2021 Releases I’m Looking Forward to from January to June| #TopTenTuesday 271

Yes hello it is that time of year that we will start drooling over all those upcoming new releases. It is a standard Top Ten Tuesday topic (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) and a good way to keep track of all those new shiney upcoming books.

This post was written at the start of December 2020 and will be rechecked before publishing but I might miss something, and release dates do move around a lot.

Also check out Crini’s Queer SFF Releases of 2021 that she updates throughout the year. And Tammy shared some adult SF books 2021 releases during sci-fi month 2020

  1. Ooh yeah Persephone station sounds great. I like how you broke this out by month. The Chambers one of course is huge. 🙂 And more Murderbot! 2021 should be a good SF year…


  2. Great list, Annemieke! So many of these made my list this week, too – I can’t WAIT for The Witness for the Dead – and I can’t believe I forgot to include the next volume of Heartstopper.


  3. Amari!!! Yeees 😍 I can’t wait for the world to read Amari’s story! I’m also pretty excited about Persephone Station–it sounds so good! Rule of Wolves is a pretty popular title on the lists today too. I hope you enjoy all of these reads 😃


  4. ‘The Galaxy, and the Ground Within’ is my #1 must-read book of the year. Looks like you have a lot of amazing books to look forward to in the next 6 months. Great list!


  5. Super looking forward to more Heartstopper! And Lost in the Never Woods sounds so good too. I’m also looking forward to Winter’s Orbit and Rule of Wolves. Hope you’ll enjoy all of these!
