I’ve somehow made it to the third month of 2021 without sharing with you my new five star predictions! I could blame it on my busy schedule and all sorts of things, but I’m gonna be honest… I was waiting for the cover reveal for my most anticipated read of this year. I wanted to be able to share it whilst gushing about how much I think I’m gonna love this book, lol. Now that the gorgeous cover has been revealed, it’s time to throw my list together!
Now, last year I don’t think I had any rhyme or reason to the books I tossed on the list. This ended up in me going back to see if my predictions were accurate and realizing I hadn’t even read half of the books! So we’re trying to be more intentional in 2021. What does that mean? It means I’ve chosen ten books (five backlist and five new or soon-to-be realeased) that are already on my admittedly very loose 2021 TBR. These are books that I have every intention of actually reading this year. We’ll see how well I’ve done with both my predictions and my reading once December rolls around 😅
That being said, let’s get to the list!
Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko
We’re going to kick off this list with my most anticipated book of 2021! I read Raybearer, the first book in this duology, around this time last year and was instantly in love. I adored everything about the book and immediately wanted to read the next one! I’ve been
not-so patiently waiting for this book and I just know I’m going to end up giving it five stars.
Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas
I love Angie Thomas and I will read absolutely anything she writes. So when I heard that a prequel to The Hate U Give that was focused on Maverick, I knew I was going to pick it up. I’ve also only ever given her books five stars, so this is kind of an easy pick for the list, lol. I can’t wait to read this one!
The Cost of Knowing by Brittney Morris
This is the sophomore novel from the author of SLAY, a book that I adored! I’m excited to see what Brittney Morris with a contemporary story that has a little magic sprinkled in. Why do I think this one will be five stars? Because I’m enraptured by this author’s writing and the story sounds fascinating! Also, just look at that cover 😍
