Come inside, kick up your heels. Let's get comfortable. We're here to talk about the best thing there is to talk about: books. And not just any books, but the brand-new books of 2019 that are eagerly awaiting your adoration — even if you're not quite done with 2018's.
There are countless amazing books published each month. Here, we'll wade through the new releases and pick the titles we're most excited about. These are the reads you'll bring to book club or send your friends in the mail. The books that will get under your skin. The books that might change the way you think about the world.
Behold, a broad selection of 2019's new releases, from thrillers to romances to literary fiction, from buzzy to under-the-radar. What unites the selections is our sheer enthusiasm for them. We'll begin with January, then continually update this list with books we're excited about throughout the year.
