Top Ten Tuesday – Jan. 7 Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020. I couldn’t come up with ten for the first half of the year, or even the whole year. So, instead, here are my top five for 2020.

Smoke Bitten by Patricia Briggs

Release date: March 17, 2020

Format: Hardcover

Preorder: Amazon

This may only be a collection of short stories, but it’s short stories in the Mercy Thompson series, which is a favorite of mine. So, of course, I must have this book.

Age of Death by Michael J Sullivan

Release date: April 28, 2020

Format: Mass Market Paperbound

Preorder: Amazon

Although I haven’t started reading this series yet, if it’s anything like his other books, I’m sure it will be amazing. This will eventually be added to my collection.

The Burning White by Brent Weeks

Release date: August 25, 2020

Format: Trade Paperback

Preorder: Amazon

Much like Age of Death, I haven’t started this series yet but I loved his Night Angel trilogy and I’ve heard great things about this series so I know that I will love it too. This will be added to the collection for later binge reading.

Peace Talks  by Jim Butcher

Ah, every fan of the Dresden Files has been eagerly awaiting this! I’ll be waiting til it’s out in paperback (cuz I don’t buy hardcover books) but it’s good to finally have a release date.

Vampire Knight Memories Vol. 3 by Matsuri Hino

I love Vampire Knight. That’s all I have to say about that lol.
