Each month, we’ll be putting together a list of our top most anticipated releases; from romance, to sci-fi, to fantasy, and everything in between. These releases might be ones we’re counting down the days for or ones we’ve already read and want you to read (and love!), too.
What you do need to bear in mind is that living on different continents we have different release dates. So as a general rule there might be some repeats from one month to the next.. it’s not that we’re just being weird. Though we can’t dismiss that totally out of turn.
For February, our hotly anticipated titles, in chronological order, are :
AN EVERYDAY HERO by Laura Trentham is the second in her Heart of a Hero series. This is a complete standalone and with unconnected characters from book one but it was a fantastic continuation of the theme of soldiers now home, learning to live life as a civilian again. This great military romance releases on February 4, 2020.
YES NO MAYBE SO by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saaed is a politically immersed YA set around elections, canvassing and has a real feel of current climates. The main characters are Muslim and Jewish with lots of cuteness thrown in. It releases on February 4, 2020 and we have a review in the pipeline for this.
THE KING OF CROWS is the fourth book in the Diviners series by Libba Bray. We don’t even want to post the synopsis of this one, being the final in a series, but we know this is much anticipated and fans have been (im)patiently waiting for this conclusion. Grabby hands can get grabby on February 4, 2020.
If you are ready for a retelling with a fresh take then look no further than THE STARS WE STEAL by Alexa Donne. This book is a twist on Persuasion, set in space and with a fleet of ships. There’s royalty, crime and love on the menu and this also releases on February 4, 2020.
GROWN UPS by Marian Keyes is a family-centric tale with relatable drama told in that special, funny way that only this author can. Expect the serious along with the funny and you won’t be disappointed in this women’s fiction offering. Grown Ups releases on February 6, 2020.
This YA contemporary sneaked along with some unique themes. WHAT KIND OF GIRL by Alyssa B Sheinmel addresses the issue of dating abuse in this age group. It was a compelling read and Micky really found it enjoyable despite the subject area. If you enjoy a serious YA, then check out this release on February 6, 2020.
THE MERCIES by Kiran Millwood Hargrave is a historical and fantastical tale set in Norway in the 1600s. This is a story about feminism, oppression and a literal witch hunt. We couldn’t be more excited for it on February 6, 2020.
BOOK OF ORLANDO by Laura Lascarso is the first in a paranormal trilogy about angels, devils, and so much more. It’s a little dark, a whole lot queer, and hot as hell. You definitely need this one on your radar and on February 7, 2020, you can get it on your kindle, too!
