Top Ten Books We're Looking Forward to In 2018

We here at The Broke and the Bookish hope you had a very lovely Christmas yesterday (if you celebrate), and that you made memories with your loved ones! 

Just a reminder: Starting on January 16th Top Ten Tuesday will be moved to Jana's blog, That Artsy Reader Girl, as The Broke and the Bookish will be closing our doors (for now). 

We've loved blogging together for the past 8.5 years, and we've loved getting to know our fellow bloggers through this feature. Thank you for your support and friendship. We'll all still be on social media and some of us have our own blogs, so you'll still see us shouting our love of books! We'll post a more official goodbye with links and social media handles so you know where to find us, but we thought we should get the word out as soon as possible so there is no confusion.

We've got just a few days left in 2017, and then we wipe the slate clean and start over again. Can you believe it!? What books are you looking forward to in 2018? We're sharing our choices today. :) 

Jamie's Picks

1. The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert -- definitely one of my most anticipated debuts

2. The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton -- I feel like I have been waiting for this book since it was announced!! NEEEEED!!

3. Save The Date by Morgan Matson -- Morgan Matson is one of my all time fave authors and I CANNOT WAIT!!!!

Julia's Picks

I haven't been following the new releases like I have in previous years... so I really just want ONE of these books to come out next year... or have an official date:

4. Doors of Stone by Patrick Rothfuss 

5. Winds of Winter by George RR Martin


Lauren's Picks

6. Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris: I loved the author’s other thrillers and I can’t wait to be on the edge of my seat reading this one!

7. Zero Day by Ezekiel Boone: This is the third book in a series about SPIDERS. Yeah. I’ve been bitten by a brown recluse spider a few times and once it was bad. As in my tissue started dying and had to be cut out. I don’t much care for spiders these days. So why am I reading about them? I have no clue. Except the plot has left me wanting more.

8. The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian: I love this author’s novels, so this is just an automatic TBR for me.

Jana's Picks

9. The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis-Graves: I love Tracey, and I can't wait for this next book of hers!

10. Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson: It just sounds amazing, ok?


  1. Morgan's book made my list too!! It sounds and looks adorable. Cannot wait to read that one. :)

  2. I read a galley of The Flight Attendant and it is SO GOOD.

  3. The Hazel Wood and Zero Day are on my list as well!


  4. I want the Winds of Winter SO BAD!

  5. sorry to see you go away from the blogosphere. I hope you will be back soon!

  6. I really want to start the Song of Ice and Fire series, but I'd rather wait until all the books are out, and the show is finished. At this point I'm starting to get the feeling that GRRM is probably mostly finished writing his series and is just going to have the book release after he dies because so many people keep bugging him and asking him to finish his series before he dies. It's probably getting on his nerves.

  7. Wow! Haven't had much time to check in this year and then I hear the sad news one of my favorites is closing. Will definitely miss you and glad to hear Top Ten Tuesday will live on.

    Wishing you all the best.

  8. THE BELLES in on my list today, too. I forgot about THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT. I used to adore Bohjalian, but he's actually been hit and miss for me lately. I'm hoping THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT is a big hit!

  9. Dance of Thieves sounds soo good and I'm ridiculously excited for The Belles!

  10. Wished all of you the best over at my blog this week: http://thebookconnectionccm.blogspot.com/2017/12/another-blog-bites-dust.html I'm sure you'll be successful in all you do.

  11. PLEEEEEASE Winds of Winter! Let this be the year. So excited for Save The Date and The Belles too!
