Books I Plan To Read in 2019 Because Of Other Bloggers

I’ve never really understood what it meant to have an overflowing TBR until I joined the book community. 💘 Bloggers are constantly raving about new (and old) releases that wrecked their hearts, and you might call me crazy but I’d like to have my heart destroyed by a wonderful book, too. 😭 I saw that Kelly from Just Another Book in the Wall wrote this post for a Top Ten Tuesday meme, and I decided to join in on the fun! Here are 10 books I plan to read in 2019 because of other bloggers (in no particular order):

1. Shealea from That Bookshelf Bitch

Jade City by Fonda Lee. 34606064Despite what her blog name might say, Shealea is actually one of the biggest champions of authors and their books that I’ve met. 🎉 She never fails to be an advocate for diverse books, and I trust her recommendations 100%. I always see her talking screaming about this book on her blog and Twitter, so I know I definitely have to read it next year!

2. Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams

35959740Circe by Madeline Miller. It’s no secret that 1) Lily is a tough critic when it comes to books and 2) she has the most eloquent writing ever(!?!) 💞 This girl doesn’t give out 5-star ratings easily, so when she says a book is blindingly gorgeous, you have to trust her and add that book in your TBR pile. I’m also a huge lover of Greek mythology, so I absolutely cannot wait to get lost in this beautiful book and its writing.

3. Marie from Drizzle of Hurricane and Books

Girl Out of Water by 29640839Laura Silverman. I always trust Marie’s reviews and recommendations, especially when it comes to contemporary books. 💘 I really want to read You Asked For Perfect when it’s released next year, but I plan to start with this release first which Marie claims is “one of her favorite books of all time.” In other words, how can I not add it to my TBR?

4. Vicky from Vicky Who Reads

34433755Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Nagan. Vicky is also another blogger who never fails to be a champion for authors and diverse reads. I’m so ashamed that I haven’t picked up this book yet because it’s one of my most highly anticipated books this year, but I definitely plan to pick it up in 2019. 😍 Vicky’s raving about this book’s fantastic world-building has me so excited to start reading!

5. May from Forever and Everly 

Darius the Great is 37506437Not Okay by Adib Khorram. I’ve only stumbled upon May’s blog recently, but her tears over this book make me super excited to read it. 🌟 I’m definitely not ready to shed tears of my own, but I love how May describes the relationships and self-discovery of the characters in the book. Plus, the mental health representation in this book(!!!)  is more than enough to make me throw it in my TBR pile.

6. Brianna from Brianna the Bookworm

28449207Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I absolutely love fangirling over books with Brianna. She’s always a DM away, and we have pretty similar tastes in books. Brianna’s inspired me to read Strange the Dreamer because of her love for Muse of Nightmares. ✨ I’ve heard a lot of love for Muse of Nightmares this year around the blogosphere, but I’ve never considered reading it because I hadn’t read the first book. Next year, I’m committed to picking it up!

7. Dezzy from The Thoughtful Voice

34325090I was Born for This by Alice Oseman. True to her blog name, Dezzy is the most thoughtful person ever, and her love for this book is validation that I definitely need to pick it up. 💖 We have a lot of overlapping loves for contemporary books, so I know this is one that I’ll have to try for myself. Alice Oseman is an author I’ve been meaning to try so this will be the perfect starting point in the new year.

8. CW from The Quiet Pond

35430013A Thousand Beginnings and Endings. CW is another wonderful champion of diverse reads (and shameless plug: she’s also an extremely talented artist. Two words: Christmas corgis! 🐶🎄 ) I’ve been meaning to read this book ever since she started gushing about it on Twitter. I actually bought the Kindle version when it was on sale but never gotten around to reading it. Next year, this book is at the top of my TBR!

9. Fadwa from Word Wonders

The City of Brass 32718027by S.A. Chakraborty. I really really wanted to join Fadwa’s Twitter read-along for this book because the sequel is coming out, and I hadn’t even read the first book! 😱 Unfortunately, school and exams got in the way of things, but Fadwa’s endless support for this book inspires me to read it sometime in the new year. Plus, the cover is absolutely gorgeous, and the plot sounds amazing.

10. Malanie from Malanie Loves Fiction

32620332The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Malanie’s blog is also one I discovered more recently, but it’s filled with such festivities and amazingness~ I have heard such amazing things about this book, and Malanie’s love for it makes me so excited and scared to read it! Like many others who’ve read this book, Malanie said it made her shed millions of tears…and I am ready but not ready?! 😭

  1. OH MY GOODNESS. This post is absolutely lovely and warms my heart. Thank you for including me, Tiffany!
    (To be honest, I was trying to guess who’d be associated with Jade City – either Shealea or me HAHA.) But I’m SUPER HAPPY that you’re thinking of picking up A THOUSAND BEGINNINGS AND ENDINGS! It’s honestly so good and I think you will really love it. ❤
