Top Ten Tuesday: The most anticipated books in 2020

Welcome to this week’s edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is the most anticipated books still to be released in the second half of 2020. I admit I will cheat a little as one book won’t make it to publication until January but…it’s a favorite author and soooo close to the theme.

Jane Harper, one of my favorites, has a new book on the horizon titled The Survivors.  I have enjoyed her previous three books very much so I am eager to get my hands on this book.  So eager in fact that I preordered the book from Waterstones in London.  How sweet to get the English printed version in January 2021. (yeah, not this year)


Tana French.  Just her name makes me stop and pay attention.  Is she writing a new book, I wonder?  The answer is YES!  It’s called The Searcher and in spite of my lukewarm review of her last book, The Witch Elm, I will buy anything she writes as she is such an excellent author.


Santa Montefiore has a new book coming out titled Here and Now. Check it out on her website HERE.  This is scheduled for release in the UK July 9, 2020.  I’ve enjoyed all three books in The Devrill Chronicles as well as the Beekeeper’s Daughter and Secrets of the Lighthouse. Who knows when I’ll have chance to purchase it here. Of course I could order it through Waterstones as I did Jane Harper’s new book. Just a thought.


Robert Galbraith’s next book Troubled Blood takes us back to the Cormoran Strike series.  I love a series and this one was great.  I’m looking forward to more mystery, detective work and I hope if she (J.K. Rowling) plans to ever get Strike and Robin together she’ll wait until the last book.  I’m loving the detective work and chemistry here.


SkinnyTaste: Meal Prep by Gina Hololka.  I love her other cookbooks and this one will certainly give me loads of new ideas. Nigella Lawson’s upcoming book, Cook, Eat, Repeat is scheduled out in October.  From the TV show, Friends: an official cookbook  with Chandler’s “Milk you can Chew”, Phoebe’s grandmother’s cookies and more character inspired recipes.  Looks like it will be fun to read as well as cook from.

Is This Anything by Jerry Seinfeld looks like a fun read.  I always liked the show Seinfeld and right now, we could all use a few laughs.


The House of Correction by Nicci French.  I liked the Frieda Klein series by this husband/wife author team. The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult.

Those are my top 10 books I am hoping to get and read these upcoming months. Looking forward to linking up with the Top Ten this week (my first time).

Sharing with Joy for British Isles Friday for the five British author releases.

  1. I’m really looking forward to the new Robert Galbraith! I’ve been enjoying that series so much. And I really liked Jane Harper’s first book, so I should definitely make sure to read more by her. So many great books!

    • Lisa, I am also looking forward to more Cormoran! The Jane Harper books are great if you get a chance to grab those. I liked the first book The Dry better than the followup and the third book was a good family drama/mystery. You are immersed in the Australian outback in that one.

      Thanks for visiting.


  2. So I wish I would have visited here before I ordered a birthday present for my bestie. I can’t wait for Nigella’s and for Picoult’s latest! Thanks for the heads up!
