Angie's 2021 Must Be Mine

 It's like I don't want to curse anything by saying too much about my hopes for 2021. But I have zero problem talking about the upcoming books I'm excited to read. And so here are my most anticipated novels of 2021:







And no covers yet on these, but I'm looking forward to them just the same:

Neverland by Meagan Spooner

Subtle Blood by K.J. Charles

Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas

Which titles are on your list?

  1. My list for 2021 has been so tiny, I was looking forward to your list. :) I've just made my list much larger. For the Wolf sounds so good! I'm curious about Anne in Manhattan. I may have to give it a try, but Anne of Green Gables retellings usually fall flat for me and I know it's because the original has so much nostalgia wrapped up in it that nothing can possibly touch it.

    1. Oh, good! I'm glad, Misti. Doesn't For the Wolf look great? And yeah, Anne of Manhattan could go either way I'm sure. I haven't read very many Green Gables retellings, but I can see them falling flat easily. Any titles on your list that I should know about?

  2. This list has added to mine! I am looking forward to the new Nalini Singh thriller Quiet in Her Bones, as thrillers and mysteries seemed to interest me more lately. The Forest of Stolen Girls by June Hur, the third book in Diana Peterfreund's Clue series (listening to the audio), and Chaos on Catnet for others in the genre. I am looking forward to Aiden Thomas' next book Lost in the Never Woods. The next Silvia Moreno-Garcia novella and the releases of her out of print books with new edits are also on my list. I'm excited for the year. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I really need to expand my Nalini Singh reading by starting the Psy-Changeling series. And I am in the middle of Diana Peterfreund's first Clue novel right now and really enjoying it! Thank you so much for sharing what you're looking forward to. I love hearing it and adding titles to my TBR.

  3. After reading Boyfriend Material on your recommendation (I saw it on your Best of 2020 list) and really really loving it, I'm greatly looking forward to Alexis Hall's next - 'Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake'!! With Lucy Parker's Battle Royal, I'm very excited for upcoming romantic comedies by favorite authors set at baking reality tv shows.

    I wanted to thank you for your reviews and recommendations. They've led me to discover many newly-beloved books that have become old friends during this interminable time. Without you, I wouldn't have met Eugenides or Ronan or Baz or Quincy St. Claire or Kell or Charlotte Holmes or so many other characters that are now very close to my heart. Thank you!

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With  anyone.  But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to  reread . This has (and I am not exaggerating) never happened to me before  in my life.  I know it happens frequently to most everyone. And I have certainly always been a mood reader. It's not in any way uncommon for me to drift from book to book, from shelf to shelf in my library, until I land upon the right thing. But that drifting tends to occur over the course of a few hours. Not ever does it occur over the course of a few days or, God forbid, weeks.  I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, yes, I am fully aware of where this problem likely rates on the triviality scale in the current scheme of

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Bibliocrack Review | Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Since I thought I'd start with the two most egregious reviewing gaps, you get Wayward Son next. I hope this is agreeable to all and sundry. And let's just agree not to pull any punches, shall we? I'll start by admitting that this book wrecked my life. To be clear, I am not complaining. It's just that it had been a long time, yeah? A long time since  Carry On came out. Just such a very long time since I'd been in the company of these two. And their crew. And I thought I was ready. Don't I always? Must remember to learn from past mistakes. But more than that, I wasn't thinking about the fact that of course Rainbow Rowell would create nothing less than the sequel that would naturally follow the events at the end of Carry On. Which is to say a sequel that would hurt . Because everything about what happened to Simon Snow from the beginning of his life to his graduation from Watford was designed to damage. With the shining exceptions of Penny and Baz. And so th
