Top 5 Tuesday: Anticipated Releases for 2020

The theme two weeks ago was “books I need to read in 2020” and as I have given up on TBRs and whatnot I am going to link you to my previous “New releases I didn’t get to in 2019” because basically those are the books I would like to read!

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Book Worm. Since the T5W seems to be MIA, and since this particular topic inspired me (because, you know, I try not to make TBRs but I also LOVE talking about books that I want to read!) I decided to participate at least for today, but I don’t know yet how often I will take part!

And anyway, without further ado, here are some of my most anticipated releases for the year 2020 (a number which by the way still seems very unrealistic).

Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi

I discovered Roshani Chokshi in 2019 and got obsessed with her books. I am relentlessly recommending this series at work, and I cannot wait to see what will happen in the third installment! It’s taking me back to my PJO reading years and I am here for that. I love sassy kids fighting ancient gods, and I cannot wait to see what the Tree of Wishes will have in store for us.

Bridge of Souls by Victoria Schwab

Cassidy Blake is the second middle grade story I got obsessed with in the year 2019. I love how original and quirky it is, while also meddling with great travelling and historical points. I know I have to wait for most of the year, but I’m really excited! And I am also delighted to let you know that the French translation of City of Ghosts is getting released this week, and I cannot wait to shove it into everyone’s hands!

The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar

I saw the blurb for this one on twitter, and I was immediately hyped. I don’t read enough F/F books to be honest and I do want to read more. Plus, this one seems right up my alley, so I’ll be on the lookout!

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

Did I ever think a new book in the Hunger Games universe would be released? No I didn’t. But now that it’s happening, I need it and I cannot wait! (And also I’m not that excited about the fact that it’s going to be about SNOW of all people, I have to admit I am still curious.)

Infinity Son by Adam Silvera

Okay so this one has already been released, but it was indeed a 2020 release that I highly anticipated so it well deserves its spot on this list. Furthermore, I haven’t picked it up yet because I have actually decided to go on a book buying ban! I’m getting one last Owlcrate this month, and after that, I won’t be buying any books for… I guess as long as I can. I’m trying to save up money, and I already have tons of books at home. In addition to that, I can also get books from work if I return them undamaged, and from the library. (Ich schaffe das!) ANYWAY. I haven’t read a book by Adam Silvera in a while, but I loved what I saw and I cannot wait to see what new universe he crafted!


And that’s it for today! Thank you so much for reading, and please feel free to share some of your anticipated releases for the year!
