Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is the Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to In 2018.

You would think this would be an easy list to make, after all, don’t we look forward to every book? But narrowing it down to the top ten of those was quite a challenge. So here they are, in no particular order.

  1. The Ancient Magus’ Bride by Kore Yamazaki. I read the first volume back in July, loved it and immediately bought the next six volumes. However, I have put off reading the entire series until 2018 because the final volume comes out in March and I want to read the whole series in one sitting.
  2. Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. I have been saying “I will read this one this year no matter what!” every year for the past fiev years and I still haven’t read it yet. So I’m looking forward to finally (hopefully) reading it in 2018.
  3. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynn Jones. I have been meaning to read this series since watching the anime movie, but never have. So this will be a priority read in 2018.
  4. The African Trilogy by Chinua Achebe. I cannot wait to read this book in 2018.
  5. The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill. I meant to read this one this year, but sadly didn’t get to it. So 2018 is the year it will be read, and then I can watch the miniseries as well.
  6. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. I’m pretty sure I read this series when I was younger, but I can’t remember the story, so I will be reading them in 2018.
  7. Dune by Frank Herbert. I keep putting this one off, because it’s such a chunky book and the font is so darn tiny. But with luck this will be among the many books I read in 2018.
  8. Thrawn by Timothy Zahn. I don’t know how I didn’t read this one in 2017, but it will be among the first books read in 2018.
  9. Winter by Marissa Meyer. I put off reading this one for a while because I didn’t want the series to end, but I am going to make it a priority to read in 2018, because if I wait much longer I will forget too many details from the series and have to reread it all before reading Winter
  10. InuYasha by Rumiko Takahasi. I finally finished watching the anime series in 2017, so now I am looking forward to reading the manga to see how the story played out and experience all those parts that didn’t make it into the anime.

There we have it. The books I’m looking forward to in 2018. There are plenty of other books I can’t wait to read in the new year, but to list them all would be crazy. What book are you looking forward to in 2018?
