Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020


"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".

It is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.

Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020

I'm not necessarily waiting for a certain next book unless it's a sequel. That's especially difficult with German ones since here books first get published in hardback and only years later (at least it seems like it) in paperback.

Anyway, I have checked out recommendations on Goodreads and also looked out for new books by some of my favourite living authors and come up with the following list. Some of the books might not appear this next half of the year but they are about to be published.
Abulhawa, Susan "Against the Loveless World"

Follett, Ken "The Evening and the Morning" (prequel to "The Pillars of the Earth")

Hansen, D├Ârte "Mittagsstunde", out in hb, waiting for pb

Lawson, Mary "Before the Snow"

Oates, Joyce Carol "Night. Sleep. Death. The Stars."

Osman, Richard "The Thursday Murder Club"

Pamuk, Orhan "The Naive and the Sentimental Novelist"

 Weir, Alison "Katheryn Howard: The Tainted Queen"

These are some of the books that will appear soon. There are lots of authors where I would love to read a new book … if only they would write one.

    1. Thank you so much, Lydia, I just noticed and fixed it. But so grateful for your heads up.
      I love Edward Rutherfurd (as you can see, he has his own link on my page ­čśë) and can't wait to read his next book.

      Thanks for your visit and thanks for your link, I'm going to go there now.

    1. Have you read those about the other queens? It's a great series. You will find all my reviews if you click on her name.

      Thanks for your visit and for leaving your link. Will go and see your list now.

    1. Honestly, I didn't check how long the books are. I love long books. I always say, the longer, the better. But I cansee how a lot of people would not like to tackle it. She is a great author, though, so I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    1. I'm sure I will read most of them as soon as they're out. They are all favourite authors of mine, except for Richard Osman. This is his first book but I know him from British TV and he is a great guy. I'm sure it's a pleasure to read his book.

      Thanks for your vist. Thanks for your link.

    1. I'd be surprised if they weren't. Some great authors. I've enjoyed all of their books so far, well, except for Richard Osman but he's a great guy.


      Thank you for visiting.

  7. ooh, some great authors! Weir, Rutherfurd, Pamuk, Follett, Oates.
    I didn't realize this was actually the prequel to the Pillars of the Earth! And I just saw The Thursday Murder Club on another list.

    1. Some of my all time favourite authors.

      I didn't know there would be a prequel to the "Pillars of the Earth", either, only found that out when I checked whether some of my favourite authors had written a new book.

      Should be a great read.

      Thanks for your visit.

    1. Funny you should say that about JCO. I just checked and it's over €30 here. I'll wait a little. ;) But I will read it, that's for sure.

      Rutherfurd is always great. I still have two on my TBR pile that I will hopefully be able to tackle soon but I'll get the China one as soon as it's out.

      Can't wait for the new one by Mary Lawson to come out. It's been ages since she wrote her last one.

  9. Your last statement would make a really good TTT topic on it's own!
