It’s a new year and with a new year comes new releases. We are all always excited for the new book releases right? As a literary blogger, it is my solemn duty to enlighten you on books coming out and in that spirit, here are some of my anticipated releases for the new year.

The Conference of The birds- Ransom Riggs

Expected release date -14 January 2020

“Do you trust me?”

An instant bestseller, A map of Days launched readers into the previously unexplored world of American peculiars, one bursting with new questions, new allies, and new adversaries

Now with enemies behind him and the unknown ahead, Jacob Portman’s story continues as he takes a brave leap forward into the Conference of the Birds, the next instalment of the beloved, bestselling Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children series

Okay, I have all 4 books in the peculiar series and I can genuinely say that I am a fan.

Okay, so this might be children’s book but i’ll go to the bookstore and pretend I have a niece. However, the book seems to be out in some places but it isn’t out on Amazon so I will assume it isn’t.

Love her or lose her- Tessa Bailey

Expected Release Date: 14 January 2020

When her girlfriends encourage Rosie to demand more out of her life and pursue her dream of opening a restaurant, she decides to demand more out of love too

Sitting on pillows ? Communing with nature ? Leaning Love languages? Nope. But to her surprise, he’s all in, and it forces her to admit her own role in their cracked foundation. As they complete one ridiculous- yet surprisingly helpful- assignment after another, their remodeled relationship gets stronger than ever.
