2017 Releases I Want to Read in 2018

2017 releases I want to read in 2018
I realized at the end of last year that I bought a lot of the 2017 releases that I was anticipating, but I have not read them. I think that’s because I get really scared of reading book that I’m anticipating because I feel like they may let me down, that’s why in 2018 I’m trying to keep track and read the new releases I’m anticipating. Also, I want to read some of the 2017 releases that I own but I have not read yet. Here’s a list of the ones I want to read the most.
2017 -1
We Are Ok by Nina LaCour
I have read only one book by Nina LaCour, Everything Leads to You, and I really liked it, so I’m excited to give another one of her books a chance.  All I know about this book is that it’s a quiet book about loss and grief. I also know that there’s queer girls in it. I think I’m gonna love it, also I may cry multiple times.
Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza 
This was my most anticipated release of 2017, I was so excited to read it and I even bought it as soon as it came out. But I heard not such good things about it and I started to read it (I just read the first few pages) and I don’t know if I wasn’t in the mood or what, but I didn’t connect with the writing at all. Nonetheless, I want to give this one another chance, because the concept sounds amazing and it has a diverse cast of characters.
There’s lesbian rep and bisexual rep, there’s music and romance and I can’t wait to read it. I will say that the thing that has me most excited to read it, it’s that a queer reviewer called this on Goodreads “one of the most bi- positive books she’s ever read” and I’m so excited to see that for myself.
2017 -2
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
All I know about this book is that there’s queer characters that travel through Europe. I have heard nothing but good things about this one, LITERALLY nothing but good things, so I don’t know why I’m so scared to read it. I even read the first few pages recently and I really liked the writing.
Dear Martin by Nic Stone 
I have heard this is a short but powerful story that deals with topics like racism and poverty. Someone told me that if I liked The Hate U Give, I would like this one, so I’m excited to give it a chance. Also, I have heard there’s little description and lots of dialogue, which sounds great to me.
I think the main reason I want to read this is that description of the main character, she is an Arab Indian-American hijabi teenager and at the same time she is a book nerd, aspiring photographer, and sometime graphic novelist. She sounds amazing and I can’t wait to meet her!  As all the books on this list, I don’t know why I haven’t read this yet.

  1. I really enjoyed both Saints & Misfits and We Are Okay last year. I’ve never head of The Love Song of Sawyer Bell before, but it sounds fantastic! I’m always looking for more bi-positive books to read, so thanks for the recommendation 🙂
