14 Book Releases Hitting the Shelves in June 2020

The world may still be a little chaotic, but we are getting blessed with so many amazing new books hitting the shelves this June! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been wanting to buy ALL the books despite reading basically NONE of them.

Now more than ever, authors need our support as the publishing industry has been severely impacted by event and convention cancellations. If you see any books that look interesting, I encourage you to talk about them on your socials, add to Goodreads shelves, submit requests to your libraries if you have one, or buy if you’re financially able!

Book Releases You Might Have Missed Due to Quarantine (March-May)

The rapid spread of COVID-19 and quarantine efforts globally have greatly impacted many industries, but especially the publishing industry. It’s difficult enough in the best of times for authors to break through the midlist, especially debut and/or authors of color who often times do not get any marketing support from publishers. But throw a global pandemic into the mix and there’s a whole new array of barriers!

The publishing industry already releaseses so many new books every month that I will not have enough hours in my lifetime to read everything I want to *sob*. I’m worried the books released in the last couple of months that didn’t get delayed will be lost in the hubub when the industry picks up again and focuses on their upcoming releases. So I’ve put together a Big Anticipated Reads list with all of the books you may have missed during quarantine!

Here are 14 Anticipated Reads for January 2020

This post is late and it is the fault of all the amazing releases coming out in January! Literally the two times I have gotten prepared to write this post, another January title called to me and I decided it would be more fun to read it. Oops?

We are starting 2020 off with a bang and we’re sure to not climb out from our TBR Mountains anytime soon. I narrowed my initial list of 24 shiny releases for January down to 14; January 7th and 21st will prove to be TBR ruining. Hold on to your wallets, friends!

Here are 7 Anticipated Reads for November & December 2019

The year is winding down and Publishing”s Assault on My Bank Account Balance is finally beginning to wane. Which is good, because I just made the appalling revelation that 2/3 of the books on my shelves I haven’t read yet. Expect a shame post on this at some point once I get my motivation to actually write posts.

As there aren’t many November and December releases, I decided to combine the rest of the year into this edition of Anticipated Reads. It is almost as if everyone is leaving December to the Children of Blood and Bone follow-up, but I’ll take it as I have a lot of reading to do!
