Most Anticipated Releases in January

It’s just a few days left for the new year to begin and it’s time to feel optimistic, hoping that the next one will be better than the year gone by. And as a reader, my first point of happiness is that there are soooooo many amazing books releasing this January and I’m so excited to share them all with you.



The next installment in the delightful Invisible Library series will be here soon and I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoyed reading it. This has a fantastic heist plot and I think everyone is gonna be thoroughly entertained.


The third installment in my favorite cozy mystery series, I already finished reading the ARC of The Book of Candlelight because it was a cold and rainy winter day, and I couldn’t think of anything better than curling up with this one. Definitely worth a read this season.

You Too?

This is a collection of essays by many YA authors inspired by the #MeToo movement, sharing their own experiences from when they were young. I’m on the blog tour and currently reading through it slowly because it’s an important read but also quite tough.


Heated Rivalry was one of my favorite romances of this year, so I’m very interested to know how this new book will turn out to be. We only have one hockey playing MC this time, but I hope it’ll still be equally fun and Carina Press always makes me happy by approving my ARC requests.


To be honest, I don’t know much about this book except it’s a fantasy novel based on Bolivia’s history. I’m mostly enamored with that gorgeous cover and want to give it a try.


This is a gender swapped retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo (which I don’t remember reading), so I’m expecting a badass woman on a quest for revenge and hopefully add another favorite Asian author to my list.


This maybe a sequel for one of my favorite YA contemporaries, but I’m actually dreading reading it. Let’s see how I’ll feel once it releases.


I don’t know much about this book except that it has a heist, and I seem to be quite fond of that trope these days. Let’s hope it’s a lot of fun.


In the author’s own words, this book asks serious questions about societal pressures and toxic masculinity, and what it means to be a real “man”? I’ve only read one anthology edited by the author before and found it to be a brilliant read, so I am very excited to read more of his work and this sounds amazing.

Do you have any of these books on your TBR? Have you already read any of them? What did you think? What other books are you most excited for this January? Let me know all about your feelings in the comments below…

  1. I have a few of these on my TBR too. And I really want to start the first series mentioned here sometime. One book that I’m hoping to get read in January (I’ve ordered it into the library so hopefully it doesn’t take too long to turn up) is The God Game which is quite different to a lot of my reads. I’ve also requested Foul Is Fair but as it comes out quite late in the month I doubt that one will be ready for me until February. I hope you get to read more of these – it’s fantastic that you’ve already loved some of them – and enjoy them too.

  2. So many interesting books in your lineup!!

    I personally am scaling back in 2020, so I don’t have any new or upcoming releases lined up, but have plans to catch up on my backlist TBR. And the 3 books I am looking forward to most in January – include 2 non fiction reads (Deep Work and Digital Minimalism) and 1 romance (Unhoneymooners).
