Most Anticipated Releases of 2019!

Today's Top 5 Wednesday prompt was Top 5 Most Anticipated Releases of 2019, but since I can't pick just five and I was planning on doing a longer post anyway, I decided to just go ahead and combine the two posts! I'm not just limiting this to books, but also including movies and TV shows that are coming out in 2019 that I'm super excited for! These lists are pretty long, so let's go ahead and jump straight in :)

I have fourteen books on this list and I'm so excited to talk about all of them. After the top one, they're not really in any order but I'm pretty excited for all of them. 

My top anticipated release of 2019 is Crescent City by Sarah J. Maas. This is her newest adult book that is kicking off a new series and I'm so excited! It's about supernatural and magical creatures mixed with amazing characters, war, and sexy men. 

Then I'm excited for The World of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, which is kind of an encyclopedia and compendium for my favorite series. We'll get to see what happens in the ten years after the end of Kingdom of Ash and I'm beyond excited! I just really want to see what has been going on with the characters that made it out of the final book. 

I'm particularly keen on Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout that's coming out next year. It's a continuation/sequel to The Dark Elements trilogy, which is one of my favorite storylines from Jennifer. It was also one of the first series I first read when I started getting back into reading and I'm soooo excited to see more of these characters!

Then two of my favorite co-authors are coming out with another book series with the first book releasing in March: Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff. I'm so excited to read this book and I can't wait to have it in my hands in just a few months. Their other series (Illuminae Files) is one of my favorite series and it just ended this past year, so I'm very excited for more from these authors. 

One of my favorite books of 2018 was Furyborn by Claire Legrand and I'm beyond excited for the sequel: Kingsbane. Just everything about the end of the first book and the characters makes me so excited to read Kingsbane! Hopefully I'll be able to survive the wait until May! 

Then I'm excited for The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman. I follow Christine on Twitter and all of her tweets about her writing experience and her book have gotten me so excited about its release! I cannot wait to read it (and hopefully love it). 

I'm also really looking forward to The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon, which is her newest standalone fantasy about DRAGONS. I love dragons (my current WIP is about dragons) and I've heard nothing but amazing things about this book from people who have gotten early copies. 

Next, I'm pretty interested in Again, But Better by Christine Riccio. I've been following Christine on YouTube for so long and I credit her (among others) for getting me back into reading. Following her journey writing this book has been so fun and I'm beyond excited to read a book from her. 

The final book in the Caraval trilogy, Finale, is also coming in 2019. The ending of book 2 absolutely shook me and I'm so interested in seeing what happens next. Plus, the covers are absolutely gorgeous.

Another book I'm excited for is Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan. This is a spooky, fantastical book that I've heard nothing but amazing things about. I follow the author on Twitter and she's hilarious and I cannot wait to read her book. 

Then, I'm excited for The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi. I actually just got the email that I was accepted into the street team for this book so be sure to stay tuned for a lot more talk of this upcoming release! Anyway, I'm so excited for this book. It's set in Paris and has been likened to Six of Crows and I cannot wait! I wish I had it in my hands right now. 

One of my favorite books in 2018 was Seafire by Natalie C. Parker. It's an amazing pirate fantasy book and I read it so quickly and just fell in love with the story. I already cannot wait to reread it and to read the sequel next year! 

Another of my favorites of the year was Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young and she annoucned she was writing a companion novel set ten years after Sky and I'm so excited! I loved this book and binged it so quickly and I cannot wait to see more of these characters.

The last book I'm looking forward to might actually be more than one, but I'm excited for the next installments in the Veil Diaries series. The seventh book should be coming out soon and there may be an eighth also releasing in 2019. I still have to catch up on the series, though, but I'll hopefully be able to do that soon! 

I also am super excited for some TV and movie releases. I have five upcoming movies and two upcoming TV seasons that I'm excited for. Let's just go ahead and talk about them since I'm super excited about these!

The first movie I'm beyond excited about is Spiderman: Far From Home. The first Spiderman with Tom Holland is my favorite movie. It's full of action but also full of comedy and cuteness, something that the Avengers movies don't have as much of. Either way, I'm just so freaking excited for more of Tom Holland's Spiderman. 

The next movie I'm looking forward to it Avengers: Endgame. How can I not be excited (and a little scared) for this after the ending that was Avengers: Infinity War? I just need this movie, like, yesterday. I cannot wait to see this and hopefully see a happy ending!

I'm also excited to see the next Star Wars movie and see how this trilogy wraps up. Star Wars is a series that is pretty close to me and, while I haven't been able to say the newest ones compare to the old ones, I am invested in the story and super excited to see what happens next. 

At number four, I'm super excited that they're making Zombieland 2. The first is one of my favorite movies and I just find it hilarious, so I cannot wait to see what they do with the second movie. I just need this comedic action in my life!

Lastly, I'm excited for the third Kingsman movie. The first one was phenomenal, the second one was amazing, and I cannot wait to see where the characters go in the last one. I just need me some Eggsy in my life.
The first TV season I'm excited for is the sixth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I love this show and binged it so fast last year and I was so devstated when it was cancelled. But then it was renewed by NBC and I cannot wait to be reunited with these characters and this story! Plus, the ending of season five just left me needing to know what happens next!

The second TV season I'm excited for is season 3 of Stranger Things. I watched this show with one of my friends the first time around and I'm super excited to see what will come next. I think that this show is definitely one I didn't see myself loving before I started watching it but now I'm hooked. 

So, those were my most anticipated releases of 2019. There are countless others I'm looking forward to but I figured I'd leave this post with my top most anticipated releases. Hopefully 2019 will be an amazing year and I can't wait to dive into it!
