I’m back with a post featuring some 2019 book releases that are already out, but that I want to eventually get around to reading! I am so excited for all of these!
I’ve been using my library a lot more recently as I can’t really justify buying books at the moment, so hopefully they get some of these in so I can read them! I’m loving using the library and they are getting some new books in quite frequently so I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
Until then I will share my excitement with you guys, and feel free to let me know down below what releases you’re excited for!
With The Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
First off this cover is GORGEOUS. Also this sounds so unique and so brilliant. I’ve read nothing but amazing reviews about it, and it has really made me super hyped for it! I love a good contemporary and one about a single mum following her dreams as a chef? It just sounds so wholesome and I can’t wait!

Title: The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell
Release: 17th May 2018
Synopsis: Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora’s mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans. When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.
The Wolf Wilder is a beautiful and illustrated journey through love, determination and standing up for what you believe in.

Title: The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas
Release: 9th May 2017
Synopsis: There are secrets around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about what happened there that last summer. She and her childhood best friend Callie never talked about what they saw. Not before the trial. And certainly not after. But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette–to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth. Only the closer Tessa gets to what really happened, the closer she gets to a killer–and this time, it won’t be so easy to run away.
A debut that packs a punch, this is Kara Thomas at her finest. The writing style is completely captivating and the POV of the story pulled me in from the very first page.

Title:What The Flower Says of Death by Danielle Koste
Release: 14th November 2017
Synopsis: After a failed suicide attempt, she finds herself dumped by her callous mother on the doorstep of her family’s desolate oceanside estate. With only the company of her estranged grandmother, comatose grandfather, and the monsters in her head, at least there was no one to interfere with her plans to try again on her eighteenth birthday.
No one, except maybe Jack: a skeleton of a boy who says he’s there to rake her grandmother’s leaves, yet seems more experienced at stalking than grounds-keeping. She knows he’s keeping a secret behind his gentle smiles and aloofness, but it’s difficult for Violet to be put off by his untimely thin-air appearances when figuring out the mystery of his true identity makes for such a good distraction.
Violet’s trauma is deeper than the wound on her wrist though, and it cannot be simply whisked away in a whirlwind of guessing games and pleasant gestures. She struggles to reconnect with her grandmother, find forgiveness for her mother, and closure with her grandfather’s dire condition, all while battling the strain of it all on her family. Even with a flicker of something hopeful blossoming within herself, Violet knows her birthday plans must be inevitable. Death wouldn’t be there for her if it wasn’t.Review:
A beautiful and powerful book focusing on mental health, grief and the truly life-changing hardships of learning to live again.
