Hello, fellow readers! I am already adding books to my 2020 TBR and thought it would be fun to share some of the new releases I am most excited about next year! I did leave off a couple, like Ruth Ware’s new book, because there were not enough details at the time of writing this to include them on the list.
1. Home Before Dark by Riley Sager (July 7)
It is no secret that Riley Sager is one of my favorite authors! I do not know what this book is about because I want to go in knowing as little as possible.
2. Dead to Her by Sarah Pinborough (February 11)
Sarah Pinborough’s novel, Behind Her Eyes, was one of my favorite books in 2019, so I can’t wait to see what she has come up with next!
3. The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James (February 18)
I read The Broken Girls last year and thought St. James did a fantastic job with the creepy setting. I love books and movies about hotels with mysterious pasts, so I have high hopes for this book!
4. The Return by Rachel Harrison (March 24)
This debut novel about a girl who disappears and then suddenly reappears with no memory of where she has been sounds right up my alley! I am hoping this is somewhat supernatural, but I’m intrigued either way.
5. In Five Years by Rebecca Serle (March 3)
I loved The Dinner List by Rebecca Serle because it was based on a game we’ve all played-if you could invite any five people, dead or alive, to have dinner with, who would you invite? In Five Years follows a similar concept because we’ve all been asked, “Where do you see yourself in five years?” I did receive an ARC of this title on Netgalley, and I’m going to have my tissues ready because The Dinner List destroyed me.
6. The Invisible Life of Addie La Rue by V.E. Schwab (release date unknown)
Victoria Schwab is an “auto read” author for me. I am catching up on her backlist, but I have loved everything I’ve read. The only information about this book describes it as a love story between a French girl and the devil over 300 years. Sold!
7. Mr. Nobody by Catherine Steadman (January 7)
This book sounds kind of like The Silent Patient, but I am hoping it is more fast paced and exciting. A psychiatrist is treating a man with no memory and discovers the man knows more about her than himself.
8. Malorie by Josh Malerman (May 19)
The only book by Malerman that I have enjoyed was Bird Box, so when I found out he was writing a sequel, I knew I wanted to give him another chance. I am hoping this book explores what is happening more, but based on some of his other books, I don’t think we will get any answers to those questions.
9. One of Us Is Next by Karen M. McManus (January 7)
I really enjoyed One of Us is Lying last year, and I was excited to learn there is going to be a sequel! YA mystery/thrillers are very hit or miss for me, but I have high hopes for the continuation of this series. The first book in the series was The Breakfast Club meets Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars.
10. You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen (March 3)
One of my favorite thrillers from 2018 was An Anonymous Girl, so I can’t wait to see what this author duo has come up with now! Early reviews say to go in to this one knowing as little as possible, so I don’t really know what this is about and I don’t want to!
