One of the best things about a new year, for bibliophiles such as us, are all the great new releases we can expect in the months to come. And for those, again, like us, who love the incredible works of Wattpad authors, it is a thrill to see some of those awesome titles and writers breaking through the publishing glass ceiling. 2019 is bringing with it some new titles that we can wait to get our grabby hands on from talented Wattpad writers, and we thought we would give you a little hint of what is to come!
*note* This is not a comprehensive listing of all Wattpad-t0-trad publications for 2019. We did our best to include as many as possible. Please feel free to include any we missed in the comments!

Ragnarok Unwound – Kristin Jacques – Skyforest Press
Prophecies don’t untangle themselves.
Just ask Ikepela Ives, whose estranged mother left her with the power to unravel the binding threads of fate. Stuck with immortal power in a mortal body, Ives has turned her back on the duty she never wanted.
But it turns out she can’t run from her fate forever, not now that Ragnarok has been set in motion and the god at the center of that tangled mess has gone missing. With a ragtag group of companions—including a brownie, a Valkyrie, and the goddess of death herself—Ives embarks on her first official mission as Fate Cipher—to save the world from doomsday.
Nothing she can’t handle. Right?

White Stag – Kara Barbieri – Wednesday Books
As the last child in a family of daughters, seventeen-year-old Janneke was raised to be the male heir. While her sisters were becoming wives and mothers, she was taught to hunt, track, and fight. On the day her village was burned to the ground, Janneke—as the only survivor—was taken captive by the malicious Lydian and eventually sent to work for his nephew Soren.
Janneke’s survival in the court of merciless monsters has come at the cost of her connection to the human world. And when the Goblin King’s death ignites an ancient hunt for the next king, Soren senses an opportunity for her to finally fully accept the ways of the brutal Permafrost. But every action he takes to bring her deeper into his world only shows him that a little humanity isn’t bad—especially when it comes to those you care about.
Through every battle they survive, Janneke’s loyalty to Soren deepens. After dangerous truths are revealed, Janneke must choose between holding on or letting go of her last connections to a world she no longer belongs to. She must make the right choice to save the only thing keeping both worlds from crumbling.

All Our Broken Pieces – L.D. Crichton – Disney Hyperion
Lennon Davis doesn’t believe in much, but she does believe in the security of the number five. If she flicks the bedroom light switch five times, maybe her new L.A. school won’t suck. But that doesn’t feel right, so she flicks the switch again. And again. Ten more flicks of the switch and maybe her new step family will accept her. Twenty-five more flicks and maybe she won’t cause any more of her loved ones to die. Fifty times more and then she can finally go to sleep.
Kyler Benton witnesses this pattern of lights from the safety of his treehouse in the yard next door. It is only there, hidden from the unwanted stares of his peers, that Kyler can fill his notebooks with lyrics that reveal the true scars of the boy behind the oversized hoodies and caustic humor. But Kyler finds that descriptions of blonde hair, sad eyes, and tapping fingers are beginning to fill the pages of his notebooks. Lennon, the lonely girl next door his father has warned him about, infiltrates his mind. Even though he has enough to deal with without Lennon’s rumored tragic past in his life, Kyler can’t help but want to know the truth about his new muse.

Love of my Life: Kara Cammilla Hawthorne
Rule Number Two: Stay way from the love of your life.
Last words I said to her: Don’t justify your love for me when you know it’s all sorts of wrong.
Rule Number Three: There are no rules. You know you’ll break them anyway.
Current Status: About to blow my shit apart.
