Top Ten Tuesday: The Anticipation is Killing Me!

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Anticipated 2019 Releases!


I had previously shared some of my most anticipated YA releases, and now I am going to show some love to all the adult books I cannot wait to read in 2019. This is a mix of go-to authors, new favorites, and new-to-me authors, and I am excited about each and every one of these books!


What are some of your anticipated 2019 releases?
Let us know in the comments!

  1. These look really fun- especially Natalie Tan's which I need to go take a closer peek at.

    1. If you like romance, this list will satisfy. When I really take a hard look at my adult reads, they are all contemporary romances, and so is this list.

  2. I'm not really one to look way ahead. I tend to stumble across books as they come out. I'm looking forward to the new Extinction Trials book in February.

  3. I like the synopsis of Waiting For Tom Hanks. It seems a rom-com I'd love to read.

    Happy readings! ;)

    1. I am all over rom-coms. They make me happy, and I have enjoyed two other books by Winfrey. I am pretty excited to see she was releasing an adult book.

  4. Oh, awesome list Sam -- my eyes went to Ayesha At Last straightaway!

    1. Ayesha has been on my radar a while, but now it has Nick's seal of approval, so I really hope I get to read it.

  5. The Bride Test for sure! Definitely looking forward to that one. And as soon as I catch up with the True North series I'll be starting the Brooklyn Bruisers series. So much good reading ahead! And I really need to read something by Sawyer Bennett one of these days.

    1. I am behind on my Sarina Bowen books too (I need to get on her blogger review list), but I won a $50 Amazon gift card, so there are some new books in my future. If you like sports romances, the Cold Fury books by Bennett are great, but she also has a legal series I loved.

      Delete
    2. Congrats on the gift card win - that's awesome, Sam!! :)

      Delete
    3. I always like to win something in the beginning of the year, because I think it's a good omen

  6. Oh lots of good ones. The Bride Test is on my list too. Natalie Tan's Book of Luck and Fortune looks interesting!

  7. Haha, Pride and Dad Jokes. Awesome. I hope you like all these!

      I loved the last two Winfrey books I read, and am interested to see what she does in the adult realm.

      Delete
    3. Don't worry I would rather read about Tom Hanks NOT Cruise - he's to crazy for me.

    1. Me too. My biggest problem is getting the books. I swear I would read them if I had them.

    1. But I think the book we have in common will be phenomenal.

  14. I liked The Kiss Quotient, so I'll probably be reading The Bride Test as well. Waiting for Tom Hanks is an interesting title. Does it have something to do with the actor?

    1. Not directly, but the heroine is waiting for her rom-com Tom Hanks. I love Winfrey and cannot wait to read her adult book

  21. Yay for The Bride Test. I hadn't seen Pride and Dad Jokes but I love the name and Penny Reid usually writes some pretty funny stuff! I'll check that one out for sure! I just recently added Overnight Sensation to my TBR, I just need some time when I don't have to read an ARC to get to it! Lol! :)

    1. I think Reid is hilarious. Her books are never at my library though, so I have to buy them to read them. I like the Bruisers series, but then again, I always enjoy Bowen's books.

  22. Waiting for Tom Hanks looks super cute! I do love Tom Hanks. :)

    1. I have wanted Legend's story since book one. There is always the really emotional story in the series, and I feel like it's his.

  25. All the illustrated covers are SO CUTE, I cannot even stand it! I have heard good things about The Bride Test already, but some of the others look really good too, I shall have to check them out! Hope you end up loving them all!

    1. I think Hoang is definitely one to read. Her first book surprised me in the best way, and all those lucky readers with ARCs of TBT are saying amazing things. She just brings something new and fresh to romance. Illustrated covers are awesome. I will take them any day over photos.

      Delete
  26. This is a great list. I just heard about Ayesha at Last and can’t wait to read it. I haven’t read Penny Reid yet (but I’ve met her lol) so I have read one of her books this year. Hope you enjoy these books!

    1. I am pretty sure the first Beard book is free on Amazon right now. She's extremely intelligent and it comes across with the way she writes her characters. Her books are so witty and nerdy fun. I adore them.

  27. This is an amazing list Sam. I absolutely cna't wait for The Bride Test. I loved The Kiss Quotient so much and absolutely can't wait for Helen Hoang's next book :)

    1. It looks like physical ARCs went out and GREAT reviews are rolling in. SQUEE!

  29. You still manage to find a few books I've not heard of on this so I'm going to have to go see if I'm going to look foward to them too. I can't wait for Lucy Parker's latest release, but I can never wait for that to come out. And The Bride Test looks so good, I need it in my life obviously. I am so excited to start Ayesha At Last though, it's been on my Kindle for like a month and I cannot wait to pick it up soon.

    1. Whoo hoo! Still succeeding in not being too mainstream. 🤣 Parker's series is SO good. I MUST read them all. I recently got approved for Hired and Ayesha, so I will definitely be reading those two, but I read by publication and am on Feb ARCs right now.

      Delete
  30. Yay for new releases! Ayesha at Last is one I am also looking forward to and the covers and titles of Pride and Dad Jokes as well as The Right Swipe catch my eye. I would like to see what you think of those ones ^^

    1. There are way too many new releases that I want to read. My requesting finger is so, so itchy, but I am trying to show some self control.

  31. Great list!! I don't follow adult releases as much as YA so I added several of these to my TBR list. Thanks!
