Most Anticipated Fall & Winter Books

You may recall at the beginning of the year I did a post on 50 new releases I’m looking forward to reading in 2019! Since that post I have not only read a good amount of those books, but I have also discovered SO many more great books that I want to make sure you have on your radar! I got a few requests to do a follow up post including my most anticipated books that are being released this fall and winter! Whether you’re looking to cuddle up with a psychological thriller, want a feel good rom-com, or are looking to dive into an informative non-fiction book I have got ya covered with nearly 60 books that are being published (or were recently published!) in the next six months!

P.S. all of the publishing dates are subject to change, but these are the dates provided when I was writing this post! All books are available for pre-order as a physical book or e-book. Happy reading! xx

  13. I have been meaning to grab some new books to read, but have yet to find one I want to read. I love that you made such a comprehensive list and sorted it as well! Makes it so much easier to find one, without all the mindless scrolling on amazon.
