I don’t usually make specific TBRs as I typically choose my next book based on my mood. I have been finding it more difficult to make that choice due to the vast amount of amazing titles that have been released recently. 2019 has already been a great year for new releases. By making this list, I hope to help future me make that decision easier. I have read 8 books a month so far this year so I choose 8 books for my TBR, my most anticipated among ones that will help me reach my reading goals as explained in this post.
I am currently rereading the Ember in the Ashes series so that I can read the third and final book in the series, A Reaper at the Gates.
1. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I am currently reading this and hope to finish within the next 2-3 days.
2. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
3. A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
Yes, I know how late I am in finishing this series. I was so patiently waiting for the release of the final book of an amazing series and then life got in the way. Other books got in the way. Sorry.
4. Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
Newly released, I am very excited to read this fantasy novel. I have heard so many good things about this book which makes so excited to delve into this. The four quarters and the different queens that run each one sounds very fascinating. Also, this book fulfills my monthly goal of reading one of my Book of the Month selections. I was so glad when I saw that BOTM had this book as an add-on.
5. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
I mean, who wasn’t looking forward to this daunting novel? From the author of The Bone Season, Samantha Shannon has shown us how amazing of an author she can be. I am sad that TBS 4 is taking longer than usual to release. PLEASE…. I need it.
6. Smoke and Iron by Rachel Caine
Smoke and Iron is the fourth novel in the Great Library series. I’m not sure why this novel is underrated because it is SO good. I love all the characters, for all of their different personalities and the way they can work together for a common goal.
7. Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
Truly Devious follows the life of a first year student at Ellingham Academy and her interest in solving a century old crime that took place at the academy. This true crime novel is the first in a trilogy and sounds so interesting.
8. Wired by Caytlyn Brooke
Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with this eARC. What first drew me to it was the cover. To me, it speaks of fascination. From what I know of this book, it sounds similar to Warcross in the way that technology can take over our lives and push us further from reality. As this is an eARC, I hope to have a honest review for it sometime this month.
Are you excited to read any of these books? What other books do you want to get to? Let me know in the comments!
