This is in no way an exhaustive list of all the books just the ones I’m eagerly awaiting.
I’ve put them in order of their release to make it more coherent. I added the release date as it stands right now in the US but they are subject to change.
Also clicking on the image will take you to Goodreads to find out more or add it to your already out of control TBR. You’re welcome 🙂
There is a mix of Adult, Young Adult, and Middle Grade. Most of these are also sequels & Fantasy.
I only have two or three new to me authors. Maybe that’s bad but I like to get series completed before starting new ones. It obviously doesn’t always happen like that but I do strive to finish series because I need to know how it ends.
Luckily 2021 is providing me with ALL the sequels.
Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas January 12
YA Contemporary which takes place prior to The Hate You Give.
The prequel to The Hate You Give follows 17 year old Maverick Carter as he navigates what the world expects him to be and who he is capable of being.
I’m excited to read more Angie Thomas!
We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal January 19
YA Fantasy The sequel and conclusion to We Hunt the Flame.
I’m equal parts ready & NOT ready. I want them all to be happy & safe.
Is that too much to ask??
Written in Starlight by Isobél Ibañez January 26
YA Fantasy Companion novel to Woven in Moonlight.
I’m so ready to be back in this world. We’re following a character from the first book but we didn’t get to see much of them there.
Can’t wait to see what adventures await!
The Iron Raven by Julie Kagawa February 9
YA Fantasy a new book in a new spinoff series of The Iron Fey series.
I’m optimistically hopeful. The previous spinoff was terrible.
In this we are following Puck the funny sidekick turned leading fey.
The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna February 9
YA Fantasy first book in a new series.
Warriors, magic, and things are not what they seem.
This looks and sounds awesome!
The Galaxy & the Ground Within by Becky Chambers February 16
Adult Science Fiction the fourth book in the Wayfarer series. I don’t care who we’re following I’m going to be there.
Her characters and the found families they make for themselves just kill me every time.
An Unexpected Peril by Deanna Raybourn March 2
Adult Mystery The sixth book in the Veronica Speedwell series.
This isn’t the last there’s at least a couple more planned. Which is great since I can’t get enough of this duo.
Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare March 2
YA Fantasy Second book in the Last Hours Series.
I feel like this is a lot of peoples highly anticipated books & you can’t blame them with that kind of ending. Plus the characters are just entertaining as hell.
Red Tigress by Amélia Wen Zhao March 2
YA Fantasy Sequel to Blood Heir. This series reminds me of Marie Lu’s Young Elites series.
Our morally gray main character is trying to get back her kingdom and enlists the help of those who are the enemy of the kingdom.
Aru Shah & the City of Gold by Roshani Chokshi April 6
Middle Grade Fantasy The fourth book in the series.
These are just great stories with awesome characters. I love that these feature Hindu myths.
Witches Steeped in Gold by Ciannon Smart April 20
YA Fantasy first book in a new series.
The cover is what drew me in initially but then I read the synopsis.
A Jamaican inspired story of two sworn enemies entering a precarious alliance to take down a threat. Like YES PLEASE!
The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He May 4
YA Science Fiction/ Thriller
I’m going into this one with as little info as possible. Because apparently this is a crossover of sorts and I don’t want to spoil anything.
A Psalm of Storms & Silence by Rosanne A. Brown June 1
YA Fantasy sequel to A Song Of Wraiths and Ruin.
Bring on my utter destruction!
I miss my fierce warrior and my soft boi!
I love how this story tackles anxiety its underrepresented especially in Fantasy settings.
The Hidden Palace by Helene Wecker June 8

I’m super curious as to how this will continue. The first book takes place in the 1920’s in New York when these two meet.
Witchshadow by Susan Dennard June 22
YA Fantasy The Fourth book in the Witchlands series.
If i were to rank these this would be No.1 I LOVE this series with my whole being. And I especially love Iseult!
The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri June 22
The first book in a new series with f/f r0mance angst and politics. I don’t need to know more than that. I just need the book in my hands please.
Teen Titans: Beast Boy Loves Raven by Kami Garcia September 14

I was stunned that this was the next to be released because I thought it would be Cyborg. But I will GLADLY take this one!

No cover or title as of right now 😦
