anticipated book releases | January 2019

anticipated book releases

Hello my fellow book lovers! It’s time to discuss which January book releases I am looking forward to! As usual, I don’t including sequels of series I haven’t started yet, even when I’m looking forward to reading them someday.

These are in order of publication date. When you click on the book’s title, you will be brought to the Goodreads page.

oh my gods.png

Oh My Gods, isn’t this cover adorable?! 😀 This YA fantasy seems like a lot of fun: Helen Thomas is a half-mortal teenager, whose family are ancient Greek gods! If you are a fan of Rick Riordan’s work, you should check this out!

release date: January 3rd

black enough.png

I am always looking for more diverse anthologies and Black Enough sounds perfect! The synopsis says it “showcases diversity within diversity”, which I find a beautiful message. Staring authors such as Renée Watson and Jason Reynolds, I doubt this is going to disappoint!

release date: January 8th

the gilded wolves.png

I don’t know anything about The Gilded Wolves, but everyone who has had the chance to read this yet, absolutely loved it! Though I have some of Roshani Chokshi’s work on my TBR, I haven’t read any of her books yet. Oh, and this one stars characters of colour, queer representation and a heist, so what’s not to love?!

release date: January 15th

dragon pearl.png

I have been meaning to read the Rick Riordan Presents books, but I haven’t got around to them. Dragon Pearl is a middle grade sci-fi novel inspired by Korean mythology.

release date: January 15th

genesis begins again.png

Though it’s not my favourite genre, I really enjoy diverse middle grade novels. Genesis Begins Again is a debut and stars Genesis, a girl who learns to love herself by overcoming her abusive family and internalised racism.

release date: January 15th

our year of maybe.png

I’ve wanted to read Solomon’s You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone ever since it was released a year ago, but I haven’t pick it up yet! I think I’m absolutely going to love it though, and my hopes for Our Year of Maybe are high as well. This novel stars Jewish characters and a bisexual protagonist!

release date: January 15th

96 words for love.png

I don’t tend to like books with a heavy emphasis on romance, but 96 Words for Love sounds like it has lots of other elements to offer. It’s a modern retelling of an Indian legend and I love the splash of watercolour on the cover!

king of scars.png

Because I haven’t read the Shadow & Bone trilogy yet, I won’t be picking up King of Scars anytime soon. That said, the hype is going to be through the roof, so I know I’m going to pick it up someday. I’m excited to read more about Nina!

release date: January 29th

the love and lies of rukhsana ali

I already mentioned a few weeks ago The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali is one of my most anticipated releases of the year. Hard-hitting contemporaries are my favourite and the synopsis reminds me of the wonderful Written in the Stars, so my hopes are high!


A few days late, but here are books I’m looking forward to in January 2019! What are your most anticipated releases of the month? Are any of these on your list?

Thank you for reading,

Top 5 Wednesday: Most Anticipated 2019 Releases

top 5 wednesday.png

Hello, my fellow book lovers! Top Five Wednesday was created by gingerreadslainey and is now hosted by Thoughts on Tomes! Visit the Goodreads group if you’re interested in joining! This week’s topic is:

December 19: Most Anticipated 2019 Releases
Pretty explanatory. If you can’t narrow it down, give your selections for only the first half of the year or even just for winter 2019.

So many books are set to be released in 2019, it’s impossible to mention them all in one post! So next year, I’ll continue my monthly most anticipated releases post. Today, I am going to talk about some books I can’t wait to get my hands on! These are in order of publication date.

