20 Book Releases of 2020

20 Most Anticipated Book Releases of 2020 (And 120+ More!) (Recommendation Station)

I feel like every year, there are just more and more new releases that I’m dying to read.

2020 has some impressive books lined up, and I would love to talk about all of them, but that would take days. Instead, I’ve decided to highlight my 20 most anticipated 2020 releases, and throw in an extra 140 amazing releases separated in lists so that you can check all of them out on your own!

Speaking of separate lists- I tried to organize these… somewhat. There are 4 different sections of releases:
New Series– the book is the first in a soon-to-be series
Sequels & Prequels– the book is a continuation of a series that has at least one book in it already
Standalones– the book has little to no affiliation with a series and can be read alone
The Untitled Section– can include any of those types of books above, but all of these books don’t have titles. I don’t know why I felt that needed a category, but I wanted to make one.

September Favorites + October TBR

September Favorites + My October TBR!

September was a rough month. The semester started, I picked up more work hours, and I was trying to make two new cosplays for NYCC. That said, I still reached my quota of 10 books! (Barely, but it counts).

Hopefully, things will calm down a little now that the convention is over and the semester is in full swing. Although I did just get cast in a play, so maybe more free time isn’t exactly a realistic goal?

Either way, I wanted to talk about some of my favorite books that helped me survive the insanity that was September, and some of the books I plan to get to this month.

Read more to see my favorite reads of last month, and the books I’m hoping to love in October!
