Welcome to Day Five of the Top 10 of 2017
A WEEK OF LOOKING BACK…
…AND LOOKING FORWARD
And thank you to everyone who participated, followed along, or shared their favorite reads in the comments on each of the hosts’ blogs and instagrams. Here’s to a great reading year. The books coming out in 2018 are going to be awesome!
As mentioned previously…
It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since I began co-hosting the event with Jaime of Two Chicks on Books. Over the years the event has changed a bit, as have the hosts, and I’m so thrilled that this year in addition to the incredible Jaime of Two Chicks on Books, Nancy and Christy of Tales of the Ravenous Reader, and Bridget of Dark Faerie Tales, we are joined by Fallon of Seeing Double in Neverland and the lovely ladies at Take Me Away To A Great Read!
And, for the first time ever, we’re stoked to have an Instagram component, headed up by Bridget @DarkFaerieTales_.
I haven’t been blogging very much during the last half of the year, but nearly every book I have read this year has been amazing. So I have a few favorites from the year to share.
If you haven’t yet heard of the Top 10 of 2017 week-long event, in a nutshell it’s where we share our favorite bookish lists and invite you to share yours over the next five days by leaving your post links in the daily Linky Lists.
Yet again, we’re each hosting our own giveaways on each of the five days of this challenge – Head over to Two Chicks on Books for the Day One giveaway, I hosted Day Two’s giveaway, Tales of the Ravenous Reader hosted Day Three’s giveaway, Day Four’s giveaway is at Take Me Away to a Great Read, and Day Five’s giveaway is at Seeing Double in Neverland. So be sure be to visit each of our blogs this week to share your post links and enter the giveaways!

The Books I’m Most Looking Forward to in 2018
Okay, so for today’s list I have so many books I can’t wait to read that are coming out in 2018. (And one that I had on last year’s list that had a bit of a delay but now has an official release date.) So there is an honorable mentions list, because I just couldn’t stop at 10, especially since most of my top anticipated reads are continuations of series and there are quite a few standalones and new series that I’m excited about.
THE DARK CALLING (The Arcana Chronicles #5) by Kresley Cole
THE DARKEST LEGACY (The Darkest Minds #4) By Alexandra Bracken
THE TRAITOR’S RUIN (The Traitor’s Circle #2) by Erin Beatty
BETWEEN THE BLADE AND THE HEART (Valkyrie #1) by Amanda Hocking
UNEARTHED (Unearthed #1) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
NIGHTBLOOD (Frostblood Saga #3) by Elly Blake
99 LIES (100 Hours #2) by Rachel Vincent
DEFY THE WORLDS (Constellation #2) by Claudia Gray
GENESIS (Project Nemesis #2) by Brendan Reichs
LOST CROW CONSPIRACY (Blood Rose Rebellion #2) by Rosalyn Eves
I have so many books I’m excited for in 2018 that I couldn’t stop at listing just the 10 above. And while this honorable mentions list doesn’t include every book I can’t wait to read, it does include just 10 more of them that I would have included above if “10” wasn’t quite so specific a number.
- STRANGE NEW WORLD (Brave New Girl #2) by Rachel Vincent
- BRIGHT WE BURN (The Conqueror’s Saga #3) by Kiersten White
- THE TRAITOR PRINCE (Ravenspire #3) by C.J. Redwine
- UNTITLED (Renegades #2) by Marissa Meyer – and no, “untitled” is not its title, though it would be very interesting if it were.
- UNTITLED (Warcross #2) by Marie Lu – as above; hopeful this is a 2018 release!
- BRIGHT BURNS THE NIGHT by Sara B. Larson
- RAGE (Stormheart #2) by Cora Carmack
- UNTITLED (Amateurs #3) by Sara Shepard – as above
- UNTITLED (Pandava #3) by Roshani Chokshi – as above; hopeful this is a 2018 release!
- STARRY EYES by Jenn Bennett
And I also can’t wait to hear more about Marie Rutkoski’s upcoming series, the first book rumored to be slated for release this year.
