The only reason I’m making this post is honestly because I can’t wait to reread it at the end of next year and make a “did they meet my expectations” post. HA.
But honestly I’m so excited for all the new releases this year! I’m really excited for the ones I know about – and the ones I don’t know about yet.
The new year just opens so many possibilities, and I can’t wait to explore them with you!
Now let’s get on with it.
Make sure to click on the pictures to open Goodreads in a new tab! You’ll find the synopsis for the books there. But beware of spoilers if this is the second book in a series you haven’t read/want to read!
*in no particular order*
THE WORLD OF THRONE OF GLASS BY SARAH J. MAAS
First things first! The World of Throne of Glass, supposedly coming out September 3rd 2019, is the only hope I have in my life right now. I’ve finished Kingdom of Ash, and now that it’s done I just don’t know what to do with my life anymore. I can’t believe it’s over?
Side note: if you haven’t read Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, I 100% recommend it!!! I mean I’m obviously way too obsessed I even made an entire fandom account for it…
So yeah basically now I’m just waiting for the time to go by so I can READ THIS BOOK AND FINALLY GET ANSWERS AND MORE FROM THE COUPLES AND THEIR LIVES AND THEIR KIDS AND THE KINGDOM AND what the hell happened to Nox AND I JUST NEED TO KNOW OKAY. I DON’T THINK I CAN LIVE WITHOUT GETTING MORE OF THESE CHARACTERS.
But also? When we finish reading this “book” (it’s more of an encyclopaedia of the world), it’s going to be over for good. Yeah. I know. Me too.
CRESCENT CITY BY SARAH J. MAAS
Okay now that I’m all emotional, we can get to the second Sarah J. Maas book on this list. This book im seriously excited for, even though I’m really scared to be disappointed by it. Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses was so amazing, I’m not sure anyone could ever come with something as good as that (some came pretty damn close though)… But then again it’s Queen Maas we’re talking about.
So it’s coming out in fall 2019 I think?? Can’t wait!!!
KING OF SCARS BY LEIGH BARDUGO
Next up is… King of Scars by other queen Queen Leigh Bardugo!!! Honestly I am SO HYPED for this??!! I absolutely loved Six of Crows, and the Grisha trilogy was pretty pretty good. But. BUT THIS IS A BOOK ABOUT NIKOLAI. And I LOVE NIKOLAI. SO MUCH. I just can’t wait any longer for this book!!!!
Also… this is labelled as “The Nikolai Duology #1” and I might just cry.
Coming out January 29th!!!!!!!
THE WICKED KING BY HOLLY BLACK
Okay so I might have cheated a little bit for this one because my friend gave me an ARC (advanced reader copy) so I’ve already read it but… AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!! No spoilers of course it comes out January 8th (THAT’S IN 2 DAYS WHAT) so I won’t say anything more than this book was everything I expected and I CANNOT wait one more year for the third one! That cliffhanger? OOF.
If you’ve read it come talk to me it’s been a while but I’m still not over it.
CHILDREN OF VIRTUE AND VENGEANCE BY TOMI ADEYEMI
THIS. Oh god this. I read the first book a week(ish) ago and THERE’S A REVIEW COMING (actually it’s already written but I wanted to post this first haha). BUT I NEED THIS BOOK? It’s coming out March 5th so I won’t have to wait long but still!!! I’m so hyped!!!!
COURT OF LIONS BY SOMAIYA DAUD
For this one, I couldn’t find a cover or anything like that so this is the cover of the first book Mirage. I got this book in my owlcrate subscription (it’s really good, totally recommend! Both the book and the subscription) and god I LOVED IT! This is such an underrated book, but it’s absolutely amazing! I’ve been hyping it up a lot on instagram and seeing people reading it because I recommended it makes me SO HAPPY. You won’t regret reading this, I promise! And I can’t wait to read the second books! Sadly no precise release date yet they just say 2019… Hopefully it’ll be soon!
A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY BY BRIGID KEMMERER
I absolutely cannot wait 23 more days for this book. The release date is January 29th, and you bet my stupid ass pre-ordered it. All I have to say it IT BETTER COME IN TIME. People on instagram won ARCs for it and have been HYPING IT UP LIKE CRAZY. And I can’t wait anymore. I can’t wait to binge read it and be mind-blown. I just can’t.
Just read the synopsis for this. Click on the picture and read it, and tell me you’re not excited as hell for this? AND it’s a Beauty and the Beast retelling? TAKE MY MONEY.
THIS COMES OUT THE SAME DAY AS KING OF SCARS. *EXTERNAL VERY LOUD SCREAMING* TRIP TO BARNES&NOBLE???? I pre-ordered it but WHATEVER.
SHADOW ME BY TAHEREH MAFI
I can’t wait for this novella because I think Kenji is the light of these books (even if I’m married to Aaron) and totally deserves a novella. Gimme gimme gimme!!!
AND I can’t wait to cry again because of the end of Restore Me. FuN 🙂
Also I just realised it comes out the same day as Children of Virtue and Vengeance. Trip to Barnes&Noble #2?
DEFY ME BY TAHEREH MAFI
SKSKS this is coming out almost a month after Shadow Me and I’m pretty sure I’ll die a little during that month. Seriously, the end of Restore Me KILLED ME. Why do you do this to me 😦
THE RED SCROLLS OF MAGIC BY CASSANDRA CLARE
Queen of Air and Darkness KILLED ME TOO so I’ll take anything I can get right now. AND A BOOK ABOUT MALEC? THIS COULDN’T GET ANY BETTER. Malec is amazing and hopefully this book will heal the hole QOAAD left in my soul and my heart… But of course it will… IT’S MALEC.
I have so much hope for this!!! I can’t wait!!!
Also I realised again that since this is coming out on April 2nd, it’s coming out on the same day as Defy Me!! What!!! Trip to Barnes&Noble #3?
OKAY. This is the last book. Honestly, I’m excited for this one because I loved Caraval so much but Legendary has been sitting on my shelf for some time now and I can’t bring myself to read it? I’ve really got to, I feel like once I do I’ll regret I didn’t do it sooner.
(I just checked it out on goodreads to put the link and almost spoiled myself… BE CAREFUL!)
Anyway! Really have to read Legendary first… but I’m still excited!!!
Coming out May 7th!!!
And this concludes the list for my anticipated 2019 reads! There are so many amazing things on there I can’t wait to read them and if you haven’t read the series mentioned, I recommend all of them!!!
And plus I feel like as soon as I post this I’ll remember around 10000 books I’m excited to read this year, but that’s just how my brain functions? Love it.
I’m actually really excited (AND FREAKING MIND-BLOWN? HOW CAN SO MANY BOOKS ON MY LIST COME OUT ON THE SAME DAY? THAT’S THREE PAIRS ALREADY!!!) that some of the books are coming out on the same day because it means I can just go to Barnes&Noble and come back with a few exciting books hehe :))
What are YOUR most anticipated 2019 reads? Tell me all about them.
