Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Anticipated Releases

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is top ten – Most anticipated releases for the first half of 2020

Blogmas Day Nineteen: Unread 2019 Releases

fullsizeoutput_258e

Hellllllo, lovelies! Last week, I did a Blogmas post about the incredible amount of 2019 releases that I did manage to read this year. Previous years, I’ve had more unread than read, so I thought I could talk about the new releases that I bought and still haven’t managed to pick up and read yet. But, I do plan to make them a priority in early 2020. These are only the books that were published in 2019 that I already own, either physically or on eBook. I’m still really excited about all of these books (becasue I recently did an unhaul and these are all books that managed to keep their place on my shelf).

I’m pretty happy with the fact that this my list on unread 2019 releases. That’s not to say I don’t have other backlist books that I haven’t read yet (because I certainly do). But I managed to read more than half of the new releases I bought thhis year and I’m very pleased with that. What 2019 release did you buy this year but haven’t managed to read yet? Comment and let me know!

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

fullsizeoutput_209d

Hi, lovelies! Let’s talk October book releases! There are so many great books that have come out so far this year. October is no different. Somehow, four of my most anticipated releases of the year are being released this month. Come talk to me about new books!

1 October 2019
Crier’s War by Nina Varela
I know nothing about this book other than the fact that it’s queer and that I’m obsessed with the cover.

1 October 2019
The Last True Poets of the Sea by Julia Drake
The cover of this one caught my attention. Then, I saw Chelsea Dolling rave about it and I knew I had to have it on this list.

8 October 2019
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
I am beyond excited to see what Leigh has in store for us with her first adult novel. I already have the Illumicrate special edition preordered. This is definitely one of my most anticipated releases of the year.

8 October 2019
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdeih
I’ve seen so many mixed reviews for this one. But I’m all over that synopsis. I am definitely excited for this one.

8 October 2019
Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo
I adored To Kill a Kingdom so I am highly anticipating enjoying this one as well.

8 October 2019
The Burning Shadow by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Armentrout is an auto-buy author for me. I have this one preordered and I cannot wait to get into the next installment of this series.

8 October 2019
A Kingdom for a Stage by Heidi Heilig
I was lucky enough to meet this author at the NoVaTeen Festival. She was awesome and I cannot wait to get into this series.

15 October 2019
The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco
I adored Rin’s Bone Witch series. I expect to really love this one just as much.

15 October 2019
Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu
NetGalley had this one as read now for a bit. I loved this. It was sweet and full of action with great representation.

22 October 2019
Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren
I am lucky enough to have an eARC of this. Which is why it’s on this list. I’ve enjoyed the Christina Lauren books I’ve read so far.

Do we share any books from this list of October’s anticipated releases? Let me know below! Share with me any new releases that I didn’t include, but should have.

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
