Today’s #Project14Lists post is…

24 Books On My 2019 TBR

I made a list of 24 “must read” titles in 2018, too, but didn’t stick to that list very well! Because of that, I wanted to try again, but with one big difference: in 2018, I mostly chose books I felt I “should” read; in 2019, I’m choosing books I’m very excited to read!

I’ll have a little more information about my 2019 TBR and challenges coming soon, as well as a BINGO BOARD I made for my goals(!) that I can’t wait to show you all! But, for the sake of #Project14Lists, today’s post is just the list of 24 specific titles going on it.

    You have some great titles on here! I’m especially hoping you’ll like Winter. TLC is one of my favorite series🙂 Good luck on all of these!

    Ooh I’ve read a bunch of these. I absolutley loved Alice, Rolling in the Deep, Stormdancer, Strange the Dreamer, Godsgrave and Horrorstor. Enjoy!

      Excellent! 😀 Those all sound so good—I’m simultaneously considering this my 5-star predictions list for the new year, haha. Thank you!

    Can’t wait for the Sorcery of Thorns!

    ooh what an exciting tbr!! Winter and The Serpent King and Second Chance Summer <3 also i read Shiver forever ago and have been debating rereading it in 2019!! hope all these books are excellent and your 2019 is too 🙂

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 7:07 pm

      Thank you love!! I’m so glad to hear you loved all of those – especially The Serpent King, it’s one I’m extra excited to read. I hope your 2019 is amazing, too! ♥

  • Reply Bookish Rita December 26, 2018 at 11:51 am

    Horrorstor sounds so good! It’s been on my TBR for years now, so maybe 2019 should be the year I get to read it. I also started Second Chance Summer a few years ago but gave up because the writing wasn’t for me. I hope you get to it and love it! I’d love to read a review and maybe give it another shot 🌟

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 7:08 pm

      Oh no, sorry you didn’t enjoy what you read of Second Chance Summer! I’ll definitely post a review when I read it, fingers crossed I’ll like it because it’s one of the books that’s been on my Goodreads TBR shelf the longest!

  • Reply Marie December 26, 2018 at 1:08 pm

    This Savage Song! Second Chance Summer! The Serpent King! (cried SO hard while reading these last two). I can’t wait for you to read these books, I hope you’ll love them 😀

  • Reply mistysbookspace December 26, 2018 at 5:55 pm

    I have Second Chance Summer on my TBR for next year as well. I actually think it was one of the books I put in my #JanJamJar

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 7:16 pm

      Oh nice! If you end up pulling it out of the jar in January, I hope you enjoy it!

      • Reply mistysbookspace December 27, 2018 at 8:04 pm

        Thank you I hope you enjoy it as well when you get to it.

  • Reply Meeghan reads December 26, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    Shiver is fantastic. I hope you really enjoy this series!!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 7:24 pm

      Thank you! I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Maggie so far so my hopes are high. 🙂

  • Reply Lauren Becker December 27, 2018 at 12:12 am

    I really want to read Horrorstor, This Savage Song, Alice, and Strange the Dreamer as well (I actually own Strange the Dreamer so hopefully I can get that started soon). I’ve read – and really loved – Scythe and Winter. I read Shiver years ago too and thought it was really good, though I only read the first two.

      I hope you get the chance to catch up on all of these reads, Lauren! And I’m really glad to hear you loved Scythe and Winter 🙂 I’m so excited for them both.

  • Reply anhdara13 December 27, 2018 at 2:13 am

    Some of these are on my TBR! I really want to eventually read This Savage Song, A Curse So Dark And Deadly and Wicked Saints.

    Good luck on all these Strange the dreamer and Name of the wind( Audio book i started it it’s entertaining) are also on my List

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 7:46 pm

      Thank you love! Oh my spouse just played the prologue of Name of the Wind for me on the audiobook they have last night and it sounded like a really great narrator, I hope you enjoy it!

  • Reply Jen | Book Den December 27, 2018 at 11:34 am

    The Name of the Wind is going into my TBR jar for next year. I’m excited to read the new Janz, too.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 7:46 pm

      YAAAAAY! I get so excited to hear someone else talk about being excited for new Janz material, haha! He has so quickly become one of my all-time faves. ♥

  • Reply Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense December 27, 2018 at 11:53 am

    I am dying for Sorcery of Thorns. Shutter was pretty good, but I think I like Pitch Dark more. I have a feeling you’ll love Strange the Dreamer. Hope you get to all of these in 2019!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 7:47 pm

      Sorcery of Thorns is going to be amazing, I feel it in my bones!! I have very high hopes for Shutter and Strange so I’m glad you enjoyed them. 🙂 Thank you, Alicia!! ♥ Happy reading!

  • Reply tasya @ the literary huntress December 27, 2018 at 11:58 am

    I love Horrorstor and Second Chance Summer! Horrorstor is an unexpectedly creepy read, it started out pretty harmless but it escalated quickly. Meanwhile, Second Chance Summer is a waterwork for me :’)

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 7:48 pm

      AWESOME, I love hearing that about Horrorstor! I love books that start off quiet and build up the fear factor. 🙂 Haha aww, I have heard Second Chance Summer is pretty crushing – is it weird to say I’m looking forward to it, even though I’m planning on saving it for some time when I need a good cry? Lol!

  • Reply Ellyn December 28, 2018 at 7:17 am

    Ahh your tbr looks like so much fun! I’ve only read Scythe, Winter & Alice but I really enjoyed all of them! Alice is A LOT so definitely check out the triggers first because it’s pretty intense. That being said, it’s also a fantastic and very different take on Wonderland and I’ve appreciated the take more and more since I read it earlier this year.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 28, 2018 at 8:41 am

      Yaaaay, I’m looking forward to all of them! and thank you for the heads up on Alice! I read the first few chapters of it back in 2017 and was LOVING it but wasn’t quite in the right head space so I will 100% be saving that one for a day when I’m ready to dive into something really twisted haha!

    I’m hoping to read this savage song, a curse so dark and lovely, shiver, and second chance summer as well this upcoming year! I love Schwab, Matson, and Stiefvater so IM SURE I’ll adore those books. If I don’t, I’ll quietly sob. 😂

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 2, 2019 at 9:12 pm

      Hahaha I feel you on the quiet sobbing if we don’t love all of those. 😂 Though I haven’t read anything by Morgan Matson yet, but I have a feeling I’ll like her writing!

  • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches January 8, 2019 at 6:16 am

    Scythe and Godsgrave and A Curse So Dark and Lonely. Name of the Wind is a MAYBE since people are still waiting for the third book, if I remember correctly? And I just cannot be arsed to read it and then get frustrated with all those other people, haha.
    I’ll hopefully get to Lady Midnight as well, eventually. If all goes right with my Shadowhunter-rereading plans that is..

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 14, 2019 at 10:13 pm

      Yup, still waiting on book 3! The author supposedly said recently that the political climate here has him too depressed to do anything creative. Guess I can’t blame him, really… :/ But it does suck for the fans who have been waiting for so many years!

      • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches January 15, 2019 at 6:45 am

        On one hand.. no.. On the other.. It’s like.. USE IT AS AN ESCAPE. WRITE. 😂
