Anticipated Releases for (the end of) 2019 & 2020

Hi all!

This post is probably coming a little bit early, but if there’s one thing I love, it’s finding anticipated books, becoming hyper-fixated on them to the point that I become obsessed with finding an ARC, don’t get one and cry over all the bloggers that do ……. anyway.

I’m ridiculously excited about the books in this post and wanted to shout about them to you, so you can discover them too! Let me know which ones you’re excited for as well!
