5 Books/Series I want to Reread in 2019

The first series I want to reread this year is The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. If you follow my blog you would know I am currently in the middle of a reread of this series. I have LOVED my experience so far and I will update you of my progress later on this month.

The second series I would like to reread is the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. I read King of Scars earlier this month and that really got me back into the Grishaverse so if I can I would really like pick these up!

Since I’m rereading the Grisha Trilogy it’s only fair that I pick up the Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo and give that a read too. One of my all-time favourite series out there, I was super impressed by this duology and it’s been nearly 3 years since I’ve read these books so I am very overdue.

The fourth book I would like to read again is Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. This is solely in preparation for the second book of the series that comes out on the 5th of March. This book was so hyped that I read it too quickly and didn’t retain enough of the plot or developed a connection to the characters, so I kind of want to take my time and give it another read before I pick up Children of Virtue and Vengeance.

The last book I’m hoping to reread this year is Vicious by V.E. Schwab. Similar to Children of Blood and Bone I do want to get around to reading Vengeful this year but since it’s been around 2 ½ years since I read Vicious I do want to pick it up again and get reacquainted with the storyline.

5 Mystery/Thrillers I want to Read in 2019

I would really like to broaden my scope for 2019 and try a few different genres out, I know I will always love fantasy but sometimes I do get a bit bored of them and need something different to cleanse my palate. I would usually pick up a contemporary but I kind of want to get into mysteries/thrillers this year. These are 5 books that I have been seeing around a lot and some have even made it into the Goodreads Choice Awards for 2018 so I figure let’s give them a go!

Highly Anticipated Book Releases 2019

These are four of my most anticipated book releases for the first half of 2019!

26032887The Wicked King by Holly Black – just want to put it out there I did not like The Cruel Prince. I tried very much to like it because everyone absolutely loves it, but I just didn’t gel to the book. I found Jude to be incredibly unlikeable and naïve and the storyline was a little slow paced and all over the place. But because of that ending I do want to continue on with The Wicked King and give this series one more chance. Release date 8th January 2019

y648The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson – Truly Devious made it to my favourite books of 2018 lists. I was completely taken by surprise by that book as I kind of picked it up on a whim without really knowing too much about it. I was highly entertained throughout the course of the book and plot was woven in such a way that had you second guessing every single character and their motives! Release Date 22nd January 2019

KingofscarsKing of Scars by Leigh Bardugo – I marathoned the Grisha Series and the Six of Crows duology a few years ago and I was obsessed! I believe this is going to be a new series in the same world as the previous books, which makes me very happy! I love Leigh Bardugo’s characters and her plots are always amazing! Release date 29th January 2019

9781509899456Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi – Children of Blood and Bone was I think one of the most hyped books of 2018 when it was released. So hyped in fact that I had to pick it up immediately and give it a read. I will say that I liked it but I didn’t really love it as much as everyone else does. It was very fast paced with a very unique magic system that kept me invested throughout the story. I can’t wait to see where Tomi Adeyemi will take the storyline next. Release date 5th March 2019
