Hi friends! It’s time for a new season of new books! At the start of each new publishing season, I find myself buried a little deeper beneath my TBR pile (the term ‘pile’ is misleadingly small), and the early 2020 crop of new releases is positively magnificent. So long, all my hopes of ever catching up! lol. Today we’re looking at Early 2020 Amish Fiction New Releases.
Here is the schedule of posts for the week so you can zero in on your fave genre!
Monday: Contemporary Fiction (non-Amish & non-suspense)
Tuesday: Historical Fiction (non-Amish & non-suspense)
TODAY: Amish Fiction
In my continued quest to streamline these posts and make them less overwhelming for me and for you too (because, sweet mercy, that’s a lot of covers and links in one place lol), I’m only selecting a few I’m most giddy about to spotlight here and then I’ll also include a link to my Goodreads shelf with ALL the books I’m excited about for early 2020. The shelves will stay up until next year.
