Hey everyone! So today’s my BIRTHDAY! *confetti shower*
Anyway, I always like getting excited over books that are coming out soon, so this seemed like a pretty good way to spend the day. So let’s see what we should get hyped over!
Top Ten Most Anticipated Late 2020 Releases
1. Majesty (American Royals, #2) by Katharine McGee — Sept. 1
Why yes, I would like to read more about an American royal family descended from the Washingtons and their first Queen ever, thank you for asking.
2. The Glass Queen (The Forest of Good and Evil, #2) by Gena Showalter — Sept. 29
It’s a clever mix of fairy tales and I just can’t turn that kind of thing down.
3. More Than Just a Pretty Face by Syed M. Masood — Aug. 4
I’m not sure what exactly the ethnicity is of the main characters, but I don’t care. It’s billed as being similar to other rom-coms that deal with family expectations and other serious topics and that’s my catnip.
4. Igniting Darkness (Courting Darkness, #2) by Robin LaFevers — Aug. 4
The His Fair Assassin series is one of my favorites and while I didn’t necessarily love the first book in this duology like I loved the original series, I’m certainly not turning down the chance to go back to this very fun historical-fantasy world.
5. Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon — July 28
It’s Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist played out during a senior prank/game by two overachievers. I’m in. Also, the Goodreads ratings so far are insanely high.
6. Now That I’ve Found You by Kristina Forest — Aug. 25
Starlets, musicians, and a hunt for a famous grandma intent on avoiding the limelight. This sounds like a ridiculous rom-com and I am here for it.
7. Charming as a Verb by Ben Philippe — Sept. 8
This book is about a first-generation Haitian son in NYC who is killin’ it at school and his dog-walking business…until a girl at his school catches onto his less-than-honest scheme and blackmails him into improving her rep at school. Apparently the story turns YA stereotypes on its head and really gets into the characters mentally. Sounds fun.
8. All Our Worst Ideas by Vicky Skinner — Aug. 11
When high school doesn’t go the way you thought and you end up working at a record store, I suppose this is what you get. This looks super cute.
9. Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power — July 7
Margot has no family other than her mother. In her search to find relatives–a family–she finds a picture of her mother as a younger girl that leads her to a town. But her mom left for a reason… This looks to be billed as horror? I’m expecting good things.
10. Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco — Oct. 27
Honestly, this looks like a version of Supernatural with girls from the blurb. Two witch twin sisters are blending in with humans–until the day one of the twins is brutally murdered. The remaining sister partners with the Wicked–a prince from Hell–to solve the mystery. This is the author of the Stalking Jack the Ripper series, so I know she can write dark. I’m just hoping the mystery is better.
