#SixforSunday: New year, new books

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.

(1) The Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

This is a Chinese 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.

(2) We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

It’s a fantasy inspired by ancient Arabia full of magic and romance. It sounds amazing. Release date: 14 May 2019.

(3) The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala

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.

(4) Blood Heir by Amélie Wen Zhao

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.

(5) The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

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.

(6) House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig

This is inspired by the fairytale, ‘ 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?
