5 Books I’m Excited to Read in 2021 + New Podcast Episode

Can you believe it’s December already? This year as of this blog post I have finished a total of 42 books this year which feels totally insane, which doesn’t include every book I read for the podcast because I forgot to track them all. But, I am already looking forward to my 2021 reads and decided I’d share what I have on my list so far. I mentioned a few of these on the most recent podcast episode where Sasha and I recap our 2020 reads and look into the future, but wanted to share here as well. You can also keep up with my TBR and what I’m currently reading on Goodreads. This post may contain affiliate links.

Axiom’s End by Lindsay Ellis

Amazon.com: Axiom's End: A Novel (Noumena, 1) (9781250256737): Ellis,  Lindsay: Books
Axiom’s End

This book is largely on this list because not only was it a finalist for a Goodreads Choice Award but it is also the debut novel by one of my favorite Youtube creators, Lindsay Ellis. While it doesn’t totally fit her niche of video essays focused on mediums like music, film and television. I can’t wait to read this book as through her discussions about it on her channel, it seems to be a point of passion for her.

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

The Hating Game: A Novel - Kindle edition by Thorne, Sally. Literature &  Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.
The Hating Game

This one I am excited to read largely because my podcast co-host Sasha is OBSESSED with this one and the way she raves about it, I just have to trust her. This book is a romantic comedy that employs the enemies to lovers trope (one of my all time favorites btw).

Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert

Amazon.com: Take a Hint, Dani Brown: A Novel (The Brown Sisters)  (9780062941237): Hibbert, Talia: Books
Take a Hint, Dani Brown

This book is a sequel to another one I mentioned in one of my pandemic reads blogs. I’m really excited to see where this story goes next. Focusing on the main character of the first book’s sister I love romantic comedies that employee this method of universe building, hence my obsession with The Wedding Date series.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi 

Amazon.com: Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orisha, 1)  (9781250170972): Adeyemi, Tomi: Books
Children of Blood and Bone

So, this book and I have a complicated history. I actually started it as an audiobook at the beginning of the year before decided that I needed to get a physical copy, which I never got to. BUT, now that there is not only a sequel hanging over my head but also a film adaptation I must get my hands on it immediately.

The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter—And How to Make the Most of Them Now by Meg Jay

Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter And How To Make The Most Of Them  Now: Jay, Meg: 9780446561754: Amazon.com: Books
The Defining Decade

So, I’m excited to read this one for different reasons than the above. I have an interesting relationship with self-help books, but that’s for another time. I think this book is going to be a mountain of mixed feelings for me based on my personal beliefs about one’s twenties and I hope I’m wrong about my initial impression. Wish me luck!
