I’ve seen this floating around lately and thought it was about time I did it, too.

Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2019

Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year.
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern.
99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne. After The Hating Game, I just expected so much more from Thorne’s next book.
The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth. This was not at all what I thought it was going to be, but I still really enjoyed reading it.
Favorite New Author
Beth O’Leary. I loved The Flatshare and can’t wait to read more form this author.

Tucker from Just one of the Groomsmen by Cindi Madsen.
Newest Favorite Character
Rob from Call it What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer
Book That Made You Cry
I don’t think any book has so far.
Book That Made You Happy
Huge Deal (21 Wall Street #3) by Lauren Layne. I wanted this story since reading the first book in the series.

I cannot wait to read The Flatshare!
I hope that you love it!
I just love this post! I see so many books I adored. I can’t believe I forgot On Thin Ice for sequel!!! Maybe because I read it first in the series?
Thanks! Yeah, it’s hard to think of something as the best sequel if you didn’t really view it as a sequel. This one was definitely my favorite of the series, though.
I hope she writes more of them.
I enjoyed reading your answers! I was really disappointed by 99 Percent Mine as well, I can’t wait for Erin Morgenstern’s new title and I need to get a copy of Hope And Other Punch Lines ASAP! I love Julie Buxbaum’s books.
I was pretty upset with myself for letting Hope and Other Punch Lines expiring before I got to it! I’ll be putting it on hold again at the library.
I hope you’ll be able to get it back soon!
I still need to read Close to Home. I’m disappointed in myself! Lol. I loved Hope and Other Punchlines. It’s so good. I also loved The Flatshare and I don’t think I would’ve read it if you hadn’t liked it. Especially because most romances are meh for me lately.
You really need to get on the ball with Close to Home lol. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did. I’m going to put another hold on Hope and Other Punchlines, as I do really want to read it. And I’m so glad you enjoyed The Flatshare. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
Great post! I was also disappointed by 99 Percent mine.
Thank you! Hopefully Thorne’s next book will be much better for both of us!
I hope so! I guess I’ll just have to reread The Hating Game in the meantime!
Love your answers! I totally agree with you on 99 Percent Mine! I also loved Rob from Call It What You Want! He was amazing! I’m so looking forward to The Starless Sea. The Cover looks pretty!
Thanks! I love the cover for The Starless Sea, too!
