Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Treats I’m Looking Forward To In 2019

Top Ten Tuesday new

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

This week’s topic is a Freebie where we can make up our own topic, or use a previous TTT topic we may have missed.  OK, so when I said ‘treats’, you know I meant ‘books’, didn’t you?  After all, what better treats are there than new books?  It’s the time of year when publishers are unveiling the shiny new books they plan to release in 2019.  Yes, I know I really should resist looking at those catalogues when I have an already huge TBR pile…but I did anyway and here’s what I found (and lots more besides, I’ll be honest).

Treats from: Allison & Busby 

The Phoenix of Florence by Philip Kazan

I loved The Black Earth and have his previous books, Appetite and The Painter of Souls, in my TBR pile.  Thanks to the publisher for my proof copy.

The Mathematical Bridge (Nighthawk #2) by Jim Kelly

I really enjoyed the first in Jim Kelly’s ‘Nighthawk’ series, The Great Darkness.

Treats from: Bloomsbury  

The Road to Grantchester by James Runcie

I’ve not read any of the previous books or watched the TV series but this prequel seems a great place to start. Thanks to the publisher for approving my request on NetGalley.

Beyond the Thirty-Nine Steps by Ursula Buchan

A new biography of John Buchan – and one written by his granddaughter?  As a diehard Buchan fan, how can I resist?

Treats from: Bonnier Zaffre   

Nemesis (Tom Wilde #3) by Rory Clements

As a fan of the author’s John Shakespeare series who also loved Corpus and Nucleus, the previous two books in his Tom Wilde series, I can’t wait to read this one.  Thanks to the publisher for approving my request on NetGalley.

Treats from: Corvus 

The Serpent’s Mark by S. W. Perry

I thought S. W. Perry’s first historical mystery, The Angel’s Mark, was terrific so I’m thrilled there’s a second book due next year.

Treats from: Head of Zeus   

The Canary Keeper by Clare Carson

Confession time: I’ve had a copy of The Dark Isle in my TBR pile for ages but now I’m excited to see Clare is venturing into historical fiction.

Brigantia (Vindolanda #3) by Adrian Goldsworthy

I loved Vindolanda and I have its follow-up, The Encircling Sea, in my TBR pile.  Maybe I can make the publication of the third in the series the motivation I need to read it.

Treats from: No Exit  

The Conviction of Cora Burns by Carolyn Kirby

I just loved the sound of this when it was first brought to my attention.  Thanks to the publisher for my proof copy.

Treats from: Quercus  

Blackberry & Wild Rose by Sonia Velton

I mean, if the book description wasn’t enough, how can you resist a book with a cover this gorgeous?  Thanks to the publisher for approving my request on NetGalley.

What treats from publishers are you looking forward to in 2019?
