Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season and getting lots of work done before the end of the year. I decided I want to do some more book related content on her so I though I would share with you some of my most anticipated book releases of 2019. 2019 has so many cool books coming out and I can’t wait! I’m going to be sharing the list in order of release date. Without further a due, lets get into it!
1: Within These Lines by Stephanie Morrill. This book comes out March 5th.
Description: Evalina Cassano’s life in an Italian-American family in 1941 is everything it “should be” until she falls in love with Taichi Hamasaki, the son of Japanese immigrants. Despite the scandal it would cause and that inter-racial marriage is illegal in California, Evalina and Taichi vow they will find a way to be together. But anti-Japanese feelings erupt across the country after the attack on Pearl Harbor, and Taichi and his family are forced to give up their farm and move to an internment camp.
Degrading treatment make life at Manzanar Relocation Center difficult. Taichi’s only connection
to the outside world are treasured letters from Evalina. Feeling that the only action she can take
to help Taichi is to speak out on behalf of all Japanese Americans, Evalina becomes
increasingly vocal at school and at home. Meanwhile, inside Manzanar, fighting between
different Japanese-American factions arises. Taichi begins to doubt he will ever leave the camp
With tensions running high and their freedom on the line, Evalina and Taichi must hold true to
their values and believe in their love to make a way back to each other against unbelievable
I love any story that takes place during world war 2 and this book sounds absolutely gorgeous. The cover is so beautiful. I can’t wait for this book to come out.
2: Descendant of the Crane by Joan He. This book comes out April 2.
Princess Hesina of Yan has always been eager to shirk the responsibilities of the
crown, but when her beloved father is murdered, she’s thrust into power, suddenly the queen of
an unstable kingdom. Determined to find her father’s killer, Hesina does something desperate:
she engages the aid of a soothsayer—a treasonous act, punishable by death… because in Yan,
magic was outlawed centuries ago.
Using the information illicitly provided by the sooth, and uncertain if she can trust even her
family, Hesina turns to Akira—a brilliant and alluring investigator who’s also a convicted criminal
with secrets of his own. With the future of her kingdom at stake, can Hesina find justice for her
father? Or will the cost be too high?
In this shimmering Chinese-inspired fantasy, debut author Joan He introduces a determined and
vulnerable young heroine struggling to do right in a world brimming with deception.
This sounds really unique and not like anything else I’ve read in a really long time. I love any kind of story about a Queen trying to save her kingdom.
3: The boy who steals houses by C. G. Drews. The is book comes out March 4th.
Description: Can two broken boys find their perfect home?
Sam is only fifteen but he and his autistic older brother, Avery, have been abandoned by every
relative he’s ever known. Now Sam’s trying to build a new life for them. He survives by breaking
into empty houses when their owners are away, until one day he’s caught out when a family
returns home. To his amazement this large, chaotic family takes him under their wing – each
teenager assuming Sam is a friend of another sibling. Sam finds himself inextricably caught up
in their life, and falling for the beautiful Moxie.
But Sam has a secret, and his past is about to catch up with him.
This book is written by one of my favorite book bloggers, Paper Fury. This book sounds heartbreaking and adorable. I’m very excited to see a YA book that has a character with autism.
4: Again, but better by Christine Riccio. This book comes out May 7th.
Description: Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy
parents…sounds ideal — but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and
Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change —
there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a
semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue
boys, and find adventure!
Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her
bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.
Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer
anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic – the possibilities are endless.
I’ve been watching Christine’s book review videos for years and I’ve watched every video of her talking about writing this book. It’s really inspiring to see that this book is finally getting published after all the work she put into it. I can’t wait to see my own book being published one day.
5: Three Dark crown #4 by Kendare Blake. This book comes out September 3rd.
This book doesn’t have an official cover, title, or description but we do know that it is the last book in Three dark crowns series. I can’t wait to see how this story ends and what happens to these beloved characters.
6: Legend #4 by Marie Lu. This book comes out next fall.
This book also doesn’t have an official title, cover, or description but I am still extremely
excited for this book. I loved the legend trilogy and I couldn’t believe it when I head she was
writing a fourth book! This book picks up right after the epilogue of Champion.
Well thats all I have to talk about today. Let me know if you plan on reading any of these books next year and what your most anticipated release of 2019 is. I will see you all next week in my 2018 year in review post. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
