It’s the midway point of 2020 (!!!) and we’re primed and ready to do what we do best: take about anticipated books. Or more specifically Anticipated Books of 2020, part 2 since we’ve already talked about our January – June (or thereabouts) excitement.
Below is a bit of an eclectic selection of books because while I have my favorite overall, contemporary fiction, I do enjoy a historical novel once in a while, so long as it’s the “right” kind of historical. I’ve already talked about other anticipated reads (not just in the ‘part one’ from early this year) in last week’s latest booktube video. But I tried not to double up so we talk about separate books to be excited for! These aren’t going to necessarily be books I end up for sure reading/buying because I’ll read more about them as their release dates draw closer, which makes them more in line with books I’m curious about than for sure going to read. For now, they either draw me in by their cover or do sound good and fun.
Let’s toss some confetti and get excited for the books we’ll add to our shelves – and best of all READ, during these latter months of 2020.
ANTICIAPTED BOOKS OF 2020, PART 2
Sorted by release date; and then author a-z

1: The Crushing Depths, Dani Pettrey
2: Paris is Alaways a Good Idea, Jenn McKinlay (July)
3: To Love a Prince, Rachel Hauck (August)
4: Bookish and the Beast, Ashley Poston (August)
I feel odd adding this one considering I haven’t yet read anything by this author, and therefore, who knows if I’ll like her writing. That said, this one sound fun, so… we’re going with it. Amazon | Goodreads
5: As Easy as Cherry Pie, Bell Renshaw (August)
6: Well Played, Jen DeLuca (September)
7: The Code for Love and Heartbreak, Jillian Cantor (October)
8: Jane in Love, Rachel Givney (October)
In this contemporary romance, Jane Austen travels to our modern world where she finds love. I’m SO hopeful this one will be a tribute to Austen and her style despite its contemporary setting because golly, it sure sounds cute. Amazon | Goodreads
9: Love Your Life, Sophie Kinsella (October)
Yes, Sophie Kinsella is another author whose books I have not read. Still, they sound fun, so why not add her latest to the stack of books I’m interested (and hopefully will enjoy) in reading. Amazon | Goodreads
10: In a Holidaze, Christina Lauren (October)
When it comes to this one I have a strong feeling the tag of I-don’t-care-for-this-book will be attached. This because I’ve read one and a half books by this writing duo, and just cannot like their novels. (No matter how much I want to.) That said, I’m adding this one because it’s a seasonal read which we all know I’m a softie for, and I’d like to think if any of their novels can win me over, it’d be this. Amazon | Goodreads
11: A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow, Laura Taylor Namey (October)
Haven’t read The Library of Lost Things, but this followup novel by the same author looks so dang cute! I couldn’t help but bend to the peer pressures of its cuteness; and it sounds it too. Amazon | Goodreads
12: The Cul-De-Sac War, Melissa Ferguson (November)
13: Things We Didn’t Say, Amy Green (November)
A new epistolary novel by a debut author (who is actually a publicist with the publisher where her book is being published), this is a historical novel I’m quite curious about. Do you like the epistolary style? Amazon | Goodreads
14: Instant Karma, Marissa Meyer (November)
Is it odd that I’ve never read a novel by Marissa Meyer, but am still pumped about this one? If you’re curious as to “why,” it’s because this one is a contemporary novel – which will be a genre debut for this author, and is of course, my favorite of them all! Amazon | Goodreads
15: The Dress Shop on King Street, Ashely Clark (December)
A debut (of a full-length novel), this is historical fiction about a woman who pins “all her hopes on a future in fashion design.” Sounds really interesting and I love that it has an angle on the world of fashion in a historical setting. Amazon | Goodreads
