Before writing this posts I only had a couple of books on my most anticipated list so I jumped onto to Goodreads to see what else was coming out in 2019 and now that list has tripled in size! 2019 sounds like an amazing year for any YA fantasy and contemporary lover so I for one am buzzing with excitement! Let me know in the comments what books you’re looking forward to the most!
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo – My most anticipated book of 2019, because not only am I in love with Leigh Bardugo and the wonderful world she has created but I’m also in love with the young and mysterious Nikolai Lantsov who is one of my bookish husbands! loved him in the Shadow and Bone trilogy so the fact that he’s got an entire book dedicated to him is a dream come true!
Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan – What instantly drew me to this book was the cover and then after the synopsis, it made its way on to my evergrowing TBR list!
In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light!
Again, but Better by Christine Riccio – I’ve been watching Christine on Booktube for a couple of years now I always get excited when a Booktuber I follow fulfills their dream of writing a book! I love the concept of this story and I look forward to seeing if it lives up to expectations!
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte – Another cover and synopsis that has me eagerly awaiting this books release date! After reading the reviews on Goodreads I’m positive that I’m going to love this book and that it’s going to be one heck of an adventure.
A divided nation. Four Queens. A ruthless pickpocket. A noble messenger. And the murders that unite them.
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – I’ve seen this book everywhere and 2019 is seriously killing it at the cover game as all the books I’ve mentioned so far are stunning, but this one is easily my favourite and I need it on my shelves asap! By the sounds of it, this is going to be an epic fantasy that I’m guaranteed to love!
A world divided.
A queendom without an heir.
An ancient enemy awakens.
The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons – I was instantly drawn to this book after it was said to have the world building of Brandon Sanderson, an author I discovered this year and who I’m absolutely in love with, so no pressure Jenn! After reading the synopsis and a few Goodreads reviews its clear that this book has a lot of action and interesting characters so now I’m intrigued to see if it lives up to the hype.
Uniting the worldbuilding of a Brandon Sanderson with the storytelling verve of a Patrick Rothfuss, debut author Jenn Lyons delivers an entirely new and captivating fantasy epic. Prepare to meet the genre’s next star.
