The topic of today's post is "A 2020 Release You Can't Wait To Read"

A book I saw on Net Galley, and requested is When I Was You by Amber Garza, (pub date 25th August 2020). 

This book sounds like the sort of book I enjoy reading. I've also recently binge watched You on Netflix and so that makes me want to give this one a try even more. 

About the book:

A 2020 Release You Can't Wait To Read #BookishBlogHops #NewReleases #Books
You meets Fatal Attraction in this up-all-night story of suspicion, obsession and motherhood.

It all begins on an ordinary fall morning, when Kelly Medina gets a call from her son’s pediatrician to confirm her upcoming “well-baby” appointment. It’s a cruel mistake; her son left for college a year ago, and Kelly’s never felt so alone. The receptionist quickly apologizes: there’s another mother in town named Kelly Medina, and she must have gotten their numbers switched.

For days, Kelly can’t stop thinking about the woman who shares her name. Lives in her same town. Has a son she can still hold, and her whole life ahead of her. She can’t help looking for her: at the grocery store, at the gym, on social media. When Kelly just happens to bump into the single mother outside that pediatrician’s office, it’s simple curiosity getting the better of her.

Their unlikely friendship brings Kelly a renewed sense of purpose—taking care of this young woman and her adorable baby boy. But that friendship quickly turns to obsession, and when one Kelly disappears, well, the other one may know why.

The Trouble with Gravity by KK Allen is one of my most anticipated books of 2020. Luckily, I didn’t have to wait too long since it released in January. KK Allen is one of my one-click authors. Everything she writes is filled with tons of angst and romance, which I love. You can read my full review of The Trouble with Gravity here.

My top anticipated book of 2020 is a thriller, Home Before Dark: A Novel by Riley Sager! The expected publication date was my birthday (July 7th, 2020), but it has actually been moved up to June 30th! I have absolutely loved this author’s other works and I can’t wait to get my hands on this one when it arrives at my local bookshop where I have it preordered. I’m extra excited about this one because the U.S. cover will glow in the dark. How neat is that?!

Several authors I know have released books already!
Author Kelly Blanchard started the year by releasing the NINTH book in her awesomely brilliant sci-fantasy series THE CHRONICLES OF LORREK. The book is called This Ends Now, and I, having already read the first five books, am beyond excited for it! 
Then there’s E. A. Copen, who released the second book in a series that spins off of her main series, The Judah Black Series. The spin-off is called The Silver Bullet Chronicles, and Book 2 is titled Fool’s Gold. I’ve read the first two Judah Black novels and another novella of hers, Beasts of Babylon, and I’ve really enjoyed her style and her characters--so I would deem this one worthwhile, for sure!
Of course, that’s only the beginning… Mark Lawrence I think might be releasing more books this year, and there’s no telling what any other author I’ve read is currently brewing for 2020--but one thing is for sure, this year will not go by without some great books hitting the market!

Laura Doherty - Tales of a Natural Spoonie - https://talesofanaturalspoonie.com

Roots of Corruption by Laura Laakso is my most eagerly anticipated release of 2020. This is the third installment of the Wilde Investigations series and luckily it is released this month. I am absolutely loving this book series as Yannia the books protagonist is a kick-ass female private investigator, juggling life while living with a chronic illness. I love how multi-dimensional and complex she is and this brings a realness to the series that is often lacking in fantasy and urban fantasy. You can read my review of the first book Fallible Justice here.

Kim - Writer Side of Life www.writersideoflife.com 

My favourite author, Diana Gabaldon, is releasing the next book in the historical fiction Outlander series around July 2020. It is called Go Tell The Bees That I am Gone.

I'm also looking forward to The City We Became, a fantasy set in New York by N. K. Jemisin, which is due out in March.

Valerie, Cats Luv Coffee Book Reviews www.catsluvcoffee.com
I have quite a few releases that I’m looking forward to this year. A new Kathy Reichs book in Temperance Brennan series, A Conspiracy of Bones (number NINETEEN!) is releasing this year. This is the series that the tv show Bones was based on if you’ve ever seen it. Another of my favorite authors, Kim Harrison, is actually starting over with a new urban fantasy series based on The Hollows series. American Demon (Return to the Hollows, #1) is releasing in June. It’s going to be strange since the series actually ended with a future time jump (think Harry Potter) so I’m not sure how it’s going to feel already knowing the ending. 
The long awaited Peace Talks by Jim Butcher (The Dresden Files, #16) is releasing in July. There hasn’t been a new novel in the series since 2014 so I know I’ll devour it. I just hope it lives up to the expectations!

I have to choose Photos From You by Tammy Robinson. This book discusses the last months of a woman with terminal cancer and how the people in her life surrounded her with care and love. I only skimmed over the blurb before reading this so there was something really special that I was not prepared for with this book. This is a highly emotional read, but I found this to be truly compelling, especially as it is so well-written. Highly recommended.

I just love anything written by Karen Swan. Her books include romance with mystery and an element of suspense. I am eagerly checking my mailbox for an ARC of her latest book The Hidden Beach due out in April 2020.

Kelsey - There’s Something About KM https://theressomethingaboutkm.com/

There are two 2020 releases I am highly anticipating, and fortunately they will both be available in the first half of this year. The first is Afterlife by Julia Alvarez, and is, on the surface, about a woman who encounters heartbreak and unexpected life events. I expect it to be a profound, gut wrenching, and exquisite piece of literature (out in April). 

The second book is the final installment of The Daevabad Trilogy: The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty. The City of Brass (#1) and The Kingdom of Copper (#2) provide dangerous, exciting, anticipatory adventure, as well as gorgeous settings and descriptions - I am expecting no less from the third book (out in June).
