December is upon us and the turn of the new year less than a month away, which only means one things; new releases! As always, Book Riot has curated a diverse and exciting list of buzzed-about books set to drop in the first months of 2018, and I’m adding scores of them to my TBR.
Personally, I’m pumped for Holly Black’s The Cruel Prince (once an urban fantasy kid, always an urban fantasy kid) and Colin Winnette’s The Job of the Wasp, because I’m a sucker for a good twisty gothic. A bunch of book bloggers I know have been clambering for ARCs of Chloe Benjamin’s The Immortalists, and I’m eager to see if the magic-infused family drama lives up to the hype. Similarly, I’m excepting Tumblr to fall into a maelstrom over Madeline Miller’s new Greek-mythology inspired novel, Circe, but maybe I ought to read Song of Achilles before moving onto Circe! Finally, Angels in America is back on Broadway and it seems fitting that The World Only Spins Forward: The Ascent of Angels in America should be front and center in the non-fiction world. I’ve always loved theatre, and I’m eager to learn more about the writing, production, and reception of the landmark play.
What 2018 new releases are you most excited about?
