New Year’s Eve is finally here! Here are my top three magical Monday reads that I cannot wait to read for the New Year of 2019!
1…The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
My excitement for this book is an absolute understatement! I devoured The Night Circus and if anyone knows about Erin Morgenstern you would know that The Night Circus was the debut novel for this author! There are few authors out there where their first novel is an unequivocal masterpiece and The Night Circus is in this category for so many reasons! If you haven’t read Morgenstern’s work and you want to experience the reasons why her writing is pure magic then read The Night Circus before the November release of The Starless Sea!
2…Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Taylor Jenkins Reid completely broke my heart with The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and I have a feeling Daisy Jones & The Six will be no exception! If you’re curious to hear my thoughts about Evelyn Hugo, read my review about this book that left me a massive book hangover here.
I have always had a fascination with the ’60s and 70’s ever since I was a little girl and instead of listening to Boys 2 Men and Ace of Base, I was grooving along to bands like The Turtles, The Beach Boys, and the Beatles!
Daisy Jones & The Six is giving me the Penny Lane feels and this book is right up my alley because when Almost Famous debuted I was obsessed with the character of Penny Lane back in high school!
Although this isn’t a story about a groupie following a band, this is about a girl named Daisy who becomes one of the lead bandmembers of an iconic band in the 1970s! Taylor Jenkins Reid clearly has a gift of writing historical fiction after the success of Evelyn Hugo and I have a feeling this book is going to be HUGE! I am pretty certain this is going to be my fave book of 2019! March can’t come quickly enough!!!
3…Again, but Better by Christine Riccio
Christine Riccio is the first booktuber I started following on Booktube when I found that Booktube was an actual thing and I absolutely gobbled up her channel polandbananasBOOKS! I had the pleasure of meeting Christine Riccio in BookNet Fest and I am so excited for her debut novel!
Again, But Better is a new adult contemporary novel set in college and I am SO EXCITED to read this book because there are not enough new adult contemporary novels that are set in college! I love to read novels set in college and the last one I read was Fangirl which disappointed me, unfortunately. Find out why the book Fangirl was a big dud for me and why Rainbow Rowell and I no longer get along here.
Christine Riccio wrote a book that is right up my alley especially since the main character takes a semester abroad to London! My book nerd heart is dying to go to London to go book shopping and of course go on the Harry Potter tour! Since I have been watching Christine Riccio’s channel for a while now I have a feeling there will be a Harry Potter tour involved here hopefully! EEEK!
This is a coming of age novel and I am a sucker for coming of age novels especially when it involves a new country! This book comes out in May and I am planning to start reserving this book in the library! One of my bookolutions for 2019 is to not buy any books for the New Year…unless there is an author signing involved and I don’t own their books!
I have a feeling 2019 is going to be the most amazing year for reading! What are your three magical reads for 2019?! Chat with me in the comments below!
Feel free to participate in this book tag and Happy New Year of Reading and fangirling!
