Helloooo, welcome to my blog 🙂
It’s that time of year again where I share my most anticipated releases for the coming year. Once again I’m going to be sharing this list every three months starting off with January, February and March.
In past years I’ve talked about every single book that’s grabbed my attention even just slightly, this time around I’m going to try and narrow that to books I actually foresee myself reading. I want to have read most of these by December so I think the less books I talk about the better.
Lore by Alexandra Bracken
I’ve seen this be pegged as “Percy Jackson meets the Hunger Games” but I became even more interested in reading this after I read a chapter sampler.
The premise of this book is that every couple of years the Agon begins; the Greek Gods become mortal and hunted. Whoever kills them gains their powers and immortality, at least for the next seven years.
I haven’t read anything else from Bracken since The Darkest minds so I’m interested in reading this one.
Release Date: January 6th
The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe
Apparently this is being adapted into a film starring Millie Bobby Brown, I didn’t know this before adding it to my TBR. I was actually interested in this because of the cover. It’s super simple but I really like the design.
This book is about a con artist who is trying to live a normal life but she’s having a really bad day. Her ex walks in on her and her girlfriend and then, to make matters worse, she’s kidnapped during a bank heist.
LGBT+ characters anda bank heist. I’m ready for this.
Release Date: January 26th
What Big Teeth by Rose Szabo
This book cover is seriously cool and the concept of Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children meets The Addams Family sounds even cooler.
I’ve had my eyes on this for a while but besides from what I mentioned above I don’t actually know much about the plot. Sometimes that’s for the best.
It comes out in just a couple of weeks though so hopefully I’ll find out soon enough. It’s already on my Amazon wishlist.
Release Date: February 2nd
A Pho Love Story by Loan Le
I’m loving this recent surge of books about the kids of rival businesses growing closer and forming friendships/relationships. First Tweet Cute, then Verona Comics, which I still need to read, and now this which is about rival pho restaurants.
I’ve never eaten Pho, I don’t even know where I’d get it from where I live but it looks yummy so I’ll make do with reading about it for the time being.
Also I want to read more diverse and this of course has characters of Asian heritage.
Release Date: February 9th
The Castle School for Troubled Girls by Alyssa Sheinmel
I don’t know much about this one but I don’t need to. After reading an loving Sheinmel’s 2020 release: What Kind of Girl, I have high hopes for her newest book.
Besides from wanting to read more from this author I also want to read more thrillers and I am always a sucker for books set at boarding school.
Release Date: March 2nd
She’s Too Pretty to Burn by Wendy Heard
I’ve seen people getting arcs of this already and I’m jealous. I feel like I’m gonna love this or hate it. I don’t know why I think this but I’ve just got a feelingggg and so I’m interested in seeing which what I think.
This book is described as a sexy psychological thriller inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray which I’ve read, even if was a short lower level edition.
It also has a ridiculously pretty cover. I’m obsessed with the colours and the sunglasses.
Release Date: March 30th
With You All the Way by Cynthia Hand
I only found out about this book recently after Hailey in Bookland mentioned it in various BookMas videos and now I can’t wait to read it.
This book follows Ada who finds out her boyfriend cheated on her after trying to loose her virginity to him. On a family trip to Hawaii Ada becomes fed up of her sisters advice and when she finds out her mum is having an affair she decides she’s just going to get it over with an have sex.
This sounds really interesting, plus I like the name Ada which is irrelevant but I thought I’d mention it.
Release Date: March 30th
And so there we have seven releases I’m looking forward to in the upcoming months. Most of these I’m probably gonna get on Kindle for the simple fact that they’re cheaper and will take up less space.
It’s sad that I probably won’t be able to have a physical copy of these gorgeous covers but I’m hoping being able to click and have it on my kindle within minutes will push me to read these.
I’d love to know what new releases you want to read. Thanks so much for reading and stay safe!
