Most Anticipated Releases of 2020: April to June

Well, I have to say, this was not how I expected spring would start out. It’s strange and uncertain times out there, but at least there are plenty of Science Fiction and Fantasy books to look forward to in the months ahead. That said, while putting this post together I did notice a lot of books have had their release dates pushed back, so it’s possible the info in this list might not be accurate or might still change in the future.

Still, my TBR is packed (especially my April!) and I’m under no illusions that I’ll be able to read everything here, but hopefully I will be able to get to most of them (and also put some new books on people’s radars)!

So what are your most anticipated releases for the second quarter of 2020?

  1. Well, you pretty much nailed everything! I’d add Firewalkers by Tchaikovsky in may, but otherwise… And yeah, April looks a wee bit crowded, but um. Good luck? Absolute faith in you!


  2. I love these lists! So much to look forward to. I really enjoyed The Book of Koli. And I will absolutely be picking up Network Effect, though I need to read Exit Strategy first. The Southern Book Club sounds like such a fun book, I’d like to try that. And so many others! 🙂


  3. Awesome list, and we have many of the same books listed. April is so out of control, how did that happen? And then I went to check out my June review books and it’s just as bad!


  4. Thank goodness we still have good books huh? I want to read Deeplight and The Girl in the Stars this month. Hope my reading streak continues as there are a lot of good looking books here.


  5. So many good books to look forward to. I love these posts where I can see all the forthcoming books – although it is a bit daunting too. Especially has my reading has been so dire. I’m determined to catch up though.

  6. Looking forward to starting The Kingdom of Liars this month, heard good things! Also need to find time to dive into Alphabet Squadron, I’ve been really falling down on my Star Wars reads. Super excited for Angel of the Crows!

  8. There are some fantastic sounding books here! I’m really interested in The Southern Book Club’s Guide… it sounds really interesting and I miss the amount of vampire fiction that I used to read.Incendiary and the Obsidian Tower sound incredible too and I’m seriously interested in Mexican Gothic as well – I think it’s partially the blurb, partially the title and partially the stunning cover :L
