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... :/

  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!

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway | Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long

I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for this first novel in Julie Anne Long's new historical series―The Palace of Rogues. I found my way to Ms. Long's writing in a bit of a piecemeal fashion. Her long-running Pennyroyal Green series is widely beloved and records the various and sundry escapades of the always-scheming, never repentant Eversea and Redmond families. Really, the series is worth the price of admission for the hilarious (and ever-evolving) "Ballad of Colin Eversea" alone (though Colin's is not actually my favorite book). But I've come to believe that this sweeping eleven-book series has something for every reader. You just have to dip your toes in enough times to find your favorites. And once you do, they will become instant and confirmed comfort reads. Spoiler alert: mine are It Happened One Midnightand What I Did for a Duke. I'm sorry, Colin, but the Duke of Falconbridge, you are not. You'll be just fine, though. Madeleine ha…

Review | All the Walls of Belfast by Sarah J. Carlson

I have had a string of lovely successes with contemporaries lately. I wonder, sometimes, about the phases we go through, both in reading and in life in general and whether or not (or where) they align. I'm not always able to see the patterns amid the daily vicissitudes, but I wonder about them often. Several months ago, I saw the cover for Sarah J. Carlson's debut novel All the Walls of Belfast and thought I might have died and gone direct to heaven. The title alone is my favorite of the year, hands down. I don't even care if those are fighting words. It is the best title of the year, so there. And, happily, it has a cover to match that beauty, all orange and green and hints of the walls that make up its title. I could only hope that the content matched. Somehow I knew it had to.

Fiona grew up in America. From the time she was two years old and her mother took her and fled Northern Ireland for the unknown wilds of Wisconsin, she has believed that her father was dead. And …

Illustrated Pretties

I can't resist with these three. I love a good illustrated cover so much, and these three are not only just beautiful but include a couple of delicious retellings, a debut novel, and at least three young women who sound as fierce and determined and real as I could hope for on this International Women's Day. Put them on your calendars. I'm feeling the good feelings.

The Guinevere Deceptionby Kiersten White
This cover, you guys. This cover . . . I love it so much. And I haven't read a good Arthurian retelling in far too long. In this version, Guinevere is not at all what she seems. Summoned by Merlin to keep Arthur safe, she is a changeling who gives everything up to protect Camelot. GOOD YES GOOD.
