Even more 2020 YA releases

Hello! About a month ago, I wrote a blog post about three YA releases that I am very excited for. I enjoyed writing it so much that I am back, writing about even more book releases that I'm excited for. I also threw in one middle grade book that I'm excited for as I am very much a rebel, in that sense.

1) Loveless by Alice Oseman

I am a great fan of Alice Oseman's Heartstopper books. They are a fabulous series of graphic novels about two boys that go from strangers to friends, then friends to something more. I've just stated reading some of her actual novels and I'm really enjoying them (although I've got many books on the go so haven't finished any yet) so I'm super excited for the release of Loveless. I've also heard it features an aroace protagonist which makes me even more excited as we NEED more aromantic and asexual representation.
Publication date: July 19th.

2) The Austen Girls by Lucy Worsley

I love reading books about historical figures. Especially my favourite writers. This book is about Jane Austen's nieces, Fanny and Anna, as they ask questions about love and their lives to their Aunt Jane, as she seems to be the only one who knows the answers. Also I absolutely LOVE books set in the regency period.
Publication date: April 2nd.

3) Love Frankie by Jaqueline Wilson

Jaqueline Wilson is releasing a new book! This is actually a middle grade book but I am so excited for it so I needed a little place to talk about it. The main reason I'm excited for it is about a fourteen-year-old girl, Frankie, who starts a new school and is bullied by the "cool" girls in her class. However, when Frankie realises that one of the bullies, Sally, isn't so mean at all they become best friends. But their friendship is stronger than anything Frankie has felt before and soon she is wondering if what she is feeling is love. Yes people, you heard me, Jaqueline Wilson has written a middle-grade, lesbian romance.

Publication date: April 16th

4) Love is for Losers by Wibke Brueggeman

By this point you should of learnt I am slightly obsessed with lgbtq+ romances, so here is another one I'm looking forward to. Phoebe believes falling in love is vile and vows to never do it. That's until she meets Emma, whilst working at a thrift shop, who might manage to change her whole theory on both life and love. I'd also like to add that in the description, on Goodreads, it says: "Think of this as Bridget Jones' Diary, if it were written by Bridget's daughter", which excites me. A lot.
Publication date: July 14th

That's all for now. What releases are you looking forward to, this year?
