In 2018 I worked hard to get out of my usual reading style and experiment with other styles — I read a graphic novel, I read a lot of books recommended to me by others, I tried any book that sounded unique — but the point is, sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. While I want to continue to diversity my reading, I am so excited to get back to some literary fiction titles this year. Luckily there are some amazing ones coming out, so here is a quick list of some at the top of my list.
The Only Woman in the Room by Marie Benedict
Pub Date: January 8th from Sourcebooks
Marie Benedict is an author I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. I love how she tells the stories of the wives behind some of the famous men in history — such as Albert Einstein and Andrew Carnegie. While I haven’t read either of those, I’m excited to read her latest book this spring!
I’m #2 on the San Diego Library holds list! I’m hoping that by the end of no-borrow January my number will have come up 🙂
Golden Child by Claire Adam
Pub Date: January 29th from SJP for Hogarth
To be quite honest, I don’t know much about this book except that it’s the second title from the new SJP imprint for Hogarth. The first novel was A Place for Us and I loved it so much. As of now this imprint is an auto-buy for me!
I ordered my copy from Book of the Month – If you want to try it out (and get your copy too) feel free to use this referral code for a free first month.
More than Words by Jill Santopolo
Pub Date: February 5th from Putnam
Jill Santopolo is another author I’ve been wanting to read for a while now! You may recognize her name from her debut novel, The Light We Lost, which is high on my 2019 TBR as well. This book looks equally as beautiful and I’m excited to read it!
I’m #2 on the San Diego Library holds listfor this one as well! I’m hoping that by the end of no-borrow January my number will have come up 🙂
The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls by Annisa Gray
Pub Date: February 19th from Berkeley Pub
Compare a book to The Mothers and An American Marriage and I am so in! To boot, this book has a stunning cover and intriguing description. This feels like one I’m going to love!
Berkley Pub has graciously offered to send me a galley of this title. I’m looking forward to reading it and reviewing it for you guys!
