Winter is the perfect season to smuggle up inside with a coffee and a good book.
Thankfully, this January is an epic month for interesting book releases!
I wanted to share with you the books being released this month that seemed the most interesting. Most of these books will certainly be added to my To-Be-Read List, and maybe yours too!
I have a weak spot for Suspense/Thriller/Mystery books, so you might see a couple of those in my list.
Without further ado, here are the most exciting book releases of January 2019!
