2020 Books I've Preordered | My 6 Most Anticipated Releases (+16 Bonus Books)

Happy belated new year! I'm not making any promises about blogging regularly (we all saw how that turned out last year, oop), but I just got the blogging bug again and wanted to chat about some of the books that I'm absolutely bursting at the seams to read. A few of these have already come out because this is getting posted late into January, but that doesn't mean they were any less anticipated by me!

I don't preorder a lot of books usually, but I feel like this year was kind of an outlier because most of these books are sequels in series that I love and adore (with a couple of exceptions).

Come Tumbling Down - 7 January

Even though this one has already been released and I already have it in my home and on my shelves, I haven't read this one yet. I like to save these books for a time when I'm feeling a little bit down and want a quick escape to a different world. This one also is more of a direct sequel to the second book in the series, Down Among the Sticks and Bones, which is my favorite out of the four books I've read so far, and I kind of want to reread that before jumping into this one.  

I've pretty much had this one on preorder since the cover was revealed.

And it's a good thing that I did make this list late in January because otherwise, I wouldn't be able to gush about how much I love this series. I added this to my preorder list maybe a week or so ago because I impulse bought and immediately devoured the first volume of this in the first week of January. As soon as I finished it, I immediately bought the second book. 

It's been a long time since I've been this attached to a series and been this ravenous to read on with the story, so I had to preorder it. 

This one is a little bit of a gamble for me. But how could I not gamble on THAT COVER and this synopsis: 
Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happy endings. If they were real, her mother would still be able to remember her name and not in a care home with early onset dementia. A condition that Saoirse may one day turn out to have inherited. So she’s not looking for a relationship. She doesn’t see the point in igniting any romantic sparks if she’s bound to burn out.

But after a chance encounter at an end-of-term house party, Saoirse is about to break her own rules. For a girl with one blue freckle, an irresistible sense of mischief, and a passion for rom-coms.

Unbothered by Saoirse’s no-relationships rulebook, Ruby proposes a loophole: They don’t need true love to have one summer of fun, complete with every cliché, rom-com montage-worthy date they can dream up—and a binding agreement to end their romance come fall. It would be the perfect plan, if they weren’t forgetting one thing about the Falling in Love Montage: when it’s over, the characters actually fall in love… for real.
A F/F rom-com where the hardened against love character falls in love with a soft romantic is everything that I didn't know I needed. Also, I just have a gut feeling that I'll really relate to Saoirse's character. I am not prepared.

The sequel to one of my favorite reads of last year was another immediate add to this list. I really don't know what this will be about (I'm honestly worried that it won't be very good) other than it will obviously pick up after the events of the first. I really didn't need more.

While Rory Power's debut book, Wilder Girls, was one of the most divisive releases of last year, I was firmly in the this-is-amazing camp. It gave me major Annihilation meets Lord of the Flies vibes, and that atmosphere totally made the book for me. 

All I really know is that Power refers to this as the "corn book" and that the cover is stunning. I really love her writing style, and that was all I needed to preorder this book because I knew for sure that I would want to read it as soon as it came out.

The third book in the best current middle-grade series was an immediate pre-order for me. Like everyone else, I'm absolutely obsessed with this series. I can't believe we're finally getting the third book. I'm actually unbelievably excited, this is my most anticipated book of 2020.

The rest of these are some of my most intriguing releases of 2020. If you want all the releases for this year that are on my radar, here is my goodreads shelf. Most of these are ones that I will get from my library, see if they appear on scribd, or might buy for myself if I hear enough good buzz about them.