the love and lies of rukhsana ali.png

When Rukhsana Ali’s conservative Muslim parents catch her kissing her girlfriend, they are devastated and send her to Bangladesh. The premise reminds me of Written in the Stars, which is a beautiful yet heartbreaking novel and was one of my favourite reads of 2017. The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali has #OwnVoices Bengali representation and apparently, the lesbian representation was inspired by the author’s daughter. (publication date: January 29th)

on the come up.png

On the Come Up by legendary author Angie Thomas is probably going to be on everyone’s most anticipated releases list. This novel is said to be a “homage to hip-hop”. I love that the cover matches the cover of The Hate U Give ! (publication date: February 5th)

watch us rise.png

Renée Watson’s Piecing Me Together is one of my favourite reads of 2018; I can’t wait to read Watch Us Rise. It’s set to be released the day before my birthday! Coincidence? I think not! This novel is about two girls who go viral with their Women’s Rights Club. Soon they experience backlash and trolls, but they refuse to be silenced. (publication date: February 12th)

you asked for perfect.png

While Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman isn’t one of my favourite books, You Asked for Perfect is one of my most anticipated releases of the year! I managed to graduate college (twice, in fact), but I completely fell apart afterwards. I still haven’t been able to find a job because of it. That’s why this novel is certainly going to be incredibly relatable, as it deals with perfectionism and academic pressure. And look at that cover!! I absolutely love it! (publication date: March 5th)

daisy jones & the six.png

I know it’s not fair to compare this to The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, but because it’s one of my favourite books of the year (and of all-time!), I obviously cannot wait to get my hands on Daisy Jones & The Six. Taylor Jenkins Reid is an auto-buy author and I’m pleased that this novel is historical fiction as well. (publication date: March 5th)

internment.png

While I loved the synopsis of Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed, the story focussed too much on the romance for my taste. Internment, however, sounds even better and might be as influential as novels such as The Hate U Give: in a near-future United States of America, Muslim American citizens are detained in internment camps. (publication date: March 19th)

the mighty heart of sunny st james.png

Ashley Herring Blake is one of my favourite authors, so obviously, The Mighty Heart of Sunny St. James has to be on my list! This is Blake’s second queer middle grade novel and I hope I’ll enjoy it as much – if not more – as Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World. (publication date: March 26th)

stay sexy and don't get murdered.png

Look. Look and listen. This cover is terrible! It looks unfinished, as if it’s a place-holder until the real cover gets revealed. That said, I’m nonetheless really looking forward to Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered. I love the My Favorite Murder podcast and I’m keen to learn more about their past. (publication date: May 28th)


Those are just a couple of the upcoming book releases I am looking forward to! Which are your most anticipated releases of 2019?

anticipated book releases | November 2018

anticipated book releases

Hello my fellow book lovers! Today I am going to share with you some November book releases that sounds incredibly interesting! My favourite release of the month isn’t book-ish, it’s the release of The Sims 4 Get Famous expension pack 😀 Did you know that I have a Tumblr blog dedicated to The Sims 4? You can check it out here!

Anyway, these are in order of publication date. When you click on the graphic, you will be brought to the book’s Goodreads page.

this is what it feels like.png

This is What it Feels Like looks more fluffy than the contemporaries I’m usually into, but I can’t say no to sapphic girls!

Publication date: November 6th, 2018

girls of paper and fire.png#OwnVoices Asian-inspired fantasy with queer representation? Sign me up! Girls of Paper and Fire has received many glowing reviews from people who have read ARCs, so I hope this is going to be a fantasy I will enjoy, considering I’ve been struggling with the genre for a while. I absolutely love the colours in this cover! Trigger warning for sexual abuse and violence.

Publication date: November 6th, 2018

becomingBecoming is former first lady Michelle Obama’s memoir. This isn’t the type of book I’d buy in a bookstore, but if it becomes available on audiobook, I’d definitely want to check it out!

Publication date: November 13th, 2018

empire of sand.pngThis debut adult fantasy is inspired by Indian history. I added Empire of Sand to my TBR because it is a standalone – though a companion novel is being made – and the ARC has received positive reviews.

Publication date: November 13th, 2018

fire and blood.pngThis is without a doubt my most anticipated book release of the month! It’s no Winds of Winter, but Fire and Blood, which tells the history of the Targaryens in Westeros, is going to do just fine in the meantime. I haven’t pre-ordered it because it’s incredibly expensive, so this will most likely be on my Christmas wishlist.

