most anticipated releases 2018.jpg

Hello lovelies ! I know we’re midway through January but it’s still time to make this post ! I know this list will grow through the year but anyway  !

The Spring Girls

The Spring Girls by Anna Todd

Four sisters desperately seeking the blueprints to life—the modern-day retelling of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women like only Anna Todd (After, Imagines) could do.The Spring Girls—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—are a force of nature on the New Orleans military base where they live. As different as they are, with their father on tour in Iraq and their mother hiding something, their fears are very much the same. Struggling to build lives they can be proud of and that will lift them out of their humble station in life, one year will determine all that their futures can become.
The oldest, Meg, will be an officer’s wife and enter military society like so many of the women she admires. If her passion—and her reputation—don’t derail her.
Beth, the workhorse of the family, is afraid to leave the house, is afraid she’ll never figure out who she really is.
Jo just wants out. Wishing she could skip to graduation, she dreams of a life in New York City and a career in journalism where she can impact the world. Nothing can stop her—not even love.
And Amy, the youngest, is watching all her sisters, learning from how they handle themselves. For better or worse.
With plenty of sass, romance, and drama, The Spring Girls revisits Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women, and brings its themes of love, war, class, adolescence, and family into the language of the twenty-first century.
Release date : January 2nd 2018 by Gallery Books

The Cruel PrinceThe Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

Release date : January 2nd 2018 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Everless

Everless by Sara Holland

In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.

No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.

But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.

Release date : January 2nd 2018 by HarperTeen

A Reaper at the gates

A Reaper At The Gates by Sabaa Tahir

Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.
The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister’s life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.
Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer. But while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid her, and is drawn into a battle she never thought she’d have to fight.
And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias’s devotion—even at the cost of his humanity.

Release date : June 12th 2018 by Razorbill

MY TOP 5 READS FOR 2017

best reads 2017Hello lovelies ! The end of the year is upon us and I want to share with you my top 5 books of 2017 ! It was difficult to narrow it to 5 books but I did it ! (and to be honest there’s one that counts for the whole series that I read this year hahaha !)

So, in no particular order :

  • A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas. It’s the second book in A Court Of Thorns And Roses series and this is my favorite one. But it can stand for the whole trilogy to be honest because I really LOVED these three books !
  • L’héritage Des Rois Passeurs by Manon Fargetton ! A must read for all the fantasy lovers who can read in French (because I don’t think it has been translated…yet.)
  • Without Merit by Colleen Hoover. Of course it had to appear in my top 5 ! I mean… it’s a CoHo’s book…
  • A Conjuring Of Light by V.E. Schwab. A beautiful conclusion to an amazing trilogy ! I can’t wait to read her series taking place in the same world !
  • Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare, the second book in The Dark Artifices trilogy. Oh God, this book ! And let’s be honest…Cassandra is the cliffhanger’s queen (with V.E. Schwab) because now we hav to wait for the third book…

That’s it ! Which books read this year made it to your top five ?

Merry Christmas !
