2020 Book Releases I’m Excited For

I was scrolling through my WordPress drafts today and found this post from February 2nd that I never published. I like to go back to these types of posts at the end of each year and see what I thought of the books I was excited to read–so I thought I’d go ahead and hit publish on this one so I can do that later next month! I can say, I’ve read the majority of these by now and they’re all excellent, so maybe this post will give you some Christmas gift ideas for your bookworm friends 🙂

First up are the books that I was extremely excited for and counted down the days until they released!

Seeing Voices, Olivia Smit (release date: April 15th)

Olivia is such an awesome friend, and I absolutely can’t wait to read her novel!


A Heart So Fierce and Broken, Brigid Kemmerer (release date: January 7th)

I have this on hold at my library right now and I’m just waiting for it to come in. Looking forward to it!


Unravel the Dusk, Elizabeth Lim (release date: July 7th)

Y’all, I am SO FREAKING EXCITED for this book. I literally can’t wait. Spin the Dawn was so good and the sequel is going to be even better.


Set Fire to the Gods, Sara Raasch and Kristen Simmons (release date: August 4th)

This author combo seems like the perfect duo and I’ve loved seeing their behind-the-scenes Instagram posts about working on this book!

Scammed, Kristen Simmons (release date: February 4th)

Conveniently, the new Deceivers book always comes out around the time of my birthday. I’m super excited to see what happens in this one (but I’m super not a fan of these new covers, sorry).

This Too Shall Last, K.J. Ramsey (release date: May 12th)

I’ve already pre-ordered this, and I can’t wait! K.J.’s sessions at Diamonds 2020 were awesome, so I know her book will be amazing too–and I absolutely love the title.


Finally, here are a few books that I will most likely read, but am not quite as over-the-moon excited about–many of them are by authors I haven’t read before, so it’ll be a totally new experience:

  • Rule of Wolves, Leigh Bardugo
  • Imagine Me, Tahereh Mafi
  • Woven in Moonlight, Isabel Ibanez
  • The Stars We Steal, Alexa Donne
  • Time of Our Lives, Austin Siegemund-Broka and Emily Wibberly
  • The Other Side of the Sky, Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
  • The Queen’s Assassin, Melissa de la Cruz (this is the only book on this list that I’ve read and didn’t like, just an fyi for your Christmas shopping needs)
  • The Kingdom of Back, Marie Lu (okay I forgot about this one and it looks SO GOOD?! I need it asap)
  • The Gilded Ones, Namina Forna

So, now that the year is almost over, haha, there are the books I was looking forward to reading in 2020! Were there any 2020 releases you were particularly excited about? Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments!
