Top Ten Tuesday // 2020 releases I’m thankful for

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s theme is:

November 24: Thanksgiving/I’m Thankful for

For this week’s theme, I’m sharing some of the 2020 releases I’m thankful for.

Black Sun


I’m so thankful for the audio of this book because it was fantastic. The writing style is beautiful and I got so invested in Xiala and Serapio’s stories. This book has blessed 2020.

Felix Ever After

I haven’t read this yet (WHAT AM I DOING), but I’m so, so thankful more books by trans authors are getting published and I’ve heard only good things about this one. Now, to get to it ASAP!

Cemetery Boys

Similar to Felix Ever After, I (shamefully) haven’t read this book yet, but I’m so happy we’re getting more trans stories and I can’t wait to read this one because it has magic and an enemies-to-lovers romance.

Take a Hint, Dani Brown

I’m thankful that this book released in 2020 because I read Chloe Brown earlier this year and now I don’t have to wait for the sequel. I’ve heard amazing things about this one so I can’t wait to dive in.

Punching the Air

I read this a few months ago and I’m so thankful for this book because it really got me back into verse novels. After I read this, I read The Poet X and I’m going to read The Black Flamingo soon.

These Violent Delights

I’m currently reading this and I’m so thankful for this book because it’s? just? amazing? The world-building is fantastic, blending 1920s glamour with Shanghai culture and the sinister undertones of the plot making it such a captivating read.

Boyfriend Material

This book made me laugh so much; in fact, it’s probably the funniest book I’ve read in 2020, so I’m glad I got to pick up such an entertaining read.

Iron Heart

I’m so glad this released in 2020 because I was WASTING AWAY WAITING FOR IT. After reading Crier’s War in 2019, I was desperate to find out how the duology would conclude, and it didn’t disappoint.

All Boy’s Aren’t Blue

This was such an insightful, raw read and I’m so glad that I listened to the audiobook because George M. Johnson’s narration is fantastic.

The House in the Cerulean Sea

I read this on a whim just after it released because the audiobook was on Scribd and it sounded fun. And I’m SO pleased I picked it up because it was such a heartwarming, sweet read.

Which 2020 releases are you thankful for? Have you read any of these books?
