Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020
Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
I feel like so many pub dates have shifted that a lot of my books from my post for the first half of 2020 would move into this list! I’ve decided to keep this list away from those books (to highlight more), since I already posted about them. I also am going to avoid review copies AND books from my Summer TBR posts (here and here). Therefore, we’re looking at books being published between late September and December.
I absolutely couldn’t put down Dear Martin when I read it so you know Dear Justyce is on my list. I hope it’s equally impactful and quick to read! I’m super excited for A Deadly Education because it sounds similar to Harry Potter with a wizarding school. Gorgeous cover too! Simmer Down focuses on the food truck scene, which is something I’m super into in general, so this will be awesome. Another fun cover too!
I love books set over the course of one day, and This Is All Your Fault involves saving an indie bookstore too. Sounds right up my alley. The Truth Project is another one that drew me in because it’s a bit of Lauren-bait. DNA results come back and the MC finds out that their father isn’t actually their father? Yes please. Snapped is the next book in the Playbook series and it was a bit of a surprise! So excited to see where this group of ladies and football players go next. Instant Karma is Marissa Meyer’s latest release and it’s more contemporary than her others, so I’m really excited to see how it goes. She’s an auto-buy for me of course!
Love & Olives is the third book in a companion series that I’ve read with mixed results. I DNFed the first book but really loved the second, so I’ll definitely give this one a try. This Is Not the Jess Show kind of reminds me of The Truman Show but I’m not 100% sure if that’s the direction it’ll go. I’m SUPER intrigued to find out though! And finally, Heiress Apparently is about fictionalized descendants of a Chinese empress and just seems so fun, now that I’m more interested in royal books!
