Dear Readers,

Hello again! How are you all? Hope you’re good and enjoying 2019 so far – gosh, its already the 10th of January! So here I am with my first Thursday post! It’s a little bit strange keeping to a posting schedule, but I’m actually kind of enjoying it – let’s hope it keeps this way!

So, for this Thursday post I’m going to be doing 7 YA books on my TBR list for 2019. *I see you sighing there – I promise this will be the last ‘2019’ type post, just hang in there! ๐Ÿ˜‚* I absolutely love to read in my free time, it’s so liberating to be put in someone else’s shoes for a while & explore their world (I have a big imagination so I love to be taken on bookish adventures, as such ๐Ÿ’ซ ). I think it also helps with your empathy too, as you’re able to place yourself in someone else’s place more easily, especially if you’ve read a book with a protagonist going through the same/ similar things. Books really do help with learning about other people’s emotions.

I hope you enjoy, and sorry for the lack of cover images, I’m not sure where I can & can’t take cover images from (it’s confusing!), and I don’t want to be sued, so yeah! No images…

+ On the Come Up by Angie Thomas

Yessss! That’s right, I cannot wait for Angie’s second book to come out, after reading her OUTSTANDING debut novel The Hate U Give (THUG). I’m sure her second book will be just as amazing, and hopefully they’ll be many more to come! ๐Ÿ’™

+ The Map From Here to There by Emery Lord

Okayyyy, so I have been an Emery Lord fan for AGES now, and of course I can’t wait to read her fifth book (that’s a lot of books now)! The expected publication of this book is October 2019, so I’ve got a long time to wait to finally read this book, but on the plus side, I believe it’s the sequel to The Start of Me and You (one of her amazing books โšก๏ธ) so yay, more adventures for Paige!

+ The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

I recently read the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series, and oh my goshhhh! It was amazing! *sighs* – I wish I was Lara Jean ๐Ÿ˜‚. Anyway, I loved the style that Jenny wrote in, so of course I was delighted to see that she’s written other books. Hopefully I’ll be able to read this series soon!

+ Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus

I received ‘One of Us is Lying’ for Christmas from my parents, and read it within a couple of days! I love mystery/ thriller books, so it was right up my street, and although I don’t rate it as much as I thought I would, I want to read Karen’s next book! ๐ŸŒŸ ‘Two Can Keep a Secret’ sounds like a great book, seriously read the synopsis on Goodreads NOW! ๐Ÿ˜‚

+ That’s Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger

I haven’t actually read a book by Kody Keplinger before, however I saw this in Waterstones (a bookshop we have in the UK – I don’t know if you have it in the US/ Australia/ etc) and was like I WANT TO READ THAT BOOK! ๐Ÿ˜‚ So yeah, it’s been on my TBR for a few weeks & I would like to try and read it soon!

+ Call it What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer

I really enjoyed reading Brigid’s novel ‘More Than We Can Tell’, so was pleased to discover that she’s written another book that seems to be my kind of genre (I sound really critical using the word ‘pleased’…. oops! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ). My favourite books tend to be either thriller or contemporary novels so yeah… (I’m running out of things to say here – can you tell?)

+ The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews

Oh my goshhhh! โค๏ธ I absolutely cannot WAIT to read this book, after Drews’ debut novel, A Thousand Perfect Notes was absolutely incredible (and also heartbreaking at times)! I predict another amazing book that will probably make me cry a lot, so make sure you grab your tissue box when you settle down in April to read this! ๐ŸŽ‰

So that’s that! 7 books that I literally cannot wait to read in 2019 (there’s probably more, but I can’t think of any at this precise moment! Plus, I don’t want to keep you here all day! ๐Ÿ˜‚)

What books do you want to read this year? Any of the same books as me? Have you read any of the published ones yet – what are they like? Any other book recommendations?

