Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! I realised recently that I haven’t been recommending as many books lately so I thought I would remedy that and today I’m coming at you with book recommendations for 2019 book releases!
- In An Absent Dream ★★★★☆
This came out in January so it’s been a long while since I actually read it but I definitely loved it. I am a bit torn about this book, it’s not my favourite because I don’t *love* the main character but, I think The Goblet Market is one of my favourite and most complex worlds that we’ve been too in this series! I truly can’t wait to re-read this book and re-visit The Goblin Market asap!
- The Gilded Wolves ★★★★☆
This is actually the book that inspired me to get back into writing book reviews regularly. I loved reading this because it feels like a mix of two of my favourite things Invictus by Ryan Graudin and National Treasure. Because it has a great mix of found family and a compelling mystery.

- Daisy Jones & The Six ★★★☆☆
Listen, this book had so much potential and I genuinely think it’s going to be a great tv show but it wasn’t the book for me. That being said, I think it has an amazing audiobook and it has also made a massive impact on a lot of other readers so if it sounds interesting to you and you haven’t read it yet, you should definitely give it a try because I still think it’s an interesting story.

- Moonstruck Vol 2 ★★★☆☆
I discovered this series this year and was kind of blown away by how cute and fun it is??? Like, it’s just pure and there’s coffee and it’s diverse and I love it so much??? Honestly, if you can check this out from your library or get it from your local book store I definitely recommend it!
- Girls on The Verge ★★★★★
This was definitely one of the best books I read this year and it was also one of the shortest. It focused on abortion and women’s rights concerning their own bodies, especially in the US. It makes a giant impact with a short amount of pages and I really think that more people should be reading it because I really believe it should be getting more attention and that it’s important for all different people to read.
- The Unhoneymooners ★★★★★
I have never been much of a romance reader but this year I decided to finally pull my head out of my ass and finally give the genre a go since I’d never really given it a fair shot in the past. I ended up buddy reading this with Malka and I am SO glad I did because we had a blast chatting about this book together! I had so much fun reading this and I even bought my own copy once I finished it!
- Red, White & Royal Blue ★★★★★
This wasn’t my favourite book of the year but it is definitely one of the best books of the year! It was really intense and really cute and I honestly appreciate the author for writing this because while I found reading this so hard, I also had so much fun and enjoyed myself while I was reading it.
- The Bride Test ★★★★☆
This was definitely a great book but, I still think that book one was better. That being said, this was SO worth the read because even though I barely connected with the main character or the love interest, I couldn’t tell you the last time I stayed up until 1am reading a book, but I did with this one! And, to me that says a lot!
