Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week's topic is: Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2019

  1. Finale is a must. It's a series ender, so I will probably put it off for a good amount of time. I also cannot wait to see what Kristoff and Kaufman cooked up for us. The premise sounds so good.

  2. Wow, The Haunted sounds amazing.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  3. Some new ones for me. Stepsister looks awesome. I am always down for Jennifer l armentrout. Great list. I am starting the wicked king today. Hope to love it as I did the first.

  4. I'm adding Septsister and The Evil Queen to my never-ending list of retellings that I must read. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy readings!;)
