2020 Debuts on my TBR! Pt. 1

This is by no means a comprehensive list and I’m only featuring books that already have covers. So you know I’m missing out on a ton for the second half of the year, but you know what that means….another post then about those books!

Woven in Moonlight – Jan. 7th

Woven in Moonlight is a story about revenge, but not in the conventional sense. When we are motivated by our thirst for vengeance, what happens when we realize that the fuel we hold in our heart only has the possibility to burn our home down? I’ve been reading a lot of books about characters motivated by their pursuit of revenge, but Woven in Moonlight is a vastly different creature. Grounded both in magic, but also colonialization, this ownvoices Bolivian fantasy is a story that examines the truth, what light we see ourselves and our enemies in.

Foul is Fair – Feb 4th

Foul is Fair is a five star re-telling for sure! It’s a bloody story of revenge. Of girls having enough. Being told to be silent. And having the justice system fail. I fell in love with Foul is Fair from page one. It starts with a scene of revenge, black box hair dye, and the claws we put on in the morning.

The Sound of Stars – Feb 25th

Can a girl who risks her life for books and an alien who loves forbidden pop music work together to save humanity? This road trip is truly out of this world! A beautiful and thrilling read for fans of Marie Lu and Veronica Roth.

I’m currently reading this one and I really like it so far! I can’t wait to finish!

The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly – May 5th

Moxie meets A Knight’s Tale as Kit Sweetly slays sexism, bad bosses, and bad luck to become a knight at a medieval-themed restaurant.

The Henna Wars – May 12th

When Dimple Met Rishi meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this rom com about two teen girls with rival henna businesses.

The Gilded Ones – May 26th

The start of a bold and immersive West African-inspired, feminist fantasy series for fans of Children of Blood and Bone and Black Panther. In this world, girls are outcasts by blood and warriors by choice.


What debuts are you excited for in 2020?

  1. Woven in Moonlight is on my TBR. The Henna Wars sounds adorable as well (this coming from somebody who doesn’t read contemporary YA and abhors romance!!). I just preodred Dark and Deepest Red, so that’s currently my main anticipated read 🙂

  2. There are so many excellent books coming out in 2020 and it looks like it’s going to be a great year for diverse books <3 I love the sound of Woven in Moonlight, especially as its ownvoices Bolivian and I don't think I've ever read anything by a Bolivian author before, plus the cover is beautiful. The Sound of the Stars is also on my list and I have a bunch of others that I'm hoping to make a post about soon when I am less tired!
