Engelse 2019 releases waar ik enorm naar uitkijk

Geplaatst op 3 januari 2019 door Emmy in Boeken / 7 Comments

Ik ben geen pre-orderpersoon. Ik doe het zelden, alleen als er een toffe actie aan vast zit, of omdat ik het boek gewoon meteen wil lezen. Want wat het vaak is, is dat ik er toch niet altijd meteen aan toe kom, waarom zou ik dan iets perse op de releasedate in huis willen hebben? Toch zijn er een aantal releases in 2019 waar ik enorm naar uitkijk. Kijk je mee?

Er komen natuurlijk nog heel veel nieuwe boeken bij, maar ik kijk vooral naar de boeken die nu al aangekondigd zijn. Ook zijn dit vooral Engelse boeken, omdat Nederlandse aankondigingen vaak niet zo ver vooruit gaan. Ook de Engelse gaan tot de zomer trouwens, maar na wat speurwerk…


You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

Ik vond het eerste deel zo tof! Holly Black is koningin van de Faeries.

Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.

Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.

Ik heb Nikolai al sinds zijn allereerste verschijning een interessant personage gevonden. Ik kijk er dan ook enorm naar uit om zijn verhaal te mogen lezen!

The final book in the Valiant series takes Fallon and her warrior sisters on an epic journey from the corrupt Roman Republic to the wonder of the ancient world: Alexandria, Egypt.

“You are from a world, Fallon, that values honor over everything else. Rome is not that world.”

In the wake of their victorious fight to win back the Ludus Achillea, Fallon and her gladiatrix sisters have become the toast of the Republic. Only for Fallon, glory turns to ashes when she learns that Cai has been stripped of his Decurion rank and declared infamia, cast down to serve as one of Caesar’s gladiators. All because he chose his love for her over the life of his treacherous father during the ludus uprising.

But treachery in Rome runs far deeper than Fallon ever suspected. While she is fighting for Cai’s freedom, the unthinkable happens and the Republic begins to tear itself apart at the seams. In the chaos that follows, the Achillea gladiatrices lose any protection they might have had once and for all. They’re not the only ones. 

When Fallon discovers that Cleopatra is in grave danger, she and her sister Sorcha rally their war band in an attempt to spirit the Queen of Aegypt out of Rome, embarking on a remarkable journey that will take them to Alexandria—the wonder of the ancient world—and beyond. Far beyond. Along the way, Fallon will have to decide where her heart truly lies, as well as what—and who—she is willing to sacrifice to get


Ik had niet verwacht dat Fallon’s verhaal verder zou gaan, maar toen ik het las was ik er natuurlijk meteen enorm blij mee. LOVE IT.


After battling the impossible, Zélie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha. But the ritual was more powerful than they could’ve imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too. 

Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie must fight to secure Amari’s right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy’s wrath.

With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the stunning sequel to Tomi Adeyemi’s New York Times bestselling debut Children of Blood and Bone, the first title in her Legacy of Orïsha trilogy.

Wie kijkt er nu niet uit naar het vervolg!? Ik wel in ieder geval!

The Prince and the Pauper gets a modern makeover in this adorable, witty, and heartwarming young adult novel set in the Geekerella universe by national bestselling author Ashley Poston.

Imogen Lovelace is an ordinary fangirl on an impossible mission: save her favorite character, Princess Amara, from being killed off from her favorite franchise, Starfield. The problem is, Jessica Stone—the actress who plays Princess Amara—wants nothing more than to leave the intense scrutiny of the fandom behind. If this year’s ExcelsiCon isn’t her last, she’ll consider her career derailed.

When a case of mistaken identity throws look-a-likes Imogen and Jess together, they quickly become enemies. But when the script for the Starfield sequel leaks, and all signs point to Jess, she and Imogen must trade places to find the person responsible. That’s easier said than done when the girls step into each other’s shoes and discover new romantic possibilities, as well as the other side of intense fandom. As these “princesses” race to find the script-leaker, they must rescue themselves from their own expectations, and redefine what it means to live happily ever after

Geekerella gaat door. YES. Komt u maar!

Katya’s power to freeze anything she touches has made her an outcast in her isolated village. And when she loses control of her ability, accidentally killing several villagers, she is banished to the palace of the terrifying Prince Sasha in Kiev. 

At the castle, though, she is surprised to find that Sasha is just like her—with his own strange talent, the ability to summon fire. Instead of punishment, Sasha offers Katya friendship, and the chance to embrace her power rather than fear it. 

But outside the walls of Kiev, Sasha’s enemies have organized their own army of people who can control the very earth. Bent on taking over the entire world, they won’t stop until they’ve destroyed everything. 

Katya and Sasha are desperate to stop the encroaching army, and together their powers are a fearsome weapon. But as their enemies draw nearer, leaving destruction in their wake, will fire and frost be enough to save the world? Or will they lose everything they hold dear?

