Predicting My Top 10 Books of 2019

Hey everyone! These are my predictions for my favorite books of the year. Last year, I was so far off on my predictions, mostly because I ended up not reading a majority of the ones I predicted. Either way, it’s fun thinking about it! The entire list is very fantasy heavy, but I have a strong feeling there will be around three or four contemporary/mystery novels on here as well. I just couldn’t think of any that stood out.


1.) Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas

2.) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

January 2019 TBR

Hey guys. It had been quite a while since I last posted. Just been very busy! Hoping to post more regularly starting now; definitely expect TBRs, wrapups, and reviews 😉

Anyways, here are my reading plans for the first month of the new year. I am just getting out of a reading slump, and hope I can continue this upward trend heading out of the holidays. I have a very ambitious stack of books planned, but I’m optimistic that the fresh start of a new year will give me some motivation to complete them all!


1.) Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

Image result for tower of dawn

The SOLE reason I haven’t read this book yet is because I am intimidated by how long it is. However, I am dying to finish this series, I know I will love this, and I’ve put it off for too long. This will (hopefully..) be the month I pull the trigger and read this.


2.) Two Dark Reign by Kendare Blake

I read and LOVED the first two books in this series in 2018, and received the third installment as a Christmas gift. I can’t wait to read this, and it should be one of the first ones I start.


3.) The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan

Image result for magnus chase and the gods of asgard book 3

I just read and really enjoyed the third book in Rick Riordan’s Trial of Apollo series, so I am really in the mood to read more in the Percy Jackson world. While I wasn’t crazy about the second book in the Magnus Chase trilogy, I have high hopes for this conclusion.


4.) This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher

Image result for this lie will kill youThis is another book I received as a Christmas gift, and it is a brand new release. This past year, mystery/thrillers have been my go-to reads, and I wanted to make sure I had one to read to bridge the fantasy books I have planned. This looks like a typical, exciting YA mystery that I’ll just love.


5.) One Blood Ruby by Melissa Marr

Image result for one blood ruby book

This is the sequel and concluding novel to Seven Black Diamonds, which was a surprisingly good fantasy book I read a while back. The pacing of the first book was really well done, and the large cast of POVs made the story very gripping. I’m expecting a lot from this one.


6.) Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Image result for unravel me

I’ve had all three books in this trilogy for a while, and this is the year where I complete all my unfinished series. I enjoyed Shatter Me, so I don’t know why I haven’t continued on with its sequels yet. However, I’m looking forward to it.
