Anticipated Releases: February 2019


Hello lovelies! How are you? I hope you had a great weekend! It’s finally February and we all know a new months means new book releases to get excited about, and these are the ones I’m anticipating the most!


A Danger to Herself and Others by Alyssa B. Sheinmel – February 5th

An unlikable and unreliable female protagonist? Sign me up. I don’t need to know anything else. Just give me all the unlikable girls, please and thank you.

Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers – February 5th

Ok, calling this book an anticipated releases might be a bid bold considering I haven’t even started the first trilogy yet. But I’m anticipating the moment in time when I have read it and can finally get my hands on this shiny, new book about assassin nuns at French court.


On the Come Up by Angie Thomas – February 7th

I really enjoyed The Hate U Give and I love hip hop, so I’m really excited about Angie Thomas’s new release about a girl trying to make it as a rapper.

Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner – February 26th

I keep thinking that I love Jeff Zentner’s books, then awkwardly remembering I’ve only read their synopses. So I love this book, but I haven’t read it yet, but I’m excited too. Oh, and it’s a contemporary about friendship, creature features and growing up. In case you wanted to actually hear about the actual book.


The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – February 26th

I’ve been on the fence about this once cause I’m getting kind of wary with hyped fantasy releases, but the combination of that cover, dragons and f/f fantasy is too much for me to resist.

The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie – February 26th

I read the blurb for this book like 3 times and I still have no idea what it’s about, but there’s definitley a raven god which sounds cool and I love Ann Leckie’s writing. You guys are so welcome for this thoughtful and informative… information. 


What February releases are you excited for? Is there an author you’re sure you’ll love, but whose books you haven’t actually read yet? Do you get excited about new books in series you haven’t even started? Please yes, and make me feel less weird! xxx

  1. I have no idea what The Raven Tower is about either but “Ann Leckie”, “gods” and “trans characters” was enough for me and I can’t wait. I’m on the fence about Priory too – on one hand, it has the potential to be awesome, but… it’s so long. It’s the kind of book I add to my TBR and then never pick up because it’s too intimidating. I think it would end up being a Queens of Innis Lear situation – “I love this, but when will it end?”

    This month I’m also anticipating We Set the Dark on Fire (just because it’s f/f, I have no idea what it’s about) and The Haunting of Tram Car 015 (if it’s as atmospheric as A Dead Djinn In Cairo, which is in the same universe, it will be one of the best novellas I’ve ever read).

    1. Right? I’m sure it will be weird and wonderful. I honestly love long books, as long as they grab my attention from the start and don’t take 200 pages to get going. I still had the same thoughts about Queens of Innis Lear though, but that was more to do with the pacing which felt so slow to me.

      I have We Set the Dark on Fire on my “maybe tbr” cause it’s f/f, but the plot really doesn’t sound like my thing. The Haunting of Tram Car 015 totally does though – I’ll check that one out!

  2. I’d love to read more of Terry Pratchett, although the only things I’ve read by him so far are The Carpet People and Good Omens. Out of this list, I’d say I’m most excited for On The Come Up and The Priory of the Orange Tree. Hopefully you’ll be able to get your hands on these exciting books!

  3. I read a danger to herself and others last month. I did really enjoy it but did think it was pretty problematic in its representation of mental illness but then what’s new there, right? Sigh.

  4. On the Come Up is definitely one I’m interested in reading because THUG was one of my favourites from last year and I thought it was amazing! It probably means I have high expectations of On the Come Up and I hope Angie Thomas doesn’t suffer from ‘second book syndrome’ because I think it would be unfair as she’s just a talented writer that all books should be judged on their own merit!

    1. I have high expectations too and that always makes me a little nervous. My favorite books my my favorite authors are often the first ones I read by them and I think my expectations getting our of hand have something to do with that. I definitley think books should be judged on their own merit though and I’m very excited to read One the Come Up! I hope we’ll both love it as much as (or even more than) THUG 😊

  5. I’m really looking forward to The Rosie result by Graeme Simsion. There are several of the books that you’ve listed that I’ve heard a lot of positive things about, but I’m kind of on the fence about. Mainly because I haven’t read anything by the authors before or because I’m not sure if it would something that I will enjoy. Not going to find it out though unless I read them! =)

    1. I really enjoyed The Rosie Project, but I haven’t read the sequel yet. I hope the third book lives up to your expectations 😊 It can be hard to know which new authors to try, but you never know – you might find a new favorite!
