T10T: 2019 Releases I WISH I Could Find Under My Christmas Tree [#Project14Lists no. 8]

December 25, 2018

To anyone who celebrates it, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s challenge was to focus on books we hope to find under our Christmas tree, but I thought this would be a good chance to talk about my 10 most anticipated 2019 releases—or, for the purpose of this post, “2019 Releases I WISH I Could Find Under My Christmas Tree”(Or, in the case of the ones I have ARCs of, I wish I could put these books under all of YOUR Christmas trees!)

This is also my EIGHT post in the #Project14Lists series, hosted by Shealea at That Bookshelf Bitch! You can find more information here, as well as a thread of my posts for the event here.

1. King of Scars — Leigh Bardugo
I absolutely cannot wait to spend more time with sweet Nikolai—and I get to celebrate the release by meeting Leigh Bardugo on her release tour, which I am so excited and in disbelief over, honestly. ♥
releases january 29, 2019

40381319

2. The Priory of the Orange Tree — Samantha Shannon
Three of my favorite buzzwords: dragons, fantasy standalone, queendom. WOW, am I stoked for this one.
releases february 26, 2019

30295312

3. The Red Scrolls of Magic — Cassandra Clare
Have I read The Dark Artifices yet? Nope. Does it stop me from pre-ordering all of Cassie’s other 2019 releases? NOPE.
releases april 2, 2019

42762686

4. The Dark Game — Jonathan Janz
One of my favorite overly-specific horror themes is whenever a book features horror authors as the characters. One of my other favorite overly-specific horror themes is when the plot revolves around a contest or “game”. This has both. WIN. I’ve got an ARC of this one on its way to me and I am counting down the days.
releases april 11, 2019

39338454

5. The Bride Test — Helen Hoang
I loved The Kiss Quotient so much, and I NEED more of Helen’s incredible writing.
releases may 7, 2019

30075662

6. Aurora Rising — Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
My faves are writing another space series. I cry forever. 😭
releases may 7, 2019

42201395

7. Sorcery of Thorns — Margaret Rogerson
If you’re new here, or have been under a rock, you may have missed my endless screaming over this author’s debut novel An Enchantment of Ravens, but basically I adore Margaret forever and I literally SOBBED when she DMed me offering me one of her ARCs. Then I cried all over again when it got here and now I’m just waiting for the perfect timing (aka as soon as Short-a-thon is over, probably) to devour this.
releases june 4, 2019

37587820

8. Darkdawn — Jay Kristoff
I keep putting off Godsgrave because I hear it has the wildest cliffhanger ending, but every day that Darkdawn’s release draws nearer is another day that I consider just shooting myself in the leg and inhaling Godsgrave right then and there.
releases september 3, 2019

9. Capturing the Devil — Kerri Maniscalco (cover TBA)
I’m not even a little bit prepared to say goodbye to sweet Audrey and Thomas, but at the same time, I can’t possibly get this in my hands fast enough.
releases september 26, 2019

10. Crescent City — Sarah J. Maas (cover TBA)
Technically, I don’t know if we’re still getting this in 2019, as there hasn’t been much news on it lately, but I am so excited for Sarah’s new series.
??? (latest update is “late 2019”)

    I have pre-ordered Wicked King and can’t wait to read it! King of Scars is on my TBR too. Happy 2019 – I hope it’s full of books.

      I hope you love The Wicked King (and that we both love King of Scars!). ☺️ You too, friend! Thank you!

    Hope I get lots of Amazon money for Christmas, because I’d really like to pre-order Priory of the Orange Tree, Chain of Gold, Ghosts of the Shadowhunters Market, The Wicked King… so many books to read next year. I didn’t know SJM was starting a new series either. Next year’s going to be a great reading year! Merry Christmas!

    May 7 cannot come soon enough but like you with ‘Godsgrave’ I’m going to be scared to read it right away knowing it’s the first of the series and a yearly-ish wait for more! 😭

    In an ABSOLUTELY UNSURPRISING MOVE I just nodded my head in agreement to literally all the books on your list this week because REASONS. Also, I’m so happy for you that you get to meet Leigh Bardugo!! This is so amazing. As if King of Scars happening wasn’t exciting enough! WOO! Also, am I laughing at you pre-ordering all of Cassie’s upcoming releases? YES. Because, daaang if that ain’t the MOOD. She’s positively spoiling us this year. I hope you get to finishing The Dark Artifices soon! I really do adore that trilogy. Can’t wait for Magnus and Alec having their own book/series though ahh.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 8:54 pm

      Hahaha YESSS! Oh man, I’m so nervous to meet Leigh. I keep worrying about what if I goof up and say something stupid about Mal. 😂😂😂 But exciting~! And yesss, Cassie really knows how to treat her fanbase, doesn’t she?! 😂 I’m super excited to read TDA but also, yes please to Malec being the star of the show – especially Magnus 😍😍😍

  • Reply Jolien @ The Fictional Reader December 25, 2018 at 4:45 am

    I’m the same with The Priory of the Orange Tree! It includes all my favorite buzzwords and things, and I can’t wait to read it…

  • Reply thebookdutchesses December 25, 2018 at 5:15 am

    Love this list! King of Scars is probably my most anticipated release for the first part of the year <3 I read the whole Dark Artifices series this November/December and can’t wait for more Cassie books! Can’t believe I took that long of a break from her Shadowhunter world

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 27, 2018 at 8:54 pm

      Thank you! That’s awesome that you read the whole series so quickly, way to go, especially since those are some big books lol!

    I’m the most exited for new Buffy comic and Wayward Son. The Red Scrolls of Magic is in my list too even though I haven’t started TDA. I also agree with The Bride Test and The Crescent City.

    I’m definitely looking forward to On the Come Up by Angie Thomas and Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi. — The Kaufman and Kristoff book, do you know if it’s going to be multimodal like the Illuminae series was? I really want to read it because so many people like it, but the format didn’t work for me in audio. Also, there’s a person in my house who really likes space books… Thanks!

      Ooooh yes, On the Come Up is another one I’m very excited for!!
      I’m not sure on Aurora, but I think they said it’s going to be just a standard novel – which makes me a little sad, but I know they were concerned about a fair handful of readers not enjoying the way The Illuminae Files books were formatted, like you mentioned!

  • Reply Kyra December 25, 2018 at 2:43 pm

    I NEEEEED The Wicked King! Not too long to go until I can read it! 😀
    I hope you get some of these and that you have a lovely Christmas! <3 x

    I’m STILL wondering about what the format for Aurora Rising will be like. I feel like expecting “plain text” isn’t the way to go, but I also can’t see them doing another round like The Illuminae Files? I DON’T KNOOOW.
    Also.. I wanted to wait reading Godsgrave, but then couldn’t resist putting it in my January Jam Jar and then it ended up being the FIRST book pulled out and now I have to read it and I still haven’t started it yet because I secretly want and don’t want to at the same time and this is torture okay.

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

      I really really want it to be like The Illuminae Files, but I remember in an interview early last year, Jay said it would be a standard novel format. I’m a little sad about it, not gonna lie. :’)
