🌻Slayer by Kiersten White : 

  • Release date : January 8th 2019
  • Buffy. That’s it. That’s the reason. It’s Buffy-related, I gotta read it. 

🌻King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo : 

  • Release date : January 29th 2019 
  • Leigh “My Lord and Savior” Bardugo has two spots on this list and I think it’s not just because I love her books. I really like her as a person (granted, I’ve never met her and only know her from her social media presence) and I shall stan her til I die.

🌻The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides : 

  • Release date : February 5th 2019
  • I keep hearing great things about this and one of the MC is a criminal psychotherapist.

🌻The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon : 

  • Release date : February 26th 2019
  • I’m glad to know I wasn’t the only one to say “The Priority” because apparently, I can’t read. This is a high-fantasy that has received a lot of high praise and even been compared to Lord of the Rings ! 

🌻You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman

  • Release date : March 5th 2019
  • One reason why I wanna pick this up is because it discusses academic pressure in high school. I think it’s important to remember that high school isn’t all rainbow and prom for most of us (at least, it sure as hell wasn’t for me). 

🌻Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

  • Release date : March 5th 2019
  • Not only have I heard so much about this book, it seems really different. I’ve really enjoyed Reid’s writing in The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and I have faith in her ability to write powerful female MCs. 

🌻Squad by Mariah MacCarthy : 

  • Release date : March 12th 2019
  • On Goodreads, it says “This darkly comic debut novel by an award-winning playwright is like Mean Girls meets Heathers with a splash of Bring it On.”  DO YOU NEED MORE THAN THAT ? Just take my money. 

🌻Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan : 

  • Release date : April 30th 2019
  • I mean… The title and the cover. Come on. This calls to me on a spiritual level. 

🌻Again, but Better by Christine Riccio : 

  • Release date : May 7th 2019
  • Yes, I’ve been watching Christine’s videos for a long time and I really like her personality and content. However, this book discusses… COLLEGE ! Finally ! I don’t remember reading a YA contemporary with a MC in college since Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I’m so excited. 

🌻Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo : 

  • Release date : October 1st 2019
  • Secret societies ? In Yale ? An ex-convict ? I’m in. This is an ADULT FICTION FOLKS not YA.
