So a new year is quickly approaching, and I am absolutely stoked for all the wonderful releases the new year is going to bring. Hopefully I get to spend more time reading next year – I’ve really missed my regular fix of fiction.
I have to admit, a lot of the books being released in the next few months are going to be amazing. This list is sixty-five books long, and I know for a fact that as the year unravels, the number is only going to get bigger.
My aim for next year is to try and read every book on my lists. Yes, this sounds like an impossible challenge, and I’m probably letting myself in for something terrible – but let’s see how long it lasts.
Week 01 – Jan 1st – Jan 6th
So the first week of January brings us five new YA reads – a wide range of genre and themes. I’m lucky enough to have a sneak peak at The Similars, one of 2019’s hottest debut releases.
|Tue 1st||The Similars||Rebecca Hanover|
|Tue 1st||The Me I Meant to Be||Sophie Jordan|
|Thu 3rd||Evermore (Everless #2)||Sara Holland|
|Thu 3rd||Oh My Gods||Alexandra Sheppard|
|Thu 3rd||Outside||Sarah Ann Juckes|
Personally, I’m actually looking forward to all five of these releases. The only one I’m not one-hundred percent sure on, is Evermore by Sara Holland – purely because it’s fantasy and the second in a series. I’m going to attempt the first book, and if I like it, then I’ll be continuing with the new release on January 3rd.
The exciting thing is that The Similars, Oh My Gods and Outside are our first two debut author novels of the year! There’s a high standard to live up to, but I can see these ladies meeting the expectations.
Week 02 – Jan 7th – Jan 13th
Seventeen books are released this week, and quite honestly, I’m not sure about the compatibility of a lot of them with my personal reading preferences. However, I’m willing to give any book a try – so I hope you can too!
|Tue 8th||You Won’t See Me Coming (BA, #3)||Kristen Orlando|
|Tue 8th||Two Can Keep a Secret||Karen M. McManus|
|Tue 8th||The Wicked King (Folk of the Air, #2)||Holly Black|
|Tue 8th||The Girl King||Mimi Yu|
|Tue 8th||Slayer||Kiersten White|
|Tue 8th||In An Absent Dream (Wayward Ch, #4)||Seanan McGuire|
The first six books are already a pretty big deal, with debut author Mimi Yu’s The Girl King joining company with some pretty BIG young adult names!
|Tue 8th||White Stag||Kara Barbieri|
|Tue 8th||Even If I Fall||Abigail Johnson|
|Tue 8th||To Dream is to Die (Dead Dreamer, #1)||Sarah Lampkin|
|Tue 8th||Analiese Rising||Branda Drake|
|Tue 8th||Match Me If You Can||Tiana Smith|
|Tue 8th||A Sky For Us Alone||Kristin Russell|
Perhaps a lesser known bunch of releases, this set of six are more obscure, newer releases for newer authors. While only a few have grabbed my attention from this list, I’m looking forward to seeing whether the reviews correlate with the story.
|Tue 8th||When the Truth Unravels||RuthAnne Snow|
|Thu 10th||The Binding||Bridget Collins|
|Thu 10th||Blackberry and Wild Rose||Sonia Velton|
|Thu 10th||Whiteout||Gabriel Dylan|
The last four of these books are going to be interesting when I get my hands on them. I’m actually quite interested in reading these – with When the Truth Unravels and Blackberry and Wild Rose both being debut novels.
Week 03 – Jan 14th – Jan 20th
