Top 10 Tuesday

T10T: 2020 Releases I NEED Santa to Bring Me

December 24, 2019


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s theme is books we’d like to get for the holidays! Here are a handful of 2020 releases I’m dying to get my hands on. ? To make it easy, I’ve just listed them in chronological order instead of the order I want them most in!


house of earth and blood

march 3rd, 2020
Naturally, as self-admitted SJM trash, I had to put this one on the list. I know she isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and I know she’s certainly not without flaw, but… I still think she writes super fun stories & I have high hopes for this new one!

the bank

april 28th, 2020
This is a release I’ll be surprised to find on many other bloggers’ 2020 radars, tbh, but it doesn’t make me any less eager! Bentley was my intro to “weird” and slightly bizarro horror as a kid, so he’s always had a really strange, special place in my heart, and I’m very ready for a new book from him!

aurora burning

may 5th, 2020
Look at the grouchy space elf teddy bear! Just LOOK at him. ? I am soooo freaking ready to get back to Squad 312. I think I’ll even do a reread of the first book beforehand!

the extraordinaries

may 5th, 2020
Most people would think it doesn’t make any sense to stan an author this hard after only reading a 50-page novella from them and nothing else, but I… am not most people. And I am ridiculously excited for everything T.J. Klune has going on.

the ballad of songbirds and snakes

may 19th, 2020
My entire life since this was announced has just been a nonstop display of incoherent, fangirlish screaming and I don’t think that will change any time soon. When they posted this announcement, I literally went in the bathroom at work and CRIED. I’m so pumped!

dragon unleashed

june 9th, 2020
*whispering* Please please please please please don’t let this get pushed back again…

i’ll be the one

june 16th, 2020
A beautiful fat bisexual Korean-American girl on the cover of a cute-ass contemporary novel. I… I really don’t have words for how much I need this. It looks amazing.

june 23rd, 2020
I’ve had a little time to think on it, and I feel comfortable in officially calling Get a Life, Chloe Brown my single #1 fave of 2019, so it only stands to reason that the second book in the series would be one of my absolute top-most anticipated releases of 2020!

empire of the vampire

september 3rd, 2020
Anyone who knows me knows I adore Jay Kristoff, so it’s no wonder this is one of my most anticipated releases of 2020… but it’s more than that, because something in my gut tells me, I swear, this is going to be my favorite Jay Kristoff release yet. I don’t know why, I just FEEL IT IN MY BONES.

kingdom of the wicked

september 24th, 2020
I really can’t believe we’re already being blessed with another series from Kerri Maniscalco. ??? And you just know it’s going to have a gorgeous cover…


What are the 2020 titles you most wish you could find under your tree?

    Aurora Burning does look interesting!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    I am also so excited for Sarah J. Maas’s new story! The cover is so beautiful. I loved Throne of Glass but didn’t like were the series was heading after book 2 so I ended up DNFing the series. But ACOTAR was amazing and I still love those books so freaking much. I hope this next she releases steals my heart <3

      I’m sorry to hear you weren’t into the rest of the TOG series, but I hope her new book works better for you! 😀

    I hadn’t heard of the actual title of the Hunger Games prequel yet. I love it!

    My TTT.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 31, 2019 at 9:05 pm

      I do, too! A lot of people were picking on it when it was announced because it’s a “trope-y” YA title but I think it’s fun haha. 🙂

  • Reply Davida Chazan December 24, 2019 at 9:49 am

    I hope you get them all! Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays!

  • Reply Tammy December 24, 2019 at 10:23 am

    Aurora Burning and Empire of the Vampire are high on my list as well!?

  • Reply jamsu December 24, 2019 at 11:52 am

    I’m also exited for house of earth and blood. Other books I wish I got for Christmas are Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi, The Sinner by J.R. Ward and Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 31, 2019 at 9:11 pm

      Ooooooh, those all sound so good ? haha I think they’re all books that are further into their respective series than I can start thinking about yet, but soon!

    I hope the Santa of ARCs finds a way to drop at least one of these on your doorstep prior to release day!

    I need Crescent City so badly, I could cry. But I know the odds of snagging an ARC are slim *Sobs*

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 31, 2019 at 10:17 pm

      Oh my gosh, right? :'( You know they’re gonna be SO few and far between, and they’ll probably all be on eBay for like $900 ?

  • Reply dinipandareads January 7, 2020 at 5:03 am

    HUGE yes to Aurora Rising! Ah, that cover is gorgeous and I just can’t wait ?
