Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020 (#74)

Well, dang. 2020 is really here, huh? And... a lot is happening in the world. If you're getting your fill of the news, absorbing and learning through it, and are in need of an escape: 2020 has you covered. Here are some of my most anticipated book releases for the first half of 2020. Because nothing says escapism like a good book.

For those of you who are new to my blog, or the book blogging community, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, originating over at the Broke and the Bookish, and is exactly what its title hints at. Each week we're given a topic to explore in our entries.  
Cassandra Clare is one of my author ride or dies. AND I've been waiting for Chain of Gold for roughly three hundred years, so. (Seriously though my excitement is cranked up and I'm bounding around.) Meanwhile, I'm kind of cheating with The Hand on the Wall because I'm doing the blog tour and am already reading my ARC of it as of today. So! (Still!!!!!) 

I'm equally excited about both of these for various reasons. I recently got back into the world of Miss Peregrine and I'm revitalized in terms of excitement over the series. I love the spookiness. The Conference of the Birds is hitting me HARD right now for one reason or another. And, as for Whatever it Takes, we all know I'm 100% Krista and Becca Ritchie trash. Thankfully, I'm on tours for BOTH OF THESE BOOKS which is unreal and I'm absolutely crying about it, BRB. 

The Hunger Games is like Harry Potter, Gossip Girl and The Shadowhunter Chronicles books for me: I grew up surrounded by these words and owe the fact that I am a reader to them. (And Lurlene McDaniel and Lois Duncan.) I am still in awe over the fact that we're getting The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes--although, ugh, that cover needs a revamp. The Queen's Assassin sounds SO good. SO good. I'm stoked to be participating in the upcoming blog tour. And Melissa de la Cruz is another ride or die of mine so... *grabby hands*

You Are Not Alone sounds beyond creepily brilliant and fun. I've been fortunate enough to follow the dynamic writing duo that is Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen through all of their releases in ARC form and this one is sure to be a wild ride. Not So Pure and Simple has one of my favourite covers of the year and when I saw it as a BOTM YA pick, I squealed and naturally made it my January pick.

After reading Don't You Forget About Me, I knew I had to look into Mhairi McFarlane more. That book really got me and helped me come to terms with a few thing of my past. I have a feeling If I Never Met You is going to be so lively and fantastic. The Midnight Lie is on my list for obvious reasons: MARIE RUTKOSKI IS BACK, KIDS.
