12 Books to Anticipate in 2019

7. The Path Made Clear – Oprah Winfrey

Oprah has always been an almost mythological figure in the world of self-help and female empowerment. Her latest book, The Path Made Clear, is a guide book for “activating your deepest vision of yourself.” The book is laid out in 10 chapters, each of which is meant to help guide you towards self-discovery. Along the way, Oprah shares life lessons from her own journey and enlists some of her friends like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Eckhart Tolle, and Ellen DeGeneres to do the same.

This book is great for diehard Oprah fans or people who are looking for a bit of personal development inspiration. It goes on sale at the end of March.


8. Fifty Things That Aren’t My Fault – Cathy Guisewite

You may not know this author’s name, but you probably recognize her quippy cartoons. Cathy Guisewite is none other than the author of the Cathy cartoons, which are in syndication in newspapers all over the country.

Her latest book, Fifty Things That Aren’t My Fault, is a book of essays written about life’s biggest transitions. She brings the wit and insight that you loved from her cartoon strip and takes on “threshold” moments like moving your parents to a condo and figuring out what to do after retirement. If you’re going through a transition, this life-affirming book is a must-read.


9. Machines Like Me – Ian McEwan

Set for release mid-April, Ian McEwan’s newest novel has already gotten people talking. After the success of his earlier novels Atonement and On Chesil Beach, people are expecting great things from the upcoming Machines Like Me. The book is a huge departure from some of his other work as it follows a love triangle between the first group of synthetic humans in an alternate version of 1980s London. The book asks fundamental questions about our reality, humanity, and what defines us.
