My Most Anticipated Reads of 2020

I don’t think it’s a secret that I’m a bookworm and I love to read. Today I thought I would share my most anticipated reads of 2020 with you.

I love to track my reading on Goodreads so that I have a clear picture of where I’m at in terms of meeting my reading goals. In 2020 I have set myself the goal of reading 50 books in the year. Last year I managed 42 books so it seems manageable. As I’m writing this at the start of March, I have currently read 12 books so I’m on track to meet my goal.

There are lots of exciting books due to come out this year that I can’t wait to read. However I am also trying not to spend my money on books this year, keep your eyes peeled for my Low Buy post (coming soon) for more info on that! So this year I will be utilising any birthday gift cards and my local library to make sure I am up to date with my most anticipated reads of 2020. So without further ado lets get into the books I’m most looking forward to, that are being released this year.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes- Suzanne Collins*

I am so excited for the release of this book because it’s a major throwback to my teenage years. Back in the day I was OBSESSED with The Hunger Games trilogy and I read it so many times. This new release by Suzanne Collins in a prequel to this much beloved series. The novel will follow Coriolanus Snow as he embarks in his role of mentor in the 10th annual Hunger Games, not quite the dictatorial President we know from the Panem in her original trilogy. 14 year old Meg is very excited about this whole thing!

It’s due for release in May 2020

Ghosts- Dolly Alderton *

I am sooooo excited for Dolly Alderton to release her first novel. I absolutely adored her memoir Everything I Know About Love* and recommend it to everyone. I’m really interested to see how she will incorporate her strong writers voice into a fiction piece. Ghosts will follow Nina Dean as she contends with life dramas including being ghosted on dating apps, her father struggling with Dementia and feeling like she is losing her friends.

It’s due for release in October 2020

Olive- Emma Gannon*

The author of The Multi-Hyphen Method* is back with her first novel. Olive sees life a little differently and when her friends are all heading down the path of marriage and children Olive has some tough decisions to make. I’m really excited to read this as I feel like it will reflect some very modern struggles and explore them in a sensitive and creative way.

Olive is due for release in June 2020

All Adults Here- Emma Straub*

Emma Straub isn’t an author I’ve read before, but I must be honest and say I judge a book by it’s cover. This book happened to have a cover I liked and after having a read of the synopsis I decided it is something I would definitely like to read. All Adults Here focusses on Astrid, who following a bus accident, is forced to come to terms with how she parented her (now grown-up) children.

It is due for release in July 2020
