Today I am bringing you my favorite article of the year. It’s time to take a look at the books coming out in 2019! Of course, this is just the selection of my most anticipated releases, as there are sooo many books coming out next year. I tried to limit myself with this selection and failed epically 😅… So grab something to eat or drink cause this article is quite long and let’s take a look at the list. 👇👀
How many new babies/books will be joining your TBR pile soon?
As always towards the end of the year there are fewer book releases, so I wasn’t sure I should write this article. But there are three books I am very excited about coming out in November and December 2018, and I needed to talk about these releases.
Bye Bye September and hello October!
After a September was already a great month for new releases but October might just be better. So hang on to your wallet, cause this article might be dangerous for it.
Let’s take a look at the books that might end up in your TBR really soon👇😍.
Hello readers 🙂
Summer holidays are almost over which means fall is coming. And most importantly, fall new releases! So it’s time to take a look at the books releases of next month. Keep in mind these are just the ones that caught my eyes, but I know there are many other great books coming out in September. In fact, feel free to share with me the ones you’re anticipating the most.
So, I am extremely late but here’s a look at some of the exciting summer book releases! In this selection, you’ll find some new books from some of my favourite authors and some highly anticipated sequels.
Ok, hang on to your wallet and let’s do this 😉
I’m a little behind schedule, but it’s finally time to check out this month’s new releases. There aren’t that many new books coming out at this time of the year. But there are a couple that I’m very pumped about, so let’s get into it!
Title: Smoke in the Sun (Flame in the mist #2)
Author: Renée Ahdieh
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
Release date: 05/06/2018
Synopsis: After Okami is captured in the Jukai forest, Mariko has no choice–to rescue him, she must return to Inako and face the dangers that have been waiting for her in the Heian Castle. She tricks her brother, Kenshin, and betrothed, Raiden, into thinking she was being held by the Black Clan against her will, playing the part of the dutiful bride-to-be to infiltrate the emperor’s ranks and uncover the truth behind the betrayal that almost left her dead.
With the wedding plans already underway, Mariko pretends to be consumed with her upcoming nuptials, all the while using her royal standing to peel back the layers of lies and deception surrounding the imperial court. But each secret she unfurls gives way to the next, ensnaring Mariko and Okami in a political scheme that threatens their honor, their love and the very safety of the empire.
Thoughts: Book one of this series has been sitting on my bookshelf for over a year… But I promise I’ll be reading it really soon. Especially since I’ve heard so many good things about this series. Plus, I had absolutely loved Renee’s first duology.
Title: Save the Date
Author: Morgan Matson
Publisher: Simon Schuster Books
Release Date: 05/06/2018
Synopsis: Charlie Grant’s older sister is getting married this weekend at their family home, and Charlie can’t wait—for the first time in years, all four of her older siblings will be under one roof. Charlie is desperate for one last perfect weekend, before the house is sold and everything changes. The house will be filled with jokes and games and laughs again. Making decisions about things like what college to attend and reuniting with longstanding crush Jesse Foster—all that can wait. She wants to focus on making the weekend perfect.
The only problem? The weekend is shaping up to be an absolute disaster.
There’s the unexpected dog with a penchant for howling, house alarm that won’t stop going off, and a papergirl with a grudge.
There are the relatives who aren’t speaking, the (awful) girl her favorite brother brought home unannounced, and a missing tuxedo.
Not to mention the neighbor who seems to be bent on sabotage and a storm that is bent on drenching everything. The justice of the peace is missing. The band will only play covers. The guests are all crazy. And the wedding planner’s nephew is unexpectedly, distractingly…cute.
Thoughts: Summer always makes me crave cutsie romance novels. And I’m pretty sure this one would be perfect. I’ve read two of Morgan Matson’s books in the past and I’ve loved them both. I can’t wait to read this one over the summer.
Title: A Reaper at the Gates (An Ember in the Ashes #3)
Author: Sabaa Tahir
Release date: 12/06/2018
Synopsis: Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.
The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister’s life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.
Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer. But while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid her, and is drawn into a battle she never thought she’d have to fight.
And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias’s devotion–even at the cost of his humanity.
Thoughts: I’ve been waiting for this book for forever. And now, after being pushed back twice, the third book in the An Ember in the Ashes series is finally coming out. I love this series and I can’t wait t read this book. Although I might need a little reminder of what happened before, cause it’s been soooo long.
New month means new releases and a lot of great new books that might end up on your bookshelf.
Each year May is like Christmas for us book nerds… There are so many epic new books coming out that I couldn’t include them all in this article. These are just the ones I’m most excited about. Feel free to tell me about the ones you are waiting for in the comment section.
