Hello everyone! #SixforSunday is a weekly meme hosted by A Little But A Lot. This week’s theme is, ‘New year, New books’ and because there are so many books I’m looking forward to in 2019, I’ve decided to focus on the top six debuts I think will be really good this year.
This is a Chinese-inspired fantasy for fans of Game of Thrones. I already know I’m going to love it. Also, I know we’re not to judge books by their covers but this one is gorgeous (the artist is Feifei Ruan and his other artwork is amazing too). Release date: 2 April 2019.
It’s a fantasy inspired by ancient Arabia full of magic and romance. It sounds amazing. Release date: 14 May 2019.
The Tiger at Midnight is inspired by ancient Indian history and Hindu mythology. An excerpt has been released and I’m already hooked, it sounds as if it’s going to be captivating. Release date: 23 April 2019.
This is an Anastasia retelling about self-acceptance and loss. After I read Amélie Zhao’s, ‘Dear Reader Letter’ I knew I had to read Blood Heir. Release date: 4 June 2019.
The cover for this book is also stunning. It’s described as, ‘Eragon meets And I Darken’ and it’s about elemental crows. What else do I need to say? Release date: 9 July 2019.
This is inspired by the fairy tale, ‘ The Twelve Dancing Princesses’ which happens to be one that I adore and one that I don’t see very often so I’m interested to see how this book will turn out. Release date: 6 August 2019.
I think this year will be full of diverse, imaginative debuts. What do you think?
