10 Most Anticipated Releases for the Rest of 2019

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.

So, since today is a free prompt, I decided to go with a list that has been revolving around the community for a while and to be honest, because I just have no self-control and keep adding books to my TBR! However, I’m particularly anticipating these ten titles and hopefully, I can get to read them all this year!

When 16-year-old poetry blogger Tessa Dickinson is involved in a car accident and loses her eyesight for 100 days, she feels like her whole world has been turned upside-down. 

Terrified that her vision might never return, Tessa feels like she has nothing left to be happy about. But when her grandparents place an ad in the local newspaper looking for a typist to help Tessa continue writing and blogging, an unlikely answer knocks at their door: Weston Ludovico, a boy her age with bright eyes, an optimistic smile…and no legs.

Knowing how angry and afraid Tessa is feeling, Weston thinks he can help her. But he has one condition — no one can tell Tessa about his disability. And because she can’t see him, she treats him with contempt: screaming at him to get out of her house and never come back. But for Weston, it’s the most amazing feeling: to be treated like a normal person, not just a sob story. So he comes back. Again and again and again.

Tessa spurns Weston’s “obnoxious optimism”, convinced that he has no idea what she’s going through. But Weston knows exactly how she feels and reaches into her darkness to show her that there is more than one way to experience the world. As Tessa grows closer to Weston, she finds it harder and harder to imagine life without him — and Weston can’t imagine life without her. But he still hasn’t told her the truth, and when Tessa’s sight returns he’ll have to make the hardest decision of his life: vanish from Tessa’s world…or overcome his fear of being seen.

100 Days of Sunlight is a poignant and heartfelt novel by author Abbie Emmons. If you like sweet contemporary romance and strong family themes then you’ll love this touching story of hope, healing, and getting back up when life knocks you down.

How do I even started with this one? I’ve been hyped about this book for months now and it’s only a matter of days until its publication date (August 7, so mark your calendar!). I’m also incredibly grateful that I got the opportunity to read the ARC of this book and has been chosen to participate in Abbie’s blog tour. On August 5, I’ll post my full review about the book along with a guest post from Abbie herself about how she designed those gorgeous cover! Abbie also agreed to make an appearance on Debut District and she’ll be answering a series of fun questions, especially all about her debut release! Are you as excited as I am?! ARE YOU?! I hope you do, because 100 Days fo Sunlight is exactly how the title sounds and how the cover looks. Everything about it is delicate, soft, warm and I’m just completely swooned by the characters and their stories.

All-American Muslim Girl by Nadine Jolie Courtney
I’m so intrigued when I read the synopsis of this book. I believe we need more books with Muslim rep and this book brings a sensitive issue regarding Islamophobia and I just hope it will be discussed in a graceful manner.

Novice Dragoneer (Dragoneer Academy #1) by E.E. Knight
Can you tell I’m slowly falling for fantasy here? This book sounds very appealing because, uh, dragonriders?! Sign me up.

The Infinite Noise (The Bright Sessions #1) by Lauren Shippen
I’m sooooo ready for this one! A debut involving teenager with superpower but instead of being a superhero, they end up going to a therapy and having a (maybe) chill life? Never think of that possibility before, but I’m here for it!

The Light at the Bottom of the World (The Light at the Bottom of the World #1) by London Shah
Honestly, just the universe setting alone is enough to lure me to pick up this book. But, wait… Joining a competition in order to save a family? Fighting against evil government? A sci-fi debut from a Muslim author? GIVE ME. 

The mesmerizing adult debut from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Leigh Bardugo

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive. 


Do I even need to explain why I included this book in the list? Aside from the massive hype about it, I just completely sucked by its synopsis. An adult fantasy? Check. Unsolved homicide? Check. University setting? Check. Secret societies of the rich? Check. Possible occult practice? Check. Leigh Bardugo, the queen itself? Check, check, check. And have you seen that cover? I know the snake has been a quirky trend this year, but I just can’t control myself to not adore this one. It’s elegant and minimalistic yet still showcasing that dark, mysterious, sinister vibes. And although I still haven’t read my SOC copies by now, I believe that Leigh Bardugo will amaze me (and everyone else!) with her adult fantasy debut!

Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland
As I said before, I’m always a fan of character with powers. I’m not entirely sure about how Kamai’s power works here (like the difference of a dream and a soul), but the mysterious black door that keeps following her is definitely an interesting case to solve!

Children of Virtue and Vengeance (Legacy of Orïsha #2) by Tomi Adeyemi
Well, I just started the first book but only with a few pages in, it has been amazing! So, no need to deny that I’ll highly anticipate the sequel!

Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron
More diversity, more fantasy, more #ownvoices author and I’m so ready! I got the opportunity to read the early copy of this book and participate in a blog tour which hosted by The FFBC on September, so look out for that!

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
I’m always here when it involves magical books and this one stole my heart immediately. Again, the universe setting sounds very interesting and it seems like it will involves multiple tropes but I’m excited for them all!

what’s your most anticipated book for the rest of 2019?
