Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is: Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020.


1. One of Us is Next (One of Us is Lying #2) by Karen M. McManus – January 7, 2020. I loved One of us is Lying and I’m hoping this is just as enjoyable.


2. Lucky Caller by Emma Mills – January 14, 2020. Emma Mills is my favorite YA author and I’ve heard good things about this one so far.


3. You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen – March 3, 2020. I loved The Wife Between Us, but was not super impressed with their second book. I’m hoping this one recaptures the magic of their first book.

4. The Honey-Don’t List by Christina Lauren – March 24, 2020. I’ve enjoyed most of this author duo’s last several books and I have high hopes for this one.


5. Little Secrets by Jennifer Hillier – April 21, 2020. I really loved Jar of Hearts and have been anxiously waiting for Hillier’s next book.


6. The Split by Sharon Bolton – April 28, 2020. If Sharon Bolton writes it, I want to read it.

7. He Started It by Samantha Downing – April 28, 2020.  I was so impressed with My Lovely Wife and I have been waiting for Downing’s next book! I also found out she’s coming to the area on book tour for this one and I have already registered for it!


8. The Switch by Beth O’Leary – April 30, 2020. The Flatshare was one of my favorite books of 2019 and I’m hoping this one will be a favorite of 2020.

9. My Calamity Jane (The Lady Janies #3) by The Lady Janies –  June 2, 2020. My Lady Jane is one of my all time favorite books, but My Plain Jane left me tremendously disappointed. I’m cautiously optimistic for the third book in the series.

10.  The Heir Affair (The Royal We #2) by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan – June 16, 2020. The Royal We was a surprise hit for me and I was so excited to find out there was going to be a sequel.

What books are you looking forward to in the first half of 2020?

  1. I just got an earc of Little Secrets and cannot wait to dive in! Glad to see it making people’s lists this week because I’m sure it’s going to be a solid read! I also hadn’t seen that Beth had another book coming out! I just read The Flatshare in December so I’ll have to keep my eyes out for The Switch! I wish you luck in getting all these titles read in 2020!!

    If you’d like to see my selections this week feel free to check them out here:

  2. I feel dumb. I did not know One of Us is Lying was going to have a sequel! I still need to read the first book. It’s on my shelves but I still haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. ): Lucky Caller has a gorgeous cover! It sounds really good as well so I added it to my TBR. I still have to read a book by Emma. I am also beyond excited for The Switch. The cover is gorgeous and the plot sounds amazing. I included that one on my list as well! I hope to get it as soon as it comes out! (if I have the money for it, tehehe).

    • Well, now you can binge both of the One of Us is Lying books and have no long wait for the sequel! Mills always has the best covers – although I have to admit this one is my least favorite of hers. And they’re re-doing all the old covers to match the style of this one, which makes me sad. I plan on utilizing the library for most of these because I’m generally pretty cheap haha. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. The Honey-Don’t List and My Calamity Jane both made my list as well! And I just picked up One of Us is Lying, so I’m excited to see what all the buzz is about! 🙂