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Release Date: 01/05/2018
Synopsis: The Winter Solstice. In a week. I was still new enough to being High Lady that I had no idea what my formal role was to be. If we’d have a High Priestess do some odious ceremony, as lanthe had done the year before. A year. Gods, nearly a year since Rhys had called in his bargain, desperate to get me away from the poison of the Spring Court to save me from my despair. Had he been only a minute later, the Mother knew what would have happened. Where I’d now be. Snow swirled and eddied in the garden, catching in the brown fibers of the burlap covering the shrubs My mate who had worked so hard and so selflessly, all without hope that I would ever be with him We had both fought for that love, bled for it. Rhys had died for it.
Thoughts: Obviously, as the huge Sarah J. Maas trash that I am, I am really looking forward to this novella. I’m excited to read about my babies again and I’m looking forward to going back to the Night Court.
Author: Rick Riordan
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Release Date: 01/05/2018
Synopsis: The formerly glorious god Apollo, cast down to earth in punishment by Zeus, is now an awkward mortal teenager named Lester Papadopoulos. In order to regain his place on Mount Olympus, Lester must restore five Oracles that have gone dark. But he has to achieve this impossible task without having any godly powers and while being duty-bound to a confounding young daughter of Demeter named Meg. Thanks a lot, Dad.
With the help of some demigod friends, Lester managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood, and one in Indianapolis, where Meg received the Dark Prophecy. The words she uttered while seated on the Throne of Memory revealed that an evil triumvirate of Roman emperors plans to attack Camp Jupiter. While Leo flies ahead on Festus to warn the Roman camp, Lester and Meg must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor—and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles—somewhere in the American Southwest. There is one glimmer of hope in the gloom-filled prophecy: The cloven guide alone the way does know. They will have a satyr companion, and Meg knows just who to call upon. . .
Thoughts: It’s been months since I finished my last Rick Riordan book and I am missing it so bad! I need my fix of Riordan ASAP! Plus, Rick Riordan has a tendency to make the third book in his series explosive so The Burning Maze should be quite the epic read.
Auteur: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan
Editions: Simon Schuster
Date de sortie: 08/05/2018
Résumé (VO): Matthew Fairchild is the Consul’s son and the golden-haired boy of the Nephilim. He has the love of his family and his parabatai James Herondale, and nothing to wish for, except excitement and artistry and beauty that do not seem to fit in with a warrior’s way of life. Matthew gets more than he bargained for at the Shadow Market, where he commits the greatest sin of his life—something he can never tell his parabatai, or any of the honorable Shadowhunters around him.
Pourquoi on en parle: Last week I finished my reread of The Infernal Devices and as was to be expected Clockwork Princess left me in pieces. So I’m really glad to have this novella coming out next month, in which I’ll be able to see all of my favourite characters once more.
Auteur: Victoria Aveyard
Editions: Harper Teen
Date de sortie: 15/05/2018
Résumé (VO): VICTORY COMES AT A PRICE.
Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal’s betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart—and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her—Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all… starting with the crown on Maven’s head.

Cal’s powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force.

War is coming, and all Mare has fought for hangs in the balance. Will victory be enough to topple the Silver kingdoms? Or will the little lightning girl be forever silenced?
Pourquoi on en parle: This series might not be my favourite but it’s still a lot of fun, and I know many people are counting the day till the release of this final book. Plus look at them gorgeous covers!

Résumé (VO): Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.
When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.
Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?
Pourquoi on en parle: This looks like the cutest book ever. It’s going to be the perfect contemporary romance for the summer. Plus, I love that this is told through emails.
Auteur: Jay Kristoff
Editions: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Date de sortie: 29/05/2018
Résumé (VO): On a floating junkyard beneath a radiation sky, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap.
Eve isn’t looking for secrets—she’s too busy looking over her shoulder. The robot gladiator she’s just spent six months building has been reduced to a smoking wreck, and the only thing keeping her Grandpa from the grave was the fistful of credits she just lost to the bookies. To top it off, she’s discovered she can destroy electronics with the power of her mind, and the puritanical Brotherhood are building a coffin her size. If she’s ever had a worse day, Eve can’t remember it.
But when Eve discovers the ruins of an android boy named Ezekiel in the scrap pile she calls home, her entire world comes crashing down. With her best friend Lemon Fresh and her robotic conscience, Cricket, in tow, she and Ezekiel will trek across deserts of irradiated glass, infiltrate towering megacities and scour the graveyard of humanity’s greatest folly to save the ones Eve loves, and learn the dark secrets of her past.Even if those secrets were better off staying buried.
Pourquoi on en parle: As you might know, I adore the Illuminae trilogy which is co-written by Jay Kristoff. And altough I’m not interested in reading his fantasy series I do really want to check this one out. This sounds like the kind of science-fiction book I might just love.
So which book will join your bookshelf this month?
