by Jia

Happy New Year! I hope this year (and decade) brings you joy, success, happiness and peace. And lots of books! For my first post of the year, I wanted to share my most anticipated releases. It’s a long list, but since my Goodreads Challenge for 2020 is 200 (maybe more) books, I think it’s justified lol. Enjoy!

  • You Exist Too Much by Zaina Arafat (June 9th)

Honorable Mentions:

I’ve already read these books through ARCs, so I didn’t want to add them to my list of books I’ve yet to read but still wanted to mention them.

My Most Anticipated Book of 2020:

  • Against the Loveless World by Susan Abulhawa (August 25th)

Are any of these titles already on your TBR for 2020? Did you discover any new titles? And are there any titles you think I should be looking forward to? Let me know!

Happy New Year!

THERE’S SO MANY GOOD TITLES IN THIS LIST!!! I didn’t know Kiera Cass is releasing a new series and it actually sounds interesting.

And happy new year to you too, Jia! Good luck with the challenge!
