So, here are my most anticipated releases for the second half of 2020.
July & August Releases
August 1 Girl Serpent Thorn is an original fairy tale about a girl cursed to be poisonous to the touch, and who discovers what power might lie in such a curse. Seven is a rich, soulfully written novel about inheritance and resistance that tests the balance between modern and traditional customs.
September 8 I have to gush about the cover for Fable for a second!! I mean come on, this cover is gorgeous. The red hair the red lipstick, the blue eyes with a ship in them. UGH! I can go on forever. Fable welcomes you to a world made dangerous by the sea and by those who wish to profit from it. Where a young girl must find her place and her family while trying to survive in a world built for men. White Ivy is a debut novel about a young woman’s dark obsession with her privileged classmate and the lengths she’ll go to win his love.
October 20 Lara, acts as a guide, confidant, a friend, an outlet, and a support system to anyone who has ever gone through Vagina Problems. Super excited to get this book, as I grew up in Texas and our sex education was lacking, which is an understatement. The Once and Future Witches seems to be a blend of witches and suffragists and feminism, which I am here for it. Tsarina tells the (fictional) story of Catherine Alexeyevna: the first woman to rule Russia in her own right. Plain Bad Heroines is a horror-comedy centered around a cursed New England boarding school for girls. A wickedly whimsical celebration of the art of storytelling, sapphic love, and the rebellious female spirit. I mean what’s not to love.
November & December Releases
December 29 Eartheater is a novel about a young woman whose compulsion to eat earth gives her visions of murdered and missing people. An imaginative synthesis of mystery and magical realism that explores the dark tragedies of ordinary lives. When the Apricots Bloom inspired by the author’s own experiences in Iraq during Saddam Hussein’s rule, Wilkinson’s novel is about the limits of friendship and forgiveness, and the strength of a mother’s love.
Happy Reading Darlings!
