Trying to set your 2018 reading calendar based on publishing release dates? Check out these 30 books! You are guaranteed to find something!

With the new year comes a new rash of great books, to inevitably add to your to-be-read piles. With this slideshow, I am going to show you just a couple of books that I am thrilled to look forward to in the first six months of the new year. And y’all, let me tell you — it is gonna be a really, really good six months for books. And then there’s another six months after that!

I am absolutely positive that there are more books out there that I have missed, and would love. If you think there is a title I and Culturess need to keep on hand, throw the title and author in the comments! I’m not that picky, so I’d love to know what you’re hyped about!

Some of these, I already know that I’ll be reviewing, which is super exciting!

There are so, so many great books coming out, but sadly, I cannot include them all on this list. These are ones that I personally have heard fantastic things about, and can’t wait to read. What books are you looking forward to?

If this list makes you want to pick one of these books up, I hope you’ll tell me in the comments
