Anticipated Books: February 2019

Happy February y’all!

So far I’m doing pretty well with my 2019 reading goals, but I’m sad to say of all of my anticipated January releases, I only got to two. Meh, what can you expect when you have work, school, and kids?

February is looking to be even more exciting for books. How is that even possible? Check out some of the books I’m the most excited about coming out this month:

Enchantee by Grita Trelease

February 5 (Available Now!)
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Historical Fiction

Paris in 1789 is a labyrinth of twisted streets, filled with beggars, thieves, revolutionaries—and magicians…

When smallpox kills her parents, Camille Durbonne must find a way to provide for her frail, naive sister while managing her volatile brother. Relying on petty magic—la magie ordinaire—Camille painstakingly transforms scraps of metal into money to buy the food and medicine they need. But when the coins won’t hold their shape and her brother disappears with the family’s savings, Camille must pursue a richer, more dangerous mark: the glittering court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

With dark magic forbidden by her mother, Camille transforms herself into the ‘Baroness de la Fontaine’ and is swept up into life at the Palace of Versailles, where aristocrats both fear and hunger for la magie. There, she gambles at cards, desperate to have enough to keep herself and her sister safe. Yet the longer she stays at court, the more difficult it becomes to reconcile her resentment of the nobles with the enchantments of Versailles. And when she returns to Paris, Camille meets a handsome young balloonist—who dares her to hope that love and liberty may both be possible.

But la magie has its costs. And when Camille loses control of her secrets, the game she’s playing turns deadly. Then revolution erupts, and she must choose—love or loyalty, democracy or aristocracy, freedom or magic—before Paris burns…

Calendar Girls January: Most Anticipated 2019 Release

Happy 2019 Calendar Girls!!!

giphy (2)

This month we’re talking about our most anticipated releases of the year. I’ve already seen a lot of posts on this subject, and y’all, it’s going to be a GREAT year for books. Oh my goodness.

While picked one most anticipated release was not at all difficult for me, it did give me pause that I was skipping over all the other amazing books without even thinking! So I want to take a second to shout-out a few other books I’m super excited for.

 

Slayer and The Winter of the Witch come out THIS WEEK!!!! AH!!! I’ve got the both pre-ordered, though since I ordered them from Barnes and Nobel they likely won’t be here til the end of the week. Children of Virtue and Vengeance, the sequel to Children of Blood and Bone is scheduled to release in March, and will probably be a rare cover-reveal post from me. Because, let’s be honest, it’s going to be fabulous. Daisy Jones and the Six is also scheduled for March, and I’m already hearing a lot of great buzz for it.

I also read somewhere that Doors of Stone, the final book in The Kingkiller Chronicles, and The Mirror and the Light, the final Thomas Cromwell book, are rumored to be coming out this year. I’ll believe it when I see it.

But none of those holds a single candle to my most anticipated release of the year. When I heard about this book in November and read the tantalizing synopsis, guys I lost it. There is literally zero chance I will not love this book. The only question is will I survive waiting for its November release date????

So without further ado, my most anticipated release of 2019 is… Continue reading
