Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme now hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (July 16th) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half of 2019

  • I'm still kind of playing catch-up on the weeks that I missed posting a TTT.  I really love posting about these upcoming releases every year, so I didn't want to fully miss this topic.
  • Here is what I was obsessing over for the first half of 2019.
  • And here is what I'm anxious to read from July - December:

1.  Here There Are Monsters by Amelinda Bérubé- Release Date 8/1
  • It's billed as Blair Witch meets Imaginary Girls.  That's SOOOOO me.
2.  She's the Worst by Lauren SpiellerRelease Date: 9/3
  • This looks cute and also serious.  Siblings, college, childhood, family secrets.  I like everything this has going for it.
3.  The Hive by Barry Lyga & Morgan BadenRelease Date: 9/3
  • I lovvvveedddd We Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga.  Because of that, I'm signed up to read every book this author writes.  It's the rule.
4.  City of Beasts by Corrie WangRelease Date: 9/17
  • Did you read The Takedown??  I was obsessed with it.  It's my fave book that I've read so far this year.  This book is a lot more in the fantasy genre, but I still am really excited for it.
5.  Imaginary Friend by Stephen ChboskyRelease Date: 10/1
  • His first book since 1999???  And it's about a mill-town in PA??  Oh yes, I will read it.

6.  The Grace Year by Kim LiggettRelease Date: 10/8
  • I love that this book is like the fantasy version of Rumspringa.
7.  Lifestyles of Gods and Monsters by Emily Roberson- Release Date 10/20
  • This is a book right out of 2013.  And I neeeeed it.
8.  Call Down the Hawk by Maggie StiefvaterRelease Date: 11/5
  • I really need to reread The Raven Boys series (so that I can actually read The Raven King for the first time) before this comes out.

9.  The How and the Why by Cynthia Hand- Release Date: 11/5

  • I think this book sounds beautiful and sad.  And I need that every now and again.

10.  Scared Little Rabbits by A.V. Geiger- Release Date: 12/1

  • I so loved Follow Me Back.  I read it in one night.  I am really excited to see what else this author has up her sleeve!!

What upcoming books are you excited about?


  1. Great list! I'm so intrigued by Lifestyles of Gods and Monsters and She's the Worst sounds really fun. =)

  2. Definitely Imaginary Friend and Call Down the Hawk!!!


    1. Right??!!!! They are both SO exciting bc I didn't know if we'd ever get either one!! Like, who knew Stephen Chbosky was going to write another book 20 years later--- and I know we all hoped for more Raven Boys, but did we actually think we would get it!!!???!!!

  3. I haven't read any of these!! I'll have to look into them.
    Genesis @ Whispering Chapters

  4. I heard great things about The Grace Year :). Kim Liggett's writing is fantastic and I enjoyed all her previous books and cannot wait to read this one.

    1. I haven't read anything by her, but when I read that description it was an immediate YES!!!

  5. Imaginary Friend looks creepy! Oooh - I won a copy of The Grace Year from Goodreads, can't wait to start it!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. Go you!!! I've been trying to win a Goodreads Giveaway for YEARS!!!

  6. Here There Are Monsters sounds like such a good read.

    My TTT.

  7. Lifestyles of Gods and Monsters sounds good. I still want to read Maggie Stiefvater's books.

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

  9. Ooh I like the sound of Scared Little rabbits! Just went over and read Goodreads- yup adding that!

    1. Her first book was awesome!!! In a guilty pleasure kind of way. I mean, I don't even like romance and it was REALLY romantic, but I was still HOOKED.

  10. Right there with you for She's the Worst (and thanks to your tour, I am reading it!!!). I am curious about the new Hand and Geiger books too.

    1. I am SO excited for that tour!!! And that book!!!

  11. She's the Worst sounds really good!

    My TTT post!
