Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with the list of all the books I’ve preordered for this year, plus a bonus that I’ve already preordered for 2020!


The Lost Queen

The Lost Queen – Signe Pike

04 June 2019

I mean this is pitched as Merlin meets Outlander and that sounds completely perfect. Merlin is one of my favourites and I’ll read/watch anything Artur related, I actually haven’t seen Outlander but I love the general vibe I get from it and I know that a lot of people are obsessed with it so that gives me hope.

I’m going to be completely honest, I don’t know much else other than it’s been compared to Outlander and Merlin but, this is a big book, so I’m hoping to get to it in my school break or towards the end of the year. Either way, I’m very excited to read this and I can’t wait for my paperback copy to come out!

Capturing the Devil (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #4)

Capturing the Devil – Kerri Maniscalco

10 September 2019

So, if you’re new here, Hi! πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹ and I love the Stalking Jack The Ripper series. I’ve only read books 1 and 2 but I know that I love the writing style and characters so I had no qualms with preordering this one. Especially, since I know that I probably won’t have the time to buy it in a bookstore when this comes out! I still haven’t read book 3 but I’m planning on reading it later this year for Destiny’s #Stalkalong, so that should be super exciting!

Imaginary Friend

Imaginary Friend – Stephen Chbosky

01 October 2019

Okay, so I’m going t be completely honest with you guys, I only pre-ordered this because I’m currently reading Perks and loving it. I know nothing about Chbosky’s new book other than it looks completely out of my comfort zone but I’m willing it to give it a try.

If this is anything near as meaningful and/or heartbreaking as Perks is, I’ll be happy. Even though I know nothing about this I’m super pumped to read it, just because I’m so one over by Perks.

Come Tumbling Down (Wayward Children, #5)

Come Tumbling Down – Seanan McGuire

07 Jan 2020

This is technically a 2019 release but it comes out in the first week of January so fight me alright? I love this series and I’ll probably keep preordering them for as long as Seanan McGuire keeps writing them. They’re short but they always pack a punch – even book 3 which a lot of people seem to not like as much as they should. I mean, I respect your opinions even if you’re absolutely wrong.

    1. I know how you feel, I generally don’t preorder unless I’m on a budget or I know I’m going to have no chance of picking it up when it eventually comes out, hence all the books on this list!


  1. These all look fabulous!

    I don’t generally preorder books, but I also don’t really *buy* a lot of books. I’ll preorder if I know 100% I want to buy it and if there’s a preorder incentive. Otherwise, it’s normally slightly cheaper to buy it a little after publication.

    1. I hardly ever preorder books but sometimes if I know I’m going to love a book I will preorder it. I feel you on that, I hardly ever buy books, most of mine come from the library, so if I preorder it’s because I’m pretty positive that I’m going to want to re-read it.

      Yeah, I usually preorder via Bookdepository whenever they have a sale because I’m cheap lol.

  2. ELLYN you had such a perfect opportunity to title this post “To All the Books I’ve Preordered in 2019”

    But anyway I’m also super excited for Chbosky’s new book! I’m glad you’re loving Perks so much!

    1. I have the same issue, it usually takes 2-3 weeks for the books to arrive when I preorder them but I’m usually not too picky and I’ll get the audiobook anyway. It’s more because I can never actually make it into a bookstore.
      Yes, Imaginary Friend looks amazing! πŸ’•


    1. I don’t preorder very often but I had to preorder these ones! Ahh, technically I have to walk past 2 bookstores almost every day to get to Uni but I’ve trained myself to never walk in!


  3. I usually don’t preorder books unless it’s the ebook, but it’s definitely something I want to do more often! I totally need to preorder the new Stalking Jack the Ripper book!

    1. I hardly ever preorder ebooks because Amazon Australia is awful but maybe I’ll try it out again in the future! Yes, CTD looks awesome!


  4. I always mean to preorder books but then promptly forget. The rare few times that I have preordered books though, I’ve ended up getting really frustrated as I receive the book a week or so AFTER the publication date when I could have just gone and bought it in the shop and read it sooner

    1. I know how you feel, I only preordered some of these because I was already purchasing some other books at the same time! I feel that SO HARD – preorders never come on time, especially because I’m intl but because I can never make it to the bookstore they’re mostly the only option unless I want to wait even longer at the library.
