Time for one of those fearful posts that makes you suddenly realise just how many books you should probably hurry up and read. With my health taking a dip recently, it’s really impacted how many of my NetGalley books I’ve been able to tackle, and I also made the mistake of not looking at dates correctly, and accidentally requesting a few books that were already past publishing dates, which are now just hanging over me, nudging me when I put things in date order.
There are some I’ve started reading, but haven’t got around to finishing, and some I just haven’t started yet. Obviously this is accurate at time of writing! So in date order, here we go.

Phew! There’s all 25 books. I’ve got myself on strict orders to read them in date order rather than order of those that might have caught my attention more (just like when you buy a new book and your other books shout WHAT ABOUT ME? Same thing with ARCs), and I’m hoping that I can make it through the rest of those that are yet to be published before their dates. I’ll catch up on the others…. Sometime.
Either way, these are books that I give recommendations on, as they caught my attention enough to be sure I needed to read them! I’m excited about all of them naturally, but The Once and Future Witches is one of the books I am most excited about for 2020, and it is taking alllllll my self control to not just dive headfirst into it. Some of these books are utterly amazing, and I highly recommend looking up any and all that catch your attention. Good luck!
