Most Anticipated Releases đź’« January & February 2020

Today we will be chatting about the books I am looking forward to for Jan & Feb 2020!

January 2020 Releases

Firstly we have A Heart so Fierce and Broken which releases Jan 7th! This is of course the sequel to A Curse So Dark and Lonely which I read towards the beginning of 2019 and really enjoyed. There were a couple things that weren’t my fave but I’m super keen to see where this story goes and I’m keen to read from Grey’s POV in A Heart so Fierce and Broken as that wasn’t in Book 1!

Next we have One of us is Next which also releases Jan 7th! This is the sequel to One of Us is Lying which was a really good YA Mystery book! I also enjoyed Two can keep a Secret by the same author. So I super keen to see what she rights next and how she introduces a sequel to One of us is Lying.

Lastly for Jan 7th releases we have Come Tumbling Down which is book 5 in the Wayward Children series. So far I have loved 3 of the 4 books in the series I have read. So I can’t wait to see what unusual and awesome world Seanan McGuire creates in Come Tumbling Down!

Then we have This Vicious Cure which releases Jan 21st! This is the final book in the This Mortal Coil series! I absolutely loved This Mortal Coil & This Cruel Design, so I can’t wait for this book! This is just such a well written book with a unique and super interesting dystopian world! So freaking keen!

Lastly for February we have The Hand on the Wall which also releases Jan 21st! This is my most anticipated book in this list for sure! This is the finale for the Truly Devious series. I absolutely adored Truly Devious & The Vanishing Stair. It is such a good YA Mystery series that is full of twists & turns. This is one of the books that I will probably pick up AS SOON as it arrives at my door! I am so keen to know how these mysteries are solved but I also don’t want this series to end.

February 2020 Releases

Now for some books that aren’t actually sequels! Firstly, we have Belle RĂ©volte which releases Feb 1st. A LGBT YA Fantasy by a freaking awesome author with possibly a badass female main character? Sounds freaking awesome to me! I have read Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller, which I really enjoyed, so I’m keen to see what else this author can do!

Then we have All the Stars and Teeth which releases Feb 4th. Not going to lie, I hadn’t heard of this book before making this list. This cover came up and the name really intrigued me. So I had a look at the synopsis and it sounds freaking awesome. A YA adventure type fantasy with pirates & mermaids???? Count me in! This is a debut, so also super keen to see how this one goes.

Next we hav the last sequel on this list, Heartstopper Vol 3 which releases Feb 6th. This is obviously the sequel to Heartstopper Vol 1 & Vol 2 which is just a super easy, quick & cute romance graphic novel. I also loved Radio Silence & I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman which are both super unique & interesting contemporary novels.

Second last we have The Shadows Between Us which releases Feb 25th. This is Tricia Levenseller’s new Standalone by the looks of it. Which I’m keen for because there really isn’t enough YA Fantasy standalones out there. I read and enjoyed the Daughter of the Pirate King duology but I wasn’t the biggest fan of Warrior of the Wild, her previous standalone. Either way, I’m super keen to see what she does next!

Lastly we have Red Hood which releases also on Feb 25th. This is another YA Fantasy standalone but this one is also a Red Riding Hood retelling that sounds dark and so interesting! I haven’t read anything by this author just yet but I’m keen to give them a go! This one also sounds really good and I love a good retelling!

What book can’t you wait to release this year? Are you keen for any of these books?!

January 2019 Anticipated Releases

So it is time to talk about the books I am anticipating for January 2019! I won’t go into details about most of these as I don’t know a tonne about them as I prefer to go into my books not knowing a tonne. However, some are sequels I am super keen for! So let’s jump in.

The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson

This is the sequel to Truly Devious which I absolutely loved! It made it to my best books of 2018! I am so keen to continue the mystery and see where it goes next!

In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire

This is book 4 in the Wayward Children series. I have had an on and off experience with this series. I enjoyed book 1, didn’t love book 2 & loved book 3! Book 3 made it to my Best Books of 2018 as well! So I am interested to see what I will think of book 4!

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus

Next we have Two Can Keep a Secret which is Karen M. McManus’s release after her debut in 2017. I really enjoyed One Of Us Is Lying so when I saw that she is releasing another YA Mystery I had to jump on board!

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

This is probably the most highly anticipated on this list! This is the start of a a new companion to the Grisha Trilogy & the Six of Crows duology. I’m keen to see where this one will go.

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

This one and the next I have as eARCs from NetGalley. At the time I requested it, I liked the cover and found the synopsis interesting. I can’t remember what it is about and I don’t particularly wont to know either. This is a YA Fantasy and is apparently a retelling but I am not sure what of.

The Flower Girls by Alice Clark-Platts

This is another one from NetGalley and I don’t remember what it is about either. I do know that it is a YA Mystery though.

Circle of Shadows by Evelyn Skye

This one I know nothing about except that it is a YA Fantasy by an author that I have heard of but haven’t read anything from.

The Cerulean by Amy Ewing

This one I only discovered when looking at a list of 2019 January releases and the cover is gorgeous & the author’s name sounded familiar for some reason. So I checked out the synopsis and it sounded intriguing.

When a powerful Archon offers his army in exchange for Markos’s marriage to his daughter, Caro must choose: Her love for Markos, or the fate of Akhaia?

As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister’s life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.

Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer.

And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias’s devotion–even at the cost of his humanity.

