Another year, another year of new releases and adventures!
I’m currently writing out this list from Myrtle Beach, SC, with the beach in view. It’s a family tradition to hit the beach the week between Christmas and New Year’s, and while we’ve gone to Pensacola in past years, this time around we did something different. I’m looking forward to relaxing and setting some goals for the new year. One goal, of course, being to read lots of good books and keep up on my blogging!
Here is Part 1 of the books I’m most looking forward to in 2020, feel free to share your list below in the comments!
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas
As I’ve said previously, I’m pure SJM trash and proud of it, so her new series is high on my list.
A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer
It’s been a while since I read the first book, so I might need to go back to that before reading the sequel. I wasn’t absolutely thrilled with the first book but I love Beauty and the Beast retellings, and I’m curious to know what happens next. I’m a big believer that sequels can be better than first novels.
Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Aurora Rising was on my TBR for a solid few months but I never really got around to it until recently, and boy, I’m glad I finally did. I’m a fan of JK so I knew it would probably be a passable book but the relationships between the team members and the heists drew me in. I can’t wait to ship Aurora and Kal some more in the sequel.
The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller
I’ve been a fan of just about everything Tricia has written, my favorite probably being her Daughter of the Pirate Queen series. But I also loved Warrior of the Wild, so I admire her range of topics. This one contains the theme of wooing a “Shadow King” so yep, I’m there.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
Just like the Twilight series, I started on The Hunger Games before it became super popular and turned into a movie series. I remember really enjoying the books and I feel obligated to read this prequel, set more than 50 years before the events of the first book.
Night of the Dragon by Julie Kagawa
Kagawa’s Shadow of the Fox series is a hidden gem in the YA world that doesn’t get enough appreciation. This is the last in the trilogy and things got intense in the second book, so I’m excited to see how it all ends.
