8 Anticipated Reads Hitting the Shelves in November & December 2020

I can’t believe it’s almost November and time for another edition of Anticipated Reads! Just like last year, November and December are a bit on the lighter side release-wise so I’ve combined them into this post. (I’d recommending getting your pre-orders in for these early, especially for gifts, because of supply-chain issues relating to COVID-19.)

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!

πŸ“ In case you are wondering how I manage to keep track of upcoming releases and choose the books I’m excited to highlight monthly, check out my Edelweiss 2.0 Guide!

14 Book Releases Hitting the Shelves in October 2020

It’s been a few months since I’ve done an Anticipated Reads list, and I have to admit that it’s nice to be back! However, before going through the upcoming releases on Edelweiss I only had two anticipated books for October… and now it’s 14. Oops. I personally look forward to buy ALL the books despite reading basically NONE of them. I am not responsible for overflowing TBRs as a result of this post.

Book Haul for April // I’ve started buying books on eBay in the middle of the night

I don’t know about you, but quarantine is getting to me and I’ve started buying books on eBay in the middle of the night. Because what else do you do after 80 days of not being around anyone but your cat? Whatever we need to cope in these wild times, I guess.

As always, I want to reiterate that you do not need to buy and own a lot of books in order to be considered a book blogger or lover. I am quite frugal with everything else so that I can buy books because I love them, but I do not ever want to make you feel bad if you cannot afford to buy books or have poor access where you live.
