Most Anticipated YA Books of 2018

It’s list time again! 2018 promises to be another great year of reading, and I’ve pulled together 15 of my most anticipated novels of the year (plus a few bonus titles at the end). The first set includes new standalones or series starters, and the second set contains books from ongoing series. And as always, the list is in alphabetical order and doesn’t contain books I acquired (even though I can’t wait for those!).

Whether you’re a contemporary, fantasy, mystery, or historical reader, you’re sure to find something to add to your TBR list!

New Standalones or Series

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody


The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan


The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton


Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi


Love, Hate, and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed


Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon


The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo 


Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce


Tyler Johnson Was Here by Jay Coles



Ongoing Series

Catwoman: Soul Stealer by Sarah J. Maas (DC Icons #3)

My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton (The Lady Janies #2)


A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir (Ember in the Ashes #3)


Sightwitch by Susan Dennard (The Witchlands #0.5)



And don’t forget…

These books don’t yet have their covers (or maybe even their titles), but I also can’t wait for…

  • For A Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig
  • On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
  • Sea of Ink and Gold #3 by Traci Chee
  • Throne of Glass #7 by Sarah J. Maas
  • What Goes Up by Wen Baragrey*
    • *Technically this is MG, but it’s an awesome crossover with the best, quirkiest characters
