Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

I’ve been MIA to Top Ten Tuesday for the past few weeks because life got a little busy, but I am so HAPPY to get this post up, because I LOVE gushing about all the books I want to read and maybe, hopefully, also actually will read soon. And oh boy, does the second half of 2019 deliver with some amazing releases.

Here are the twelve releases of the second half of 2019 I’m most excited for!

Loki Where Mischief Lies by Mackenzi Lee Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin The Magnolia Sword by Sherry Thomas

Loki: Where Mischief Lies by Mackenzi Lee

September 3rd

I love the character of Loki fiercely. I also love Mackenzi Lee’s writing and I trust her to do him justice. So heck yeah, I’m anticipating this release.

Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin

September 3rd

A love story between a witch and a witch hunter? I mean, as an enormous enemies-to-lovers enthusiast, I give it a YES PLEASE!

The Magnolia Sword by Sherry Thomas

September 10th

It’s a Mulan retelling. Written by a Chinese-American author, whose Elemental trilogy I already loved and adored. Also, what a gorgeous cover!

Taming Demons for Beginners by Annette Marie Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Taming Demons For Beginners by Annette Marie

September 13th

Hey, what did you expect? A list without any Annette Marie? As if πŸ™‚
I’m really looking forward to this new spin-off series set in a favorite world. Also, is it weird that I’m really hoping for a demon-demon tamer romance?

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

October 1st

It’s Leigh Bardugo’s first adult novel. Honestly, this book was already on my ‘WANT IT’ list purely because it’s Leigh Bardugo.

Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

October 3rd

I am both ecstatically happy and low-key terrified at the thought of more Simon and Baz. Please let this live up to all my expectations.

The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh Into The Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo The Alchemist and an Amaretto by Annette Marie

The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh

October 8th

I haven’t read about vampires in a while and am totally ready to dive back in. Especially if the story is set in New Orleans and is written in the lush and gorgeous writing style of RenΓ©e Ahdieh.

Into The Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo

October 8th

I loved Alexandra Christo’s To Kill A Kingdom, so naturally I’m intrigued by anything she writes next. Also, I’m just a sucker for the crooks/outcasts working together trope, so there’s that too.

The Alchemist and an Amaretto by Annette Marie

October 11th

Seriously, do I even need to explain at this point? Annette Marie will always be on my most anticipated list.

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern Call Down The Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

November 5th

I was late to the The Night Circus train, but now that I have firmly boarded that plane, I can’t wait to lose myself in the beautiful whimsy of Erin Morgenstern’s next novel.

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

November 5th

Note to self: reread The Raven Cycle before this release.
Also, YAASSS MORE RONAN. Please just give me some happy Ronan/Adam scenes, please?

The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

November 19th


Tell Me:
