8 YA Fantasy I Want To Read In 2018

June 18, 2018

YA Fantasy is probably my favourite genre of all. I read it the most but there are still a fair few books that people are shocked I haven't read and some I just really want to read. I'm going to try and check some of those off my list this year.

Sabriel by Garth Nix

I've lost count of the number of people that have been horrified that I haven't read this series yet. I mean honestly so am I. I own the entire series and I just haven't got to them yet! It has everything that I adore in a series. A school, magic and a mystery our character has to unravel in order to save her loved ones. I imagine across the series the world will expand and the plot will thicken. I'm very excited to get to this series eventually.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Wintersong by S Jae-Jones

This is a retelling of both the Labyrinth and Goblin Market. Two thing I absolutely adore. I think I've watched Labyrinth about five or six times at this point and Goblin Market is one of my most favourite poems. Our main character adores music, but feels like the chance to follow her dream is slipping away. Stuck helping look after the family in she sees no way to follow her passion. Until her younger sister is taken by The Goblin King, a being she'd only ever heard stories of before but they had entranced her.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Eragon by Christopher Paloini

Please don't crucify me. I saw the film okay. I know vague things about the book but I understand that there is hardly any similarities between the two. Eragon finds a blue stone which turns out to be a dragon egg, something that most thought they would never see again. With this revelation his life is thrust into an age old war that he and his dragon must fight in. I'm excited, I love dragons.

5. Poison Study by Maria V Snyder

Yet another book series I have received so much stick for, for not having read. Again, I know I'm going to love this series. Yelena is about to be executed. Then she's given a choice become the food taster for the King and risk death every day or simply be executed. She chooses to become the for taster and is thrown into a world of political intrigue, struggles with navigating court politics and if forced once again to make a choice.

Wicked Lovely by Marissa Marr

I know nothing about this series, absolutely nothing but something about it really attracted my attention. I'm 90% sure there's something about fae but I want to keep a bit of mystery surrounding this one.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

2. Hardbacks

I get real ACOTAR vibes with this one but with a twist. I'm so ready to read this one. From what I gather in this world the fae are unable to create and so commission humans to make things for them. Our main character, Isobel is a very talented artist and is paid to paint a portrait of the Autumn Prince but makes a fatal mistake and paints human emotion into his eyes, which is considered a weakness and puts his position in jeopardy.

The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Hades and Persephone? YAAAAAAAAY.

That is all.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

2. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

This series has just wrapped up so what a perfect time to marathon the entire thing. I know I'll love it as its Roman empire inspired. This follows two characters from very different worlds and with very different perspectives that are forced together in the most difficult time. I'm so excited to see how this series develops.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Those are the YA Fantasy Novels I want to read in 2018.

Do you want to read any of these?

Or are there some others?

Thank-you for reading,

    I’ve only read Eragon and An Ember in the Ashes and in both cases I didn’t want to continue with the series. I also really need to read Sabriel and Wintersong. I hear such good things about them and I do own them.
    Good luck with getting to all of these!
