Exciting 2021 Releases // January – June

Hello again, my dear readers. I am thrilled to be sharing with you today some of the books that I am eagerly awaiting the release of in the next six months. There are so many wonderful stories that will soon be in hands of readers, it is both overwhelming and exciting.

Seeing as I have nothing further to add to thisw33 pitifully short intro, have fun scrolling through these, mostly, pleasant covers. πŸ™‚

*Disclaimer: I have not read any of these books and therefore do not know if I would recommend them to you.


The Paris Dressmaker by Kristy Cambron

All of Cambron’s books have made it on my mental favorites list. Her stories are moving and beautiful.

I cannot wait for my pre-order of the book to arrive in the next few weeks!

When Twilight Breaks by Sarah Sundin

Sundin is easily my favorite WWII romance author. She always makes the stories seem fresh and interesting while dealing with the realities of human shortcoming and the horrors of war.

I am eagerly anticipating receiving this lovely book in the mail. (Thank you, Mama + Papa.)

The Thief of Blackfriars Lane by Michelle Griep

Female swindler who leads a crew that cons the rich and gives to the London poor, set in 1885. What more do I have to say?

Hope Between the Pages by Pepper Basham

I came across this book randomly, but I am always excited to try a new author, especially when the book summary mentions bookshops and mysterious letters.

The Nature of a Lady by Roseanna M. White

Besides the unfortunately cringe title, I am so excited for this book. White is easily one of my top four favorite authors and the author whose books I own the most of (nine at the moment).

May 4 cannot come soon enough to receive this beauty.

All Through the Night by Tara Johnson

Another new, to me, author. Honestly it was the cover that made me add it to my tbr but since then I’ve read some positive reviews that have made me excited to locate a copy.

A Dance in Donegal by Jennifer Deibel

Another beautiful cover and new author. After seeing this book show up on many of the bookstagram accounts we follow, it found it’s way to this list.

No Journey Too Far by Carrie Turansky

I really enjoyed No Ocean Too Wide and I am excited to continue the McAlister family’s story.

The Prince of Spies by Elizabeth Camden

I loved The Spice King and middle disliked The Gilded Lady, so I guess there is a 50% chance I will love the final book of this trilogy. I am really hoping…..

Young Adult

Somewhere Between Bitter and Sweet by Laekan Rea Kemp

This book sounds exactly like something I would love and I am quite hopeful that I will love it.

After all, a book about family and food with Mexican-American main characters sounds simply wonderful.

You Have a Match by Emma Lord

This book made it on this list due to the fact the summary sounds interesting, I have heard good things about Tweet Cute, and I love the lake scene on the cover. πŸ™‚

Counting Down With You by Tashie Bhuiyan

This own-voices debut sounds like quite a bit of fun, dozens of books (!!!), drama and fake-dating, as well as a count-down, I mean what’s not to like?

The Secret Bridesmaid by Katy Birchall

I loved Birchall’s It Girl series a couple years ago, and am still sad about the fact that my library system failed to buy her subsequent releases. This story sounds perfectly light-hearted and dramatic to balance out the massive amount of non-fiction reading I will surely be doing in May.

American Betiya by Anuradha D. Rajurkar

Another debut author and interesting summary. I am excited to learn a bit about Indian culture through Rani who, if all the glowing reviews have it right, promises to be a unique and layered character.


All That Really Matters by Nicole Deese

I half enjoyed Before I Called You Mine and was half annoyed by it. Regardless of my feeling for it, I am looking forward to Deese’s next release.

Unknown Threat by Lynn H. Blackburn

I cannot wait for this book! Besides the fact that it is Blackburn’s newest work, it is centered around FBI and Secret Service agents (!!).

Hmmm…maybe I should add this one to my pre-order list.

Lethal Intent by Cara Putman

After reading all of Putman’s previous books, I have discovered that her writing improves and deepens with each release, therefore I am quite excited for Lethal Intent!

Golden Gate by James Ponti

My younger siblings and I enjoyed City Spies and I am looking forward to continuing this entertaining story in book 2. πŸ™‚

Are any of these books are your tbr? What are a couple of books (or movies or shows) that you are looking forward to that releasing in the first half of 2021? How has your 2021 been going so far? Anything wonderfully good or terribly bad?
