This Week's Question

Any books you are looking
forward to for 2019?

(Submitted  by Elizabeth  @ 

My Answer

I did publish a post about interesting January releases, on January 1st. This was also my Happy New Year post. However, the list of books in that post included some that I wouldn't read myself. So this list was really more for my first-time visitors and regular blog readers (although I do like a couple of the books on it, as well; one of them is also featured below).  You can access that post HERE.

As for books I'm looking forward to strictly for myself, well, here they are! You can find out more about each one by clicking on the book image, which will take you either to the Goodreads page, or the Amazon page.

Would you be interested in any of these? Again, since I'm a very eclectic reader, I do have several genres featured here, just as I did in that New Year's post.

  I'm VERY interested in this book 
because this is actually the city
where I was born.

  1. The Gregory Benford book sounds like it might be fantastic. I read his original Timeccape. This sounds like it takes place in a world where the same Time Travel rules apply but that it is not really a sequel. Either way, the plot description of that one sounds fantastic. Imagine going back in time and meeting so many Classic Science Fiction writers. I will almost certainly read that one this year.

    1. Hi, Brian!

      Yes, that book caught my eye RIGHT AWAY!! The plot sounds entirely FASCINATNG!! I would LOVE to be able to meet all of this giants in the SF genre!! OMG!!!!

      I have to check out this book you've mentioned -- "Timescape". I'm adding it to my Goodreads shelves!! (Right along with "Rewrite", of course!!)

      Thanks for the GREAT comment!! <3 :)

  2. Great list. I just added Next Year in Havana its sounds really good.
