THE PREORDERS OF 2018: WHY DO I KEEP DOING THIS?

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with a list of the books I will be preordering in 2018! And yes, I have already preordered them all because I don’t want to have to do it later in the year and forget about them. Also, they were on sale and I’m a sucker (what’s new).

Okay, so preface, I buy the majority of my books on Bookdepository and I have only ever preordered books on the same site. I also live in Australia so naturally, if I buy something outside of the county it takes a tad longer to get to me. THAT BEING SAID, the whole point of a preorder is that it arrives on the day of release, so I’m allowed to be mad.

Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children, #3)

BENEATH THE SUGAR SKY

STATUS: Released on January 9th, came on the 12th

Beneath The Sugar Sky is one of my most anticipated releases for the year, so you can imagine how mad/ upset I was when it didn’t arrive on the release day. BTSS was the 3rd book I preordered on Bookdepository, and I’ll be honest, none of the three books has ever come on the day of release. It’s bad, but I’ve heard of people who preordered their books and didn’t receive it until weeks after the release, so maybe I shouldn’t complain as much??

 

My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies, #2)

MY PLAIN JANE

STATUS: Releases on June 26th

My Lady Jane came out in 2016 and it was AMAZING and so, of course, I’m excited for the second novel. I mean the three books featuring in this post are my top 3 anticipated releases for the year and I AM HYPED! My Plain Jane is based around Jane Eyre and I’m super excited and I’m hoping this book will also push me to finally read the classic novel. I mean, I’ve been planning to get to Jane Eyre for years but then my senior year got in the way and also it’s a pretty chunky book.

 

Escaping from Houdini (Stalking Jack the Ripper #3)

ESCAPING HOUDINI

STATUS: Releases on September 18th

Yeah, is anyone even surprised?

Okay, you guys know that I love this series. Like, WE KNOW ELLYN, YOU’RE OBSESSED WITH TWO BADASS AMATEUR MORTICIANS AND YOU’RE AN ACTUAL FRUITLOOP.

Basically, earlier this year I completely fell in love with Kerri Maniscalco’s writing and her characters. I love this series and it’s really shown me just, what types of books I really enjoy: gore and mystery.

  1. I don’t tend to order from Book Depository but whenever I do, the books always take ages to arrive. I think that’s just the hazard of ordering from BD because you never know whether the books will get to you on time or not.

    I’ve got a couple of books on pre-order at the moment and the one I’m most excited for is Toil and Trouble: 16 Tales of Women and Witchcraft which comes out at the end of August.

    1. Honestly, at this point, the only reason I use Book Depository is because it’s cheaper than buying instore and the shipping is free. But, sometimes I really question whether it’s worth it because of the wait time.

      Toil & Trouble sounds fantastic! I am not much into anthologies but I’m really hoping I’ll find a good one this year! I had no idea it was coming out so late, it sounds so good!

      1. Yeah, that’s why I use it too although mainly when I want books in French or Spanish as it has a decent collection.

        I don’t read many anthologies but it has witchcraft so I can’t ignore it! I am a sucker for anything related to witchcraft!

    1. Oh my gosh, nice!! How many sequels does CC have coming out this year? There are quite a few, right? And Sarah J. Mass, so many big books, you’ll have your hands full! Where do you order your books? Locally or online?

      1. Online as an international blogger I don’t have much in my local bookstores unfortunately. But when i’m in England or the US I go at Waterstone, B & N and every small shop that I find πŸ˜‰

    1. Yess, I’m succeeding at life, then! I love Staking Jack The Ripper and I definitely talk about it too much! But I just love it soo much???
      Yes, I love the Wayward Children series, it’s such a different series with fantastic social commentary in each book and I love it (totally re-readable btw)!

    1. You should definitely read a few reviews or make sure you know that it’s not as action-packed as some people seem to go in thinking it is, It’s more of a murder mystery, whereas book 3 is an action adventure.
      It is an amazing series and I really enjoy it, and hope you do too! ❀️ ❀️

  2. I hardly ever pre-order books, but when I do, I always preorder at my local bookstore. They can preorder the book for me while I still support them! It’s so cute because the lovely lady that works in the bookshop is always so happy when I come with another pre-order request πŸ™‚

    1. Aww, that’s so nice – I usually only preorder online because my local store is too expensive. I always feel bad when I don’t preorder from them, but I have to prioritise other things first, unfortunately.
