I can’t wait to be done cleaning out my TBR… It’s so long that this series will take a while. I might start doing 20 books at a time instead of ten. Or maybe I’ll comprise a post about all the books I kick out of my TBR. I dunno. I’ll think about it later.
Regardless of what I’m going to do in the future, I’m excited to revisit these next 10 books in the list to see if they’ll make the cut.
Here are the rules to the “cleanse”:
- Choose the first 10 books in your TBR list.
- Read the blurb.
- Decide whether to keep it or “kick” it out of the list.
- Repeat with the next 10 books every week until you go through the whole list.
(All the blurbs were taken from Goodreads.)
If you’re anything like me, you are the last person to know about new releases and book news. I don’t have a lot of social media to keep up with the authors, and I don’t use the ones that I follow authors on that frequently. To be completely honest, it’s a lot to keep track of all the new releases and things that are going on so I decided to take some of my favorite and (I think) well-known YA authors and compile all their upcoming releases.
Some of the information I got off of posts on the authors’ social media or websites (which I’ll link in this post) and others I got off of Goodreads. I can’t guarantee that I will catch all the stories their working on but hopefully this will give you an overview of what to expect.
The authors I’m covering in this post are:
Cassandra Clare || Leigh Bardugo || Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff || Marie Lu
Sarah J. Maas || Tahereh Mafi|| Rainbow Rowell || Adam Silvera
Angie Thomas || Nicola Yoon
At the bottom of the post I put a timeline-ish thing that gives you an overall look on all the authors and what they’re releasing in case you don’t want to read through all the stuff I wrote.
I like books. I like owning physical books, but because my wallet hates me when I splurge on books, I try to be very selective of which books I buy. But when certain authors release a new book, I’m like:
I have no self-control. I hope I’m not the only one who does this.
It’s 2018, and a new year means a whole new load of books to be excited for!
I’ve decided to compile a list of my most anticipated releases of 2018 because I normally don’t do monthly anticipated releases.

(There are some spoilers as some of these books are part of a series. I put spoiler warnings before their synopses and provided a drop down so the summaries are hidden unless you click on the drop down.)
Spring is already here. Winter seemed a bit too short for me. I don’t know about you guys, but living in the southern states of the US means that our winters are short and are summers are really long. Heck, spring weather started coming in the middle of last month.
I don’t have a lot of anticipated releases this spring so I decided to just compile them all into one post.

The movie How to Train Your Dragon was amazing. The story of unlikely friendship is so cute. Plus, Toothless is adorable. I mean, look at that face! Who wouldn’t fall in love with that?

Everyone booklover has their dream author panel containing their favorite authors. I am no exception. To be completely honest, I spend 50% of the time I’m awake daydreaming, and the majority of those dreams are about meeting my favorite authors.
Everbrite has this ongoing project that help people find events that they may be interested in, including things like author panels and book signings. When they talked about building your own dream author panel, I had to make one of my own. You can check out their website at https://www.eventbrite.com/l/conferences/.
October wasn’t a good reading month for me. Maybe these November releases will get me through my reading slump I suspect I’m in right now.

One of the things I love the most about reading is fangirling over OTPs. If you’re not familiar with fangirl lingo, OTP stands for One True Pairing. You believe that this couple was born for each other. You might go as far as saying that the fate of humanity lies on whether or not they stays together in the end of the story. Regardless, you believe that this couple is meant for each other.
I have a few OTPs. Actually, scratch that. I have a lot of OTPs. However, I only have a couple of couples (cringe-worthy pun intended) that I’m hardcore about defending and think about almost every single day.
Just a fair warning: there’s a lot of fangirling ahead so be prepared.
Note: All the artists’ Tumblr pages are linked to their respected artwork. I added links to the pictures (so you can click on the picture to go to their Tumblr page) as well as provided the links out to the side in case something goes wrong. Please check out their pages because they’re amazing artists as well as wonderful people. None of the artwork in this post is mine.
I can’t believe April is already over! It seemed as though it was just yesterday when March was ending. Seriously. How come this month went by so fast? At least that means I’m closer to finishing school for the year. XD
I think I had a pretty decent blogging month (which says something for someone who procrastinates on everything). I posted a lot more than I expected, and read more books than I thought I had time for.
