Some of my most anticipated books of 2019

At the end of last year, I mentioned doing a post focusing on some of my most anticipated releases for the new year. Since then, it seems everyone and their dog has done a post like that so obviously my idea wasn’t as original as I thought it was. Anyway, I decided to share this list regardless and hopefully you’ll find something that will pique your interest.

Listed by publication date for digital and hardcover copies.


Steve Cavanagh – Twisted
Matt Wesolowski – Changeling
Will Dean – Red Snow
Steph Broadribb – Deep Dirty Truth
Diane Setterfield – Once Upon A River


Angela Marsons – Dead Memories
Jo Spain – Dirty Little Secrets
Stacey Halls – The Familiars
Louise Beech – Call Me Star Girl
C.J. Tudor – The Taking of Annie Thorne
Alex Michaelides – The Silent Patient


Gillian McAllister – The Evidence Against You

| MAY |

Stuart MacBride – All That’s Dead
Alison Weir – Anna of Kleve : Queen of Secrets
Sarah Hilary – Never Be Broken
Melanie Golding – Little Darlings

| JUNE |

Karin Slaughter – The Last Widow
Alex North – The Whisper Man

| JULY |

Riley Sager – Lock Every Door


Sharon Bolton – The Poisoner

This is a weird one but I’ve included it anyway. I could have sworn the original publication date was May but Amazon now lists it as December 2020, which quite frankly I refuse to believe because I WANT IT NOW!

Honourable mention to Johana Gustawsson and the third book in the Roy & Castells series.

I have a feeling it’s going to be a great bookish year once again! Which book(s) are you looking forward to the most? Do let me know and I hope you’ve found something in this list that caught your eye. Happy reading! xx

    Fab list! I’m thinking about getting the audiobook of Once Upon A River as I think I’ll enjoy more in that format.

    Lots to look forward to! I especially look forward to Lock Every Door and the third book in the Roy & Castells series! From my own list I look foward to discovering the new book by Chris McGeorge. I really liked Guess Who and I want to discover if his sequel is just as great as his debut. Fingers crossed.

      Guess Who is one of those books that has been on my Kindle for ages and I still haven’t read it!

    The cover of the Changeling intrigued me so much I had to see what it was about, then of course I had to buy it… I might as well start the year as I mean to go on and spend all my money on books!

    Great list of books there, 2019 is showing good potential for a wonderful year of reading. I’m looking forward to Steve Cavanagh’s Twisted, the new Sophie Kinsella one and the new Sharon Bolton one. Plus of course I have my huge backlist of tbr’s, which now includes books 1, 2 and 3 of the Kay Hunter mysteries!

      Apparently not. So very rude. Although I do wonder, if it has been pushed back, why 18 months? That seems quite long.
