Here are the 2020 book releases I’m anticipating!
…do I have a HUGE backlist of unread books? Yes. Have I gotten to all the 2019 releases I was excited for? No. Do I plan on doing some rereads of old books in the new year? Yes. Does any of that stop me from scouring Goodreads and stalking friends’ book lists for 2020 releases to be excited about? Absolutely not. 😉
Release date TBA:
If you follow me on social media, you know I’ve been hyping this book for like a year. A dark YA fantasy about a banshee bound to a killer in a land bound in eternal winter and the banshee’s attempt to subvert her curse to save the life of the killer’s next victim–and possibly the whole world.
I don’t actually *know* that this is releasing in 2020, but it better be. I need the conclusion to the trilogy so I can know that all my babies are happy. THEY BETTER BE ALL SAFE AND HAPPY.
Cinderella! In space! BUT SHE’S A SOLDIER. But also a deserter on the run. Jenni has been sharing tidbits and quotes on her Instagram (@ivorypalaceprincess) and it sounds SO GOOD. She recently announced she’s publishing it in 2020! 😀
I loved the Scottish vibes of Oath of the Outcast, and it ended on a pretty cray-zay note, so I’m excited to see how this story finishes.
This book needs a title and needs to be released, because it’s so cool! An orphan girl who is always cold and steals heat from fires, steam–and people if she’s not careful. A fantasy world of steam vents and mysterious spirits. An adorable romance. I got to beta read this, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
May and July, dates TBA
What? It’d be a bad sign if I wasn’t excited for my own releases, wouldn’t it? ;P
I really liked A Curse so Dark and Lonely and, although I’m a little nervous, I am looking forward to part two.
A gender-swapped retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo? Um, YES PLEASE.
It’s been fun seeing Micheline share about her characters and story on her Instagram (@whimsicalillustration). I’m excited for this fantasy novel about young sailor caught up in a war.
FIRE HORSES. That’s literally all I needed to know to be on board. But yes, a race with phoenix horses sounds so cool.
A Christian fantasy set on a floating world whose movements are controlled by dancers of the Order–and a dancer who flees when she discovers the Order is built on lies.
A “tundra-inspired” retelling of The Hunchback of Notre Dame that has me intrigued.
“Every legend must start somewhere…
No prisoner who enters the gates of HopeWell ever leaves. But from the moment Oriel sets foot inside Anatroshka’s most formidable prison camp, she unsettles both commandant and prisoner alike with eyes that see beyond the surface and music that trails her everywhere…”
Beast by Schroeder was one of my favorite reads of 2019 (I just ordered it on paperback after only having ebook and I’m excite to reread it!), so I’m looking forward to this one.
Alessandra’s plan: 1. Woo the Shadow King. 2. Marry him. 3. Kill him and take his kingdom for herself. Just a little hitch: she needs to stop everybody else trying to kill him long enough to get to step two.
This cover is GORGEOUS. Do yourself a favor and go inspect it for the little details. But also, this sounds like a cool world with complex mythology and what looks like might be an enemies-to-lovers story I won’t hate…
FANTASY TRISTAN AND ISOLDE RETELLING!
Forbidden magic, rebellions, deadly competitions…all tantalizing.
The Storm Crow was another favorite 2019 read, and I’m anxious to know what happens next!
This Peter Pan-inspired story about a girl who drips gold dust from her fingers and a Peter who is starting to grow up sounds so intriguing!
And that’s as far out as I know! Assuming I haven’t forgotten any, which is entirely possible. What 2020 book releases are you excited for?
