I am riding this New Year high where I truly believe I can get to all the books I’m hoping to get to. I am feeling unstoppable and am making all these lists that are way too ambitious. I know am I going to come down (or get knocked down) from this high, but for now, I’m going to embrace the optimism. For this book list I am highlighting ten 2021 releases that I really want to get to this year. This list could have easily been twice as long, but even though I am feeling optimistic, I am still realistic. Covers are linked to Goodreads.
1. Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo
I can’t believe I’ve never read a Malinda Lo novel. I’ve heard so many good things about this one and wish I had found the time earlier last year to pick this up.
2. Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley
I almost listened to the audiobook of this one from the library, but I immediately stopped because it just felt like the kind of novel I would want to read a physical copy of.
3. The Unbroken by C.L. Clark
I know this one is a pretty heavy read and so I ended up putting it off, but now I feel like I really should have read it already.
4. Black Water sister by Zen Cho
I just feel like it will be a good thing if I have more Zen Cho in my life.
5. The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina by Zoraida Córdova
I know this one is going to captivate me and I have no real reason why I haven’t read it other than it was released when I was reading a bunch of other things and so it fell down the TBR pile.
6. The Bronzed Beast by Roshani Chokshi
I am determined to get to this one, but may have to reread the first two books (or at least skim them) before doing so.
7. Jade Fire Gold by June CL Tan
This one was actually going to be my first read for 2022 before my mood shifted and I went for horror for some reason.
8. Our Way Back to Always by Nina Moreno
Words can’t express how much I love Nina Moreno’s Don’t Date Rosa Santos, so this companion novel is high on my TBR.
9. Dreaming of You by Melissa Lozada-Oliva
My only 2021 eARC that I didn’t get a chance to read. I will rectify this (hopefully early) in the new year.
10. She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan
I don’t think I’ve seen a single person not rave about this one and I am always looking to pick up more adult fantasy reads.Which of these should I get to ASAP? Which 2021 release are you making a priority this year? Let’s discuss in the comments!
