Can't Wait For...Three 2020 Titles That Just Had Cover Reveals!! Come See the Pretties!!!

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Hi Bookworms!

So many gorgeous covers came out this week! I already feel behind on Can't Wait Wednesday, lol! Maybe I should do a cover round up soon. I keep saying that. Would you read it? I used to do them a lot, but wasn't sure if you guys read them!

Today, because I had a three-way tie, I'm going to show you THREE covers that ALL just revealed Monday and Tuesday!


WE FREE THE STARS by Hafsah Faizal

I knew it was coming and couldn't wait to see it! Plus, I can't wait to get my greedy mitts on a copy! WE HUNT THE FLAME by Hafsah Faizal was one of the break-out debuts of 2019 for every good reason in the world, and a lot of us are ready to pounce on the 2020 sequel WE FREE THE STARS. Plus, how fantastic is that title!?

The new cover is so, so, SO gorgeous. Lookie, lookie:

And, and, and....look at the beautiful book babies TOGETHER!


Keep reading below for our first peek at the summary from this upcoming sophomore release!

ONE TRUE KING by Soman Chainani

OMG, OMG, OMG. The end is finally here! The School for Good and Evil is one of my all-time favorite middle-grade series, and why didn't it exist when I was a kid? WHY!? I have no words for just how much I love this series. I have been reading it since the very first book and they just get better and better. Soman Chainani has been teasing us online that a cover was coming for a while, and it happened so unexpectedly yesterday, and I almost started bawling at my screen with happiness!

...Also, I'm terrified for June because this is it. This is the end. I REALLY don't want to say goodbye. ;_;

This might be my favorite cover in the entire series, though! How about you? I need it even more after seeing this work of art!


I had heard about this book in passing. I mean, LISTEN. If you are going to pitch a book as Moulin Rouge meets Phantom of the Opera meets The Night Circus, I am going to instantly auto-add your book to my TBR Pile. No questions asked. None. I love ALL those things so much!

I don't know if I would instantly gravitate toward this cover at the store. It has a little spectacle to it, and I guess it does have a Phantom of the Opera vibe looking at it again now, but I guess I just want a Night Circus or Caraval cover for it, I don't know! I don't even know what I'm thinking. It's not a bad cover, and I'm sure I'll be in love with it the more I look at it. I already am obsessed with the starlight woven behind the title if you look closely. Wednesday Books has been killing it with secret embossed covers lately, too, so I'm hoping this one also gets that magical treatment!

What are your thoughts on this cover?

Summary below, as well! I'm sure we'll have a fuller one soon!
