Top Ten Tuesday

The Winter 2020-2021 Book Releases I’m Excited About The Most

20201215 Winter releases

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s topic is about books on our winter 2020-2021 TBR, and as usual, I am focusing on the new book releases coming out this winter that I’m really looking forward to, instead of the hundred backlist titles I still need to get to because that’s just how I do it…

So without further ado, let’s get into my most anticipated upcoming winter releases!

A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir

release date: December 1st 2020
I just finished my (re)read of the first 3 books in this series and am now starting the final book, A Sky Beyond The Storm. I have a feeling there will be tears!

Lore by Alexandra Bracken

release date: January 5th 2021
This book had me a Greek mythology retelling. And that gorgeous cover. What more does one need, really?

Ten Rules for Faking It by Sophie Sullivan

release date: January 5th 2021
An office romance set at a radio station sounds so good!

We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal

release date: January 19th 2021
I loved the first book in this beautiful story inspired by Arabian Nights and I am eagerly awaiting the sequel (and finale).

Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell

release date: February 2nd 2021

This debut is a queer romantic space opera in which a scandal-prone prince and a dutiful scholar are forced into a political marriage and are trying to prevent an interplanetary war. I’m thinking it sounds like the perfect mix between Red White and Royal Blue and Bonds of Brass, two of my faves!

Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon

release date: February 2nd 2021

It’s an adult rom-com by Sandhya Menon, and it’s about two rival app developers, so of course this is high on my want-to-read list!

The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna

release date: February 9th 2021
An epic high fantasy inspired by Ancient West-Africa and an empoweringly feminist battle against a patriarchal society = yes please

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

release date: February 16th 2021
Even if I’m not the biggest Nesta fan, I just can’t say no to another Sarah J. Maas book, okay?

Perfect on Paper by Sophie Gonzales

release date: March 9th 2021
This is a YA contemporary about a bisexual girl who gives anonymous love advice to her classmates and then gets hired by the hot guy to help him get his ex back. Sounds so good, right?

  1. Oh wow- that Bracken cover is AMAZING.

    1. It is such a gorgeous cover indeed!

  2. Very curious about The Winter’s Orbit. Recently heard about it and it sounds really good!

    1. Winter’s Orbit does sound so good, I can’t wait to read it 🙂

  3. Great list! Winter’s Orbit sounds so good and I’ve been seeing brilliant reviews for The Gilded Ones. I really need to cross We Hunt the Flame off my TBR, too. Happy reading!

    1. Thanks! Winter’s Orbit is one of my most anticipated reads for sure and the rave reviews for The Gilded Ones definitely got me so excited to read it!

  4. I’m also looking forward to The Gilded Ones and Perfect on Paper! Both sounds amazing <3

    Winter’s Orbit sounds intriguing!


    1. It does, I can’t wait to read it!

  8. I’m looking forward to Lore too, I love Greek mythology. I’m also looking forward to A Court of Silver Flames, but I do have to catch up on the previous book and novella in the series first!
    My TTT:

    1. Lore does sound so good! I was also thinking I needed a re-read of the series so far before starting A Court of Silver Flames, my memory’s getting hazy 🙂

      1. I know, I really wish that all series books came with recaps, it can be more than a year before we get the next book in the series sometimes, do they know how many books we’ve read in that time!

  9. I’m looking forward to Lore and A Court of SIlver Flames too!

    1. Greek mythology retellings and SJM for the win 😉

  10. I so want The Gilded Ones on my list as well.

    1. The Gilded Ones sounds so good indeed!

  11. I love your list! I’m so, so excited for Lore too!! 🙂

    1. Lore sounds so good!

  12. A Court of Silver Flames!!! Can’t wait!!!

    1. Definitely can’t wait to revisit this world!

  13. Poinsettia says:

    1. Thanks!

  14. I’m excited for so many of these. I also can’t believe I forgot all about A Court of Silver Flames. That’s a must read!

    1. It’ll definitely be an exciting winter with all these new releases 🙂
