Hey guys! Today I’m going to be sharing my most anticipated releases of 2019. There are a lot of great books coming out this year, but as you’ll find out in another post, I’m prioritizing backlist titles this year. I only have about 30-40 2019 releases on my TBR, so hopefully, I’ll get to all of them. Anyway, let’s get into it!
Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen M McManus (Jan 8, 2019)
I absolutely loved her debut, and I’m really excited about this one as well! It’s another murder mystery, and the cover is similar to her first book.
The Wicked King by Holly Black (Jan 8, 2019)
If you read my favorite books of 2018 post, you know the first book in this series was my favorite book of last year, and this is my most anticipated release of 2019. I’ve heard some great things about this, but also not good things too like how it’ll rip my heart out, but we’ll just have to see.
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi (Jan 15, 2019)
I don’t normally read historical fiction, but this is one that should really cool. It’s a treasure hunt in Paris and the characters sound awesome!
Our Year of Maybe by Racheal Lynn Solomon (Jan 15, 2019)
I have an ARC of this, so I’m really excited to read this! It features kidney transplants, best friends, Jews, bi lead, bands, and dancers! Honestly, it sounds heartbreaking, but I’m still really eager to read it!
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo (Jan 29, 2019)
There hasn’t been much promo for this book, and there have been no ARCs, so I’m interested to see what’s going to happen in this book!
Last of Her Name by Jessica Khoury (Feb 26, 2019)
This is a retelling of Anastasia in space, and while there have been a lot of those in the past year, this one sounds really interesting! I also have a physical ARC of this one (my first one ever!) so I’m really hyped.
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte (Feb 26, 2019)
This is my second most anticipated release of 2019. It’s a standalone fantasy + mystery with queens and them dying and the world sounds so interesting and I can’t wait!
The Fever King by Victoria Lee (Mar 1, 2019)
This sounds too good to be true. It features magic, all queer characters, and politics. I cannot wait for it!
You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman (Mar 5, 2019)
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this. I have an ARC and I’m on the blog tour, and subject matter of academic pressure sounds perfect. It also features a Jewish main character and a gay relationship, so I’m really hyped for this.
Descendant of the Crane by Joan He (Apr 2, 2019)
This has been called a Chinese Game of Thrones, and it sounds really cool! I have an ARC of this and I’ll be getting to it very soon.
Wicked Saints by Emily A Duncan (Apr 2, 2019)
This is nothing like I’ve ever read before, and it sounds more adult than young adult, but regardless I’m really excited for it!
Finale by Stephanie Garber (May 7, 2019)
If you read my favorite books of 2018 post you’ll know that Caraval was my second favorite book of last year. I loved the dark, glittery world and the characters, and I’m really excited for the conclusion!
We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal (May 14, 2019)
To be honest, this is the first YA book I’m reading that is set in a middle eastern inspired country. It’s a lush fantasy that sounds really interesting, and I can’t wait for it!
