Hi everyone! Today I want to talk about 10 books I want to read in 2019 that are NOT 2018 releases. That post is coming soon! I did a post like this at the beginning of 2018 and it helped me remember some books that I really wanted to read, so I didn’t lose sight of them in the sea of new releases, and I’m hoping it will do the same this year!
A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro: In this book, Sherlock and Watson were real people and their descendants find themeselve thrown together and solving crimes. That premise sound so COOL! I have been curious about this book since it came out like 2 years ago and so many people I trust love it, so I really need to get to it!
Mr Mercedes by Stephen King: A retired cop haunted by an unsolved crime gets a letter from the culprit where he threatens a more diabolical attack and the cop has to prevent it. I love stories where there’s a cop/ P.I./ Journalist trying to solve a mystery, so this is right up my alley. Also, I really want to read a full novel written by King, I ahve only read short stories and his book about writing.
Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel: A little girl finds a giant metal hand. Seventeen years later, she’s still looking for answers, now as a highly trained physicist leading a top-secret team. I have heard so many amazing things about this book and now that all the books in the series are out, I feel like it’s the perfect time because I can marathon it.
Bird Box by Josh Malerman: Something is out there and it must not be seen. One glimpse of it, and a person is driven to deadly violence. A family has to go in a terrifying journey to escape. I have gotten into scary/ spooky books in 2018 and someone recommended this, so I want to give it a chance. Also, the movie is coming out soon!
And I Darken by Kiersten White: This a gender-swapped version of Vlad the Impaler and I’m so here for it! The concept sounds intriguing and I have heard great things about the characters, I think I’m really going to like the main character, Lada. I just have a feeling I’ll love this.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: Lazlo Strange is obsessed with the lost city of Weep, and then one day, someone starts to recruit people to help save this city and Lalzo does everything he can to be apart of that team. Most people I I know have given 5 stars to this book, so I put it in my 5 star predictions post and I’m hoping to love it as well!
Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray: This is the third book in The Diviners series, which it’s set in the 1920s and follows a group of people with different abilities that have to solve mysteries and face ghosts, curses and evil spirits. I have said this before, but the only reason I haven’t read this book is that we don’t have a release date for the fourth book yet 😭 But I can’t wait anymore!
A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir: The Sequel to An Ember in Ashes a roman inspired fantasy about Laia, who is a slave, and Elias, who is a soldier. Neither is free and their destinies are intertwined. Another one I have been meaning to read for a long time (do you see the theme of this post?!)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte: Jane has been hired by the brooding, proud Rochester to care for his ward Adèle. Jane finds herself drawn to his troubled yet kind spirit and she falls in love. But what is he hiding? Everyone seems to love this and I have been meaning to read it, but I have tried twice and I haven’t made it past page 30, so this is the last chance I’m giving this book.
The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri: This books describes Dante’s descent into Hell with Virgil as a guide; his ascent of Mount Purgatory and encounter with his dead love, Beatrice; and finally, his arrival in Heaven. I have been meaning to read this for the longest time but I felt intimidated. I’m participating in a book club at the beginning of 2019 and we are gonna read this one, so I’m finally getting to it!
What books do you want to read in 2019? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Are you planning on reading any of them?
