This week’s Top Ten Tuesday looks at our most anticipated books releasing in the first half of 2019. We’re both dealing with a healthy backlog of books, so it’s hard to think too much about buying more books, but there are a few that we’re looking forward to.
Thanks again to That Artsy Reader Girl for another great list!
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
After reading The Hate U Give I’m excited to see what this next book brings.
Merchants of Truth by Jill Abramson
Written by the former editor of the New York Times, this tells the story of what’s been happening in news rooms across the country over the last decade and how/why it’s reshaped our view of news.
On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong
This one sounds heartbreaking and beautiful. Plus it’s a poetry collection and I’ve been meaning to read more of them.
Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams
I stumbled across this one and the premise just sounds good: a Jamaican-British woman works for a newspaper in London and struggles to fit in while making hilariously bad life choices.
The School for Good and Evil #5: A Crystal of Time by Soman Chainan
i I’m already thinking of reading the entire series again (despite the fact that I read them last year . . .).
The Hod King by Josiah Bancroft
Though I didn’t enjoy the second Books of Babel chapter as much as the first, I’m still looking forward to reading more about Senlin & co. in their continuing adventure in the Tower of Babel.
Station Zero by Philip Reeve
Reading the end of the Railhead trilogy will be sad, but I am very curious to see where Reeve takes our anti-heroes next.
Spring by Ali Smith
It’s Ali Smith—I’m sure it’s going to be fantastic and thought-provoking as always.
The Sol Majestic by Ferrett Steinmetz
A feel-good story about a cast of unusual characters trying to save an intergalactically popular space restaurant? Sounds like my kind of book!
The Parade by Dave Eggers
Just like with Ali Smith, I don’t know much about this one but I don’t really need to. I’m sure it will be brilliant.
