Anticipated 2019 Releases

Hello,

This is the time of year for either reflection or looking ahead to the new year. And this post will be one of the looking ahead ones. Today I’m going to share with you my most anticipated releases for 2019!

This won’t be a definitive list of all the releases I’m interested in. But I do create this list and add to it throughout the year. This list lives under the Anticipated Reads tab on the main menu.

Warring my thoughts on these books and why I’m excited will some time be incoherent rambling of excitement so I’m also including the currently available synopsis of each of these books.

Each photo is linked to the corresponding goodreads pages. So if you like the sound of it, you can add it to you goodreads TBR

They are listed in no particular order.

I’ve adapted this from questions for Cait at paper fury. It looked like fun and the pie chats looked so cute. You will be glad to know that I found a way to simplify the pie chart making process, and now have a spreadsheet which I fill in throughout the year and it automatically makes the charts yay!!

Also this is for the all books I’ve read in 2018 so not all where released this year.
