My Most Anticipated Autumnal and Winter Book Releases

Hi fellow bookworms. I am so excited to be back blogging and talking about the book releases this quarter that caught my eye. Some of these will have already been released as April has obviously come and gone, and May nearly has too. But there are so many upcoming books releases and newly released books that sound SO GOOD and are giving me the absolute best dopamine rush. Let’s get into them ! 🎉

New year, new series – January 2021 TBR

New year, new series – January 2021 TBR

2020 was a rough year for me, just like I’m sure it was for every other person. I’d bet good money I’m not the only one glad to see the other side of 2020. Even though I don’t think it’s ever good to wish time away, I’m really ready for a new year and to focus on writing, reading and finding happiness in those two things again.

As we’re beginning the new year (which by the way, has already been made thanks to Harry Styles and Phoebe Waller-Bridge) I have to admit I’m just an absolute sucker for setting resolutions, new beginnings and new goals. I’m just one of those people that loves ticking things off to-do lists and just an overall fan of structure in general. When it comes to my reading life that’s no exception.

For the first month of 2021, I want to start tackling the series that I’ve had culminating on my TBR shelf for a while. I have 10 first books in a series I’ve selected that I’m excited to pick up. Am I expecting to finish all 10? Unlikely, but I’m excited about the pool of choices I’ve selected for myself.

MY AUTO-READ SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY AUTHORS

MY AUTO-READ SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY AUTHORS

I feel the need to explain my delay in posts quickly… three assignments due in the last seven days, have some mercy on me please! 😜

Top 5 Wednesday topic this April 11th has been slightly modified. The original topic read; auto-buy authors, and maybe the concept is a little bit different altogether, but honestly I rarely buy books. Of the 25 books I’ve read this year, only two have been from my personal shelf, the rest were sourced from my local library!

I personally found this list very easy to curate, because I’ve read such great books from these authors either recently or in the last year or so. If you’d like to join in on future discussions, visit the goodreads group!
