Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Hey everyone! I’m so excited to finally do this feature/meme on my blog! I’ve been thinking about joining the fun since last year, but I guess I got a bit caught up with all of college buzzes. But now, I’m here! Today’s prompt is the most anticipated releases for the first half of 2019, but I decided to do a lil twist of my own! I’m going to pick two books from each of my preferred genres.

  1. OMG Christina Riccio’s book cover is giving artist me LIFE. I’m also super anticipating King of Scars because I MISS MY NIKOLAI OK AHHHH 😍 Love this Vinny!!!

    1. IKR KATE??!! I think my biggest reason of loving contemporary is because of their pretty covers most of the time! Oh, and I’ve never Bardugo’s works before (my Six of Crows duology is still not here yet!), so I’m not familiar with Nikolai? Is he a part of another book before? And thank you, Kate!

  2. I’m really looking forward to King of Fools (The Shadow Game #2) by Amanda Foody. Ace of Shades was one of my best reads last year. I read both the Last 8 and The Similars and enjoyed both.

  3. This is such a great list! I’m very excited to read Again, But Better, it sounds like such a good book. I also can’t wait to read You’d Be Mine, because it sounds adorable and music and road trips and everything ahhh, and I’m excited for The Similars, it sounds so mysterious and cool 🙂
    Happy reading! 🙂
