Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2021

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2021.” I had about twenty books that I really wanted to put on this list, but after some crying and apologizing, I managed to narrow it down to ten books. Half of these are sequels to series I’ve loved, most are fantasy books because of course, and a few are by my all-time favorite authors. Basically, I am going to end up broke because of these releases. Covers are linked to Goodreads.
