10 Books I Want To Read Before 2020

Here is the top 15 of my TBR (to be read) pile that I would love to get to before 2020 begins, while I hope to read all of them and will do my best to do so, I most probably won't succeed in reading them all.
Here is in no particular order, books that will come out, have already come out or have been on my shelf for a long time that I want to get to.

1. The Girl In The Tower by Katherine Arden
The Girl in the Tower (Winternight Trilogy, #2)
This is the sequel and second installment in the Winternight trilogy.
This trilogy is centered on Russian mythology and the story of a young girl as she grows up to become the woman she was always meant to be. The first book "The Bear and the Nightingale" dealves us in a world filled with magic, mystery and politics where the wrong move could cost you your life. This is a world where fairy tales aren't a work of fiction but actually long forgotten tales that are coming back to life.

This is a wonderful historical fiction inspired fantasy that will always leave you wanting to know what happens next.

2.Middlegame by Seanan McGuire
This is a new science fiction/fantasy written by the author of the Wayward children series.

This book follows a set of Twin Roger and Dodger as they are raised by Reed a alchemist who created them and wants to make them ascend and claim their authority as his own.

That's all I know and that's all I want to know as it has been presented as a children with power and an X-men feel with a dark feel to it.

3. Starsight by Brandon Sanderson
Starsight (Skyward, #2)

I can't say much about this as it is the sequel to Skyward, which came out last year.

All you need to know is that this is a beautifully written, captivating science-fiction set in a planet where humans are hiding underground and fighting an alien race on the surface. There's a pilot school and we follow Spensa who always dreamed to become a pilot, much like her father before her, she wants to redeem her family name, as before his death her father was marked a traitor.

4. The Priory of The Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
The Priory of the Orange Tree
This is a standalone High Fantasy, all I know is this.
A world divided.
A queendom without an heir.
An ancient enemy awakens."

Do we really need to know more ?

5.  Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1)
This is a finished trilogy by Rick Riordan author of the Percy Jackson series (one of his many series).
This time he takes us to the world of Norse Mythology where our main character Magnus Chase has been on the run since his mother told him to run away two years prior. The story begins when his uncle Randolph, whom is someone his mother always warned him about tracks him down. Sometimes you have to die before being able to start a new life.

6. Vicious but V.E. Schwab
Vicious (Villians #1)
Vicious is an anti-hero story, Where Victor and Eli who were once best friend gain power after a terrible accident. The story takes place ten years after Victor breaks out of prison determined to catch up with his one best-friend (now foe). Eli with a now enigmatic sidekick is determined to eradicate all people with abilities, driven by the memory of a terrible betrayal and memory.

7. The Institute by Stephen King
The Institute
This is Stephen King's latest book.
The premise of this book is children whose parents get killed, these children have powers and get taken to a place called the Institute where there is copies of their rooms with no windows or way out. There they must comply and partake in the experiments to survive otherwise they get punished.
Sometimes the real monsters are humans.

8. Loki: Where Mischief Lies by Mackenzie Lee
Loki: Where Mischief Lies
Loki is legitimately one of my favourite Norse God and partly why I love the Avengers so much.
This book is set before the events of the Avengers, when Loki wants to prove himself to be heroic and capable when everyone around him believes he will undoubtedly become villainous.

9. Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell
Wayward Son (Simon Snow, #2)
This is the most awaited sequel, we never thought we would get of Carry On.
After the events of the last book (which I won't go in details with), we are now going to have a road trip through america, where we will meet vampires and discover that though his journey is finished, Simon's life has just begun.


10. Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
Gideon the Ninth (The Ninth House, #1)
This is a lesbian necromancer in space story about Gideon whom is ready to let go of her life of servitude as a revived corpse. With her swords, dirty magazines and shoes she leaves, out there she meets the heir of the Ninth House Harrowhark Nonagesimus a necromancer, she must succeed in tasks with the help of her cavalier to become an immortal. Without Gideon's help Harrow will fail and the Ninth house will fall.
