Who else feels like we’re in a limbo between 2019 and 2020? Oh, good. It’s not just me. This has been the weirdest work week because of it being shortened as well as it being ridiculously slow at work. Though I will say, I’m glad I don’t work in retail anymore because dealing with returns wasn’t the best experience.
I haven’t been paying too much attention to books coming out next year, because I get impatient and then that kind of affects my reading. I get too excited to read books that aren’t even out yet, so I end up losing interest in ones that I already have. However, there are some authors that I follow and have seen announcements for new books, so obviously, these are ones I’m looking forward to in the coming year.
Anticipated Books of 2020
One of Us is Next – Karen M. McManus (1/7/2020)
I loved the first two books by McManus, so I’m really looking forward to this sequel of One of Us is Lying. Though I might have to reread that one before diving into this. It’s been about two years since I’ve read that first book. She also has another book, The Cousins, coming out in December 2020, which I have no idea what it’s about, but I’m excited for it because I love McManus’s work so far.
Ember Queen – Laura Sebastian (2/4/2020)
I actually have yet to read Ash Princess – the first book in the series – but that will be one of my first reads of the new year. I have a good feeling I’ll like this series, so I’m already anticipating this final book. Plus… LOOK AT THAT COVER *heart eyes*
Love and Olives – Jenna Evans Welch (7/7/2020)
I absolutely loved Welch’s first book and honestly just love her concept for her books – traveling and finding love. But she writes in a way that really makes you feel like you’re there in those countries, experiencing it all with the main characters.
House of Earth and Blood – Sarah J. Maas (3/3/2020)
I still have yet to read her YA fantasy novels, or at least A Court of Thorns and Roses, but this new book of hers for adult fantasy caught my eye and I might end up reading this first once it comes out.
Someday in Paris – Olivia Lara (5/14/2020)
I’m not too big on books set back in time, even if it is just the mid-1900s. But I am a sucker for both Paris and long lost love stories, so I think I’ll enjoy this one. At least, I hope I will.
