January 8: Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2019
Here’s ten books I’m hoping live up to their hype! Alphabetical by author as always.
- The Winter of the Witch; Katherine Arden. I need this book from the library already!
2. Mostly Dead Things; Kristen Arnett. A review I found promised it was “hilarious, deeply morbid, and full of heart.”
3. King of Scars; Leigh Bardugo. I just love her characters.
4. The Wicked King; Holly Black. The fair folk at a capricious and scary best.
5. The Golden Tresses of the Dead; Alan Bradley. Flavia de Luce is amazing. That is all.
6. The Kingdom of Copper; S.A. Chakraborty. Book 2 of a gorgeous story.
7. The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls; Anissa Gray. Family is weird.
8. Black Leopard, Red Wolf; Marlon James. Fantasy with shapeshifters, necromancers, and witches lurking about.
9. The Dreamers: Karen Thompson Walker. A sleeping sickness, with some significance to the dreams the sleepers are having.
10. The Bird King; G. Willow Wilson. Maps that bend reality!
I am debating on reading King of Scars. I loved Six of Crows, but fantasy is not my normal read. Maybe I’ll try to get the audiobook from my library. It’s so well hyped.
You may as well give it a try, right? If you don’t like it, you can just give it back to the library!
Definitely putting The Golden Tresses of the Dead on my TBR!
It’s not the first book of the series, but I highly recommend it–weird, morbid girl detective. 🙂
Definitely looking forward to some of these! Great list 😄
The agony of a reader. 😉 Thanks!
The Cruel Prince is loaded onto my kindle and ready to go, but now I’ve heard things about the book that are making me a little iffy. Ugh…I think I’ll at least give it a shot. Can’t hurt right? lol Great list! 🙂
If you don’t like it, you can always quit it. I found it a slow start, myself.
I’m #1 in the hold line at my library for The Winter of the Witch! BUT they are still on order 😦 I’m dying waiting.
Me, too! It can’t come soon enough!
