Angie's 2019 Must Be Mine List

A clean slate, my friends. Complete with a brand new list of titles I can't wait to read. Here they are, my most anticipated books of 2019:





 
And no covers for these ones yet, but I'm counting down the days just the same:
A Modest Independence by Mimi Matthews
Echo in Onyx by Sharon Shinn
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
The Wallflower Wager by Tessa Dare
The Nobodies by Liza Palmer
The Harp of Kings by Juliet Marillier
Crescent City by Sarah J. Maas

Which titles are on your list?

  1. I have some of these - Walls of Belfast, Comics Will Break Your Heart, I Owe You One, and am dying to get my hands on others - The Bride Test, The Austen Playbook. I just finished 99 Percent Mine today, and really, really enjoyed it. I hope you get to read all of these and they live up to your expectations.

  3. There are a bunch of books here that are new to me! *pops over to Goodreads to check them out* I'm really anticipating the next book in Samantha Shannon's Bone Season series, but I don't know if that will get published in 2019 or if we have to wait even longer... :/

    1. Oh, good! I hope you find something great. And I've heard several people mention the next in Shannon's Bone Season series. Fingers crossed it comes out this year!

  4. Happy New Year Angie!

    I didn't realise we would have a new Sharon Shinn - hurrah! I've pre-ordered the MWT in hardcover (I can't remember the last time I did that) and really looking forward to the Leigh Bardugo - not long more...

    1. I mean, it's hard to believe it's actually happening, isn't it? I already feel shaky. And I've heard so many people excited about the new Marchetta. Happy reading year to you, too, Audrey!!

    1. It really will! Dancing in your chair is the appropriate response, IMO. And thank you so much, Susan!

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked It's Not Me, It's Youwell enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You, and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number, I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and Beth O'Leary's The Flatshareshould also take note.
Comedy was tragedy plus time, but the…

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion—a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes. 
Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record, both are likel…

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.
