My most anticipated releases of 2021 // July, August & September.

Hi, hey hello and welcome to my blog!!

It’s that time of year again where I say “here are some new releases that I really wanna read asap” even though we all know the likelihood of me reading these books any time soon is very slim. It’s a game we play a couple of times a year, we all know the drill by now, it’s cool.

I’m kind of strapped for time today. What with breakfast to cure my mums hangover this morning, a couple of drinks with friends this afternoon and then me organising a Shrek movie marathon with my friend later tonight, it’s a good job I only have 6 books to talk about.

I say “only” six books as if that’s not more then I read in a month but I digress. Here are the up and coming releases I would really like to get to as soon as possible (in theory).

January, February & March // April, May & June.


The Right Side of Reckless by Whitney D. Grandison

For some reason it was the title that first grabbed my attention for this book and I’m not sure why but I’m glad it did. I actually was accepted to be part of the blog-tour for this book so out of all these books, I will actually be reading this soon.

This is a YA contemporary romance between a guy who breaks every rule he can, and a “good girl”. I don’t know much more then this but I feel like you can’t really go wrong with this trope and I think I’m going to really enjoy it. I guess we’ll see when it comes tome reviewing it.

Release Date: July 13th 2021

Any Way the Wind Blows by Rainbow Rowell

The chances of this making me cry and very high and I don’t think I’m ready for it but here I am.

I got into this series a little late. I didn’t have to wait 5+ years for Wayward Son like others and I think that’s why I enjoyed that second book more then some people seemed to. What I liked about the sequel was the realistic depiction of life after saving the world and what comes after being “the Chosen One” so I’m hoping we see more of this … while still having them all live happily ever after.

Release Date: July 6th 2021


The Dead and the Dark by Courtney Gould

I had this book added to my Goodreads TBR before I knew anything about it back at the start of the year. I saw the cover and immediately went “yes please!”.

I’ve since come to learn that this book is set in a town where teenagers are going missing, turning up dead and some weird things are happening with the weather and all signs point to famous TV ghost hunters.

You say the word “ghost hunters” and I’m on board 100%. I feel like this is one I’m gonna try and read before Halloween so I can recommend it, or leave it specifically for spooky season. I don’t know yet.

Release Date: August 3rd 2021

The Wild Ones by Nafiza Azad

And here we have another I added to my TBR based solely on the ridiculously gorgeous covers.

Cover designers are really stepping up their game and my eyeballs appreciate it immensely!

According to the tag line this a “thrilling, feminist fantasy” which I very much like the sound of. Until I just read that, I did not realise it had any supernatural or paranormal vibes to it so that makes me even more up for reading it.

Release Date: August 3rd 2021


Never Saw You Coming by Erin Hahn

You better believe my favourite authors new release is one I am going to be reading before it’s release date, especially since I was extremely luck enough to receive an ARC again.

Hahn’s previous two releases have both made my “Favourites of the year” list for 2 years running so my expectations are high. Compared to her previous two novels which focused heavily on music and characters who had a passion for music in one way or another, this doesn’t seem to have that.

I follows a side character from More Than Maybe who discovers her whole life has been a lie, and takes a gay year to learn more about a family she never knew she existed and during that time she meets a pastors son called Micha. While I loved the music aspects of her two previous novels, I’m still excited to see what this book has in store.

Release Date: September 7th 2021 

The Lost Girls by Sonia Hartl

We’re months out from this books release date but I feel like I’ve talked about it way too much already. You’ll have to bare with me talking about it just a little bit more.

Vampire books have been making a come-back and I am very happy about that fact. Especially since they seem to be getting gayer and with less love-triangles.

This one in particular is tagged as “John Tucker Must Die with a feminist girl gang of vampires“. Never actually watched John Tucker Must Die, but I’ve seen the trailer and it seems like it’d be right up my alley so a feminist vampire take on that interests me.

Release Date: September 14th 2021

So there we have 6 upcoming releases that are on my radar. This was actually meant to be 7 but turns out one of them I’d already mentioned in the my last Anticipated Release post. I guess the release date got pushed or something.

I’d love to know your thoughts on any of these book, as well as what new releases have caught your eye recently. Thanks for reading :))
