Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week's topic is:
Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019

I'm trying to get back into participating in Top Ten Tuesday again, and I'm off to a great start, coming up with only 9 books for this week's topic, lol. I know I'll be kicking myself after this posts, when I inevitably remember all of the releases that I was looking forward to in the latter part of 2019. Here's what I've got for now, though:

1. Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I can't tell you how excited I am for this first book in the Ronan Lynch-centered Dreamer Trilogy!

2. Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rise of Kyoshi by F.C. Yee with Michael Dante DiMartino

I LOVE all things Avatar: The Last Airbender and was swooning over the posters featuring the cover art that were given out at last year's YALLFest. Thrilled to finally be able to read the book soon!

3. Reticence by Gail Carriger

The final Custard Protocol book is almost here, and I'm both sad to see the series end but also looking forward to one last adventure with the crew of The Spotted Custard.

4. The Magnolia Sword: A Ballad of Mulan by Sherry Thomas

Another beautiful cover, and what sounds like a fantastic Mulan retelling.

5. The How & the Why by Cynthia Hand

Adoption is the subject of Cynthia Hand's upcoming novel, and as an adoptee, I'm quite interested to read this.

6. Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab

I need to get a move on reading the first book, City of Ghosts, lol.

7. Angel Mage by Garth Nix

Angels + magic + Garth Nix? Yes, please!

8. The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys

Ruta Sepetys writes incredible historical fiction and here turns her focus on Spain during Franco's dictatorship.

9. The Institute by Stephen King

Stephen King's nonfiction On Writing forever changed my world recently, and it's about time I finally read his fiction.

What books are you most looking forward to in the next few months?


  1. I still need to read City of Ghosts too! I'm also very much excited for a Ronan Lynch trilogy.


    1. I hope to get to City of Ghosts soon. And I can't believe Call Down the Hawk is almost here; the wait seems like it's been forever, lol.

  2. The Magnolia Sword has been popping up everywhere this week. I hope it's good!

    My TTT.

  3. Call Down The Hawk, The Fountains of Silence and Tunnel of Bones were all on my list this week too!

    1. There are so many great books releasing over the next few months; my wallet is going to be so sad, lol.

  4. This weeks topic is reminding me just how many good books we're all about to be devouring before the year ends. Swoon!

    1. So true! Very much looking forward to reading all of these!

  5. I have the same problem- this topic was kinda hard for me because I KNOW I have a lot of books I'm waiting for, but I couldn't remember any of them lol.

    1. I even went through my TBR shelf on Goodreads and still had trouble, lol, because a lot of the books on it are backlist titles. At first I only had like 4 books on my list, and then luckily a few more popped into my head!

  6. Totally agree on Call Down the Hawk and Tunnel of Bones. Can't wait for those!!