Hello readers ! April isn’t a big month for new book releases, but there are a few great books coming out in the next couple of weeks.
Here are the four new releases that caught my eye 👀, and that might join my bookshelve real soon.
Author: Madeline Miller
Publisher: Lee Boudreaux Books
Release date: 10/04/2018
Synopsis: In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child–not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power–the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.
Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.
But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.
Thoughts: Her name might not sound familiar, but you’ve probably already heard about Madeline Miller. Indeed, she’s the author of the best-selling novel The Song of Achille. Both this novel and Circe, her new book, are based on and inspired by the greek mythology. If you know me, then you know that’s exactly the kind of things I love.
Author: Veronica Roth
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release date: 10/04/2018
Synopsis: Fate brought them together. Now it will divide them.
The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.
Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.
As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may—or may not—be her father. For Akos, it could mean giving his own. In a stunning twist, the two will discover how fate defines their lives in ways most unexpected.
Thoughts: Last year, Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent Saga, made her big return with Carve The Mark. To be completely honest, I didn’t read this book and don’t think I will. But this sequel is still a hot new release and I’m sure many are looking forward to it.
Auhtor: Becky Albertalli
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release date: 24/04/2018
Synospsis: When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic.
She’s an anomaly in her friend group: the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.
So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high.
It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.
Thoughts: For a little while now, I’ve been meaning to read a Becky Albertalli book. First, because I want to read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens before watching the movie adaptation. Plus, everyone seems to be in love with her books. So I think I will read Simon first, since Leah on the Offbeat is a sort of sequel, and then read Leah.
Author: Adrienne Young
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Release date: 24/04/2018
Synopsis: OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient, rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.
Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
Thoughts: This is a debut novel for Adrienne Young, and already it’s making a lot of noise. I am really curious about this book. The Goodreads reviews are amazing. Plus, Vikings and a bad-ass woman? Count me in.
So, which of these book releases have caught your eyes ? Let me know in the comment section below ⤵
Hello readers.. Am I the only one that feels like February flew by ? Anyway, it means it’s time to check ou the new releases and to get excited about the cools books coming out in March.
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Release date: 06/03/2018
Synopsis: Juliette Ferrars thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she’s got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?
Thoughts: It’s been four years since Tahereh Mafi published Ignite Me, the final book in the Shatter Me trilogy. I had loved this trilogy but had always felt there could have been more. The end of the trilogy left the door wide open for more, and so I am so excited to be getting more books in this series. I cannot wait to see where the author will take this story and these characters.
Author: Tomi Adeyemi
Publisher: Henry Holt Books
Release date: 06/03/2018
Synopsis: Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.
Thoughts: This is a debut novel that’s making a lot of noise. According to the publisher, it is perfect for fans for Sabaa Tahir and Leigh Bardugo, so it’s right up my alley. Also, the first reviews have been coming out and they are fantastic. I am definitely intrigued by this book.
Author: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Knopf Books
Release date: 13/03/2018
Synopsis: Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion?
Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha’s past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.
With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.
Thoughts: You have no idea how excited I am about this book. I’ve been waiting for it for months and having reread the first two books recently has me pumped. Obviously, I’ve preordered the book and I will also be buying the audiobook the second it comes out because these audiobooks are perfection.
Author: Roshani Chokshi
Publisher: Rick Riordan Presents (Disney Hyperion)
Release date: 27/03/2018
Synopsis: Twelve-year-old Aru Shah has a tendency to stretch the truth in order to fit in at school. While her classmates are jetting off to family vacations in exotic locales, she’ll be spending her autumn break at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture, waiting for her mom to return from her latest archeological trip. Is it any wonder that Aru makes up stories about being royalty, traveling to Paris, and having a chauffeur?
One day, three schoolmates show up at Aru’s doorstep to catch her in a lie. They don’t believe her claim that the museum’s Lamp of Bharata is cursed, and they dare Aru to prove it. Just a quick light, Aru thinks. Then she can get herself out of this mess and never ever fib again.
But lighting the lamp has dire consequences. She unwittingly frees the Sleeper, an ancient demon whose duty it is to awaken the God of Destruction. Her classmates and beloved mother are frozen in time, and it’s up to Aru to save them.
The only way to stop the demon is to find the reincarnations of the five legendary Pandava brothers, protagonists of the Hindu epic poem, the Mahabharata, and journey through the Kingdom of Death. But how is one girl in Spider-Man pajamas supposed to do all that?
Thoughts: You might, or might not know of my love for Rick Riordan. He is one of my favourite authors and I am extremely excited for this collection of books he is publishing with Disney Hyperion. I know he isn’t the writer, and that’s fine by me. I am more than happy to discover new ones. I am looking forward to learning about other cultures and their myths.
