Anticipated Releases

 Since there are SO many books I’m excited about, I decided to break this into two parts. This list will be my top 12 anticipated releases from January to June. Then I will come back in July and do my top 12 for the rest of the year. 

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
Release date: January 15
This definitely gives me Six of Crows vibes, which I love!

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
Release date: January 29
Let’s be honest, Leigh Bardugo could write a restaurant menu & I’d read it 100 times. Nikolai is one of my favorite characters from the Grishaverse. I’m excited to see what he is up to.

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Release date: January 29
Beauty and the Beast retelling?? Yes! Disability rep?? Yes!

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
Release date: February 5
Angie Thomas writes with her entire heart & soul. I’m so ready to meet Bri.

Internment by Samira Ahmed
Release date: March 19
I feel like this book has the potential to be so powerful.

The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston
Release date: April 2
Okay, I didn’t even know this was happening until a few weeks ago. Geekerella was absolutely nerdy & I loved it. So ready for this one.

Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Release date: April 2
First off, that cover is stunning. Second, I’ve heard this world is close to the Grishaverse…count me in!

Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett
Release date: April 16
I’m hoping for fluffy goodness, with a little bit of a mystery.

Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Release date: May 7
I still haven’t read The Illuminae Files, but this book sounds amazing!

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
Release date: May 7
I hate that I have to wait until May for this book. I just want to read it now

Finale by Stephanie Garber
Release date: May 7
Legendary was my favorite read of last year. It blew me away. I’m so excited & very nervous to see how this story ends!

Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa
Release date: June 25
The ending of Shadow of the Fox had be shook. Dying for this release!


Okay so the real take away from this list…my bank account is going to hate me on May 7th. Totally worth it though.

What books are you excited about in the first half of the year??

    I’ve got my eye on A Curse So Dark and Lonely! I will see how everyone ends up liking it first.
    I still haven’t read Geekerella but really want/need to!
    Have you not read Illuminae? Girl. It’s so good!
    I’m so so so ready to try Shadow of the Fox, and wow, I didn’t realize the sequel was coming out so soon, so I DEFINITELY need to read it before the sequel is released!

    It’s going to be a great year!


    1. You definitely need to read Geekerella. It’s so cute! I started Illuminae a long time ago, but put it down for something else. I’m hoping I can get to it before Aurora Rising comes out. 😀
