Another Thursday arrives with more booktube stuff on Finding Wonderland. This week we have a follow up video that first appeared in January. That’s right, it’s that time to talk more anticipated reads of 2019. This post will serve as a kind of part 2 of 3 for anticipatory reads. There’s the video (aka part 1), this post (aka part 2 or vice versa); and then on Tuesday, the popular bookworm meme asks us what 2019 (June – December) releases we’re most excited for. Luckily, I managed to find enough books that I don’t think I’ll have repeats. Or that’s the goal.
You can see five-six upcoming releases in today’s video, and read about a three additional titles down below! These titles are more books I’d eventually like to read or read more about, but maybe won’t pick up with the same haste. This doesn’t mean it’s a reflection of the author, it’s just there are some (genre!) that I’m more curious about.

1: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo (October): OK, so I’ll admit something. From the time I first heard about this one until now, this title has lost some of its luster. It doesn’t sound like the kind of read I’d love. In the beginning what I knew was it was a contemporary (my jam!) by Leigh Bardugo, who is a super popular YA fantasy fiction writer. But the more I read, the less inclined I am to think this is a book that I’ll be drawn towards. I’m leaving it on here still as a “maybe.” Amazon | Goodreads

Sean believes Phantom, an obsessed hacker who previously outwitted the top minds in the field, is behind the attack, and Sean needs this witness’s help, as she’s the person who has come closest to discovering Phantom’s identity.
Trouble is, she’s a witness under the care of US Marshal Taylor Mills, and Sean is reluctant to work with the captivating marshal who knows his deepest secrets. But Phantom claims he knows where the witness is hiding and will kill her, so to stop the hacker, Sean and Taylor must work through their personal pain and learn to trust each other. . . . The seconds are ticking down before someone dies.

From the bestselling author of The Convenient Groom and A December Bride (now beloved Hallmark Original movies) comes the first novel in a brand-new series!
When their parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream: turning their historic home back into an inn.
Adam Bradford (a.k.a. bestselling author Nathaniel Grey) is a reclusive author with a bad case of writer’s block. Desperate for inspiration as his deadline approaches, he travels to a North Carolina lake town, the setting of his next novel. There he immediately meets his muse, a young innkeeper who fancies herself in love with his alter ego.
When Molly finds an old letter in the walls of her inn she embarks on a mission with Adam to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But the guest she invites along has secrets of his own. Past and present collide as truths are revealed, and Molly and Adam will have to decide if love is worth trusting.
There we go! That brings us to an end of my part 2 (or one?) of three for my June – December anticipated reads. I feel like those I’m MOST excited for are in today’s video, but still… there are some additional good ones coming up.
