2020 Book Releases

[ Due to the coronavirus, many book release dates are changing. If you notice a date here is incorrect, please use the form below to let me know! I will try to keep it updated as much as I can. ]

I’ve had some requests to see my 2020 releases spreadsheet, so here’s a link!

Note: This sheet is for my personal use, so it only shows books that I personally am interested in. Also, columns E-H are just to document if I bought/read a book, special editions, and preorder incentives, which means they might not be relevant to you. Feel free to copy the sheet and use it yourself, or just use it as a reference! I’ll be updating mine every month.

On this page, I’m compiling all the 2020 book releases on my radar. I’ll try to keep it updated throughout the year as more books are announced, but the publishing world is big and I might not know about every book. If you don’t see a book on this list, fill out the form below so I can add it to the list!

If you’re looking for more details on these books, I’ve included their goodreads links (if they have one). Also, I have a separate post on my blog discussing 20 of my favorite releases coming out in 2020!

I also have a short list of some 2021 books I’m already excited to read, at the end of the 2020 list!

Books are split into 3 categories:
New Series – These are the first books in a new series
Sequels & Prequels – These books are continuations of a series with at least one installment already published
Standalones – These books are not a part of a previously published series

All books are organized by release date.

Don’t see a book on this list? Fill out the form below and I’ll be sure to add it!
