Hey there, readers and friends! A mere 25 days into the New Year, and already, the new releases and the many places they’ll take us are stacking up.

If there is one positive thing about a new year it’s the possibilities that come with it, specifically the possibilities of new reads.
Though I’m behind on reading (news, this is not), this doesn’t keep me from anticipating all the new reads coming to bookstores. Below I talk about a few (seven to be precise)of the 2018 releases I’m excited for.
In an attempt to stop myself from going wild, I limited myself to look at new books only for the first half of the year. Although if I’m being honest, I know I still missed some. Then, come May or June, I’ll be sharing some of the anticipated books on my list for the latter half of the year.
Here we go. Let’s get this anticipated-reads-of-2018 party started. Today we take a look at seven of the books I’m anticipating with
release dates ranging from March through June.
2018 Releases to Anticipate, Part 2: February – June (or Thereabouts)
1: Until I Knew Myself (March) by Tammy L. Gray | Only yesterday did I discover one of my favorite contemporary authors is releasing a new novel. Not only that she does have a new novel coming BUT it’s also set to release in a little over a month. BEST. BOOKISH. NEWS. EVER. Amazon | Goodreads
2: A Loyal Heart (March) by Jody Hedlund
He’s taken her as his prisoner. But she’s holding his heart captive. In gaining their freedom, will they lose what matters most?
Discovering Jody has a fourth novel (!?) due in her YA medieval series was a highlight of my bookworm discoveries in 2018. Plus, the elegant cover? It’s designed by the talented Emilie of CreateExploreRead. Amazon | Goodreads
3: Falling for You by Becky Wade (May 1) | I think it’s safe to say this upcoming novel from Becky Wade is at the tippy-top of my most wished-for list. In fact, I have a question to pose: can I fast-forward to May, read this novel and then return to January 25th? No? Well… it was worth the query. Amazon | Goodreads
4: Always Never Yours (May 22, 2018) by Austin Siegemund-Broka, Emily Wibberley
Every guy she dates falls madly in love… just not with her.
This one tells the unique story about a girl who’s exes always find their one true love post-breakup. It sounds really unique for the normal contemporary fare, and that’s what made it stand out when I ran across it via it’s cute and whimsical cover art. Bonus! It’s penned by a writing team who is married. Amazon | Goodreads
5: From Twinkle, with Love (May 22, 2018) by Sandhya Menon
Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.
Kasie West’s adorable story of secrets, love, and friendship is sure to win over hearts everywhere.
7: Save the Date (June) by Morgan Matson | Is it weird that I’ve only read one of Morgan’s books, and yet each and every time she releases a new one I wear my excited fangirl hat? I sure hope not because, again, this is another book that sounds like 100% my kind of book. Amazon | Goodreads
