New Releases: Most Anticipated Releases for February 2020

New Releases: Most Anticipated Releases for February 2020

So for some reason January felt much longer than usual … although it was made better by the fact that a whole host of amazing non-fiction books were published. This included Uncanny Valley, and I hope to have that review up on the blog in the next week or so.

With 2020 starting so brilliantly, I am stoked for what books are coming down the road, and February does not look like it will disappoint.

How to Argue with a Racist by Adam Rutherford

How to Argue With a Racist by Adam Rutherford

Publishing Date: 06 February
Publishing House: Orion Books

Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women has said “A fascinating and timely refutation of the casual racism on the rise around the world. The ultimate anti-racism guide for data-lovers everywhere”. This book brings touches on multiple topics that I am interested in, and therefore I am excited to understand more of Rutherford’s thinking.

With everything that is going on globally in politics right now – especially with Britain leaving the European Union yesterday – this book feels timely and important.

American Sherlock: Murder Forensics and the Birth of American CSI by Kate Winkler Dawson

American Sherlock by Kate Winkler Dawson

 

Publishing Date: 11 February
Publishing House: G.P Putnam Sons

Recently I’ve been reading more true-crime, and American Sherlock promises too be a tantalising read. Following the life of America’s first true forensic scientist, the reader will find out about his sometimes flawed practices that helped shaped many that are still in popular use today.

I’m looking forward to a continue expansion of the books that I read, and hope that true-crime will become a regular feature!

Here for It by R. Eric Thomas

Here for It by R. Eric Thomas

Publishing Date: 18 February
Publishing House: Random House

I LOVE a memoir. Can’t get enough on them. Pair that with American history/politics/society and it is an automatic winner in my eyes.

You might know R. Eric Thomas from his daily ELLE column ‘Eric Reads the News’. I’m a big fan of his tone of writing, so I hope it has transferred into the book!

Going Dark: The Secret Social Lives of Extremists by Julia Ebner

Media of Going Dark

Going Dark by Julia Ebner

Publishing Date: 20 February
Publishing House: Bloomsbury

In Going Dark, Julia Ebner goes undercover with various groups of extremists after feeling as though she was only seeing half the story during her day job at an anti-extremist think tank.

With the current political climate and extremist ideologies gaining traction throughout the world this feels ripe for the moment. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy!

The Future we Choose by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett

The Future We Choose by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac

The Future We Choose by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac

Publishing Date: 25 February
Publishing House: Random House

It’s not secret that I read A LOT about climate change. It is after all the most pressing issue facing the world at the moment.

In The Future we Choose Figueres and Rivett-Carnac explore two scenarios based on whether or not we meet the Pairs Climate Targets. We’re yet to see the effect of Brexit on the UK’s climate policy, we can only hope that out politicians read this book.

    Going Dark sounds so interesting. I wonder how she felt spending so much time amongst extremis groups?
