Books I’m Looking Forward to in the Second Half of 2018

Hello! This is my second half most anticipated books that I am personally looking forward to the most. This is the longest post compared to my First Half because so many books that are coming out later for the rest of the year, I must read. I noticed that September and October this year is going to be *whew* a lot. 

I already did Winter 2017-2018, Spring 2018, and Summer 2018. Fall 2018 will come at the end of August. These posts are general and will have more than what you see in this post. These posts also have a synopsis so if you want to learn more, please check these links. 

There is a good mixture of Adult, Young Adult, and Middle Grade. If you know of a book that you think I’d like based on these books below, please let me know.

Note: I was planning on posting this last month but hey, at least, I’m posting this today!

      I wanted to read Vicious but I want to wait for Vengeful first so I can read back to back. I’m excited for her books for the rest of the year!
