I try not to buy too many new books. Therefore I tend to avoid all these lists of upcoming books or just have a very quick glance at them, but refuse to add anything to my want-to-read-pile. I dream of the day, when I have no books piling up on my kindle or my living room table… Alas, I have middling success. Here are a few books I want to read in 2021. It’s a pretty short list, yay!
Expected publication: February 2nd 2021 by Image Comics
The black-and-white artwork of the first two volumes was excellent. Beautifully drawn, rich details, just very nice. The story was good and has lots of potential.
Blood Heir (Aurelia Ryder, #1)
by Ilona Andrews (Goodreads Author)
Expected publication: January 12th 2021 by NYLA
From award-winning author, Ilona Andrews, an all-new novel set in the New York Times #1 bestselling Kate Daniels World and featuring Julie Lennart-Olsen, Kate and Curran’s ward.
I refrained from reading this on IA‘s website, aka the weekly serialized chapters. In fact, I think that is still ongoing. The fact that there is no cover artwork yet makes me feel a little dubious about the planned publishing date of January 2021… And I am wondering if Julie will be as good as the original Kate Daniels stories.
Expected publication: March 16th 2021 by Amazon Digital Services
Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham must discover what could make an entire community disappear—before it’s too late…
I have been reading the Mercy Thompson books and this spin-off for years. It is still one of my favourite UF series, almost as loved as Ilona Andrews‘ Kate Daniels series. I actually spent the first few months of this year with re-reading all of these books in preparation for a new release of the main series.
A Desolation Called Peace (Teixcalaan, #2)
by Arkady Martine (Goodreads Author)
Expected publication: March 2nd 2021 by Tor Books
An alien armada lurks on the edges of Teixcalaanli space. No one can communicate with it, no one can destroy it, …
I really liked the first book and I can‘t wait to find out what Mahit Dzmare and Three Seagrass are going to face in this sequel to A Memory Called Empire.
Fugitive Telemetry (The Murderbot Diaries, #6)
by Martha Wells (Goodreads Author)
Expected publication: April 27th 2021 by Tor.com
Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must voluntarily speak to humans!
What can I say… Instabuy! Although the last installment dragged a bit in the middle…
Untitled (The Expanse, #9)
by James S.A. Corey (Goodreads Author)
The much awaited 9th and final installment of The Expanse series.
Oh boy, oh boy. No proper cover yet, no title yet and no publishing date… O.o <— that‘s my anxious face. It will be the end of an era… and if we‘re unlucky, it might not even happen in 2021… who knows!? Meep.
One Last Stop (Hardcover)
by Casey McQuiston (Goodreads Author)
Expected publication: May 6th 2021 by Piatkus
From the New York Times bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue comes a new romantic comedy that puts a queer spin on Kate & Leopold.
I really liked Red, White & Royal Blue. And Kate & Leopold is a fun movie…
