Anticipated releases Jan. - March 2019.

Hi booklovers

Even though I'm going to be focusing on reading my backlist books this year, there are still some new releases I'm really looking forward to.

Let's take a look at the first three months of the year.

*8th: In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire
I actually pre-ordered the audiobook.

*17th: Tangled Like Us - Krista and Becca Ritchie
These kinds of covers aren't my favourite ones, that's why I only read NA on my e-reader :-)

*29th: King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
I can't wait to be back in the Grisha Universe.

*5th: Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers
I really loved the His Fair Assassin trilogy and I'm very excited for this spin-off duology. And look at that stunning cover.

*18th: The Risk by Elle Kennedy

*5th: Wild Country by Anne Bishop
I didn't enjoy the first book in the spin-off series of The Others as much as I did the original series, but I still enjoyed it enough to want to continue with it.

*5th: Shadow Me by Tahereh Mafi
Even though I still need to read Restore Me (I'm rereading the first three books) I'm very curious about this novella from Kenji's POV. (I just hope it's not a disappointment like ACOFAS was.)

*Peace and Turmoil by Elliot Brooks
I received an e-arc from the author in exchange for an honest review and I'm very much looking forward to reading this. You can check out her channel here.

Are any of these books on your anticipated releases lists as well or are there other books you are excited about? Let me know in the comments.

Bye for now

Favourite books of 2018.

Hi booklovers

It's the second day of the new year, so let's talk about the best books I've read in 2018.

But first, some statistics:

I'm not going to put these in any specific order, I'm just going to list them. I've divided them according to genre.

Favourite fantasy books

*The Well of Ascension - The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson
*Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb
*The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
*Traitor's Blade by Sebastien de Castell

*Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb

*Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Favourite dystopian and sci-fi

*Scythe - Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman

*Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

*Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

*Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Favourite New Adult contemporary

*Damaged Like Us by Krista & Becca Ritchie

I had a great reading year: I wanted to read 60 books and managed to read 64. This year, I'm lowering my goal to 30 books, so I don't feel pressured to read. I'm probably going to read more, but I mainly want to focus on those bigger fantasy books on my TBR, so those will take me longer to get through.

How was your reading year?

Bye for now
