Back in December, I posted something on my Instagram story about how excited I was that there were no books coming out in 2019 that I was completely dying to read—it would give me a chance to catch up on all the unread books that have been sitting on my shelf for way too long.
Welp. January hit and I had to eat my words. There are SO many books scheduled to release this year that I am super duper pumped to read. I feel like I have to add new books to my TBR all the time. Here are some of those books, with links to their Goodreads pages/blurbs to find out more:
Release Date: March 5, 2019
So, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was my numbero uno favorite book of 2018 and I recently read and loved Maybe In Another Life as well, though that was a very different sort of book. Taylor Jenkins Reid is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, and as a result, I can’t wait for her newest release. Combine that with the fact that this book is supposed to focus on a fictional 60’s band and I loved the entirety of the history of rock and roll class I took last year, I’ve pretty much all but pre-ordered this book already.
Release Date: March 5, 2019
I really enjoyed Adeyemi’s debut novel last year, and am looking forward to seeing where she takes this series in the following books. I had a few minor issues with Children of Blood and Bone that lowered my rating to 4⭐ instead of 5⭐, but I have a gut feeling that this is going to turn into one of those series that gets better and better with each installment.
Release Date: TBD
I haven’t even read Thunderhead yet, but Scythe was so good I already know I need book 3 when it comes out. That’s all I have to say about this one.
Release Date: October 8, 2019
Non-Twilight-like vampires? The New Orleans underworld? A serial killer? I don’t have to know anything else to know this will be something I want to read. I’ve never read a book from Ahdieh before, but I’ve only ever heard good things about her work, and I figure if there’s any good time to pick up her books, it’s when she’s got a book as amazing as this one sounds coming out.
Release Date: TBD, but most likely October or November
This is quite possibly my most anticipated release for the year, and it doesn’t even have a solid release date yet or a cover or a fleshed out blurb. All I know is that Mackenzi Lee is one of my favorite authors and she could write random history facts on a dirty napkin and I would probably dig through a dumpster to find that napkin just to read them.
So yeah. I’m excited for this one.
Release Date: Nov. 5, 2019
The author of The Night Circus has a new book coming out (FINALLY) and I seriously couldn’t be more excited about this book. I don’t even have to know what it’s about to know that it will be mysterious and have an amazing setting and just enough magic to make the book itself magical. Plus, this book comes out right around my birthday, so it can be a birthday gift to myself!
What are some of your most anticipated releases of the year? Have they already come out yet (I know January had some good ones!)? Are any of these on your TBR? Let me know!
