MOST ANTICIPATED READS IN 2020 — JULY TO DECEMBER

Even with half the year behind us, and so many books already read, there are still so many books still to come for 2020!

We would like to preface this with a note that these release dates are, of course, subject to change. Particularly in 2020 when release dates are being bounced back, then brought forward, with little to no notice. Also you’ll note in some cases we have indicated a specific country next to a title. This might mean it’s lagged release, ie, already out in the US but now released in the UK, or available everywhere but the US, and doesn’t make the release date wrong. However we did not duplicate titles to indicate multiple release dates. Just something to keep in mind!
