With a new year brings new editions of annual traditions. One of these is the excitement over new books. This is why today, in this first full week of January 2021, we take a look at 2021 books to anticipate, part 1!
Since I also have a video due this week in which I talk about other anticipated reads, this list won’t be the entirety of the books to anticipate. And let’s be real, despite the two platforms celebrating the books I’m looking forward to, this list still won’t be inclusive. This is because a: I forget books and b: books that I don’t know about know, are announced as 2021 publications. But still, this part one offering (we circle back for a June – December anticipated list later in the year), is full of books I’m curious about. Some of which I may even be heading over to preorder (because they sound that fun).
Let’s have a look at part one of these anticipated books!

1: Hot British Boyfriend, Kristy Boyce (February)
This one sounds silly, but also darling. It’s set to follow a girl who, after being humiliated by her crush, takes drastic measures: she flees the country. She studies abroad where she decides she needs a British boyfriend, which is what makes her new friendship with another cute boy so complicated. Amazon | Goodreads
2: Is it Any Wonder, Courtney Walsh (April)
3: Never Miss, Melissa Koslin (May)
Penned by a 2021 debut author, this high-stakes thriller sounds INTERESTING! It’s set to follow a CIA sniper with a “rare pedigree.” She ends up trying to help a man whose life she saves, only to perhaps put her own in danger. Amazon | Goodreads
4: Lucky Girl, Jamie Pacton (May)
5: Let it Be Me, Becky Wade (May)
Reading the second book in Becky’s latest series is high on my MUST list. I am crazy excited for this book, especially since I think her novel Stay With Me (book one) is her best yet. Amazon | Goodreads
6: Sunkisssed, Kasie West (May)
7: Reconnected, Catherine Tinker (June)
This is a novel that is a delay publication despite it initially going to release much sooner than June of 2021 (at first), my excitement isn’t tempered. It’s a modern re-telling of Persuasion and I’m HERE for it! Amazon | Goodreads
8: Plot Twist, Bethany Turner (June)
I’ve read two of Bethany’s three prior releases. One I love, one I didn’t care for as well. This one has a bright, cheerful cover design and I cannot wait to discover what its story may tell! Amazon | Goodreads
The books I’m still “on the fence about” or don’t know enough about to fully “commit” to
Slingshot, Mercedes Helnwein (April)
Pride and Premeditation, Tirzah Price (April)
What’s Not to Love, Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka (April)
10 Truths and a Dare, Ashley Elston (May)
Last Chance Books, Kelsey Rodkey (May)
Now, over to you, happy readers. Tell me, what anticipated books are on your MUST list? Do you have any preorders already; or do you bother with preorders? Of course, I have more I’m excited or CURIOUS about, and I’ll take about some of them in this week’s (Thursday) new video. In the meantime, comment all of the bookish thoughts down in the comments.
