Wondering what to read now? If you’re looking for book suggestions, look no further! Here are all the hot new February 2020 book releases for you. I’ll let you know what I’ve read, what I can’t wait to read, and what’s getting all the attention this month.
After tons of highly promoted titles (and plenty of controversy) in January, the February 2020 book releases are not getting nearly as much attention.
Don’t let that deter you from snagging one of the hot new books out. After scouring through the lists of February 2020 book releases, I choose ten titles that piqued my interest.
Here are my thoughts about the five books I’ve already read and the five I have on my radar. Be sure to let me know which ones you want to read in the comments!
A quick overview of the month:
- An in-depth World War II history
- Three modern-day thrillers
- A Victorian England detective story
- A heartwarming tale of finding connection

February 2020 book Releases – Advance Review Copies
All in all, my love of World War II books made this my favorite of the February 2020 book releases I’ve read. Just be prepared for an informative read instead of a thrilling read. Read more →

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Redhook. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