Ik vond Beyond a darkened shore heel tof, dus ik kijk vanzelfsprekend ook uit naar Jessica Leake’s nieuwe boek. Zal het weer net zo tof worden?

Welcome, welcome to Finale, the third and final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Caraval series!

Welcome, welcome to Caraval…all games must come to an end.

It’s been two months since the last Caraval concluded, two months since the Fates have been freed from an enchanted deck of cards, two months since Tella has seen Legend, and two months since Legend claimed the empire’s throne as his own. Now, Legend is preparing for his official coronation and Tella is determined to stop it. She believes her own mother, who still remains in an enchanted sleep, is the rightful heir to the throne.

Meanwhile, Scarlett has started a game of her own. She’s challenged Julian and her former fiancé, Count Nicolas d’Arcy, to a competition where the winner will receive her hand in marriage. Finaly, Scarlett feels as if she is in complete control over her life and future. She is unaware that her mother’s past has put her in the greatest danger of all.

Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun―with lives, empires, and hearts all at stake. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win…and those who will lose everything.

Ik heb het tweede deel nog niet gelezen, maar deel drie komt er al weer aan. YES. Ik vind het zo tof dat deze serie zo goed ontvangen wordt.

From the internationally bestselling authors of THE ILLUMINAE FILES comes an epic new science fiction adventure.

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic.

Ik ben geen enorme sciencefiction liefhebber, maar met dit gouden duo kan het haast niet verkeerd gaan, toch? Ik kijk er in ieder geval naar uit!


Princess or adventurer.

Duty or freedom.

Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.

If Aurora knows anything, it’s that choices have consequences. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan. 

In disguise as the rebel Roar, she puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion. But the Rage season is at its peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. Yet these storms are different—they churn with darkness, and attack with a will that’s desperate and violent. 

This feels like more than rage. 

It feels like war.

Ik vond Roar echt heel gaaf, dus ik kijk uit naar het vervolg. Ik ben blij dat het dit jaar eindelijk zal verschijnen!

A future chieftain

Fie abides by one rule: look after your own. Her Crow caste of undertakers and mercy-killers takes more abuse than coin, but when they’re called to collect royal dead, she’s hoping they’ll find the payout of a lifetime.

A fugitive prince

When Crown Prince Jasimir turns out to have faked his death, Fie’s ready to cut her losses—and perhaps his throat. But he offers a wager that she can’t refuse: protect him from a ruthless queen, and he’ll protect the Crows when he reigns.

A too-cunning bodyguard

Hawk warrior Tavin has always put Jas’s life before his, magically assuming the prince’s appearance and shadowing his every step. But what happens when Tavin begins to want something to call his own?

Dit boek klinkt zo ontzettend tof en ik ben dan ook heel erg blij dat het boek ook in het Nederlands zal verschijnen. Ik ga lekker wachten op de vertaling!

The epic, magical saga of royalty, romance, and violence continues.

A princess. A soldier. A servant. A demon hunter. A thief. When we last saw them, this unlikely group was heading into the Northern Territory of the kingdom of Pitoria, on the run from the sadistic and power-hungry King Aloysius of Brigant. The Smoke Thieves have discovered that demon smoke is not only an illegal drug used for pleasure, but in fact, when taken by children, demon smoke briefly gives its users super-human strength. Aloysius’ plan is simple and brutal: kill the demons for their smoke, and use that smoke to build an unstoppable army of children to take over Pitoria, Calidor, and then the rest of the world. The Smoke Thieves are the only ones who understand this plan—but can they stop it? Catherine, Aloysius’ daughter, is seen as a traitor from all sides; Tash is heartbroken after the loss of her one friend and sees nothing left for her in the human world; Edyon is wanted for murder; March is carrying the secret of his betrayal of his new love; Ambrose is out for revenge–and all the while, the demons have plans of their own…

Het eerste deel vond ik erg gaaf.. Dus kom maar door met het vervolg!


From #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Cassandra Clare comes the first novel in a brand-new trilogy that stars the Shadowhunters of Edwardian London. Chain of Gold is a Shadowhunters novel.

Welcome to Edwardian London, a time of electric lights and long shadows, the celebration of artistic beauty and the wild pursuit of pleasure, with demons waiting in the dark. For years there has been peace in the Shadowhunter world. James and Lucie Herondale, children of the famous Will and Tessa, have grown up in an idyll with their loving friends and family, listening to stories of good defeating evil and love conquering all. But everything changes when the Blackthorn and Carstairs families come to London…and so does a remorseless and inescapable plague.

James Herondale longs for a great love, and thinks he has found it in the beautiful, mysterious Grace Blackthorn. Cordelia Carstairs is desperate to become a hero, save her family from ruin, and keep her secret love for James hidden. When disaster strikes the Shadowhunters, James, Cordelia and their friends are plunged into a wild adventure which will reveal dark and incredible powers, and the true cruel price of being a hero…and falling in love. 

