Top Ten Tuesday | Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half 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!

Hey, friends! Long time, no Top Ten Tuesday! But oh my word, it feels so good to be back! Especially with a topic as good as this week’s! There are so many good books coming out during the last half of 2019, but I am still going to make a top ten ranking of the ten I absolutely cannot wait for, with a single sentence each that hopefully tells you why!

➽ 10.) Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu

Because anything LGBTQIAP+ with bookstores and witches will always get my money.

➽ 9.) The Tea Dragon Festival (Tea Dragon #2) by Katie O’Neill

Because few things in life make me happier than The Tea Dragon Society!

➽ 8.) Girls of Storm and Shadow (Girls of Paper and Fire #2) by Natasha Ngan

Because seeing an ownvoices queer, Asian book, staring a f/f romance, make The New York Times Best Seller list is all I’ve ever wanted, and all I continue to want.

➽ 7.) The Never Tilting World (The Never Tilting World #1) by Rin Chupeco

Because Rin Chupeco answers all my prayers!

➽ 6.) Dead Voices (Small Spaces #2) by Katherine Arden

Because Katherine Arden is my lyrical writing bae, forever.

➽ 5.) His Hideous Heart

Because this is the anthology to end all other anthologies, because of Rin Chupeco and Kendare Blake reimagining Edgar Allan Poe.

➽ 4.) Steel Crow Saga (Steel Crow Saga #1) by Paul Krueger

Because this is a Filipino author, inspired by his love of anime.

➽ 3.) Gideon the Ninth (The Ninth House #1) by Tamsyn Muir

Because, yes, I’ve already read this, but it’s my favorite debut of all time and you all need lesbian necromancers in your life, damn it!

➽ 2.) Ninth House (Alex Stern #1) by Leigh Bardugo

Because I’m that bitch, but you all are, too!

➽ 1.) The Queen of Nothing (The Folk of the Air #3) by Holly Black

Because this wouldn’t be a Meltotheany list without a Holly Black as my #1!

Okay, friends! I hope you enjoyed this half as much as I did writing it up! Please, let me know what is your most anticipated release for the last half of the year! And, as always, I’m wishing you all the happiest of reading!

  1. I’m super excited for Queen Of Nothings (naturally) and Ninth House. I also really need to get on and read Girls Of Paper And Fire as it sounds amazing! I’m not sure if I could actually pick just ten books for the rest of the year as I’m desperate to read The Beautiful and then about half a dozen in September alone.

  2. I’m super excited for Mooncakes! It looks so adorable and cute! Also, highly anticipating the second book in The Tea Dragon Society! Katie O’Neill posted some sneak peeks on her Instagram and I’m living for them right now!

      1. I hope so too! ❤️ That’s always the thing I worry about the most is whether or not someone will love the books I’ve fallen in love with. Always questioning if I’m pushing too much hype onto the book and may cause the person to put it off.

  4. Oooh, didn’t know Girls of Paper and Fire was getting a sequel this year! Love that cover, and it sounds amazing. I didn’t know Small Spaces was getting a sequel so soon, either. 😮 Where have I been? I enjoyed the first one, so I’ll definitely have to check that out. I’ve got ARCs of Steel Crow Saga and Gideon the Ninth, and I’m so impatient to get to reading them. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed Gideon the Ninth. I want to love it so much, and I’ve heard so many good things about it already. xD

    Here’s my TTT post.

  5. “Because I’m that bitch, but you all are, too!” is the best reason for being excited about a release that I’ve seen yet. I’m also that bitch and excited for that one. I’m also excited to see a second Tea Dragon book!

  8. Alll of these are on my list too! Can’t believe I haven’t gotten to Small Spaces yet, but it sounds like the perfect Halloween read, so it’s fine. GoSaS’ cover is *amazing* and I hope I enjoy it so much more than the first book! I am so happy that queer Asian voices are being heard in the world. I’m not much of an anthology person, but I might have to try His Hideous Heart when it comes out because of the same reasons as yours! Rin Chupeco’s story sounds especially interesting. I’m can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Gideon the Ninth because it’s been getting tons of rave reviews and it follows lesbian! Necromancers! I also can’t wait for Leigh Bardugo and Holly Black for come to me in the consecutive months of October and November. Great list and I hope you enjoy all of these 😍💕
