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!

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)

Click here to see my review of the first book, From Blood and Ash!
The sequel to From Blood and Ash, A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire picks up where the first book left off. I can’t say too much here without spoiling book one, but if you haven’t already started this series, you need to.
It’s been awhile since I talked about some of my favorite books that came out. So today, I want to round up some amazing releases that you need to pick up, if you haven’t already!
Ruthless Gods (Something Dark and Holy #2) by Emily A. Duncan
[ Review ]
Wicked Saints was one of my favorite reads of 2019, so it’s no surprise that Ruthless Gods is on this list. If you haven’t already delved into this series, you definitely should. The series is a gothic fantasy with a true enemies-to-lovers couple at the center. The second book has even more angst and violence than the first!
Crave (Crave #1) by Tracy Wolff
[ Review ]
Think Twilight but 2020 edition. This book follows a Grace, who must transfer to a mysterious boarding school in Alaska after the tragic death of her parents. There, she meets Jaxon, a dark and mysterious boy who she finds herself drawn to.
Incendiary (Hollow Crown #1) by Zoraida Cordova
Renata Convida is a rebel spy working against the crown, but when her commander is taken captive, she will do anything to save him. As she goes undercover in the palace, she must convince those around her that she remains loyal.
