My Most Anticipated Books of 2020


Happy New Year Friends! With 2019 having drawn to an end, it is time to look forward to what 2020 has in store for avid book lovers! Similar to past years (2017, 2018, 2019), I’ve compiled a list of the top books in 2020 that I’m looking forward to being released.   Quite a few books on the following list might better be classified as wishful thinking, i.e., Winds of Winter, Doors of Stone, Desert Prince, Red Rising #6. Ever the optimist, I couldn’t help but group them in with the rest, along with a few on the radar for 2021. Here’s to a fantastic reading year for all!

Let me know what you think of the titles on my lineup. Have I missed any key books that are on your list?

  1. I will definitely read the Winds of Winter when/if it arrives, but I don’t really get the hang-ups over it. There’s a ton of great fantasy literature out there just waiting to be read, so I can’t say I’m at a loss.

  2. Thank you for your suggestions. I hope you don’t mind but I forwarded your recommendations to my small science fiction reading group with the suggestion they follow your blog themselves. I do write reviews on wenlowdwhispers.wordpress and should any of your recommendations be read and have a positive response I will review it and link to your blog, if you wish.

    • Thanks Wendy! You are too kind for sharing my blog with your science fiction group. Feel free to link any of my posts! Again you are too sweet for the support! Please forward any suggestions my way if you come across any must reads! Happy Reading.


  3. I’ve heard mixed reviews of a song of ballads… but I’m still going to read it anyway! Sincerely hoping we get Winds if Winter this year. And I certainly need to get around to reading a Jemisin book, it’s long overdue!
