Yes, you did just read the title correctly. This list is going to be extremely long and I am already scared.
Welcome to the second-last post of my end of year posts. Though the list is very long, this post is going to be rather short because there are just TOO many books to talk about them all *nervous laughter*
If you didn’t know, 2020 was a failure of a year in terms of reading books on my physical tbr, among a plethora of other reasons. I say that with no exaggeration on the behalf of the entire world. But I did want to do this post again so I can have a list to look back on.
I’m putting no pressure on myself as I clearly failed at the last one but having this list out in the universe might urge me just a smidge. Trying not to jinx it here folks.
I’m dividing this up into a few sections because… well honestly I don’t know why I just feel like it. No surprise there. Let’s get into it!!
TOP 21 BOOKS TO READ IN 2021
My priority list hasn’t changed since last year apart from one other which I’ve added, which I’ll quickly talk about. The rest I’ve talked all about in my 2020 tbr post. I just NEED to get to them already so I can know what everyone is talking about oops.
THE PRIORITY LIST
– Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo
– Vicious by V.E. Schwab
– A Torch Against The Night by Sabaa Tahir
– The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare & others
– The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X. R. Pan
Oof I have such intense FOMO that I’m literally the last person on the planet who has not read this book. It is shameful. And I know it’s going to blow my socks off with its beauty and that I’ll adore it. Which is why I’ve put it off. I tend to avoid sad things, especially when it comes to grief because I know my heart will shatter. So my only excuse is that I’m scared but I also just NEED to finish it so I can scream about it and understand why people love it so much.
2019 BOOK RELEASES
Yeah uh-huh, you remember that post? The one with all the 2019 book releases on my tbr? Did I read any of them? No. Actually, that’s a lie. I think I read ONE of them.
Though that doesn’t really mean anything so let’s just say I failed at that tbr.
Basically, they’re all still on my tbr so I’ve just featured the ones that I’m most excited to get to, like the ones that I own.
So… okay I’ll stop talking now.
2020 BOOK RELEASES
Because I OF COURSE still have tons of these. Though I think I did well with new releases last year, there are some I missed out on.
Lowkey should’ve made a pie chart for my stats post. Oh well.
BOOKS I WANT TO REREAD
I want to reread considerably less this year than I did last year because well… as you can see I have a lot of new books to get through. However there a few I’d like to reread. Idk if I will, but adding them here anyway.
Percy Jackson & The Olympians by Rick Riordan
The PJO hype has been REAL recently and I feel so bad that I can hardly remember any of the details about the original series. And with the show announcement, I’d like to refresh my memory. I also miss Percabeth. That’s all I have to say and all I need to make me want to reread. I’m bad like that.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
As you may have seen, I have the Grisha trilogy on my 2021 tbr. Because I am shameful and haven’t read them yet. And I’m not sure if you noticed, the S&B tv show is coming out this year and !!! I AM SO SO SO EXCITED. Literally just got more news today and THE COVERS ARE SO STUNNING I NEED IT NOW. So, of course, I also need to reread Six of Crows, aka my fave. I’d like to get to all of the Grisha books, including King of Scars before the show is out. So hehe wish me luck. I do plan to buddy reread this duo which should be fun. April is going to sneak up on us so lots of reading to get done.
Eliza & Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
This is purely on here because I consider it like my favourite book (amongst like two others) but haven’t read it in ages and just miss it. Wanna read again and re-experience why I love it so much. That’s literally it. Also *knocks on wood* I hope it’s still as good or my soul may be crushed.
And that is all my friends. Sorry if that was rather short. Idk maybe it’s a relief because my posts are always a bazillion years-long whoops.
Oh before I forget. I mentioned I wanted to add my WORST BOOKS OF 2020 to a post. So here they are:
Didn’t like any of these #sorrynotsorry
Now we’re done.
Peace out friends!
WHAT IS ON YOUR 2021 TBR? WHAT 2020 RELEASES DID YOU MISS OUT ON? WHAT BOOKS DO YOU DEFINITELY NEED TO GET TO THIS YEAR? I’D LOVE TO KNOW!
