Stuff on Sunday: New Releases On My Wishlist for the Second Half of 2019


I know it’s Sunday, but this post is inspired by the week’s topic on  Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl , so credit where credit is due.



It may be a cliche, but it’s almost inconceivable to me that we are half way through the year already. Returning to blogging has added a structure to my days that I’ve been lacking, and time seems to be moving faster now that I’m working to schedules and deadlines again.

Anyway, I was inspired by this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic to take a look at the upcoming new releases for the rest of the year.

This isn’t an exhaustive list (obviously), it’s a bit of a mixed bag including contemporary romance, non-fiction, fantasy, and crime fiction. I didn’t think too deeply about what I chose to include in this post, though I tried to pick up a few from each month. None of the books are currently on my review schedule , though I have requested a few (but have yet to be approved). I’ve ordered the books by month of release rather than any particular level of desirability.

Let me know what’s on your wishlist!

  1. Ooh I am excited for quite a few of these as well. Syria’s Secret Library sounds amazing, I love stuff like that. I am not sure how I’ve never read any of Rachel Caine’s library series…..I must rectify that. New Jojo Moyes looks like it might be interesting. There’s a few other covers here that catch my eye, so I will have to look them up

  2. Read the blurb that accompanies the book jacket for Going Under and it’s a bit ‘OMG’ 😀

    I have Twenty-One Truths in my TBR stack. I enjoyed his last book (far from perfect but the premise was good, so I’m looking forward to seeing what he dos here).


  3. Bookish Life and Things You Save in a Fire are on my own wishlist. I’m happy to see titles I didn’t know about and can possibly add them to the list. (though my list would be buckling under itself if it was a real list, lol)


  4. What a great list! I am also pleased to see there is a new Jojo Moyes book coming out – and I have the first book in the Elly Griffiths series in my TBR which I need to hurry up and read… Thank you for sharing.


  5. There are a bunch here I’m looking forward to — Things You Save in a Fire, the new Jojo Moyes, The LIbrary of the Unwritten. And the others look great too!
