This week we’re talking about upcoming books that may or may not make it onto our future TBRs. I have a few 2019 books that I’m planning to read, but I’m not sure whether or not I’ll actually like them.
Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zetner: Though I have heard some great things about this one, I still haven’t read anything by Jeff Zetner so I’m on the fence about it.
Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto: This one I am excited for because huge phoenixes!!! However, I’m worried that it might be loaded with some YA tropes and I’m trying to avoid those.
The Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton: Though I am looking forward to continuing this series, I didn’t totally love the first book so I’m wary. I may wait to see some reviews before I make a choice.
Children of the River Ghost by Alexandra Aceves: This book sounds like it might be amazing. It’s a book about a girl who falls in love with La Llorona. If you are unfamiliar with that ghost story, I highly recommend you look it up, but leave the lights on. I’m worried that the story might lack some of the gravitas I would want from an adaptation of the La Lllorona story, but I sincerely hope it’s done well!
Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo: Another one that sounds like it could be great, or it could be way too similar to other popular YA novels.
Gravemaidens by Kelly Coon: YA novels with royalty always make me nervous, but I do love some of them!
Fireborne by Rosaria Munda: I think I can let the goodreads blurb speak for me on this one. “Inspired by Plato’s Republic and told from a dual point of view, the story is pitched as Aegon Targaryen and Hermione Granger with dragons, set in the aftermath of a bloody revolution.”
The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones: I’m wary of this one because I haven’t read anything by this author yet, and it was compared to Sky in the Deep which I did not care for.
Bone Grace by Kathryn Purdie: Paranormal romance is the best for me, but it could just be one big eye roll. I hope it’s great!
Ink in the Blood by Kim Smejkal: I am still looking for the great YA tattoo-centric novel. I hope this is it, but so often I find they aren’t great for me.
Have you read any of these titles yet? Are you excited about any of them? Let me know your thoughts. Happy Tuesday!
