Most Anticipated June 2020 YA Releases


I checked all these dates on Goodreads, but it’s always possible something changed or will change.  It’s been a bit harder to keep up with release dates, but I think I found quite a few that I think people are going to be excited for.

Most Anticipated April 2020 YA Releases


As always, I can’t include all the releases for the month, but I chose ones that I’m excited for or ones that I think others will be looking forward to.  Dates were taken from Goodreads, so please double check.  They aren’t always right, but they’re usually pretty good.

Most Anticipated 2020 Middle Grade Books


I love middle grade.  I’m not sure why, but I’ve been so impressed by the recent mg releases.  So I thought I would do a most anticipated list for 2020.  I’m not including anything I’ve already read.  These are in no particular order.



Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes by Roshani Chokski

War between the devas and the demons is imminent, and the Otherworld is on high alert. When intelligence from the human world reveals that the Sleeper is holding a powerful clairvoyant and her sister captive, 14-year-old Aru and her friends launch a search-and-rescue mission. The captives, a pair of twins, turn out to be the newest Pandava sisters, though, according to a prophecy, one sister is not true.
During the celebration of Holi, the heavenly attendants stage a massage PR rebranding campaign to convince everyone that the Pandavas are to be trusted. As much as Aru relishes the attention, she fears that she is destined to bring destruction to her sisters, as the Sleeper has predicted. Aru believes that the only way to prove her reputation is to find the Kalpavriksha, the wish-granting tree that came out of the Ocean of Milk when it was churned. If she can reach it before the Sleeper, perhaps she can turn everything around with one wish.
Careful what you wish for, Aru . . .

Most Anticipated 2020 YA Sequels/Series


I decided to do a separate post for sequels since there are quite a few I’m looking forward to.  I did not include anything I’ve already read.  These are in no order.  I also didn’t include anything that might be a book three if I haven’t read book two yet.

A Look Back At My 2019 Most Anticipated and How I Did (plus my new graphic for 2020)


As most of you know, I’m a mod for TBR and Beyond on facebook.  Each year, we’re asked (about 6 weeks before the years end) to list our favorites and our most anticipated.  I thought I would look back and see if I read the books I was so excited for at that time.


These were really in no particular order.  It was hard enough to narrow it down.
