Great list! Meat Cute and When We Were Magic made my list this week, too. I’m intrigued by The Ghosts of Sherwood – there seem to have been a lot of Robin Hood reimaginings lately, it must be the new retelling trend!
Interesting about Robin Hood! It’s not a story I’d necessarily seek out, but I do love Carrie Vaughn’s writing and I’m interested to see her spin on the story!
I’m really curious about the new Suzanne Collins; that’s one I definitely need to read. I also want to read When We Were Magic and Malorie since I loved Bird Box.
I’m actually a bit on the fence on the Suzanne Collins book — I feel like Hunger Games’s time has come and gone, but I was very into it when it came out, so I’m curious to see if this new book really adds to that world.
Oh! I haven’t heard of many of these! I’ll check into them. Jane Austen Society IS on my Tbr. Good post.
Thanks! Jane Austen Society really sounds enjoyable — I’m looking forward to it!
I love this list, and I hadn’t seen Meat Cute yet! The Book of Koli is probably my most anticipated book of the year, also Alma Katsu’s The Deep😁
So many good books coming up!
Ooh yas, I’m so excited to see someone else add the Jane Austen Society onto their list. It was on mine today too 🙂 Seeing Parable of the Sower on here also reminds me that I need to finally read it before the pub date! Great list, I hope you enjoy all of these!
I love Parable of the Sower, really interested to see how a graphic novel version turns out. Enjoy!
There’s no such thing as too many book lists, Lisa. ;0 Thanks for sharing and happy reading!
Ha, true – can’t have too many books lists OR too many books!
You’re right about that!
Hmmm… you’ve drawn a curiosity for me with “The Jane Austen Society” — I wonder what that one is about!? I decided to focus on my Non-Fiction Reads for the first half of 2020 as I haven’t had the chance to finish compiling the fiction releases that are coming out right now… hmm…curious!
I think it’s supposed to be historical fiction — sounded great to me when I first came across it!
So many goods to come! I can’t wait to see what will happen in the new hunger games book!
Ooh, yes, I’m so curious about that one!
Lots of great books on this list!!
It’ll be hard to keep up with all the great books coming in 2020!
Honestly, I think we’re all looking forward to the Hunger Games prequel. I hope this means there will be tons of reviews on it on TTT blogs. 🙂
My TTT .
I’m a little hesitant about it, to be honest — it’s been enough years that I feel like I”m not entirely sure if I want to go back to that world. But, I’m sure it’ll be great!
I am really curious to see what reviewers think of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. I haven’t thought of the Hunger Games world in a while. Happy reading!
Same here — I’m not 100% sure that I really want to go back to that world, but still, I doubt I’ll be able to resist. 🙂
I’m super excited for the new Hunger Games book too. I need to reread the trilogy first. It’s been so many years since I read it that I don’t remember much about the world.
Oh, good point. A re-read might be necessary!
I did not know a new Hunger Games novel is coming out. Just pre-ordered it. Great list. Enjoy.
Thanks! The Hunger Games book is a prequel, but it should be really interesting!
Great list, I hope you enjoy the books!
Here’s my TTT
Great list! I’m excited and nervous about Suzanne Collins new one. 🙂
I feel exactly the same!