Publication date: November 20th, 2018

Are you looking forward to these book releases as well? Which ones are on your TBR?

anticipated book releases | October 2018

anticipated book releases.png

Each year, October is one of the biggest months for book releases, so there are plenty of books I want to discuss today! As usual, I don’t including sequels of series I haven’t started yet, even when I’m looking forward to reading them.

These are in order of publication date. When you click on the graphic, you will be brought to the book’s Goodreads page.

sawkill girls.pngSawkill Girls sounds like a spooky read, so perfect for this time of year! On top of that, it features a diverse cast of characters (there’s fat representation, asexuality and more)! Perhaps I should read it during Spook-a-thon?

Publication date: October 2nd, 2018

what if it's usBecky Albertalli is one of my favourite authors, so obviously I can’t wait for What If It’s Us to be released! I actually pre-ordered a paperback copy, but sadly I’ve already been informed I won’t receive it until October 18th 😦 Nevertheless, I will read it as soon as I get my hands on it!

Publication date: October 9th, 2018

blanca y roja.pngUnfortunately I can’t seem to get into magical realism, so when I read Wild Beauty at the beginning of the year, I was rather disappointed. I, however, still want to pick up Anna-Marie McLemore’s work, because so many people adore her books and I hope that all I need, is to get used to the genre. Besides, Blanca & Roja features queer characters, so that sounds right up my alley!

Publication date: October 9th, 2018

beneath the citadel.pngI’m always looking for more fantasy standalones to add to my TBR, and Beneath the Citadel has a beautiful cover and features queer characters of colour, so I’m keen to read it! I have yet to read Destiny Soria’s debut novel – I started Iron Cast a while ago, but wasn’t in the mood for it at the time – but I certainly still want to pick it up.

Publication date: October 9th, 2018

odd one out.pngI wasn’t a fan of the writing style in Dear Martin, so I initially wasn’t sure whether I was going to pick up Nic Stone’s other work. That said, I know for a fact my friends are going to hype up Odd One Out – especially because if features queer characters of colour – so  I’ll certainly want to read it as well.

Publication date: October 9th, 2018

home and away.pngHome and Away is a Young Adult contemporary starring a black girl, so that sounds like my cup of tea!

Publication date: October 16th, 2018

a large expanse of seaI was not a fan of Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me trilogy, but A Very Large Expanse of Sea is nonetheless one of my most anticipated 2018 book releases! It’s about Muslim Americans post 9/11, so this seems like a must-read!

Publication date: October 16th, 2018

imagine us happy.pngImagine Us Happy is about a girl named Stella who is depressed. The novel tackles the harmful “love cures mental illness” trope, so despite it sounding like a tough read, I’m very excited! I think this novel is going to be incredibly relatable…

Publication date: October 23rd, 2018

Are you looking forward to these October book releases as well? Which releases are on your TBR?

Anticipated Book Releases | September 2018

september 2018.png

Hello my fellow book lovers! Today I’m going to talk about some September 2018 book releases I’m looking forward to! Many books are set to be released this month, so buckle up!

Goodreads isn’t helpful and doesn’t show me some of the books I marked as ‘want to read’, so I’m sorry if any books I’m interested in are missing. I don’t including sequels of series I haven’t started yet.

These are in order of publication date. When you click on the graphic, you will be brought to the book’s Goodreads page.

sadie.png

Sadie by Courtney Summers has received nothing but praise, it’s hard to believe this hasn’t even been published yet! I found trigger warnings for paedophilia, sexual abuse and drug abuse, so this certainly doesn’t sound like a fluffy read. All the Rage by this author is also on my TBR, and I’m keen to get to them both soon.

publication date: September 4th, 2018

ignite the stars.png

I have to admit sci-fi isn’t usually my cup of tea, but when I found out about Ignite the Stars, I was intrigued! I received e-ARC through Netgalley which I ought to read ASAP, as this book will be released in a few days!

