Top Ten Tuesday – 2021 Releases I Was Excited to Read But Didn’t Get To


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Most Recent Additions to 2021 Releases I Was Excited to Read But Didn’t Get To. I’m forever behind on new releases I want to read so I could probably easily do a list three times this long, but I restrained myself and picked ten I truly wished I could have squeezed in last year.

    I accidentally ended up with two special editions of Empire of the Vampire so I made myself read it while it was still being talked about…otherwise it’s so chunky I would have probably put it off forever. I did like it but I always think long books should be shorter!

    Empire of the Vampire was such a beast of a book but its one I’m glad I was able to read last year – I look forward to your thoughts on it if/when you read it!

    Here’s To Us is also a book I haven’t read yet, though I really want to! And while I’m not usually into thrillers, I do want to try Survive The Night. Hope you’ll enjoy all of these when you get to them!

    My audio hold for The Guncle just came up on Overdrive this morning and I pushed back the hold on it… again. I don’t know if I’ve lost interest or if I’m just not in the mood. Maybe we’ll both get to it soon!

    I read half of those books, and I vote yes for them. Seriously, Guncle, Death, Float Plan, Bridesmaid, and Wild Light were all 4.5-5 stars for me. So good! I heard amazing things about the Kristoff book too.

    I really had hoped to get to THE LADIES OF THE SECRET CIRCUS this past year but am going to make it a priority to read it this year. Six Crimson Cranes is another one I really want to read. I hope you get a chance to read these!

    You’ll Be the Death of Me- SAME! I was going to read it the hot minute it came out and I still haven’t!

    Survive the Night was recommended to me also.