    1. Hi Ava! ๐Ÿ’™ Thank you! Yes, I would still love to collab! I’m assuming that we’d still do the idea you had previously, but it’s up to you! I’ve got some exams next week so I think it’d be good to work on it more towards the end of January, what suits you? Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜Š Autumn x

    1. Thank you very much Isabel! โค๏ธYes, you definitely should! ๐Ÿ˜‚ And oh my gosh, thank you so much for telling me, I usually give my posts a once over, but clearly not the title! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Sorry & tysm! I do have a Goodreads account, however it’s mainly for my family/ friends so I would prefer to not give it away & expose their identities, if that makes sense! Sorry (maybe I should create one for the purposes of my blog? ๐Ÿ˜Š). Thank you for the lovely comment, Autumn x

    1. I know! Hopefully itโ€™ll be a great book! ๐Ÿ’œ I didnโ€™t know she has a blog – thanks for telling me Rhi! (Iโ€™m going to check it out now! ๐Ÿ˜Š) Ooh, I havenโ€™t heard of that book, Iโ€™m definitely going to look into it now! Thanks for the lovely comment, Autumn x


      1. I had a look, and I definitely get what you mean – her artwork is goals for me! โค๏ธ (but I’ll definitely fail at getting there! ๐Ÿ˜‚) Thanks for telling me about it! Autumn x

    1. No worries Esmeralda! Glad I have given you some ideas, that was my intention! ๐ŸŒŸ Let me know if you canโ€™t wait to read any of the books! Autumn x


    1. I know, I’m hoping (and pretty sure) it’ll be just as good as THUG! ๐Ÿ’ž I know that I just love Angie Thomas’ writing style! Thank you Arunima (you have such a pretty name)! โœจ Autumn x

    1. I know!!! I’m super excited for it too, I’ve read the blurb & it just sounds soooo GOOD! โค๏ธ Hope you enjoy it when it comes out (is it already out?!)! Autumn x


    1. Haha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I get what you mean, mine seems to grow like everyday! I bet your library has a big waiting list for it (number 114 -wowwww, that’s a lot of people wanting to read the same book…) – it’ll be definitely worth the wait though, tbh! ๐Ÿ’— Thank you Isa! Autumn x

  3. Ooooo! โœจ (I swear I always say that at the start of my comments on peopleโ€™s posts ๐Ÿ˜‚) I can totally agree with you on why you read ๐Ÿ˜Š I have a vivid imagination too, and I love where reading takes me, an emotion rollercoaster, you laugh out love out loud, you cry and you smile. Itโ€™s also a great escape, into someone elseโ€™s life ๐Ÿ˜‰ Checked out some of these books online and they look really good! We should so buddy read ๐ŸŒŸ
    I think my 2019 YA books I want to read are The Exact Opposite Of Okay, Midnight Sun and Maze Runner book 3. Great post Autumn ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Iโ€™m so glad you read for the same reasons as me Amber! ๐ŸŒŸ Itโ€™s great to find someone like that, especially as sometimes people can judge you for having a vivid imagination ๐Ÿ’ž. Iโ€™m glad you think that some of them look really good (Iโ€™m crossing my fingers they will be ๐Ÿ˜‚), and buddy reading would be really cool! I nearly bought The Exact Opposite of Okay last year, but then I didnโ€™t buy it for some reason…. (I think we were in a rush ๐Ÿ˜‚)! But Iโ€™d love to actually read the book! Thank you Amber for the LOVELY COMMENT!! Autumn x

      1. Yes, itโ€™s great to find someone else with a vivid imagination โœจ Sometimes I find it so disappointing when you watch the film of the book and the characters arenโ€™t how you saw them in the book… itโ€™s just weird. Yes, they think you dream and imagine things too much, but jeez, imagination can be a lot better than real life at some points, and a great get-away ๐Ÿ˜Š I like to think theyโ€™re just jealous ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yep! Iโ€™ll definitely be writing a review (no spoilers) so you can see if itโ€™s what you thought it would be! Though my long TBR list is kind of too big to fit on paper ๐Ÿ˜† No worries Autumn! ๐Ÿ’› Thank you for the lovely post ๐ŸŒธ

  4. Hi! I’ve read ‘On the Come up,’ and ‘The Summer I turned Pretty’ And I promise you they’re both really good. I love your blog and I’m new here so I was wondering if you could read my posts and give some feedback on what I could do to make it better and stuff like that. Thank you! x
