I’ve been seeing all my bookish friends getting all hot and bothered for some of the 2019 release coming in the second half of this year and sure, I’m pretty excited for them too. But am I the only one who spends most of their time day-dreaming about 2020 releases?
Like no I don’t want to leave 2019 I just want these 2020 release in my hand, right now.
Guess it’s time to steal a time machine…
MY MOST ANTICIPATED 2020 RELEASES
HENNA WARS by Adiba Jaigirdar
I gasped the moment I read this pitch for Henna Wars – a rom-com about two teen girls with rival henna businesses who fall in love. You all say henna and I’m in. For anything. Plus it’s f/f. And it’s pitched as When Dimple Met Rishi meets Simon vs the Homo Sapien Agenda. HOW CAN I NOT BE SCREAMING AND CRYING?!?!!?
OF CURSES AND KISSES by Sandhya Menon
And of course we have Sandhya Menon publishing her new fairytale retelling series, the first book being Of Curses and Kisses. I mean can Sandhya get any more perfect? I already love all her soft and happy books and now she’s off exploring fantasy and that too my absolute favourite, fairytale retellings? Sign me the hell up!
I’ve also heard that the samplers were distributed at Book Con and I’m honestly so jealous I want to fly where to where Sandhya lives and get me one of those samplers.
INFINITY SON by Adam Silvera
I feel like I’ve been watching Adam Silvera draft and write and finish Infinity Son since forever now. He kept everyone updated on Twitter with his hashtag Phoenix Rising for his first fantasy novel and I’m really looking forward to see how Adam finds a way to break our hearts in the fantasy genre.
YES NO MAYBE SO by Aisha Saeed and Becky Albertalli
I remember screaming when I heard about Yes No Maybe So because it’s co-written by two of my favourite authors: Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed! I’m so freaking excited to read about this cross-cultural romance with the two main characters being shoved together awkwardly.
HARLEY IN THE SKY by Akemi Dawn Bowman
And last but not the least we have Harley In The Sky about a girl who betrays her family by joining a rival travelling circus to become a trapeze artist and gets thrust into a beautiful yet brutal world. First off, I’m a huge fan of Akemi and secondly give me any circus book and I’ll lap it up like a greedy dog! Thankfully I am part of the street team for Harley In The Sky which means I’ll get to read the ARC soon!
Also this is the only 2020 release whose cover has been revealed so feast your eyes on this stunning masterpiece!
