My Most-Anticipated New Releases, July-December 2019

I've read all but one of the books I put on my list of most-anticipated releases for the first half of this year, so I'm ready to make my list for the second half for today's Top Ten Tuesday topic. 

Clause and Effect

by Kaitlyn Dunnett
Publication date: 6/25/19
[Add this book on Goodreads.]
I loved the first book in this series, and I'm thrilled that the publisher was willing to send me an ARC. The spine of the copy they sent me says the book is released in July, so even though the official release date is June 25th, I'm including it here. 

Let's Fake a Deal 

by Sherry Harris
Publication date: 7/30/19
I started this cozy series in the middle, but haven't had any trouble keeping up with it. Kensington also sent me an ARC of this one, and I'm excited to check in on Sarah and my other favorite characters.  


by Hallie Lord
Publication date: 8/6/19
Hallie Lord is a Catholic author and radio personality, and she is good friends with one of my favorite Catholic authors, Jennifer Fulwiler. This book explores the concept of home from a Christian perspective, and I'm curious to see what her writing is like. 

Wonton Terror 

by Vivien Chien
Publication date: 8/27/19
Another favorite cozy series is getting a new installment at the end of the summer. This is the fourth book in the Noodle Shop Mysteries series. 

How to Raise a Reader

by Pamela Paul and Maria Russo
Publication date: 9/3/19
I have been making it a point to read every book on this subject, so I requested this from NetGalley. I hope it offers something new to this genre. 


by Deborah Wiles
Publication date: 9/3/19
I was starting to wonder whether this conclusion to the Sixties Trilogy was ever going to be written. I loved the first two books, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the series to the end.

Word to the Wise

by Jenn McKinlay 
Publication date:  9/3/19
When my mom asks me what I want for my birthday (in November), I will be mentioning this book. It's become kind of a tradition that she gets me a book from this series at the end of each year, and I usually read it near the beginning of the new year. I'm always excited to read more about the happenings at the Briar Creek Public Library. 

The Vanderbeekers to the Rescue

by Karina Yan Glaser 
Publication date: 9/17/19
I'm glad to see this series continue. I don't know much about this one, but I have enjoyed the previous titles and plan to read the new one as soon as I can!

Beverly, Right Here 

by Kate DiCamillo
Publication date: 9/24/19
[Add this book on Goodreads.]
I didn't care for Raymie Nightingale, but I loved Louisiana's Way Home, and I'm hoping maybe this final book in the trilogy will be the best of the three. Candlewick generously sent me an ARC, which I'm saving to read near the end of the summer.   

Karen's Witch

by Ann M. Martin and Katy Farina
Publication date: 12/26/19
Graphic novel adaptations of Baby-sitters Club books are a guilty pleasure for me. I loved this book when I was six, and I'm excited to see how the artist portrays each of the characters. 


  1. I love all your cozy choices. McKinlay is a favorite of mine and I want to read more of the series from Chen. I've really enjoyed what I've read. I love Kate DiCamillo and want to read the Vanderbeeker books.

  2. You might want to check on Hallie Lord's book. It seems to have been pulled, but she isn't saying anything about it. Just look at the Amazon listing.
