Books I Want to Read in 2021

Hey guys! Today I am going to be talking about some books that I want to read in 2021, mainly because I didn’t get round to them this year due to me having an uncontrollable TBR pile. I would try and sneak some of these in now, but let’s be honest it’s not going to happen. They’ll definitely be on my radar for next year though!

One of Us Is Next by Karen M. McManus: I was so excited for this to be released and I’m gutted that I didn’t get round to reading it. If you’re not familiar with One of Us Is Next, it’s the sequel to One of Us Is Lying, which is about five students going to detention, but only four of them leaving alive. I was going to read One of Us Is Next but I want to reread the first book before I do that, as I don’t remember too much of the plot. I know the sequel is set a year after the events that happened in One of Us Is Lying, so it does still tie into the first book. I would love to read it early next year!

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo: I keep putting this one off despite really wanting to read it as I want to read the Six of Crows duology first. Everyone raves about those books but I wasn’t that keen on Six of Crows, hence why it’s taking me so long to read Crooked Kingdom and King of Scars. If you’ve read this duology and enjoyed it, please let me know because I need someone to encourage me to read it!

Truthwitch & Windwitch by Susan Dennard: This series sounds so interesting and I’ve heard great things about it. I don’t know much about the series apart from the first book follows Safi who’s a rare Truthwitch. She can discern truth from lies and that makes her a very powerful asset. I saw a few people pick up these books for the first time last year only to end up loving them, so I’m hopeful that I can do the same next year!

Queen of Ruin by Tracy Banghart: I don’t know why I’ve been putting this one off, especially since I loved the first book. I didn’t expect to love it so much and I am looking forward to reading the second one but I may need to reread Grace and Fury first. The story is about sisters Serina and Nomi who both end up in impossible situations – a far cry from the lives they imagined. One ends up in the palace, the other on an island prison where women must fight to survive. I loved the comparisons between the palace and the prison, and how resilient the sisters were despite the dangers they faced. I hope Queen of Ruin is just as good!

Renegades by Marissa Meyer: This sounds like one I will absolutely love and I cannot wait to read it. I don’t know much about the story, other than that it’s about superheroes and the two main characters being on completely different sides: one craves vengeance, while the other wants justice. It sounds perfect. I just hope it lives up to the hype.

Hopefully I can get round to reading these books in 2021! What books do you want to read? Feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading.

    These are some great picks! I loved King of Scars, and I hope you do too!!

    The Renegades trilogy is a LOT of fun! It’s a little soap-y and silly at times, but the pacing and action make it such an exciting read. I finished each installment with such a big smile! (also, now you won’t have to wait a year in between the cliffhangers, hehe!!)

    happy reading!! 🙂

      Ooh that’s so good to hear! I’m definitely looking forward to reading Renegades now 😀 I think cliffhanger endings is why I’ve started waiting for an entire series to be published before I read it haha xD

    I hope you manage to get to all of these! I’ve only managed to read One of Us is Lying (good YA thriller fun), King of Scars and Renegades but I enjoyed them all. KoS wasn’t my favorite Grishaverse story, but the characterization of Nikolai and Zoya is pretty fire. And Renegades was really fun. I think you’d really enjoy it if you’re a fan of the superhero/anti-hero genre!
