Most Anticipated Releases of 2020: January to March

Happy 2020! As we get ready to begin another year, it’s time to look ahead to the Science Fiction and Fantasy reads I’m most excited about. Not only is it fun to organize my reading and to make lists, they also have the added benefit of focusing my attention to the highly anticipated releases that I’d like to check out. Every quarter I’ll be putting together a post of my “must reads”, and while I’m under no illusions that I’ll be able to read them all, hopefully I can get to most of them (and also put some new books on people’s radars)!

  1. Alone in the Wild, The Vanishing Deep, Girls With Razor Hearts… those three I’m really looking forward to. Love that cover of Mr. Nobody too!


  2. The Bard’s Blade cover reminds me a lot of Dark Blade by Steve Feasey

    ooh, another book by Silvia Moreno-Garcia?? I wish it was fantasy, but still, how intriguing

    and I have an ARC of The Unspoken Name, but will I actually read it before pub date? HMMM

    The Deep looks really cool!


  3. Great List – I love seeing all these books lined up like this – it gives me complete grabby hands and book envy of course but I still can’t resist a good line up.
    Currently reading God Game and loving it. The Shadow Saint is next up.
    Lynn 😀


    • Yeah, I love seeing all the books laid out like this too – gives me a feeling of excitement and panic at the same time, lol. Excited that there are so many books to look forward to, but freaking out because I know I’ll never have enough time!

  4. I’m now doing my lists quarterly as well, it just makes more sense! We have so many in common, of course. It’s going to be hard to pick and choose this year because there are just so many books I want to read:-)


    • Yeah, I’ve long given up trying to whittle my lists down to ten, fifteen, or even twenty books, lol. Doing it quarterly allows me to feature more books because let’s face it, there are always so many to look forward to! 😀


  5. Chosen is on my list as well and I have spotted one or two (or three or…) covers here that are drool worthy and make my thumb twitch to one click LOL


  6. Almost too many to choose from here. Some I’d have to put aside for later until I read previous books in the series. But there’s plenty of first books and stand alones here, too. The Bard’s Blade is one I’m very interested in.


    • I can’t wait to read my copy of The Night Country!! And I’m really interested in The God Game and The Vanishing Deep too. I still need to read the first books to a lot of the series but there are definitely a few here that I hope to catch up on this year. And I’m definitely looking up The Return in a minute – the cover really caught my eye for some reason.
