Serious Moonlight and Maybe This Time are two I definitely am excited for. Fake It Till You Break it looks cute too !
Me too!! There are so many excellent sounding contemporaries coming out this year, it’s great!
All these covers are so beautiful! I already had Serious Moonlight, King of Scars and Rosa Santos on my radar, but omg how cute does Truly Madly Royally look!!
The cover gods have been benevolent in 2019! Lol! Doesn’t it look super cute!! I’m dying to read Rosa Santos and Serious Moonlight especially.
OMG! So, so many amazing authors are releasing this year. I am so excited for many of them, mostly The Risk. I cannot wait to read that one!
I know, isn’t it amazing!! I don’t know how I’ll fit them all in but I’ll try haha. I am super excited for The Risk too, can’t resist that series 🙂

Not surprised to see a Megan Morrison book on your list! :p
Aurora Rising is on my list too, and I’ll definitely be reading Serious Moonlight and Maybe This Time. One day I’ll make it to King of Scars … about to start Siege and Storm soon!
Hahaha I can’t help myself. Nice, there are so many good contemporaries coming out this year, I can’t wait. Ohhh awesome, I really liked Siege and Storm!
I have been waiting so long for king of scars I can’t even wait! Serious Moonlight is on my most anticipated list too!! I love Jenn Bennett! I am going to check out your 2019 shelf bc I only have like 80? Ish on mine and clearly I need to see what else is coming out that I may be missing out on! (Bc my TBR just needs to get longer of course).
I kind of wish I read something Grisha more recently but I’ll get my bearings I’m sure and love King of Scars haha! Yessss Jenn Bennett is the best! I think SM is set in Seattle too. Hahah who doesn’t love an unwieldy, growing TBR?!
