We’ve reached the sixteenth day of Blogmas and it’s a Sunday which can only mean one thing, it’s time for one of Steph’s Six For Sunday prompts. This week is all about our bookish highlights of 2018. So I’ve managed to pull together 6 of my book related highlights, they’re not necessarily the best books I’ve read this year (that’s coming next week) they’re not even all books I’ve actually got round to reading this year but they are 6 things that have excited me in the bookish world this year.
Six for Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Steph at ALITTLEBUTALOT. You can find a list of the 2018 prompts here
2018 Bookish Highlights
Bright Ruin by Vic James
In 2017 Gilded Cage and Tarnished City quickly wormed their way into my dark space where my heart should reside as the beginning of one of my favourite trilogies. Bright Ruin was released this year, it gave me lots of feels and cemented Dark Gifts as one of my favourite trilogies ever
Lethal White by Robert Galbraith
I’ve always loved the Strike books and the fantastic adaptations on the BBC got me really excited about the fourth book in the series. I’ve not managed to read it yet because it is a really big book and I can’t lug it around in my handbag as I commute but I’m so pleased to know I’ve got more adventures with Strike and Robin to get stuck into this Christmas
Everless by Sara Holland
Sara Holland rather exploded onto my radar at the beginning of the year with the release of Everless. It’s a YA fantasy which utterly blew me away it was a incredible story and I cannot wait for more. Luckily Evermore is released in a couple of weeks!
More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer
I was a huge fan of Brigid’s book Letters to the Lost so I was really please to hear that some of the characters that featured in that story would be back in More Than We Can Tell. I’m really looking forward to catching back of with Rev, Declan and Juliet as soon as I get the chance!
Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt
I was such a huge fan of Unconventional that I was thrilled to hear Maggie was releasing a new novel during 2018. It’s sitting on my shelf and I really need to read it because it sounds fantastic!
Discovering the Barnes & Nobel Teen Blog
This year I discovered the Barnes & Nobel Teen Blog which has been filled with month after month of YA novel recommendations. Some are well known on this side of the pond but other recommendations have let me stumble across some great sounding books I’ve been able to buy from Amazon that don’t appear to be widely available in the UK. Books like #MurderTrending, See All the Stars, Cadaver & Queen and And She Was – by bank balance and TBR don’t thank me but I’m really looking forward to seeing what I discover via their blog in 2019.
