2019 Book Releases I'm Looking Forward To


Today I wanted to share with you all some book releases I'm looking forward to in 2019 (how is 2019 just around the corner?!). 

I'm not usually one to make these kinds of posts - honestly, I'm often behind on book news, especially releases - but with a list that currently stands at ten I thought I'd write about these upcoming books that I'm excited about. 

I would love to read all ten of these in the new year, however, as a person who reads largely in paperback, I'll likely be waiting a little longer to pick some of these up... But keen and eager to read them nonetheless.

All title links will take you to Goodreads

MIDDLE GRADE
It is no secret that I love Emma Carroll's books - she writes middle grade historical fiction - and that she is an auto buy author of mine. Her newest release is a short story collection, set in WW2, in which she will be introducing new characters, but also returning to some of her of other works, which I'm really looking forward to. 

OUR CASTLE BY THE SEA BY LUCY STRANGE
Earlier this year I read Lucy Strange's debut novel - The Secret of Nightingale Wood - and was honestly in awe. Not only was it a stunning read that held me throughout, but it would be a contender as favourite book of the year, so of course when I heard she was releasing a new book I was all ears. From what I know of Our Castle by the Sea, it is a MG book set in WW2 with a female protagonist... It also has a really beautiful cover, much like her first release.

YOUNG ADULT
THE BOY WHO STEALS HOUSES BY C.G. DREWS
As a reader of Cait's blog (Paper Fury) for a good number of years now, I was keen to support her debut release of A Thousand Perfect Notes... And it was amazing! Strong characters, an emotion fuelled plot, little details that really made the story, and as a reader of Paper Fury there was Cait's writing stamp also. I loved it, and instantly knew I would auto buy her next release - The Boy Who Steals Houses.

WINTERWOOD BY SHEA ERNSHAW
I read The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw not too long ago - it is atmospheric, and enthralling, and the kind of book you find yourself wrapped up in. So of course, when I heard she had another book to be released in 2019, I was keen to hear more about it... I've actually been unable to find much out about it, other than the fact that it is to be a fantasy with a very short synopsis on Goodreads reading - '... an eerie forest deep in the snowy mountains, haunted by mystery and magic, where a boy thought dead suddenly returns.' I cannot wait... Except I have to, until at least autumn of next year.

ADULT
THE STARLESS SEA BY ERIN MORGENSTERN
Honestly, this is the book that gains the title of 'My Most Anticipated Book of 2019'. If, like me, you simply adored The Night Circus (an all time favourite book of mine), then I'm sure you're feeling the same way... And also a little nervous, because of expectation. I'm trying to not have expectations. But The Night Circus is phenomenal!!

WAKENHYRST BY MICHELLE PAVER
I have come to absolutely love Michelle Paver's ghost stories, and am looking forward to being able to enjoy another from her. I wish I heard more about her books... It was only by chance that I stumbled upon this release.

Writer of gripping mystery thrillers, Riley Sager is set to release another such title this coming summer. I've read both of his previous novels, and I'd say he has become an auto buy author of mine.

THE LOST MAN BY JANE HARPER
When I heard Jane Harper was releasing a new book, I was keen for another in the Aaron Falk series, however The Lost Man is a standalone and one I will pick up regardless. I do believe this title is already out in Australia, but set for a February 2019 release here in the UK... June 2019 for me, as I'll be wanting paperback.

SWEET SORROW BY DAVID NICHOLLS
I know very little of this book, having only heard about it earlier on this month, but I've loved a couple of other David Nicholls titles and would be keen to read this new release of his coming in summer 2019. I love the way that David Nicholls writes ordinary lives.

NONFICTION
THE PATH MADE CLEAR: DISCOVERING YOUR LIFE'S DIRECTION AND PURPOSE BY OPRAH WINFREY
I don't have much to say about this release, other than the fact that its one of those books I'm drawn to and feel like I need in my life.

What book releases are you looking forward to in 2019?

  5. I love when favorite authors have a new book coming out! I’m thinking really hard about how I want to approach new releases in 2019 because I have SO MANY unread books in my house. I think the new baby will make it easier to read from my shelves, but we shall see!

    1. YES - and there are so many this coming year for me. Haha!

      Good luck with figuring out how you're going to approach reading, book buying and all the things in the new year. I've been pondering this myself for the last couple of months, and think I'm in a good place now to head in to the new year.

      It'll be interesting to see if, and how, having two children changes the way in which read and consume books.

    1. After the success of The Night Circus, I definitely see The Starless Sea being one of THE book of 2019.

      Thank you Susie - and you!

  7. I feel like a terrible blogger. I haven’t looked at ANY 2019 releases. I’m still trying to catch up on books from years ago. I think I have a Michelle Paver book on my TBR list. I haven’t read that one, and now there’s a new one!
