Whew! 2019 is almost over! I cannot believe that this is the end of a decade! I’m excited for whatever 2020 will bring and that definitely includes some of the amazing releases we’re getting. Note that this is not all of the books I’m excited for as there are many, but these are just the few that I can remember and that I found online.

Author: Isabel Allende
Release Date: January 21st
From the New York Times bestselling author of The House of the Spirits comes an epic novel spanning decades and crossing continents, following two young people as they flee the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War in search of a new place to call home.
I’ve been super interested in all book that take place during or after the Spanish Civil War. The Francoist regime and it’s tribulations is such an interesting and little talked about time in history. Not to mention that Isabel Allende is world renowned and I have loved some of her previous works

House of Earth and Blood

House of Earth and Blood: the story of half-Fae and half-human Bryce Quinlan as she seeks revenge in a contemporary fantasy world of magic, danger, and searing romance.
This is Sarah J. Maas’ new series. It’s supposed to be adult, and I’m excited to see what she does with a new story and new characters.
It has angels and demons which is not something that has ever really called to me, but I’m interested to see what Sarah does with a new setting and time period, at least compared to her previous books.
