A Vow so Bold and Deadly – Brigid Kemmerer: January 26, 2021
I read the first two books in this series over Summer 2020, and I am completely obsessed. More of my thoughts about the first two can be found on my “August Reads” post, but I can’t wait to hear how this story concludes. I love all of the characters in this series, and the books were by far some of the most fun reads of the year.
Ready Player Two – Ernest Cline: November 24, 2020
I read Ready Player One in the Summer of 2019, and I think it might be safe to say it was my favourite book of that year. The world that Ernest Cline creates is beyond thrilling and full of nostalgia; it’s a book that I was – and still am – completely immersed in. Ernest Cline is one the most engaging writers I have come across, and I can’t wait to see what the sequel has in store!
How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories – Holly Black: November 24, 2020
I read all of The Folk of the Air Series last year, and absolutely adored each of the books. The series as a whole is on my favourites list, and as someone who loved Cardan, this novella is exactly what I need. I’m excited for the art too!
The Dreamer Trilogy (Untitled Books 2 & 3) – Maggie Stiefvater: 2021
I feel like nobody wants to hear me talk more about how much I love Maggie Stiefvater and Ronan Lynch. Call Down the Hawk, the first book in this series, was soooooooooooo – I can’t stress this enough – good. I love this man with all my heart – and Declan now too – and so these two books go down as my most anticipated reads for 2021.
Six of Crows (Untitled Book 3) – Leigh Bardugo: Release date unknown
So let me tell you something: I just found out that Leigh Bardugo is making the Six of Crows Duology into a trilogy and I am screaming. I just want to know how my boy Kaz is doing and I’ll be fine.
Tales from the Hinterland – Melissa Albert: January 12, 2021
You may remember that I talked about reading The Hazel Wood and The Night Country by Melissa Albert, and how I didn’t really enjoy them. So why is this book on here? Okay so it is true that I did not like those books, however, I really did enjoy the fairytale aspect of the series, and I would love to read the fairytales Melissa Albert was imagining while writing this. From what I know, they are dark and a little frightening, so I’m interested in reading the actual stories.
Black Tabs – V.E. Schwab: 2021
There are two main reasons I want to read this book:
- I love V.E. Schwab’s writing so much. The Shades of Magic series is one of my favourites, and I’d be happy to read any of Schwab’s books.
- The synopsis – limited as of now – sounds so cool: “Forthcoming. Starring a female assassin in a future version of New York City. Tentatively titled ‘Black Tabs'”. This is definitely something I need to read in 2021!
Let me know if you think I missed anything, or if you’re also excited about any of these books!
