Disclaimer: I’d never kill a lion.
1) The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee – I recently read Gentleman’s Guide and absolutely adored it! I have a feeling this is going to be an epic, hilarious sequel and I cannot wait for Felicity to take over the world.
2) Save the Date by Morgan Matson – This is one of my most anticipated releases of the year. Morgan Matson is an absolute favorite of mine and I have read all her other books and I am desperate some more Matson. Plus, I loooove wedding books.
3) My Plain Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, and Jodi Meadows – I adored the first installment from the Lady Janies, My Lady Jane. Much like Mackenzi Lee’s book, I can’t wait to see what other fun shenanigans these women have in store for us!
4) Legendary by Stephanie Garber – The first book in the series, Caraval, was one of my favorite reads last year and if I don’t get my hands on this sequel ASAP I’m going to slay more than a lion–I’ll slay everything in my path.
5) Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli – Technically, by the time this post goes live, this book will be released, but such is not the case at the time of writing, so I’m including it because I NEED.
6) From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon – Of course, Menon crashed on to my radar with When Dimple Met Rishi, and, if I’m being honest, this one sounds even better! I love that it’s told through letters…and the sticky romantic situation that Twinkle finds herself in? Sold!
7) Final Draft by Riley Redgate – After adoring Redgate’s Noteworthy, I knew I needed to read more from her. And it’s about a writer!! I have many excitements!
8) A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer – Kemmerer has yet to disappoint me, and I trust her to knock this Beauty and the Beast retelling out of the park. Also, hooray for including a disabled protagonist! 2019 is so far away ahahahahahahha.
9) What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera – I haven’t read anything by Silvera (yet), but I just know they are going to be a POWER DUO! This book takes place in New York and has Broadway elements and it just sounds so cute and interesting.
10) Broken Things by Lauren Oliver – I’ve never actually read any of Oliver’s thriller books–in fact, I haven’t read anything by her in a looong time–but she is one of my favorite authors in the entire world and the excerpt that I read of this novel is creepy and delicious and I think it’s about time I try out her thrillers.
