We are already over halfway through 2019, despite how mad it seems, and so as I always do at the start of the year, I’ve decided to share some of my most anticipated releases for the next six months. I can not wait to finally be able to pick up and read so many of these books that all sound so interesting to me. As well as there being alot of brand new stories on this list from authors I haven’t read from before, there are also a few sequels and new releases from my favourite authors that I can not wait to dive into.
So here are eleven of my most anticipated releases for the second half of 2019!
Released 30th July
This one follows five different high school seniors as they re-unite after a tragic plane crash involving their parents, and honestly it sounds like a novel I need right now. I love reading books that see different characters come together despite their differences, and so I’m sure this emotive and powerful novel will be right up my street.
Released 30th July
I’ve been really into books with multiple POV’s recently, particularly fantasies, and so that combined with the Prince faking his own death and a warrior magically assuming his appearance makes this one insanely appealing to me. I can not wait to see if the world and the characters are as interesting as they sound when this book is finally released!
Released 10th September
I adore the sound of this contemporary following matchmaker Simran as she uses her family gift to start a matchmaking service via an app that soon ends up turning the high school hierarchy upside down. This just sounds like such a cute read that will just warm my heart and hopefully be everything I want in a perfect contemporary novel.
Released 24th September
This one is described as a gothic psychological thriller with a haunting twist, and honestly that just instantly makes me want this book! I adore the eerie sound of this book, as one of the ten students in this isolated finishing school goes missing, and I can not wait to see what twists and turns this mystery might hold within.
Released 1st October
This spooky contemporary novel sounds like exactly my sort of book, as it follows our main character, Zora, who after being framed for murder has to turn to the towns infamous ghost stories & history of tragedy in order to uncover the true culprit. Despite having yet to read any of Francesca Zappia’s other books, I have heard such good things about that I am sure this one is going to be the perfect Halloween read.
Released 8th October
I have thoroughly enjoyed all of Renee Ahdieh’s other books I’ve read, and so I am super excited that she is releasing another new story later this year, this time focusing on vampires in 19th Century New Orleans. Its been so long since I’ve read a vampire novel, and so I can not wait to see how she spins such a trope, particularly in a setting that I adore.
Released 15th October
Honestly it is the gorgeous concept of the divided fantasy world in this one that makes me so excited for its release. I love the idea of these twin goddesses continuously ruling over this world before one of them split the world into polar opposites, and I can not wait to see what this intriguing story has in store.
Released 22nd October
These are some of my favourite contemporary stories, with this one following Jesse, Cate and Adeem as they attempt to face their problems and their truths before the possibly end of the world in just seven days. I can’t wait to dive into these character’s lives and to watch them come together as they face the end of the world, and I just hope that I enjoy it as much as I think I will.
Released 5th November
This has to be my most anticipated release for the second half of 2019, as I have still not gotten over the fact that we are finally getting the first book in the Ronan Dreamer trilogy in just a few months! I can not wait to read a new story set in one of my favourite fictional worlds, and to be reunited with some of my favourite characters.
Released 19th November
Of course this one had to be on this list, as I can not wait till November when I can finally discover how this dark faerie story ends. I love everything about this story, from the politics to the twists and turns and the morally grey characters who I’m never 100% sure whether I should be rooting for or not, and so I am more than ready to see what more Holly Black has up her sleeve.
Released 3rd December
Another fantasy sequel here that I am more than excited for, as Children of Blood and Bone felt like just the beginning of this spectacular adventure with Zélie and Amari. I adored the world-building and the magic element in this story, and so I can not wait to explore everything further and see what else this world has to offer.
