Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee (releasing January 15th)
This book is from Rick Riordan Presents, with each book inspired by mythology and written by authors from those cultures. This one has fox spirits and sounds like a fun adventure.
The Girl with the Whispering Shadow (Book 2 of The Crowns of Croswald) by D.E. Night (releasing January 23rd) I read the first book in March of last year and instantly fell in love with it. It had all the elements I so enjoy, an enchanting magical world reminiscent of Harry Potter, Cinderella and a smidge of Alice and Wonderland. Can't wait to read this next book.
A Sprinkle of Spirits by Anna Meriano
(releasing February 5th)
This is a sequel to A Dash of Trouble which I read and really enjoyed. It has baking, Bruja magic, and lovely sister relationships.
The Bridge Home by Padma Venkatraman (releasing February 5th) I'll admit the cover and that the story is set in India really drew me to this book. I love to read stories set in different places than my own and again this is written by an own voices author.
The Lost Girl by Anne Ursu (releasing February 12th)
This one involves twin girls who are separated for the first time into different classrooms for fifth grade.
Over the Moon by Natalie Lloyd (releasing March 26th) Natalie Lloyd's books are a must read for me. I so loved A Snicker of Magic, The Key to Extraordinary and The Problim Children. Can't wait to read this next one about a mining town called Coal Top and the young girl who is going to train flying horses.
The next four books aren't out until later in the year, so I'll highlight more about them at a later date.
And not to be forgotten are the three YA books on my TBR for 2019:
What's on your list for 2019?? Feel free to comment or suggest a book that I shouldn't miss out on.
