Following my Top 17 of ’17 and a fabulous year for reading, here are some of the books I am most looking forward to reading in 2018: a prospective Top 18 of ’18! I have again been lucky enough to be granted some amazing looking ARCs and I am also looking forward to new books from some of my favourite authors.
I cannot wait…because of their blurb:
Like an updated version of my favourite film, Rear Window, with psychological overtones and a possibly-unreliable female lead? Yes please!
While we’re on the subject of re-imaginings, a classic country house Agatha Christie meets the television series Quantum Leap?? Again: yes!
Described as a cross between the film The Breakfast Club and the television show Pretty Little Liars, this Young Adult mystery thriller sounds right up my street.
I love Sharon Bolton’s books and am sure that The Craftsman will be no exception! It sounds creepy, mysterious, thrilling…and totally terrifying!
I cannot wait…because of their buzz:
This original serial killer premise, combining police procedural and amateur sleuth, has received consistently positive reviews since its release towards the end of 2017.
I was drawn to this by its stark cover and encouraged by the amazing reviews. I’m looking forward to being thoroughly creeped out during the dark winter nights!
I’ve been reading great things about this psychological thriller for some time now and definitely need to bump it up my TBR pile during 2018.
“When you read this book, you will make many assumptions…you will be wrong” reminds me of Behind Her Eyes, which I loved; it sounds twisty and the reviews have been fantastic.
This is another book with an intriguing, original-sounding concept that has been receiving rave reviews. I’m looking forward to finding out whydunnit!
I cannot wait…because I am late to the party:
All of the following have been out for a while and/or are the start of a popular series that I really want to get on to reading in 2018.
Here’s to a wonderful, bookish 2018!