Monday wouldn’t just leave her to endure tests and bullies alone. Not after last year’s rumors and not with her grades on the line. Now Claudia needs her best—and only—friend more than ever. But Monday’s mother refuses to give Claudia a straight answer, and Monday’s sister April is even less help.

As Claudia digs deeper into her friend’s disappearance, she discovers that no one seems to remember the last time they saw Monday. How can a teenage girl just vanish without anyone noticing that she’s gone?

She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.

Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If Tella can’t fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend’s name, she’ll lose everything she cares about—maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever.

New Blog Title (8)

Follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world…or doom it.

When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.

A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable–until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world–and of each other.

Okay, so again I only have 3 books on this list again but again I am really keen for them! I already have an eARC of one of them and I can’t wait to get my hands on the other two. However, the pool I’m working at is closing for the season in April and won’t open again until September. So as I will be living off the money I make in my at home beauty salon I won’t be able to purchase any books for a while. I will be relying on my huge TBR pile and on the Scribd app.

Publishers: Harlequin Teen

New Blog Title

Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.

Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.

Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.

Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…

And she’ll need to play.

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.

So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.

Now, ZĂ©lie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, ZĂ©lie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.

Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.

Well, that is it! What release are you anticipating in November?! Let me know in the comments.

Genre: YA Fantasy

Goodreads Synopsis for Three Dark Crowns:

When kingdom come, there will be one.

In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born—three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.

But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.

The last queen standing gets the crown.

But Mira has never felt as perfect as everyone says. She counts compulsively. She struggles with crippling anxiety. And she’s far too interested in dragons for a girl of her station.


Then Mira discovers an explosive secret that challenges everything she and the Treaty stand for. Betrayed by the very people she spent her life serving, Mira is sentenced to the Pit–the deadliest prison in the Fallen Isles. There, a cruel guard would do anything to discover the secret she would die to protect.

No longer beholden to those who betrayed her, Mira must learn to survive on her own and unearth the dark truths about the Fallen Isles–and herself–before her very world begins to collapse.

Here is a thing everyone fears:
What it takes to get one.

Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado is likely to find a landscape of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls, estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of watchful desert stars.

At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz, the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.

They are all looking for a miracle. But the miracles of Bicho Raro are never quite what you expect.

Maggie Stiefvater has been called “a master storyteller” by USA Today and “wildly imaginative” by Entertainment Weekly. Now, with All the Crooked Saints, she gives us the extraordinary story of an extraordinary family, a masterful tale of love, fear, darkness, and redemption.

Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast


This is a book that I already have an eARC of! Review will be coming before the end of September!

Release Date: 1st Oct, 2017 according to NetGalley – 29th of Aug according to Goodreads & Book Depository
Genre: YA Sci-Fi

Goodreads Synopsis:

He has no voice, or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.

Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.

His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.

Until a human kills her…

Sixteen year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from the human resistance.

Shelter in place.

Which seems like good advice at first. Stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other…

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli


This is another one I have an eARC for! This one is also still available for request on NetGalley on Hachette Australia.
A review will be coming for this ne before the end of September too.

Release Date: 3rd Oct, 2017
Genre: YA Fantasy

Goodreads Synopsis: 

In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be dark—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death bringer.

These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up hearing in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.

Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

I have an ARC of this book. On the back of it, it says it releases 1st of November but on Goodreads it says 1st of September and this book is available for purchase on QBD. It looks like this one will only be available in Australia as I can’t find it on Book Depository and a couple other international based sites and couldn’t find it. So sorry guys that are Aussie!

Renegades by Marissa Meyer


This cover to me honestly makes me think of a Graphic Novel!

Release Date: 7th Nov, 2017
Genre: YA Fantasy

Goodreads Synopsis:

From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer, comes a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal.

Secret Identities.
Extraordinary Powers.
She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi


Release Date: 14th Nov, 2017
Genre: Middle-Grade Fantasy

Goodreads Synopsis:

A new adventure about a girl who is fated to wash the bodies of the dead in this companion to Furthermore.

Our story begins on a frosty night…

Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.

And I think that is all for now!

Let me know what you are looking forward to the most in the upcoming months!

This week’s prompts is: Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017

Well I don’t know if I have 10, so I’ll just put as many as I have

1. One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake


I have read Three Dark Crowns and really enjoyed it! So I’m keen to get to the second/last book in the series! This one comes out in September.

2. The Becoming of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin


This is the first book in a new companion series to the Mara Dyer series. I hope to get to the Mara Dyer series soon and then if I enjoy it as much as I hope then I will go straight onto this series when it comes out in November.

3. Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi


This is another companion book, this one to the book Futhermore by Tahereh Mafi. I also plan to read Furthermore very soon as it has been on my radar for a while and I’m keen to get to it once I get my current physical TBR down a bit more! At the moment I can’t fit anymore books on my TBR shelves! This one is released in August.

4. Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo


I have only read one book from Leigh Bardugo and that was Shadow and Bone, the first book in the Grisha trilogy! I loved Leigh Bardugo’s writing and I’m interested to see what’s next for her away from the Grisha world! This one is released in August.

Well that is all I have! I haven’t been paying attention to new releases as much this year as last year. There is sooo many books that aren’t new releases that I really want to get to! So I haven’t been checking out tonnes of new releases! There was some I couldn’t stay away from like The Hate U Give, A Court of Wings and Ruin, Caraval, etc. But overall concentrating on older books.
