    This is an amazing list. I haven’t heard of a lot of them so definitely going to look into them. I already have The Cruel Prince, Heart of Iron, You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone and Reign of the Fallen prordered hahaha. I have an ARC of The Belles and I’m planning on getting to that one ASAP!

    Happy new year!! Wishing you all the best for 2018 ❤ ❤
    This is such an incredible list, there are so many books being released, I feel like… well, I KNOW I will have a hard time keeping up, haha. You know The Belles is the book I am the MOST excited for, but I so want to read You'll Miss Me When I am Gone, American Panda, Save the date, the way you make me feel. SO MANY BOOKS ❤

      Happy new year to you too, Marie!!! ❤ ❤ Thank you very much, I wish you the same too, hope all your dreams come true this year (or most of them since both of us are too perfectionist for this to happen).
      SAMEE! I was thinking the same as I was putting up this list and there are so many other books that are coming up later this year and probably not listed – it's going to break us.
      I can't wait for you to read You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone, I want a live text update 😛

    Happy New Year! ❤️
    Quite a few books from here on my list, yay! I’m excited for all of them, even though I will have time for hardly any…?! 😅 I want to read Blood Water Paint, Kasie West’s looks nice and fluffy as usual and A Thousand Beginnings And Endings sounds exciting. Aaagh, so much for keeping my list small 😬

      Happy new year to you too! ❤
      I know what you mean, my exams are coming up in January/February and I will be taking a complete hiatus from reading and usually after my exams are over, there's a period when I can't read for the love of god (a week, at least).
      Blood Water Paint sounds amazing, completely amazing!! ❤ Hahaha, I know the struggle!

      Ioanaaa, we’re not planning your murder, just the murder of your wallet, most probably! 😛
      AHhh, I remembered now about A Thousand Perfect Notes, I couldn’t get into Cassandra Clare’s books for the love of god (don’t hate meee).
      Hahaha, I know what you mean, I’m getting anxiety only thinking about all these releases. Maybe I shouldn’t have written this post, now I’ll look back and worry about all these unread releases.

    I love this list! OMG. Some of these I haven’t heard of yet and will definitely be adding them to my tbr. I am seriously shaking right now because I didn’t know Naomi Novik had a new book coming out.
