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!

  • Sea of Ink and Gold #3 by Traci Chee
  • Throne of Glass #7 by Sarah J. Maas
  • What Goes Up by Wen Baragrey*
