I’m So Excited – Top 5 Saturday!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, however you decided to celebrate it. 2020 has some truly awesome releases due out and my bank balance is already worried by the amount I have added to my TBR. There are some amazing sounding debuts, books due out by authors I already love and the sequels to some of the book’s I loved from 2019. Because this post is limited to 5 I’ve decided to focus it on 2020 sequels I am most excited for, and even that was hard to narrow down! Are there any sequels you are eagerly anticipating in the new year? Let me know in the comments.

Heart of Flames

I loved Crown of Feathers when I read it earlier in the year. I just couldn’t believe it was a debut novel. The author manages to create a beautiful and intricate world with characters that you cant help but love/hate. I would pretty much sell my soul for an early copy of this, but I’ll just have to pass the time swooning over that gorgeous cover.

Aurora Burning

I am so excited for this release, even if the end of Aurora Rising had me in tears. Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman certainly know how to write a quirky and unique group of character and that was one of the main reasons I fell in love with the story. I’m emotionally preparing myself for this one and the wild ride it’s sure to take me on.

The Silvered Serpents

I literally read The Gilded Wolves in one sitting, I just couldn’t put it down. Everything about the book was mesmerising from the plot, the world Chokshi creates and the lore she feeds you while you read to the characters (hypnos my little baby). I just found out this isnt due out till late next year, and I died a little inside but I’m sure it will be worth the wait.

Empire of Gold

This has become one of my favourite trilogies of all time. You know how much a love a book based around folklore/mythology and Shannon writes an absolutely stunning set of book based all around Djinn, Ifrit and the like. City of Brass was another book I couldn’t believe was a debut (and still can’t) but the books keep getting better and better and I cannot wait to get my hands on the final installment.

Night of the Dragon

Shadow of the Fox blew me away when I first read it and became one of my top reads of 2018, and Soul of the Sword had me on the edge of my seat when I picked it up this year. I know I am not prepared at all for what the final installment will bring I just hope my little cinnamon roll Okame survives! And that Hakaimono and Yumeko get the happy ending they deserve… that’s not too much to ask for right?

So those are my top 5 sequels I’m excited for in 2020. Would any of these make your list? Or are there any you think I might have missed off? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Ahhhh, so much yes to this post! I’m really excited for Night of the Dragon, because i for sure need me some more Hakaimono. But also Okame.

    I REALLY need to read The Daevabad Trilogy. I will forever read books about Djinn. Oh, and Aurora Burning for sure. Kaufman and Kristoff are a deadly writing pair who never fail to destroy my feels. But for some reason I love it? xD

    • Haha Kristoff and Kauffman are like the devil… no matter how much I resist I just keep going back to the dark side 😂.

      And yes, you definitely need to pick up the Daevabad trilogy, the books are amazing. Even if I’m not sure I’m emotionally prepared for the final instalment 😊

      • Pffft, let’s be real: the dark side is where it’s at anyway. xD I never want to leeeeave.

        I’m not sure I’m emotionally prepared for any of it, but I’ve read so many books that have shattered my emotions already in 2019 that I’m not sure I really even need to worry about it, because there’s probably nothing left at this point. xD Authors have thoroughly destroyed me.
