Spring is a time of fresh starts and fresh new books to read. This is a list of the amazing spring books releases I can’t wait to read. If it’s not obvious, I adore new books. There’s something about reading a book before everyone else has a chance. A certain pride in being the first to recommend a book to someone.
Every week, I update my calendar and pre-order the books I plan on reading right away. You can find all this information in my weekly new release posts. It’s a painstaking and meticulous process, but it’s necessary. Sometimes I wait for months for a book to be released. Other times I’m fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy.
This list is jam-packed with my most anticipated spring book releases. These are the books I absolutely can’t wait for, the ones that are highlighted on my calendars. These are books I pre-ordered weeks, if not months ago.
Seriously, I can’t tell you how eager I am to read The Mister by E. L. James (50 Shades of Grey), The Bride Test by Helen Hoang (The Kiss Quotient) and so many others. As a responsible adult and professional book blogger, I’m valiantly fighting the urge to pout until these books are in my greedy little hands. I’ll probably have to fight the urge to call in sick to work when they show up on my Kindle (it’s a mental health day, if you ask me).
How do Books End up on This List?
A Catchy Cover: There are a handful of books I intended to include on this list but they don’t have covers yet. Covers can make or break a book for me and I don’t pre-order anything without seeing what it looks like first. I hope I’ll be able to add those books to the list in the near future
Books from authors/ publishers I trust: If I’m going to take a chance and spend my money on something without waiting for reviews I want to be reasonably sure it’s going to live up to my expectations.
An intriguing blurb: I’m a loyal reader, but that loyalty has limits. I don’t read anything just because of the author or the cover, I have to care about the story.
So without further ado here are the Spring 2019 books I am most looking forward to: This list is in no particular order
In 2018 Helen Hoang’s debut novel The Kiss Quotient took the book world by storm. Nominated as Goodreads Choice Awards as Best Debut Author and winning Best Romance Novel of 2018. This book has big expectations to live up to. I can not wait to read this one.
Neurodivergent | Contemporary Romance
Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, he feels irritation when people move his things or contentment when ledgers balance down to the penny, but not big, important emotions—like grief. And love. He thinks he’s defective. His family knows better—that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly avoids relationships, his mother takes matters into her own hands and returns to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride. Read More
I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this one and after meeting the characters in Game Changer even that was too long of a wait. When you read as many romance books as I do, it’s not often something truly unique comes around. This book was very unique. The story spanned nearly a decade and focused on the relationship vs. the characters, I loved it.
MM | Enemies to Lovers | Sports Romance
Nothing interferes with Shane Hollander’s game—definitely not the sexy rival he loves to hate.
Pro hockey star Shane Hollander isn’t just crazy talented, he’s got a spotless reputation. Hockey is his life. Now that he’s captain of the Montreal Voyageurs, he won’t let anything jeopardize that, especially the sexy Russian whose hard body keeps him awake at night.
Boston Bears captain Ilya Rozanov is everything Shane’s not. Read More
Let’s face it, 50 Shades is the series everyone has read or lies about reading for whatever reading. You’d be hard pressed to find another book that sparked so many heated discussion and sold so many copies in recent times. I can’t wait to for my chance to book date Maxim.
London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face. Read More
I’ll be honest, short of Tillie Cole’s Hades Hangman series, I’m not usually a fan bikers or bad boys in general. But, I adore the secret identity trope. And, I loved Lani Lynn Vale’s Code 11-KPD SWAT series. As soon as I read the blurb, I knew I would be reading this one. I don’t say that lightly, this is a big commitment for me, it’s book 9 in a series. But I’m looking forward to a long weekend spent binge reading all the previous books.
Biker Gang | Bad Boy | Mistaken Identity
Good vs Bad.
Light vs Dark.
Right vs Wrong.
There are always two sides to every coin.
Josiah ‘Liner’ Paldecki knew the moment he laid eyes on her that there was something different about her. Something special. Something so unique that it practically poleaxed him the moment that their eyes met. Read More
I’m just going to start this off by saying, Ms. Evans writes the best book-boyfriends. Typically her stories feature incredibly rich men and the relatable heroines who bring them to their knees. But this one is different, it’s the woman with the money and I can not wait to see how this story plays out.
Wrong Side of the Tracks | Romance
Heir apparent to her father’s company, Lizzy Banks needs a man. The perfect man. But when the rich “fundbabies” she usually rubs shoulders with prove impossible to hire, she takes a chance on a raw beast of a man salvaged from the wreckage of a bar brawl.
James Rowan earns a modest income as a YouTube daredevil, but he can’t refuse Lizzy’s million dollar deal. Read More
‘Tis the season for gay hockey romance novels a trope I very much enjoy reading. I loved every book in Ms. Gale’s Scoring Chances series and I’m so excited to read this one. I don’t know how I missed Off the Ice, the first book in the Hat Trick series but you can bet I’ll be remedying the situation – the book is currently third on my to-read list.
MM | Sports Romance
Ryu Mori has had a stellar season as goalie for the Atlanta Venom. So when he’s called into management’s office, he’s expecting to hear he’s the new starting goalie for the team, not that some new guy—an incredibly hot, annoyingly bratty rookie—is here to compete for his spot.
Not everyone gets to play in the best league in the world. Emmitt Armstrong knows that, and he’s not about to waste the opportunity after grinding his way from the bottom to the top. Read More
Helena Hunting always delivers a flawless romantic comedy. She’s my go to when I’m not sure if I need a feel good love story or hearty laugh.
Celebrity | Second Chance | RomCom
Talk about an embarrassing introduction. On her first day of law school, Kailyn ran – quite literally – into the actor she crushed on as a teenager, ending with him sprawled on top of her. Mortified to discover the Daxton Hughes was also a student in her class, her embarrassment over their meet-cute quickly turned into a friendship she never expected. Of course, she never saw his betrayal coming either…
Now, eight years later, Dax is in her office asking for legal advice. Read More
Who doesn’t love a guy with a big gun? Romantic suspense is often hit or miss for me because I prefer the romantic story line over the suspense. Having read an advanced copy of this wonderful book I can say the romance is front and center throughout. Plus, there’s a brooding alpha hero with secrets – who can resist that?
Chronic Illness | Men in Uniform | Romantic Suspense

Read More
Ms. Lauren is one of the most reliable authors on my kindle. For the most part, I’m known to giggle snort my way though her books. They’re always perfect weekend reads after a tough week in the office.
Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Amy, on the other hand, is probably the luckiest person in the world. Her meet-cute with her fiancé is something out of a romantic comedy (gag) and she’s managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a series of Internet contests (double gag). Worst of all, she’s forcing Olive to spend the day with her sworn enemy, Ethan, who just happens to be the best man. Read More
I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t read a whole lot of new adult romance novels. However, I’m a big fan of dating apps and seeing people who wouldn’t normally acknowledge each other forced to cooperate. This book promises to be a fun light read.
New Adult | College | Romance
When a notoriously difficult class for future entrepreneurs leads to three freshmen developing the next “it” app for dating on college campuses, all hell breaks loose…
Type A control freak Sara lives by her color-coordinated Post-it notes.