publication date: September 4th, 2018

unbroken anthology.pngThere are so many diverse anthologies releasing in 2018 I cannot wait to read and Unbroken is no exception! This anthology features #OwnVoices stories about disabled teens. I’m really, really excited for this, I only hope there won’t be a romance in every single story.

publication date: September 18th, 2018the storm runner.png

The Storm Runner is a middle grade fantasy inspired by Mayan mythology starring a disabled main character who uses a cane! I’m absolutely in love with the cover, so I’d like to read The Storm Runner when it comes out.

publication date: September 18th, 2018

pride.png

I won’t lie: at first, I didn’t know whether I would read Pride. I don’t tend to enjoy books with a heavy emphasis on romance and this is a Pride and Prejudice retelling after all. That said, the synopsis convinced me to add it to my TBR. It sounds like plenty of other elements will be dealt with (such as gentrification), and I can’t resist diverse contemporaries like this!

publication date: September 18th, 2018

Are you looking forward to reading these books as well? Which September 2018 book releases are on your TBR?

Anticipated Book Releases | August 2018

august 2018.png

Hello my fellow book lovers! Today I’m going to talk about some August 2018 book releases I’m looking forward to! I’m actually surprised so many awesome books are coming out this month.

Goodreads isn’t helpful and doesn’t show me some of the books I marked as ‘want to read’, so I’m sorry if any books I’m interested in are missing. I don’t including sequels of series I haven’t started yet.

These are in order of publication date. When you click on the graphic, you will be brought to the book’s Goodreads page.

our stories, our voices.png

Our Stories, Our Voices is a non-fiction anthology featuring Young Adult authors such as Aisha Saeed, Nina LaCour and Anna-Marie McLemore. In these essays they talk about growing up as a woman in the United States.

fresh ink.png

Fresh Ink is another anthology in partnership with We Need Diverse Books. I read Flying Lessons & Other Stories last year and I quite enjoyed it, so I am keen to pick up this one. That said, Fresh Ink is a YA anthology, as opposed to Flying Lessons. It features short stories by Malinda Lo, Jason Reynolds and more!

publication date: August 14th, 2018

seafire.png

Seafire is the first book in a new Young Adult fantasy trilogy. It’s about a pirate ship with an all female crew and it’s apparently queer, so I had to share this with you in case you hadn’t heard about it yet!

publication date: August 28th, 2018

mirage.png

Mirage is a Young Adult sci-fi and though that’s usually not my go-to genre, the ARC has received many glowing reviews! It’s inspired by Morocco and the representation is #OwnVoices.

publication date: August 28th, 2018

This is the third and final anthology on today’s list. Ever since I learnt about Toil & Trouble, I’ve been looking forward to it! The short stories are said to be diverse and feature bad-ass witches.

publication date: August 28th, 2018

darius the great is not okay.png

I know next to nothing about Darius the Great is Not Okay, but I think there’s mental health and queer representation, so that sounds amazing! Y’all know I love hard-hitting YA contemporaries and this sounds right up my alley!

publication date: August 28th, 2018

harbor me.png

I read Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson a few months ago and while I didn’t absolutely love it, I am interested in reading more of her work. This book will be released at the end of the month, but I’ve heard positive things about the ARC, so I’m intrigued.

publication date: August 28th, 2018

Are you interested in reading any of the titles I mentioned?

publication date: July 31th, 2018


July isn’t the biggest month for book releases, but I had to make a post talking about these debut novels! Are you interested in reading any of the titles I mentioned?

My most anticipated release of this month is actually non-bookish! I’m very keen to play The Sims 4 Seasons, which will be released on June 22th.

These are in order of publication date. When you click on the graphic, you will be brought to the book’s Goodreads page.

publication date: June 5th, 2018

Other book releases on June 5th I am looking forward to: Fat Girl on a Plane by Kelly deVos

anticipated book releases | May 2018

may 2018.png

Hello, my fellow book lovers! Today I am going to share which May 2018 releases I want to read! Unfortunately, I’m not able to buy these books right away. Nonetheless, each sparked my interest and I plan on reading them when I can.

