all I need to know. I mean also, its written by incredibly talented authors so thats definitely a plus.

12. The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

A dystopia set in New Orleans? I want it. I mean, I haven’t read a dystopia in a 100 years but that’s okay. I am still gonna want to read this book.

Are you looking forward to any of these books in 2018? What others books are you looking forward to 2018? HELP ME GROW MY TBR.

As I grow older, the more fond I become of reading non-fic and in particular, celebrity memoirs. Even just two years ago, I would have gagged at the thought of me picking up a memoir to read and yet here we are. I’ve started spending MONEY on them. I am a wild child. Anyway, here is a list some of the non-fic (all celeb memoirs) that I’ve been eyeing and wanting to read lately!!

1. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

When young Trevor Noah took over on the Daily Show for Jon Stewart, I was over the moon. At some point, even if you love them, you get tired of listening to 50yo white men. He was a fresh new voice and I’ve really enjoyed the show. His…

2017 has been an absolute garbage year not just on a political level but like a personal level (for me at least.) Back in 2016, I was so excited to bid the year adieu and yet here we are, again. I am not particularly looking forward to 2018 because wow, what a scary path ahead of us, but there are some books coming out that I’ve been waiting for since before I was born and I just wanted to scream about them for a little bit to make myself feel a little bit more pumped to bid this year GOODBYE.

1. Trouble Never Sleeps by Stephanie Tromly

I’ve been waiting for this book since 2016 and its unfair that I still have to waitttt. If you haven’t read this…

But when Dusty wins the hand of the handsome Scottish laird-to-be Ronan on the TRC television network’s crown jewel, Prince in Disguise, Dylan has to face a different kind of reality: reality TV.

‘Tis the season and you might be craving a book reflective of the season to read. Well don’t you worry, I did ~some~ work to compile a list of some recent-ish releases to get you in the mood for the holidays!

  Picture Books Queen of the Hanukkah Dosas by Pamela Ehrenberg

If the title and cute cover doesn’t sell you on this one, I don’t know what will. I heard the title and I knew I needed this adorable picture book in my life.

Fred and the Lumberjack by Steven Weinberg

This adorable little picture book isn’t centered around any holiday but its still such a goo read for the season. Its got a little beaver who just wants to make a new friend and a home. 10/10 cuteness rating.

The new year is just around the corner and it’s gonna be a new year, new me (probably for like 5 seconds.) To aid my journey of reinventing myself for 2018, I thought I’d get some deep, dark, confessions off my chest. I hope you’ll still want to hang with me after learning about some of the horrifying things I’ve done but if not, I understand.

 

1. Like a regular person, I like to eat while I read but one time, while I was reading Breaking Dawn which I had borrowed from my review, I accidentally dropped the slice of pizza I was eating inside the book and never told my friend. She never said anything and didn’t disown me so I guess she never found out.
