Books I'm Looking Forward To Reading

Over at The Broke and the Bookish, this week's Top Ten Tuesday is 'Books I'm Looking Forward to In 2018'. I'm listing books I will/might be reading soon.

Books I might read

01/ The rules of magic by Alice Hoffman [link] – I've been a fan of Hoffman's books for a long while but I haven't read any new ones that I like lately but perhaps this new one will be something I would like. I don't like prequels or sequels especially when the original book (Practical Magic) is perfectly fine by itself but this one I don't mind.

02/ The disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy [link] – I read another book (Of things gone astray by Janina Matthewson) with a similar theme that I love and so I thought I might love this as well.

03/ The polar bear explorers' club by Alex Bell [link] – it's an adventure through frozen lands which I like the idea but I'll probably be disappointed but perhaps I'll read it anyway.

04/ My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows and Brodi Ashton [link] – it's a new take on Jane Eyre and I like Jane Eyre, plus humor, honestly, people should write more humor into their books.

05/ The forbidden library series by Django Wexler [link] – I really want to read an adventure set in a library or at least has something to do with books, I read a few and I didn't like them but perhaps I'll like this series.

Books I will read

06/ The beast's heart by Leife Shallcross [link] – it's a retelling of 'beauty & the beast' which you know is my favorite fairytale and so I'm always up for reading another retelling even if it will disappoint me again.

07/ Cress and Winter – the 3rd & 4th book of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer [link] – I have read Cinder and love that. I read Scarlet and it was just okay but I like the series & so I'm going to finish it.

08/ Shadow weaver by MarcyKate Connolly [link] – I love Connolly's previous two books (Monstrous & Ravenous) & so I'm looking forward to this one even though I have no idea what's it really about except the part about a girl and her shadow.

09/ A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Edited by Ellen Oh & Elsie Chapman [link] – fairytales, myths, folklores by 15 authors I've never read before, I want to read just to see how these authors will tell these tales.

10/ Shadows on the moon by ZoĆ« Marriott [link] – actually, I have started this book months ago but somehow never got to finishing it. I really like the setting of Japan, I like the idea of Cinderella having magic and the author did wrote one of my favorite Beauty & the Beast retelling (Barefoot on the wind), lots of winning combination so why haven't I finished reading this? I'm not really sure but I'll probably know when I get to the end.
