2021 is bringing us a lot of amazing books. There’s no way to talk about all of them, but today I want to discuss a 21 of the books I’m dying to read. In order to include most of my favorites, I’ve broken up my list into 4 parts:
- New Series – These are the first books in a completely new series
- Standalones – These books are not continuing a series, or starting a new one
- Sequels – These are sequels and companions to previously published books
- Untitled – These are books that don’t have titles (or in most cases, confirmed release dates) yet
I also included lists of more releases for each category, because there are just too many good books coming out.
If you want to see all of the 2021 releases on my radar, I keep a spreadsheet documenting them! I update it fairly regularly, so click here to check it out!!
Note: The spreadsheet is mainly for my personal use. Columns F-I are for my own cataloguing, so they may not be that useful for you. However, the the rest of the sheet hopefully will be!

I read 145 books in 2020, and today I want to talk about my 10 favorite reads of the year.
This was extremely hard to narrow down, because so many amazing books came out last year, but I managed to do it! However, this list is in no particular order (except maybe #1 and #2, because they were truly amazing).
There were also a lot of books I wanted to read this year, that I just didn’t get the chance to. So, if you’re wondering why a popular book isn’t included, it’s probably because I didn’t get to pick it up yet. But don’t worry! I’ll be discussing my 2020 TBR soon, and you might see a few of those books there.
Also, if you’re interesting in hearing all of my thoughts on one of the books, just click the rating! It will take you to my full review of the book, if I have one.
Without further ado, let’s get started!
Page Count: 326
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publication Date: 2/25/20
Rating: 5 Stars
Tricia Levenseller is one of my favorite authors, and The Shadows Between Us reminded me why. This is an addictive, fast-paced fantasy standalone following a girl determined to marry the king so she can kill him and take the crown for herself. I loved the characters and the romance, and I’m so excited to see what Tricia Levenseller writes next!

Booktok is the side of TikTok dedicated solely to books and author. It’s where readers and writers can share their experiences, talk about their favorite books, and make other bookish friends.
I’ve been posting booktok content on my TikTok account since December of 2019. For some reason, in March, one of my videos blew up. Then another. Then another. It was surreal. Now, I’ve been a booktoker for around 9 months (6 months of posting daily), and I’ve learned quite a few things about the platform.
So, if you’re new to booktok, or you’re a seasoned booktoker looking to grow their audience, I have some tips for you that might help.
I can’t promise this will make your videos blow up– I can’t pretend to understand the TikTok algorithm- but hopefully these tips can help a little.
I’m planning on making this a series on my blog, where I dive into everything booktok related. Part 2 will hopefully be coming soon, going into the history of booktok and how to start your own!

It’s been a while.
I’m sure I don’t need to talk about how crazy the world is right now. We all have been witnessing everything first hand. All I will say: while I’ve reached levels of boredom I never thought possible, it’s so important that we follow medical professional’s advice during this crisis.
But that doesn’t mean we have to be miserable!
My school is online for the rest of the semester, and my job is closed at least until the end of the month, so I suddenly have more free time.
How am I spending it?
Reading. No surprises there.
And tiktok, but we’ll get to that later. Also Animal Crossing but I’m not here to talk about that
Read more for my quarantine TBR (I can’t believe those are actual words I’m saying), and the story behind my Tiktok.
Also, if you came here from tiktok, hi! Thank you for checking out my blog! Read more if you want more details on what I do here!