Goodreads isn’t being helpful and doesn’t show some of the books I marked as ‘want to read’, so I’m sorry if any books I’m interested in are missing. I don’t including sequels of series I haven’t started yet.

These are in order of publication date. When you click on the graphic, you will be brought to the book’s Goodreads page.

i was born for this.pngI have yet to read one of Alice Oseman’s books, but I’m definitely planning to! All my friends love her work, so I doubt I Was Born for This is going to be an exception.

publication date: May 3rd, 2018

amal unboundI loved Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed, so I’m definitely picking up Amal Unbound. This is the author’s middle grade debut and I’m hoping this will convince I ought to pick up the genre more often.

publication date: May 8th, 2018

undead girl gang.pngI feel like I’ve seen so many people talk about Undead Girl Gang, but none of my friends have read it yet. Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to reading it because this sounds very fun. Usually I’m not really into books that are just fun, but Undead Girl Gang deals with murder, so it’s definitely heavy enough for my taste.

publication date: May 8th, 2018

Other book releases on May 8th I’m looking forward to: The Girl and The Grove by Eric Smith and The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo

girl made of starsLast month I read an e-ARC of Girl Made of Stars and I absolutely loved it!!! Ashley Herring Blake is one of my favourite authors and I will continue to read everything she writes! You can read my review here.

publication date: May 15th, 2018

Other book releases on May 15th I’m looking forward to: All of This Is True by Lygia Day Peñaflor

publication date: May 22nd, 2018

the brightsidersDespite the bisexual theme, I’m not really loving this cover. That said, Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde was one of my favourite reads of 2018, so my hopes for The Brightsiders are high!

publication date: May 22nd, 2018

Other book releases on May 22th I’m looking forward to: Driving by Starlight by Anat Deracine

So these are some of the May 2018 book releases I am looking forward to! What are some of your anticipated releases for this month?

Anticipated book releases | April 2018

april 2018.pngHello, my fellow book lovers! Today I am going to share which April 2018 releases I want to read! Unfortunately, I’m not able to buy these books right away. Nonetheless, each sparked my interest and I plan on reading them when I can.

Goodreads isn’t being helpful and doesn’t show some of the books I marked as ‘want to read’, so I’m sorry if any books I’m interested in are missing. I don’t including sequels of series I haven’t started yet.

Enough said, here are some of this month’s book releases I’m looking forward to! Thankfully, here aren’t nearly as many as last month.

These are in order of publication date. When you click on the graphic, you will be brought to the book’s Goodreads page.

circe.pngI read The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller back in 2015 and I loved it! I have to admit I am not very familiar with Circe’s mythology though. That said, I didn’t know much about the Iliad either before I read The Song of Achilles, so I’m hoping that won’t cause issues.

publication date: April 10th, 2018

life inside my mind.pngLife Inside My Mind is a a non-fiction anthology about YA authors and their own mental illnesses. As someone who is mentally ill I am intrigued by this, but I also hope it won’t be too triggering. I want this to be for people like them, rather than to educate people who don’t have mental illnesses.

publication date: April 10th, 2018

ace of shades.pngI added Ace of Shades to my TBR because it has received a ton of hype already! While writing this post, however, I noticed that it has actually received more mixed reviews than I’d thought. I will wait to pick it up until it’s released, because I really need YA fantasy series to be unique and exciting for them to be worth my time.

publication date: April 10th, 2018

leah on the offbeatIt’s no secret that Becky Albertalli is one of my favourite writers ever, so I am incredibly excited for Leah on the Offbeat!!! Leah is Simon’s best friend from Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and she is bisexual and fat ❤ I really hope this will get a ton of hype and not only because of Simon and Blue, but because queer girls deserve just as much love as queer boys get in this community.

publication date: April 24th, 2018


So these are some of the April 2018 book releases I am looking forward to, though I have to admit that I am dying to read Leah on the Offbeat, whereas I am planning to wait and see whether the other releases will be loved by my fellow readers.

What are some of your anticipated releases for this month?
