Hello, fellow Top Ten Tuesday-ers, and friends! Here we are, a week into 2019, so of course, it’s time to talk anticipated 2019 reads with a Top Ten Tuesday January 8 topic. PS: am I the only one who thinks it’s weird to write ‘2019’??
That Artsy Reader Girl | Top Ten Tuesday January 8: Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2019
I have a booktube video all about this topic coming, so because of this, I am going to try not to talk about books in said video. But if that doesn’t happen then, they’ll be some crossover; and really that’s okay. When you anticipate a book that much, it means you have to share all the time. For obvious legit bookworm reasons.
I’m excited about a few 2019 releases, but not an overload. Or at least I don’t feel like there is. Still, since the yearly publication schedule picks up the further we get into any new year, who knows what I might think 3 months from now.
For today, I share a select few that I’m excited about.
Top Ten Tuesday January 8 | Anticipation! 2019 Books I’m Excited About!

1: Serious Moonlight (April) by Jenn Bennet | I’ve not yet read (I know, where have I been!?) anything by Jenn, but this one sounds old-fashioned. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the cover art is divine! Amazon | Goodreads
2: Somewhere Only We Know (May) by Maurene Goo | This past year I read Maurene’s The Way You Make Me Feel and thought it was really cuuute. Hopefully this one will follow in its footsteps. Amazon | Goodreads
3: No Place Like Here (May) by Christine June | A modern Hansel and Gretel twist? I’m in for that! Christina has actually written a handful of contemporary fairy tales, and though I do have ARCs of them, I haven’t yet had the time to read them – yes, I’m quite bookworm ashamed about this. Amazon | Goodreads
5: Fake it Till You Break It (June) by Jenn P. Nguyen | This one looks darling, and I’m all about a good contemporary. This one is a pretend-to-date love story that I hope entertains. Amazon | Goodreads
6: To Best the Boys (March) by Mary Weber | Mary always writes a unique story that paints a unique world no matter its genre. Her upcoming novel (which features a girl who completes for an all-boys scholarship) sounds like it will follow this same pattern. Amazon | Goodreads
I’m also sort of curious about Sally Thorne’s upcoming novel (January) because I’ve seen so many gush-y things about her first book; and Joanne Bichof’s Daughters of the Northern Shores (March) as well as Rachel McMillan’s Murder in the City (May); plus the start of a new mystery series in Never Let Go (February) by Elizabeth Goddard! If you’re surprised that certain books didn’t make this list, they may show up in Thursday’s booktube video!
