Twenty-One 2021 Reads

This is the latest I've ever done the first post in these annual series. I've pushed it back twice, just because my 2021 TBR shelf is still so small that it was hard to pick the subsection of books I was super excited for. But I finally succeeded in coming up with twenty-one books that are (hopefully) publishing next year.

1. Beyond the Mapped Stars by Rosalyn Eves
Historical fiction! Magic! A fun time all around.

2. Your Life Has Been Delayed by Michelle Mason
Not to flex, but I was still interning at Blooms when they acquired this one, and I got to read a bit of it, and I really enjoyed it! I can't wait to see how much better it's become, with a few rounds of edits. It's sort of a contemporary, and it's a nice, quiet story.

3. My Contrary Mary by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
I'm so glad the Lady Janies are now becoming the Lady Marys. This one is about Mary, Queen of Scots!

4. The Bones of Ruin by Sarah Raughley
More historical fiction with more magic. 

5. Perfectly Parvin by Olivia Abtahi
Cute, fun rom-com with a non-white protagonist.

6. A Taste for Love by Jennifer Yen
A baking competition!!

7. That Way Madness Lies by various authors

8. Better Than the Movies by Lynn Painter
The theme of 2021 is rom-coms.

9. Never Saw You Coming by Erin Hahn
*starts singing "State of Grace"*

10. The Jasmine Project by Meredith Ireland
More rom-com love. Also for fans of Jenny Han's books apparently.

11. Hello, World by Yvonne Woon
Smart girls kick butt.

12. Speak for Yourself by Lana Wood Johnson
Considering I liked Technically, You Started It, I have hopes for this one.

13. Once More with Chutzpah by Haley Neil
Anxiety AND a trip through Israel? Sign me up.

14. You Can Go Your Own Way by Eric Smith
Excuse me while I go blast the Fleetwood Mac song.

15. Anatomy: A Love Story by Dana Schwartz
The theme of this list is basically rom-coms and historical fiction. This is the latter.

16. Our Way Back to Always by Nina Moreno
In the vein of Sarah Dessen and When Harry Met Sally? Okay.

17. Mazie by Melanie Crowder
I love the idea of historical fiction set on Broadway!

18. Made in Korea by Sarah Suk
This one feels so relevant, cause everyone is obsessed with Korean skincare and beauty products these days.

19. Spice Road by Maiya Ibrahim
First true fantasy pick for this list!

20. Darling by K. Ancrum
Peter Pan retellings are often a let-down, but something about this one is super intriguing to me.

21. What's Not to Love by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka
Hate-to-love from everyone's favorite rom-com team.

So there you have it! Twenty-one of the books I'm most looking forward to next year. Cause it's never too early to think about the future. (Especially with how much of 2020 is being lost to COVID-19.)
