2020 is shaping up to be a really good year for new YA releases and I’m desperately looking forward to some of them. Since we’re over a week into January now, I thought I’d share with you a few of the new books I’m interested in reading! They aren’t in any particular order, so let’s get to it.
This is the new Hunger Games prequel that Suzanne Collins is writing and its set to release in May. I’m really excited to give it a go, since I read the whole original trilogy last year and loved it. I think this is a book that has the potential to go very, very wrong, but it could also be brilliant and I want to remain optimistic and see how it turns out.
I read the first book in this series, Spin the Dawn, last year and while it didn’t live up to the hype for me, I really want to know how the story ends, because we were left on a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of the last book. So I’m definitely going to be reading this book as soon as I can get my hands on it.
I’d never heard of this book or this author until I was scrolling through a Goodreads list of 2020 releases. It seems this book was originally published in 2012, but a second, updated, edition is being published this year. I think its a retelling of The Goose Girl and it looks really good! I look forward to reading it as soon as its republished.
I’ve loved Rebecca Ross’s previous two books (The Queen’s Rising and The Queen’s Resistance) and this one sounds exactly like my cup of tea, sisters and murder and intrigue. All my favourite things 😀
I read A Crown of Coral and Pearl a few weeks ago and I loved it, so I’m looking forward to the sequel. CoCaP is an underated YA fantasy that I got out from the library on a whim, because the cover looked nice. It was full of court mystery and death and mythology, as well as great worldbuilding. I definitely think more people should know about it.
Do you guys keep up with the new releases? What books (new releases or not) are you looking forward to reading this book? What’s your opinion on prequels?
