Hello! Just a few weeks left of December and 2018 so I thought it would be a good time to look ahead to 2019 and some of my most anticipated reads. I am so ready for my heart to be put through the wringer with some of these books. Click each title to find its Goodreads page and I’ll be listing my thoughts on each book as well 🙂
Title: The Gilded Wolves
Author: Roshani Chokshi
Publication Date: January 15, 2018 by Wednesday Books
Thoughts: “It’s heist day” I think Roshani has some of the most beautiful prose I’ve ever read and I can’t wait to finally devour this book. This cover is stunning.
Title: White Stag
Author: Kara Barbieri
Publication Date: January 8, 2018 by Wednesday Books
Thoughts: “young girl finds herself becoming more monster than human” SIGN ME UP! This sounds like the perfect winter read.
Title: Dragon Pearl
Author: Yoon Ha Lee
Publication Date: January 15, 2018 by Rick Riordan Presents
Thoughts: I loved Aru, and Storm Runner. So I’m super pumped for Dragon Pearl. There’s Fox spirits and Korean Mythology.
Author: Laura Sebastian
Publication Date: February 5, 2018 by Delacorte Press
Thoughts: Not going to lie. I read Ash Princess in like October 2017. So I don’t really remember all that happened, but I do remember how intense the ending was. So I guess I need to reread it before Lady Smoke comes out.
Title: Courting Darkness
Author: Robin Lafevers
Publication Date: February 5, 2019 by HMH books for Young Readers
Thoughts: I really liked Grave Mercy. Yes I know I need to read the second and third. But I can’t wait for this new Duology. Let me read all the books about assassin nuns.
Title: Crown of Feathers
Author: Nicki Pau Preto
Publication Date: February 12, 2019 by Simon Pulse
Thoughts: This cover, though. A girl disguised as a boy while riding a Phoenix. I’m so in. This book has been getting a lot of buzz. So I’m really hoping I enjoy it.
Title: The Fever King
Author: Victoria Lee
Publication Date: March 1, 2019 by Skyscape
Thoughts: This cover is so pretty I could cry. This is one of my top anticiapated books. Is it gay? Political? I freaking hope so.
Title: Once and Future
Author: Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy
Publication Date: March 5, 2019 by Little, Brown and Company
Thoughts: A genderbent Arthurian tale. This cover. Amy Rose Capetta. Do I need to say more?
Title: The Waking Forest
Author: Alyssa Wees
Publication Date: March 12, 2019 by Delacorte Press
Thoughts: This book sounds so wonderfully creepy. It just sounds like Labyrinth and I’m ready. A creepy fairy tale is all I want to read in 2019.
Title: The Raven’s Tale
Author: Cat Winters
Publication Date: April 16, 2019 by Amulet Books
Thoughts: I.Love.Edgar. Allen. Poe. So a retelling about Poe is always on my list of books I need to read. Poe and his muse. PLUS CAT FREAKING WINTERS!!! Sold.
Title: The Devouring Gray
Author: Christine Lynn Herman
Publication Date: April 2, 2019 by Disney- Hyperion
Thoughts: This cover is one of the spookiest things I’ve ever seen. Like the temporary cover did not mentally prepare me for this. Stranger Things meets the Raven Cycle. Is there anything else we need in this world?
Author: Amanda Foody
Publication Date: April 30, 2019 by Inkyard Press
Thoughts: Ace of Shades is a book that was iffy for me until the very end when all the stuff happened. So now I’m pumped for King of Fools because there’s so many questions I have.
Well there we have it! You notice some books missing but this was for books I have yet to read. My real anticipated list from Jan-Apr has quite a lot of books on them so I’m going to be very busy the first half of the year and I’m excited! What are some books you can’t wait to read in 2019?
