Starting off the new year with a bunch of new books is the perfect way to kick off 2019. Today I’ll be sharing the books I received in January through publishers (thank you!) and my local library.
Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee (courtesy Rick Riordan Presents & Disney Book Group)
Dragon Pearl was the perfect way to start my middle grade reading in 2019. I’ve been using my Dragon Pearl water bottle almost every day at school and I can’t get over the lollipop that came along with the book.
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy (courtesy of Wunderkind PR and IMPRINT)
I knew I wanted to reread Dumplin’ after watching its Netflix adaptation. I loved Dumplin’ even more upon my reread, and I plan on picking up Puddin’ from the library on my next trip in.
Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett (ARC) (courtesy of Simon Pulse)
I am seriously still in shock that I have my most anticipated release of 2019, Serious Moonlight, in my possession! Jenn Bennett is one of my favorite contemporary authors, so I cannot wait to dive in ASAP! Serious Moonlight comes out on April 16, 2019.
Bloodwitch + The Witchlands series by Susan Dennard (courtesy of Tor Teen)
Maybe blame it on the chilly weather, but for some reason I reach for more fantasy during the winter. That being said, I am so excited to redive into The Witchlands series with Truthwitch, Windwitch, and the upcoming installment, Bloodwitch. Bloodwitch comes out on February 12, 2019.
I’m also very much in love with my Witchlands swag, which includes phone-friendly gloves, a Witchlands pin, a pouch reading “Hanging on by a thread,” and a tote bag featuring the Witchlands’ map.
Current Library Haul
The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden – I promise that this will be the last time I mention The Winter of the Witch until I devour this conclusion to the Winternight trilogy and publish my review. I wish I had honestly read it already, but it took about 2 weeks for it to come from the country library. Even though I’ve had my eye on those beautiful UK paperbacks and Book Depository awaits…
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein- I’ve decided to push myself to read more of one of my favorite genres in 2019, historical fiction. Code Name Verity is a much-loved read among historical fiction fans and I actual like this cover better than the one featuring the field.
