Top Ten Tuesday – Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2019

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2019.  This was a hard topic, but only in the sense that it’s impossible to narrow down to just ten books that I’m super excited to read between now and June.  I was able to narrow down to 13 and that’s the best I could do.  I have a couple of sequels, The Wicked King and Children of Virtue and Vengeance, that I’m very excited about, as well as new books from several of my authors like Leigh Bardugo and Brigid Kemmerer.  I also included a couple of debuts that I think are going to be amazing, We Hunt the Flame and Descendant of the Crane.  As you can also see, my reading tastes are eclectic as always, with my most anticipated reads being a mix of fantasy, historical fiction, thrillers, and even a romance.

Happy Reading everyone!  I can’t wait to read all of your most anticipated lists!

    So many amazing books Suzanne! I think I have most of these on my 2019 TBR as well. Despite all the mess between Tomi and Nora, I’m so excited for Children of Virtue and Vengeance. I absolutely loved Children of Blood and Bone! One of the stand out books of 2018 for me. I think On The Come Up is a given, if you read young adult and it’s not on your TBR, you probably need to reassess your life choices frankly. I can’t wait for all the 2019 releases, gimme all the books! ♡♡
