There are way too many brilliant books coming out this year. I keep buying books faster than I can read them and then I keep looking at other books that I want to read. But, just look how brilliant these books all sound! Below is a (probably) incomplete list of books I am excited about, in no particular order.
Foundryside by Robert Bennett Jackson (Published by Crown Publishing, August 21st)
I adored Robert Bennett Jackson’s The Divine Cities trilogy so very much when I read it last year and I cannot wait what he comes up with next. (This might be the one I am most excited about)
Heavy: An American Memoir by Kiese Laymon (Published by Scribner, October 16th)
This just sounds absolutely brilliant. I do love memoirs that blend the personal and the political, so this sounds right up my alley. That is has been blurbed by Roxane Gay obviously did not hurt my excitement.
All You Can Ever Know: A Memoir by Nicole Chung (Published by Catapult, Oktober 2nd)
It is no mystery how much I enjoy memoirs written by women and this one focussing on adoption and identity sounds absolutely like my type of book.
Small Spaces by Katherine Arden (Published by G. P. Putnam’s Group, September 25th)
I would read Katherine Arden’s shopping list if she decided to publish it. As The Winter of the Witch has been delayed until early 2019, this will be my yearly fix of her wonderful writing. I don’t usually read Middle Grade but again, it’s Katherine Arden.
Rosewater by Tade Thompson (Published by Orbit, September 18th)
I adored Tade Thompson’s The Murders of Molly Southbourne and cannot wait for this one. I am lucky to have an E-ARC and trying very much to not read this already.
Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss (Published by Granta, September 20th)
I have an ARC for this and I am very excited to get to this. Sarah Moss seems like an author I would adore and I really need to get to her books.
Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse (Published by Saga Press, June 26th)
This just sounds brilliant and kickass and like something that I could love.
Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri (Published by Orbit, November 13th)
I don’t know what it is about this book but i just sounds absolutely wonderful. I really have not been reading enough fantasy. Also, yay for adult fantasy written by women.
Which books are you excited about for the rest of the year? Do tell me!
