My reading journey really only began in 2018, yes, of course I read before then but it was in dribs and drabs, after read A Court of Thorns and Roses, that all changed! So, there are quite a few books I’m looking forward to in 2019, but I’m going to narrow it down for you, otherwise we’d be here forever.
Without further ado, here are my most anticipated YA releases:
1. Serpent & Dove – Shelby Mahurin
Two years ago, Louise le Blanc fled her coven and took shelter in the city of Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.
I have been scouting this book for months, ever since I heard EmmaBooks talk about it on her channel. I’m so jealous of the people who got ARCs at book-con, but I’m so exited to hear their thoughts. This is definitely my number one most anticipated read of the year.
2. Five Dark Fates – Kendare Blake
The fourth and final book in the #1 New York Times Bestseller series — Five Dark Fates.
I’m currently flying through the third book and I’m dying to know how it ends. I’m so sad to see this series finish, as I’m currently binging it — it’s such a dark, gritty and poignant YA fantasy.
3. Ninth House – Leigh Bardugo
Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?
I think everyone and their mother is exited for this book. I can’t wait to read Leigh Bardugo’s Adult Fantasy debut and it’s also set in Yale, my favourite University!
4. The Queen of Nothing – Holly Black
5. Wicked Fox – Kat Cho
Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret–she’s a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt.
TheBookishGurl introduced me to this book and then I read the synopsis and I’m super intrigued! I’ve never read a book set in Seoul before, and this feels very Ahri from League of Legends to me!
i hope you guys enjoyed my YA 2019 most anticipated releases, i know we’re already half way into the year, but i couldn’t help but make this list! these book are in no particular order (excluding Serpent & Dove) thanks for reading – nick
