1st Quarter Anticipated Releases | 2020

Hi everyone!

 I am doing this post a little bit different than I did in 2019. There are so many titles that I’m interested in this year and there is no way I can pick just a few. So I am going to break this down and do an anticipated releases post every quarter. 

These books will be released from January-March!

As always, if you want to know more about any of these, their Goodreads pages will be linked.

A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

Release date: January 7

I have actually already read this, but I am SO excited to have the book in my hands. This is the second book in the Cursebreaker series. 

Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire

Release date: January 7

This is the fifth book in the Wayward Children series. I am so excited to see what these characters are up to.

Lucky Caller by Emma Mills

Release date: January 14

I swear Emma Mills always has the most beautiful covers. Lucky Caller involves radio broadcasting and fandoms so that is right up my alley. I am expecting this to be a fluffy contemporary with an adorable romance and amazing friendships.

Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore

Release date: January 14

This story follows two time periods where women fall ill to a sickness that makes them dance in the streets until their death. I have never read anything by this author and honestly their backlist titles don’t interest me very much, but Dark and Deepest Red sounds so good! The cover is gorgeous as well.

Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed

Release Date: February 4

I literally have no idea what this book is about but it is partially written by Becky Albertalli and that is enough for me to be excited about.

Belle Révolte by Linsey Miller

Release date: February 4

This is another one that I have already read! I really loved this and I want everyone to read it!! My review will be up very soon.

The King of Crows by LIbba Bray

Release date: February 4

The fourth and final book in The Diviners series. I have to admit, I am not caught up to it yet, but I absolutely loved the first book and I can’t wait to read more.

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas

Release date: March 3

Okay so before I get real excited for this book…can anyone tell me if this has anything to do with her other series?? I have only read Throne of Glass and I really don’t have an interest in continuing on. Help me out here!

Bone Crier’s Moon by Kathryn Purdie

Release date: March 10

I am literally obsessed with this cover.

Night of the Dragon by Julie Kagawa

Release date: March 31

I am not caught up with this trilogy either, but I am still looking forward to the final book! I actually haven’t seen the cover until now, and oh my gosh I love it.

I am sure there will be others along the way that will interest me, but for now, these are the ten that I am so ready to read!

Colorful Covers | Red

I have been watching the Owlcrate team do this series on their YouTube channel and I think it is such a fun idea! So basically what’s going to happen is every moth I will pick a color and then recommend you a few books that have that specific color on it’s cover.

This month we are starting with RED!

As always, if you’d like to know more about any of these books, I have linked their Goodreads pages!

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

We all knew this was going to make this list, right?! I’ve gushed about Simon to the point that you are probably tired of hearing about it! It’s one of my all time favorite books. It’s funny, intense and hopeful! I also highly recommend the movie Love, Simon! It is one of the best adaptations I have ever seen!

Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa

One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos. Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn…

This book was a total surprise for me. I got it in an Owlcrate box last year and I hadn’t really heard anything about it before then. I decided just to pick it up one day and I am so glad that I did. I absolutely loved it! If you are looking for a book that is full of danger, demons, action and adventure…then you NEED to give this a try!

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free.
It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy. There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.

For real though, if you don’t read any of the other books on this list…PLEASE read this one! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I adore this book. It is action packed and will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Sabaa Tahir’s writing, characters and world is stunning beyond belief! I’m actually planning to reread this very soon and I cannot wait!

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives.

This Savage Song is dark, creepy and so unique! From the very beginning to the very end I was invested in the story. Schwab’s way of writing will make you completely lose track of time. You will be SO into the story that you blink and you have been reading for three hours. It’s amazing. I fell head over heels in love with the characters. August is precious and Kate is a baddass. This would be a perfect read for the upcoming fall season!

What are some of your favrotie books with red on the cover? Have you read any of the books I mentioned?

Auto Buy Authors

We all have an auto buy author list, right??

Today I am sharing some of the authors that make up my list! For one reason or another, I will purchase ANYTHING they write!

Leigh Bardugo

The legend. The queen. She could write a restaurant menu and I would buy ten copies. I have loved everything I have ever read by her. Six of Crows is one of my favorite books of all time. The Grishaverse is so fascinating, but I am DYING to read her new adult fantasy, Ninth House later this year. I’ve had it pre ordered for months!

Stephanie Garber

The Caraval trilogy is one of my all time favorites. Stephanie Garber has such a magical way of telling a story. I am looking forward to what she will do next!

Shea Ernshaw

I read The Wicked Deep almost a year ago, but I still find myself thinking about it. I loved how atmospheric & eerie it was. I am not so patiently waiting for Shea Ernshaw’s sophomore novel, Winterwood! It is without a doubt my most anticipated release for the rest of the year!

Becky Albertalli

Okay so Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is incredible! We can all agree on that?! I have read it three times now & each reread I fall in love with it a little more. Becky Albertalli writes such fun, adorable, diverse and relatable characters. I will forever read all of her work!

Brigid Kemmerer

The newest author to be added to my list. I recently read Letters to the Lost & A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer and both were 5 star reads! I love her writing so much. It is very easy to get lost between the pages.
