Most Anticipated Books of 2019

I'm pretty sure I began this post a Top 5 Wednesday post in 2018, but it just never went up. I'm still going to keep this to five books, seeing as these are one and truely at the top of my most anticipated list for this year.

1. The Priory of the Orange Tree
Samantha Shannon


I remember when Samantha first tweeted about the seed that would then become this monster of a book. I was intrigued, excited and had just finished The Mime Order - I was hooked to her writing.
Now, its less than two months away from release and I am CRAVING this book, so bad. 

2. The Poison Song (The Winnowing Flame Trilogy #3)
Jen Williams


I feel like I am always going to tie my University experience to this series. The first book coming out when I was in first year, book two in my second and now the third and final book will be out as I conclude my final year. It's going to be a little bittersweet.
3. Darkdawn (Nevernight #3)
Jay Kristoff


We all know how Godsgrave killed me, right? I cried... in my Nan's front room because I was underprepared for the ending. So if my dissertation isn't what kills me off, maybe this will be it?

4. Bloodwitch (The Witchlands #3)
Susan Dennard


Another one where I feel like I've been waiting forever, but also not for very long. I'm just excited to be getting back to the world of the Witchlands.

5. Other Words of Smoke
Sarah Maria Griffin


I read the sample for this very soon after getting back from YALC. I was instantly obsessed with the prose and what feels like a really promising story. Besides, isn't the UK cover just utterly LUSH?!
