December 26, 2017: Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to In 2018 (These could be new releases, or books you resolve to read, ten debuts we are looking forward to, etc.)
Two lists today. One for the books I’ve agreed to read and review in 2018 and one for book I hope to read with Miss S in 2018. Now that she is 7 and her reading skill are blooming and growing like crazy we can enjoy a wider range of book together. We recently finished the Illustrated Classic Edition of Heidi and are currently reading The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.
5 Books To Read & Review in 2018:
- Nocturne (The Fourth Talisman Book 1) – I am so excited for this one! I love Kat Ross and can’t wait to see what’s next in the imaginative fantasy world she’s created.
- Solis (The Fourth Talisman Book 2) – I haven’t received confirmation on this one yet, but I am hoping that I’ll get to read and review Solus, the book that follows Nocturne, for the blog tour.
- Romanov – Another blog tour I’ve signed up for is Romanov, a fantasy story featuring the famed royal family of Russia. I admit I have a weakness for re-imaginings of the fate of this family, ever since I watched Anastasia as a kid.
- The King of Eiselorn – I posted a book blitz about this book and agreed to also read and review it early in 2018. It sounds like an interesting fantasy story and I’m always looking for fantasy by people outside of the USA/UK/Canada.
- Something by KN Lee – I’ve received several books since signing up as a reviewer for KN Lee. And they all look great! Perhaps I’ll dig into Goddess of War or The Red Queen: A Flipped Fairy-Tale or maybe The Chronicles of Koa Boxed Set. It’s so hard to choose.
5 Books to Read With Miss S in 2018:
- Illustrated Classic Editions Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn – I know that these books are abridged, but its a good way to introduce her to the classics. And also I’ve collected stacks and stacks of them.
- The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe – It’s time. 7 is old enough and I think her attention span is now long enough that she can handle this book.
- Redwall – If I can figure out where they went after our move we’ll begin this great series this year.
- The Mouse and the Motorcycle – My husband and I brought this book up the other night and came to realize that she had never heard of it. Time to correct that overlook in our literary parenting.
- Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing – This laugh-out-load book will be a good chapter book for her. And frankly I’m looking forward to reading it again.
So those are some book we’ll be reading in the new year. What about you? Let me know what you are looking forward to reading in 2018 in the comments.
