Upcoming releases for Winter and Spring 2019


The new year always brings the promise of newness. New beginnings, new hopes and, of course, new books. There are series continued, debuts to launch and favourite authors and illustrators to revisit in new titles.  Some titles I'm most excited about in the first half of the year include:

• To See the Stars by Jan Andrews (Running the Goat Books & Broadsides) because this will be her last book;

• The Beauty of the Moment by Tanaz Bhathena from Penguin Teen, because I loved A Girl Like That;

• The Triumphant by Lesley Livingston (Razorbill)  as it's the conclusion to her trilogy The Valiant (The Valiant and The Defiant);

• Chicken Girl by Heather T. Smith (Penguin Teen) because she writes gold;

I'm Worried because I know Debbie Ridpath Ohi is the only one who could pull off making a potato look anxious;

You Owe Me a Murder by Eileen Cook (HMH for Young Readers) because she blends mystery, crime and romance into flawless stories;

• You Are Never Alone, a new collaboration between by Elin Kelsey and Soyeon Kim (Owlkids) who brought us the award-winning You Are Stardust;

• In the Key of Nira Ghani by Natasha Deen  (Running Press Kids) because I'm a fan;

• This Place: 150 Years Retold, a collection of stories from Indigenous writers Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, Sonny Assu, Brandon Mitchell, Rachel and Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley, David A. Robertson, Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair, Jen Storm, Richard Van Camp, Katherena Vermettem and Chelsea Vowel, with illustrations by Tara Audibert, Kyle Charles, GMB Chomichuk, Natasha Donovan, Scott B. Henderson, Ryan Howe, Andrew Lodwick and Jen Storm (HighWater Press);

and...and...and...

I could go on and on but I'll let you check out the listing of upcoming releases for the winter and spring of 2019 and see what tickles your reading fancy.🎉 Happy New Year!🎉

    1. OMG, Deborah, how did I miss this? I swear it was in my original posting, because I remember the whales on the cover. So I must have lost it in all my edits. My apologies. It is there now. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Another Kerbel-Del Rizzo collaboration is sure to be a hit, like "Sun Dog."
