#SixforSunday is hosted by A Little But A Lot, and each week, there’s a different prompt, and you list six books that fit the prompt. The theme for January is It’s All About Books!
This week’s prompt is Books You’re Excited For in 2021. I’ve done already done a couple of posts like this this month that focused on romance and YA books that I’m excited about. Fortunately, there are so many amazing sounding books coming out in 2021 that I could make another list of anticipated releases. Like my other lists, this one is organized by release date.
Broken (In the Best Possible Way) by Jenny Lawson (April 6, 2021) – I didn’t realize this book was coming out until I started researching my 2021 release posts. When I noticed it on Goodreads, I squealed with joy and immediately added it to my TBR. Jenny Lawson is one of my favourite people, and she never fails to make me smile. If this book is anything like Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy, I will spend the entire book giggling to myself, which sounds like an amazing way to spend an afternoon.
Letters Across the Sea by Genevieve Graham (April 27, 2021) – I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this book from Simon and Schuster, and I am looking forward to diving into it soon. Last year, I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of The Forgotten Home Child, and it made me fall in love with Genevieve Graham and her ability to shine the light on areas of history that aren’t as well known. The blurb for Letters Across the Sea says that it’s about a little-known chapter of World War Two, and I’m looking forward to reading and learning.
Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid (May 25, 2021) – After reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Daisy Jones and the Six, I can safely say that I will read anything that Taylor Jenkins Reid writes. This book’s premise sounds like it involves some family secrets, which is a trope that I adore. I also love that Taylor Jenkins Reid can make fictional famous people seem real, and I’m looking forward to having that feeling while I read this book.
The Box in the Woods by Maureen Johnson (June 15, 2021) – When I finished reading The Hand on the Wall last year, I was sad because I had to say goodbye to my favourite group of characters. Then a few months later, this book was announced, and I was thrilled to find out that I would get to hang out with Stevie, Nate, Janelle, Vi, and hopefully David again. This book takes on a new mystery, and I am so excited about it.
While We Were Dating by Jasmine Guillory (July 13, 2021) – This book is the sixth book in The Wedding Date series, and even though I haven’t read books four and five yet, I need this book in my life. The Wedding Date books are a lot of fun, and even though they follow a bit of a formula, I love them. I also love the covers of the books in this series, and I’m excited to stick this one on my shelf to see them all together.
The Hawthorne Legacy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (September 7, 2021) – The Inheritance Games was one of my favourite books of 2020, and I need this book. The Inheritance Games ended on a bit of a cliff hanger, and I think it’s cruel that I have to wait until September to find out what happens next. I’m fascinated by the Hawthorne Family, and I need to know all of their secrets as soon as possible.
