Top Ten Books I'm Looking Forward to in 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to blog about their top ten books they are looking forward to in 2018. There are so many novels that I am looking forward to reading but I picked a variety of different genres to showcase. The following books are in no particular order.

1. Heart of Ash by Kim Liggett is the second book in the Blood and Salt series and I cannot wait to read more about Ash and Dane. Will love vanquish Coronado for good?

2. Escaping From Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco is the third novel in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series. I cannot wait to see Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell in action traveling to America. With the Moonlight Carnival occurring and young privileged women go missing, the duo is back to solve the mystery!

3. Ink, Iron, and Glass by Gwendolyn Clare is a wonderful debut novel about a young lady who is talented in scriptology. With a mixture of fantasy and historical fiction, this novel sounds intriguing!

4. Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli is a companion novel to Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Leah is first introduced as a good friend of Simon's in the first novel and now she comes back with a novel of her own! It's senior year and there is a lot on Leah's mind and even Simon doesn't know everything about Leah.

5. The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw is a paranormal novel that is Hocus Pocus meets Practical Magic. I am looking forward to this paranormal witchy book

6. Legendary by Stephanie Garber is the sequel to Caraval. Scarlett learns of the secrets Tella and Julian have been hiding from her. Can anyone be trusted?

7. The Forest Queen by Betsy Cornwell is a retelling of Robin Hood but it's more female centric. The retelling will explore topics like economic justice, love, gender, the healing power of nature and family.

8. Dear Miss Sweetie by Stacey Lee is a historical novel about a Chinese teenager living in the 1980's in Atlanta. This young lady is a pseudonymous author for a popular newspaper column and comes across a controversial incident that involves race.

9. The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan is about a young woman who is half Asian and half white. She travels to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents after her mother's death. This novel is about love, grief, family, hope and so much more.

10. Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed is an important book to read. The main character is an Indian-American Muslim teen who confronts Islamophobia. A horrific crime occurred and the culprit shares the same last name as her. She realizes how people can turn against her just because of her name, her religion and because of her heritage.