Tja, je kunt zeggen wat je wilt over Cassandra Clare, maar zo lang ik de boeken verslavend tof vind, zal ik ze lezen. Wel ben ik benieuwd of Clare ooit een andere wereld zal scheppen en of deze het net zo goed zou doen.

The official guide to the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series complete with characters, creatures, new artwork, and more!

Everyone knows the story of the assassin queen. But now, fans of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series will be immersed in her journey like never before. From Adarlan’s dark past to Terrasen’s bright future, this comprehensive guide will bring the people, creatures, settings, magic, gods, and world of Aelin’s epic journey to life in stunning illustrations and descriptive portrayals. Complete with an expansive vocabulary and timeline of events, this is the must-have official companion to the Throne of Glass series.

Als je meer over de Throne of Glass wereld wilt weten, maar ook gewoon meer verhaal wilt, dan scoor je in het najaar dit boek. Ik ga hem in ieder geval wel halen. Het is een companion, maar ook met allemaal nieuwe informatie heb ik gehoord.

Overige boeken in 2019

En natuurlijk staat de illustrated editie van The Goblet of Fire, die ook voor 2019 staat gepland, hoog op mijn lijstje! Evenals: The girl the sea gave back van Adrienne Young (van Sky in the deep) die natuurlijk op mijn wishlist staat en in september zal verschijnen. In september verschijnt ook deel vier van Three dark crowns van Kendare Blake waar ik nu erg benieuwd naar ben.

Tegen het einde van het jaar kunnen we ook genieten van het derde deel van Marissa Meyer’s Alter ego serie. Benieuwd naar! Al moet ik ook in dit geval het tweede deel nog lezen. Rond dezelfde tijd komt The Sky Weaver, het derde Iskari boek uit. Ik ben ook in dit geval ontzettend nieuwsgierig op welke manier Kristen Ciccarelli ons gaat verrassen.

Tot slot denk ik dat iedereen ook gespannen zit te wachten op Sarah J Maas eerste boek voor volwassenen: Crescent city. Ik ook, al vraag ik me ook af hoe ze nog meer adult kan gaan.. Nog meer seks? Dan wordt het toch een halve porno? Maar we zullen zien. Ik vind het wel jammer dat het weer over fae gaat, maar wellicht weet ze me intens te verrassen. Wanneer dit boek precies verschijnt, weet ik helaas nog niet.

Er staan dus weer een tal van boeken op de te verschijnen lijst die ik meteen zou willen kopen. Omdat ik er al lang op wacht, of omdat het boeken zijn van auteurs waar ik dol op ben. Er komen vervolgen aan waar ik op sta te springen, dus ik kan alleen maar zeggen dat 2019 vast wel weer een fantastisch leesjaar gaan worden!

Naar welke boeken kijk jij uit?

  1. Ik kijk zelf vooral uit naar King of Scars, Song of Sorrow en Finale. Maar er zijn nog wel een paar meer boeken waar ik een toch een pre-order voor ga zetten. (Maar ik las dat Fairyloot met special editions, delen 2, gaat komen, dus die ga ik eerst even afwachten)

  2. Yay een nieuwe The Valiant! Nu maar hopen op een Nederlandse vertaling 🙂 Over Orïsha 2 heb ik ook nog niks gelezen wat betreft een vertaling. Hopelijk komt deze er wel! Ik denk dat ik hem wel in het Engels aan zou kunnen, maar ik maak een serie het liefst af in het Nederlands.

    Ik ga binnenkort de Caraval bandwagon joinen, zeer binnenkort zelfs 🙂 Net als de Shadowhunter wereld trouwens.

    Zelf ben ik heel benieuwd naar Slayer van Kiersten White en naar Daisy Jones and The Six van Taylor Jenkins Reid. In juni komt er ook weer een nieuwe fantasy serie van Jennifer L. Armentrout uit en die klink heel vet.

    Ik kijk uit naar de companion novel van Throne of Glass!
    Wist niet eens dat die uit zou komen.
    Verder ga ik natuurlijk voor de boeken van Holly Black en Cassandra Clare.
    Hoewel ik achter loop met de boeken van Cassandra.

  4. Do

    Mooi lijstje! Ik kijk ook uit naar King of Scars en het vervolg op Geekerella! Daarnaast ben ik ook benieuwd naar The Gilded Wolves, Enchantee, On The Come Up & Two Can Keep a Secret!

  5. Petra W

    Leuk dat Cassandra Clare terug gaat naar de historie van de Schaduwjagers. Tot nu toe las ik de Infernal Devices triologie, maar nog niet de delen die zich in de moderne tijd afspelen. Meer Will en Tessa is altijd goed!
