This week our #BookishBloggersUnite tag is devoted to titles that are on our
TBR for the second half of 2018. Bookish Bloggers Unite came about when a group or bookish friends wanted to write about books together. This week our host is the delightful Bookish Bron so make sure you check out her post. Remember you can join in at any time by submitting your blog post through the linky on the host’s page.
So, what books am I excited about that I plan to read in the second half of this year. This is difficult because:
- Dammit, don’t make me pick! I get excited about a lot of stuff;
- As a mood reader, who knows what I will actually read during the rest of the year? My reading plans tend to be pretty flexible, and by flexible I’m talking about one of those super supple gymnasts that can turn themselves into a pretzel.
Here is a list of the books that i have the best of intentions to read this year and that I’m really stoked about.
(Note: I’m going to be posting really soon about my intended reads for July, which is Black History Month in the Great Land of Aus. As such I won’t talk about any of those titles now, even though I’m really jazzed about them, to save on doubling up.)
You must have been hiding under a rock if you haven’t heard of this one. Tomi Adeyemi’s debut novel has had some awesome press. (She is totally worth a follow on Instagram as well.)
Eurovision meets Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy? Yes please!
I’m very much looking forward to the sequel for All Systems Red. Murderbot is a delight.
A bunch of retelling of Asian myths and legends by Asian authors, this book is also getting some great reviews.
I also love a good Shakespeare retelling. This is the latest addition to the Hogarth Shakespeare series, and who better to have a go at Macbeth than creepy, murdery Jo Nesbo. (As in his writing is creepy and murdery.)
The events surrounding this book’s publication and the sudden capture of the culprit shortly thereafter put this on my TBR. This copy was gifted to me by one of my delightful Book Riot Insiders friends, and I am keen!
Okay, I know I should have read this one already, but the reading gods and goddesses have not been smiling on me over the last couple of weeks. So I’ll still totally stoked for my brain to be functioning enough for me to read this one.
What books are you excited about for the second half of the year? Are any of these on your list?
That’s a great list! I have been putting off Children of Blood and Bone, but it’s definitely on my to-be-read-probably-in-the-near-future list. I’m pretty intrigued by A Thousand Beginnings and Endings, too. I’ll be putting that one off as well. Happy reading!

aaaah so many good books! I had a feeling this topic was going to grow my tbr!
I have Children of Blood and Bone and am keen to read too. I am a bit to scared of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark though!
Thanks for joining in! xo
