15 Books I Want to Read in 2018

2018 books

At the end of each year, I share the books that I had the pleasure of reading and then publish a list of books I hope to get my hands on in the upcoming year. My last post was about the books I read in 2017 & this is all about the ones I want to read in 2018.

As you can see, I’m a little obsessed with Brene Brown. My therapist recommended reading her, as she talks a lot about female empowerment and vulnerability. As I’m writing my second book, I really need that sort of encouragement. Aside from her, I hope to dabble in a lot of non-fiction and try to get into poetry. I normally really dislike poetry, just can’t get into it, but Sabrina Beniam popped onto my newsfeed with a wonderful reading of a poem about anxiety. So, of course, I had to add her book to my list when I found out she was published.

  1. The Power of Vulnerability, Brene Brown
  2. I Thought It Was Just Me, Brene Brown
  3. Daring Greatly, Brene Brown
  4. Braving the Wilderness, Brene Brown
  5. The Hate U Give, Angie Thomas
  6. Solo, Kwame Alexander
  7. Depression, and Other Magic Tricks, Sabrina Beniam
  8. The Sun and Her Flowers, Rupi Kaur
  9. Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong—and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story, Angela Saini
  10. Jane Austen at Home, Lucy Worsley
  11. Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America
  12. We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy, Ta-Nehisi Coates
  13. Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between, Lauren Graham
  14. Shaken, Kerry Connelly
  15. The Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis

I’d love to know what your 2018 reads are! Drop a comment and maybe I’ll add the book to my Goodreads account!

  1. I’m so impressed that you’ve already come up with a list for 2018! I usually just read whatever strikes me as interesting, but I’ll definitely have to check out some of these books 🙂

  2. The Hate U Give is on my list too – I’m a children’s librarian and I’ve heard lots of good things. I really enjoyed Kwame Alexander’s Crossover so I might have to give this new one a shot too.


  3. I’m still putting my list together, but some are “The Midnight Watch” and “A Murder in Time.” Loved seeing your list of what you hope to read in the new year!


  4. I may have to try out Brene Brown! I’m definitely trying to read more this coming year, but I have no books on my list right now!
