New Book Releases: January 2019

It’s a new year, and it’s packed full of new releases. I’ve had to whittle January’s new releases list down by a lot, since it’s probably the busiest month of the year and there are so many that I’m looking forward to reading. Here are my most anticipated new releases of the month. If you’d like to see a longer (although still not complete) list of January new releases, check out my Booktube video here!

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus

This is such a good sophomore novel from McManus! I loved it. It’s a thriller set in a small town in which girls keep dying or going missing.

Slayer by Kiersten White

I’m not a massive Buffy fan, but I’m intrigued.

White Stag by Kara Barbieri

This is about the Goblin King!

The Au Pair by Emma Rous

This is a mystery/thriller about twins!

The Suspect by Fiona Barton

I’ve already read this and really enjoyed it! It’s about a journalist who’s investigating the disappearance of two girls who were on their gap year in Thailand.

The Girl King by Mimi Yu

This is about two sisters, one of which is in line to become empress, until their father names their male cousin his heir.

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

Six of Crows in Paris!

Ship of Smoke and Steel by Django Wexler

Django Wexler is attempting a YA fantasy about two sisters and I’m intrigued.

This is about a queer Muslim girl who is outed to her parents and sent to Bangladesh.

    There is SO many amazing books coming out next year and January is a strong start. King of Scars is definitely my most anticipated but I hadn’t heard of dead queens club and now I really want to read that too

      I’m in the middle of King of Scars right now and I’m kind of nervous to continue!
