My Most Anticipated Books of 2021

Happy New Year Friends! With 2020 (thankfully) having drawn to an end, it is time to look forward to what 2021 has in store for avid book lovers! Similar to past years (201720182019, 2020), I’ve compiled a list of the top books in 2021 that I’m looking forward to being released.   Quite a few books on the following list might better be classified as wishful thinking, i.e., Winds of Winter, Doors of Stone, Red Rising #7. Ever the optimist, I couldn’t help but group them in with the rest, along with a few on the radar for 2022. Here’s to a fantastic reading year for all!

  1. I’ve read Red Rising, but I haven’t gone onto the second book yet, and Lore is one I’m looking forward to this year, too! Great list!! I hope you get those unannounced books you’re hoping for!

    • Oh Ali! You’ll need to continue on to the second book. Each Red Rising gets better and better. One of my favorite series of all times!

      And I hope so too! Especially if it’s by Rothfuss or Martin. 😀 Happy New Year!
