Six for Sunday: New Year New Books


I am raging that I am only allowed six books this week. In the final Six for Sunday of 2019, Steph has us looking at books for the new year. Specifically, I’m listing next year’s releases that I cannot wait to get my hands on. I can’t narrow this down to just six, so I’m listing six YA books and six MG books I am excited for, and I know Steph won’t mind me cheating because she has form for using this loophole.

Young Adult

1. Hold Back the Tide by Melinda Salisbury. Queen Mel is releasing a new book, of course I’m excited for it. Why isn’t it time yet?

2. The Love Hypothesis by Laura Steven. I adore everything Laura has written so far. No author makes me laugh like Laura. Can. Not. Wait.

3. Harley in the Sky by Akemi Dawn Bowman. If you know me at all, you will know I’m trash for Akemi’s books. A new Akemi book is cause for celebration.

4. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins. It’s Mags’s Hunger Games. I have no words. I loved the original trilogy and I am all here for this.

5. Grief Angels by David Owen. I love David’s writing and the sampler of this blew me away. I need more and I need it right now.

6. #SecretTitle by Will Hill. Will’s next book might not have a title yet, but I have read a sample chapter and I am all here for the rest of this book.

Middle Grade

1. The Strangeworlds Travel Agency by L. D. Lapinski. I have followed Lucy on Twitter forever and I can’t wait for her debut novel to arrive in the world.

2. Dragon Mountain by Katie and Kevin Tsang. S and I love the Sam Wu books and we are super thrilled for more books from these authors.

3. The Boy Who Fooled the World by Lisa Thompson. Lisa is swift becoming a favourite author for S and I read together, and we are looking forward to this.

4. Hollowpox by Jessica Townsend. The Nevermoor series is one of my favourite middle grade series, so more in this world can only be a good thing.

5. Mermaids by Laura Kirkpatrick. This isn’t it’s actual name, but Laura’s middle grade is as brilliant as her YA and I am all here for more from the sassy mermaids sequel. .

6. A Sprinkle of Sorcery by Michelle Harrison. I did not know that there was going to be A Pinch of Magic sequel, and I am thrilled this is happening. I need it now.

What books are you looking forward to in 2020?

  1. After how much I loved Sorrow, I’ll very likely end up reading Hold Back the Tide- also, that first line has me SO intrigued. Very excited for both of Laura’s (your prediction for the 2nd Mermaids title was right by the way!!), and I’ll be picking up all the ones on the MG list. I actually thought Dragon Mountain wasn’t out till 2021 so I’m very excited it’s next year 😊
