My Top 21 Most Anticipated Book Releases of 2021 (Plus 100+ more!)

My Top 21 2021 Releases and 100+ more

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!

My Top 10 Favorite Reads of 2020

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!

10. The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller

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!

My Top 10 Book Releases of November 2020

Almost all of these types of posts include me rambling about how shocked I am that it’s already [insert month here] and wow time really does fly by. But this month I’m trying to break the habit.

…. okay but seriously how is it November?!

Sorry, sorry. I had to. Time has lost all meaning this year and I’m constantly confused how it still moves forward while it feels like we’re all trapped in this endless purgatory caused by the pandemic.

On that note- its time to talk book releases! November has some great books coming out and I want to talk about my top 10!!

Just a reminder, if you want to see my most anticipated releases for every month, I have a spreadsheet where I document them! Click here to view it

This spreadsheet covers 2016-2021, and I’m constantly updating it! (But be warned- the older back you go the less extensive the sheet is because I was just getting into the book community then and didn’t know where to find information on new releases)
