Top 10 Tuesday: Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020

In my quest to find ways to try to get myself into blogging I thought I would participate in this week's Top 10 Tuesday meme as hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. The theme this week is the books you are excited about in the first half of the year. I don't know if I can join in on the topics on a regular basis and I didn't come up with ten books but never mind!!

Here are the top 8 books I'm looking forward to

The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel - The third book in the Wolf Hall series about the life of Thomas Cromwell

The Switch by Beth O'Leary - The Flatshare by this author was my sole 5/5 read in 2019 so I am very much looking forward to this book

Hid From Our Eyes by Julia Spencer Fleming - It has been 7 years since the last instalment in the Rev Clare Fergusson/Russ van Alstyne series which is one which I was well and truly invested in back in the day

The Good Turn by Dervla McTiernan - The next book in the Cormac Reilly crime series set in Galway

The Queen's Bargain by Anne Bishop - Another long wait for this book, this time 9 years. In fact, I'm not sure that I even thought that there would ever by another book in the Black Jewels series but here it is!

Something to Talk About by Rachael Johns - Australian author Rachael Johns has been one of my go to authors for a few years now, and I'm sure that this book won't disappoint

The Land Beyond the Sea by Sharon Kay Penman - Confession time. I have loved so many SKP books but despite that I am actually quite behind on her books. Doesn't stop me being excited about a new one though!!

The Women's Page by Victoria Purman -I really enjoyed the Land Girls and The Last of the Bonegilla Girls by this author. This time the author is focusing on the lives of women in the immediate aftermath of WWII.

What upcoming releases are you excited about?


  1. A new book by the author of The Flatshare? Yes, I think I will find that one.

  2. I loved the Flatshare - didn't know she had a new one coming out. Will definitely look for it. And I adore Anne Bishop.
    Great list!

    1. I am excited at the prospect of the Anne Bishop too. Its been so long since there was a new Black Jewels book

    1. Definitely some books I would recommend!

  4. I am really really behind with Penman, but I have to admit I was excited she had a new book out, too. lol I think it is sad that Anne Bishop is doing that continue a series years later thing. Hopefully it is a good book and worth it!

    1. I don't know whether there were people still asking for Black Jewels books or if she went back there of her own volition

  5. Yes! Dervla McTiernan is an author I've been really loving lately. I can't wait to see what her new one is all about. I read the first book in the Fleming series, but I never continued on. I might have to go back to it ...

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

    1. I am really looking forward to reading the next Cormac Reilly book!

  6. I really enjoyed the dynamics between the two main characters in the Fleming books.
