Good morning! Today I’m looking back at the three bookish preview posts I shared right at the beginning of 2019 to see how many of them I actually managed to get to! I’m splitting this up according to age range but my original posts were 2019 Debuts; Sequels and more; and other 2019 releases I was looking forward to!
While I’ve started to read much more Middle Grade fiction this year I’ve read exactly none of these three books I identified at the beginning if the year! I’ve not even gotten around to buying them! Check back tomorrow for the middle grade books I did get to and love though!
Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen McManus; A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer; You Owe Me A Murder by Eileen Cook; Hope and Other Punchlines by Julie Buxbaum; Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly; Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer; Evermore by Sara Holland; The Wicked King by Holly Black; To Be Perfectly Honest by Jess Vallance; Corpse & Crown by Alisa Kwitney; Chrysalis by Brendan Reichs; A Girl Called Shameless by Laura Steven; Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian; The Secret Commonwealth by Philip Pullman; We Set The Dark On Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia; If You’re Out There by Katy Loutzenhiser; The Truth About Keeping Secrets by Savannah Brown; We Are Blood and Thunder by Kesia Lupo; Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds; Viper by Bex Hogan; and The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie
I’ve done a little better when it comes to the young adult books, I actually own nine of these, but I’ve only actually read two of them. I adored Evermore but Two Can Keep A Secret was a little disappointing to be honest
The Guilty Party by Mel McGrath; Your Guilty Secret by Rebecca Thornton; The Dangerous Kind by Deborah O’Connor; Control by Hugh Montgomery; Sex, Power, Money by Sara Pascoe; The October Man by Ben Aaronovitch; Cold As The Grave by James Oswald; Endgame by Daniel Cole; and The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
We’re back to doing not so well for the adult books on my most anticipated list. I own 3 of these but I’ve not read any of them!
Did you make most anticipated lists for 2019? Did you manage to better than me and get to most of yours? Let me know in the comments!
