As I sit here with a giant stack of unread books in my room that are calling my name, I’m going to share the books I am most excited about that are releasing next year. The TBR pile is endless.
But in all seriousness, there are so many books coming out next year that I cannot wait to get my hands on.
The Wicked King by Holly Black (January 8th)
The Cruel Prince remains one of the best books I read this year- it had politics, fae, and the promise of a haters-to-lovers romance. Obviously I am ready for the sequel.
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi (January 15th)
This is my most anticipated release by far, because it’s ROSHANI CHOKSHI. Everything I’ve read of hers has blown me away and I’m sure this is going to be just as amazing.
Stain by A.G. Howard (January 15th)
I read a chapter sampler of this and I want the rest. That is all.
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte (February 26th)
I heard about this at YALLFest and the title alone is enough to make me want to read this.
Lovely War by Julie Berry (March 5th)
I adored Julie’s The Passion of Dolssa (if you haven’t read it, you should, but be prepared for an emotional roller coaster). This one is a love story set amidst both World Wars and it’s told from the perspective of the goddess Aphrodite.
Sherwood by Meagan Spooner (March 29th)
I just found out about this as I write this post and it’s a ROBIN HOOD RETELLING. YES. It’s also Meagan Spooner, who has some beautiful prose.
Midnight Beauties by Megan Shepherd (August 13th)
I will be trying to get an ARC of this if possible, because August is too far away. Grim Lovelies was magnificent.
Also, from the synopsis, I think there’s going to be an arranged marriage. Therefore I need it.
Renegades #3 (we do not yet have an official title) by Marissa Meyer (November 5th)
I am reading Archenemies right now and IT’S AMAZING. Renegades was a bit of a letdown but I am loving book two in the series and expect a major cliffhanger.
That’s it so far, but I’m sure there are a bunch of others I just haven’t discovered yet.
(I did not include any ARCs I received at YALLFest in this list, even though I am excited to read many of them.)
What books are you looking forward to in 2019?
