January 2018 Releases

January marks the start of  new year and the start of a new reading challenge for me. Last year, my initial goal was 125 books, but when it was looking that I was going to pass that, I bumped it to 140.  This year, I think I’ll shoot for 100 books to keep it casual, since I will be graduating from college in May and moving into the big scary real world right after. Of course, if I end up working at a publishing company, which is the plan, I’ll be doing a lot of reading anyway.

While I read a LOT of recent releases, there aren’t that many books coming out in January that I’ll be scrambling to get ASAP. I may read them as they come to me, but I won’t be running out to Barnes and Noble that often.

Some of the books I am excited for this January though are S.T.A.G.S. by M.A. Bennett which is set at an English boarding school. I love a good boarding school novel. I’ve already read The Wife Between Us, but I highly recommend it if you love domestic noir books. I’ll also probably pick up the new book about Aaron Hernandez by James Patterson, because that’s an absolutely fascinating case, and should be a quick read.

Here are some of the most talked about books coming out in January to add to your TBR list.
