Top Ten Tuesdays #240: Upcoming Releases

Posted June 18, 2019 / Top 10 Tuesdays, Weekly Memes / 13 Comments

Most Anticipated Releases of the 2nd Half of 2019

(that I don’t currently have review copies of)

Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.

I always like to do this post excluding my review copies, because I can’t necessarily anticipate them to the same extent if I HAVE them already, right? Here are the TWENTY-NINE WHOOOOPS books I’m most excited about for 2019 that are not currently in my possession! As usual, I’m including a tiny snipped of the synopsis that made me add it to my “jazzed up for this” Goodreads shelf – the selling point or the Lauren-bait.


The Last Book Party Me Myself & Him The Bookish Life of Nina Hill Maybe This Time

The Last Book Party by Dukess | “A propulsive tale of ambition and romance, set in the publishing world of 1980’s New York and the timeless beaches of Cape Cod.”

Me Myself & Him by Tebbetts | “this story of parallel time lines cleverly explores how our choices can change and shape us–as well as the ways in which choices don’t change the core of our being at all.”

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Waxman | “but she isn’t convinced real life could ever live up to fiction. It’s going to take a brand-new family, a persistent suitor, and the combined effects of ice cream and trivia to make her turn her own fresh page.”

Maybe This Time by West | “Told over the course of one year and following Sophie from event to event, this delightful novel from master of romantic comedy Kasie West shows how love can blossom in unexpected places.”

Hello Girls How the Light Gets in Start Here Pumpkinheads

Hello Girls by Cavallaro/Henry | Winona and Lucille realize they can’t wait until graduation to start their new lives. They need out. Now. All they need is three grand, fast. And really, a stolen convertible to take them from Michigan to Las Vegas can’t hurt.”

How the Light Gets In by Upperman | “She doesn’t expect to be charmed by the tiny coastal town or by Tucker Morgan, a local boy brimming with sunshine. But even as her days begin to brighten, Callie’s nights are crowded with chilling dreams, unanswered questions…”

The Magnolia Sword by Thomas | “…all families send one soldier to fight the Rouran invaders in the north. Mulan’s father cannot go. Her brother is just a child. So she ties up her hair, takes up her sword, and joins the army as a man.”

The Survival List by Sheinmel | “The only thing connecting Sloane to her older sister Talley is a list–random places, unfamiliar names, a phone number that she doesn’t recognize. Ever since Talley died, Sloane has been completely fixated on it: maybe understanding how the items on list connect is the key to understanding why Talley took her own life.”

The Babysitter’s Coven by Williams | “Esme and Cassandra have more in common than they think, and they’re about to discover what being a babysitter really means: a heroic lineage of superpowers, magic rituals, and saving the innocent from seriously terrifying evil. And all before the parents get home.”

One Night Gone by Laskowski | “when she becomes drawn into the mysterious disappearance of a girl thirty years before, Allison realizes the gorgeous homes of Opal Beach hide dark secrets.”

Ninth House by Bardugo | “Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful.”

Royal Holiday by Guillory | When flirtatious banter turns into a kiss under the mistletoe, things snowball into a full-on fling. Despite a ticking timer on their holiday romance, they are completely fine with ending their short, steamy affair come New Year’s Day. . .or are they?”

The Bromance Book Club Winterwood Call Down the Hawk (Dreamer #1)

The Bromance Book Club by Adams | “Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville’s top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage.”

Winterwood by Ernshaw | “Nora realizes she has no choice but to unearth the truth behind how the boy she has come to care so deeply about survived his time in the forest, and what led him there in the first place. What Nora doesn’t know, though, is that Oliver has secrets of his own.”

Not the Girl You Marry by Christopher | Before Jack and Hannah know it, their fake relationship starts to feel all too real—and neither of them can stand to lose each other.”

The Queen of Nothing by Black | “Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.”


Would Like to Meet

Would Like to Meet by Winters | “a cynical assistant at a screenwriting agency must reenact the meet-cute scenes from classic romantic comedy movies in order to help her #1 client get his scriptwriting mojo back–but can a real-life meet-cute be in store for someone who doesn’t believe in happily ever after?”
