IT’S TIME TO BUY ANOTHER BOOK SHELF : Most Anticipated Spring 2018 Releases

We have been blessed with amazing book releases this January and February, and the book gods, otherwise known as authors and publishers, have even more in store for us! There are so many series conclusions and continuations coming out this spring and fall, not to mention ALL the contemporaries. Today, I’ll be discussing my most anticipated spring releases, i.e. books that are coming out from March to May.

Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff -March 13- I actually haven’t read the blurb yet for Obsidio, but from what I’ve gathered on social media, we’ll be reunited with our main cast from the first two books as well as some new faces. If you don’t plan on rereading Illuminae or Gemina beforehand like me, make sure to check out Book Series Recaps for a refresh.

I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman -March 27- I’ll read almost anything Gayle Forman writes, including this YA book about three teens in New York City.

Between March, April and May, I read a total of 22 books (!!!) and as spring turns right into summer, I thought it was time to consider my favorite reads of the season. I’ve talked about most of these books on the blog a lot already, so I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. If you want a recap of each book that I read this spring, I recommend going to my What I Read posts for March, April, and May—just click on these months to go directly to the post. For my favorite spring reads, I’ll be giving each novel my star rating along with my full review linked—there’s only one book with no review!

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman // 5/5 stars

No review for Radio Silence, but here’s my mini Goodreads review:

I ate this book in about a day and a half AND I’M IN LOVE. Frances reminded me so much of myself, having a ‘School Frances’ (smart, quiet girl who will go to a top university/college) vs ‘Real Frances’ (spends her free time on Youtube and Tumblr, does fan art, WEARS MONSTERS INC. LEGGINGS!!!). 

What else I loved:
-Her FRIENDSHIP with Aled. They had such a solid boy-girl friendship THAT DIDN’T TURN INTO ROMANCE WHAT SO EVER, WHATTTTTT?
-Frances’ mom. I loved that woman, between her Saturday movie nights, her support, her unicorn onesie, and her help hehehe.
-Side characters <3= I want Raine and Daniel on my side
-The Youtube/Radio Silence aspect– felt so REAL and current
-Diversity!!!!
-This book is almost 500 pages long, but it doesn’t feel like it all- absolutely flew through and wanted even MORE.

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord // 5/5 stars
