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…
