As I reflect on my 2020 reading accomplishments, I can't help but to anticipate what 2021 will bring.
The first month of the year really seems to set the reading tone for the next few month of the year for a lot of readers. (See my post about the very super important task of choosing the Goodreads Reading Challenge color.)
For me, I'm looking to get back to the basics; I want to read more novels that make me feel happy, even if just for a day. It's really important to me to utilize my leisure reading to nurture myself and I feel like I'm not alone in that!
That said, there are many new books that will be hitting shelves in the new year. I'm happy to share with you the most highly anticipated reads so that you can begin to organize your 2021 TBR pile. Maybe even put some on hold at your local library or preorder them from your favorite book shop!
1) Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas
Angie Thomas is back again with a book that takes place before the events of The Hate U Give. In Concrete Rose, readers get access to an entire novel devoted to Maverick's backstory. Mav is balancing his duties as a student, a member of a gang, and as a new father. These commitments do not come without challenges, and Maverick is tested as he tries to turn his life toward the straight and narrow.
