#Top10of2018: 2019 Anticipated Books

2019 ANTICIPATED READS

I have already read more than ten 2019 releases, but don't worry, I have 411 on my TBR. I checked back on my anticipated reads from 2018, and I am happy to report I read them all. One thing I can say about this list is that every one of these books is on the list, because I absolutely loved previous books by the authors. Many of these authors are on my go-to list, and I am so, so happy I get to read more of their books. Without further ado, here are ten of my most anticipated 2019 YA releases. 


What are some of you 2019 anticipated releases?

    1. So far, Zentner is 2 for 2 for me. I really like his storytelling, and Kemmerer's contemporaries just hit the spot for me.

    May the coming year be special in every way… bringing you the gift of love and excitement.

    1. I was rejected for Sweetie. One of my cry-in-the-fetal-position rejections, but I think my library will get it. So, I will read it at some point.

  6. I can't wait for Serious Moonlight either!

    1. I hope my library gets it, and that I am not on the wait list for the rest of my life. Or, maybe someone in my family will actually buy me a bookish gift. It could happen.

  7. So many pretty covers! I need to get to Jean Bennett soon.

    1. I have read all her published YA and have been working through her adult backlist. She just writes great books.

  8. I hope you get to read and love each and every one Sam.

    I already read Serious moonlight, and I have How Not to Ask a Boy to Prom and it sounds adorable. And of course I want to read Sweetie!

  9. All the colorful covers would make an awesome poster or background. :) I haven't read the last few by Kasie West but Maybe This Time looks cute.

    1. I can't not read a Kasie West book. Lucky in Love was my least favorite, and it still got 4-stars from me. They are fun and cute and warm me up. I like reading her books.

  10. I've been so out of the loop and only know about the new release by the author of When Dimple Met Rishi, which is one on my shelf waiting for me to read! I hope you will be able to get around to all of these and I will be eagerly awaiting your reviews because I want to know more about them. Happy New Year <3

    1. This is a hardcore wish list. I have NONE of these books and have already been rejected on EW for several of them. Just hoping to get on a tour or that my library gets them.

  11. I'm definitely excited for the Jenn Bennett book and I've been eyeing Rayne & Delilah's Midnight Matinee ever since I first saw the cover a while back. I can't wait to see what you think of that one.

    1. Zentner's books have been winners for me, so I am all in on Rayne.

  13. Rayne & Delilah's Midnight Matinee... I need it. SO BADLY. And Serious Moonlight too, but really Rayne & Delilah's Midnight Matinee. I do hope you get to read all of them soon! Also, I am wildly impressed that you read all of your most anticipated! I... absolutely did not hah!

    1. I know. I really need the next Zentner book too. It sound brilliant. I track my Can't Wait Wednesday and my anticipated reads to see if I actually read them, and I was impressed that I at least knocked out those 10 I really wanted to read from last year. Most were great, but even the ones that didn't knock me out were good.

  14. I am trying hard not to look to closely at many 2019 books. Need to get caught up with some older books :) I do see a Zentner book on your and I have liked his work in the past so I might have to look a bit harder at that one.

    1. I am making an effort to limit ARC requests. I am trying to stay under 15 per month, which is less than half the books I read, but it is hard. I legit want to read so many books.

  15. These all look so fun! I'm behind on Kasie West's books, but they're always light, entertaining reads. I like to sandwich them between heavier tomes for a little variety.

  16. I love your choices for BOTB! I want to read quite a few of them! Enjoy the new year!

  18. I do a lot of most anticipated books lists, but I'm never able to read them all. So happy you did it! :) Those are some fluffy romances. I'm quite interested in There's Something About Sweetie.

    1. I read the 10 from my year end top 10 post last year, but I have not read all my Can't Wait Wed books, though, I read a lot of them. Fluffy romances are my sweet spot. I will forever love them.

  19. I am so excited for Sweetie. I love how Sandhya Menon's covers just instantly make me smile. Hope all these end up being great reads for you!
