13 Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading in 2018

There are a lot of books I’d like to read in 2018, but I’ve narrowed them down to thirteen to share with you. Before I tell you which they are, a few disclaimers:

  1. This isn’t a Top 13; the books are in no particular order.
  2. While some of these books are coming out this year (I’ve mentioned which), there are some that are older.
  3. Some of the new releases don’t have covers, titles or synopsis yet. In the case of the unknown titles, I’ll just write which series the book is from and the number it’s supposed to be; as for the About (synopsis), I’ll just explain what the series is about.
  4. I’ve divided the books in the following categories: Fiction Novels (8), Guides (3), and Manga/Graphic Novels (2).

Let’s start with…

In case you haven’t figured it out by all the reviews I post on this blog: I love reading.

Shocker, I know.

If I were to let myself go and buy every book I wanted, I’d be broke in a week, probably even sooner. However, there are some books I desire more than others and since I think they’d be amazing reads, I decided to share them with you. This list is in no particular order and I tried to go for a bit of diversity so you’ll see three Fiction novels, a manga and a writing guide here, all of them by different authors.

Let’s start with the Fiction novels Continue reading

My To Review in July List

When I started doing book reviews on my blog, I decided to do at least one per month and I usually did just one. However, with the exception of January, this year has seen me review two or even three books per month. And this July?

I have three scheduled – two Fiction books and one guide – but, as always, a new ARC might pop up later on.

So which books are up for review this month?
