2019 has a lot of exciting books in store for us! I can’t wait to get stuck in! Today I will be talking about some 2019 releases that have piqued my interest.
The Hod King – Josiah Bancroft
The Hod King is the 3rd book in The Tower of Babel series. I read the first book Senlin Ascends last April and it was my favourite book of 2018. It follows Thomas Senlin who travels to the Tower of Babel, with his new wife Marya but he loses her and spends the rest of the book traversing the tower in search for her. I haven’t read the 2nd book in the series yet but I just loved his first book so much I can’t help but get excited for new additions in the series.
Finale – Stephanie Garber
Same case as The Hod King. Finale is the final book in the Caraval trilogy. I read the first book Caraval, last February and absolutely loved it. I still haven’t read the 2nd book in the trilogy, Legendary, but I loved the first book so much I’m just so excited for new instalments. Fairyloot, a UK based book subscription box, is doing a very special box all about Finale and I really want to purchase it.
The Priory of the Orange Tree – Samantha Shannon
This story is told through multiple perspectives and focuses on Ead Duryan, an outsider turned lady-in-waiting who uses forbidden magic to protect the Queen, who is being targeted by assassins.
I have been hyped for this book since November as initially, I thought it was Fairyloot’s book for their December box. I love multi-perspective novels and I’m really intrigued about where this story will go especially as it seems the main characters are women.
The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Choski
Set in Paris in the 1800’s we meet Séverin Montagnet-Alarie, as treasure hunter. He is given the task of a life time when he is told to find an ancient artifcat for an ancient society called the Order of Babel . In order to get this artifact though, he will need a team of experts.
I’m getting a very strong Indiana Jones and Ocean’s Eleven vibe from this book so I am excited to read this! I haven’t read many books set in Paris either so it will be nice to explore Paris in book form.
The Similars – Rebecca Hanover
The Similars is a YA sci-fi novel focusing on a character called Emmalina who’s best friend, Oliver, died that summer. Trying to get over the grief of losing Oliver she comes face to face with Levi… her Oliver’s clone. Six clones arrive at her high school and even though she doesn’t want to get involved with them she can’t help but feel the pull. Soon she gets mixed up in the dark truth’s about her school and the clones.
I have never read a book like this before. Sci-fi isn’t really my genre but this sounds so intriguing so I really want to give this a try!
