Most Anticipated Releases of 2021: January to March

Happy 2021! As we get ready to begin another year, it’s time to look ahead to the Science Fiction and Fantasy reads I’m most excited about. Not only is it fun to organize my reading and to make lists, they also have the added benefit of focusing my attention to the highly anticipated releases that I’d like to check out. Every quarter I’ll be putting together a post of my “must reads”, and while I’m under no illusions that I’ll be able to read them all, hopefully I can get to most of them (and also put some new books on people’s radars)!

  1. Such a lot of good books to look forward to. I like the look of the Lost Village – hadn’t noticed that one already so will keep my eye out for that one.
    Lynn 😀


  2. Looks like the year is starting off well with plenty of potential reading enjoyment. Looking forward to seeing which you read and how you like them.


  3. So I’ve 2 of the January ones, and 2 of the February and one in March. Can’t wait to read the Becky Chambers one, I’m definitely most excited about that one! There’s a Tchaikovsky novella in March I’d add but otherwise your list is very thorough 🙂


  4. Although I didn’t like Hazel Wood, I am curious about Tales from the Hinterland. When I read Hazel Wood, I was more interested in the fairytales in it.


  5. So many good books! It’s hard not to get overwhelmed looking at such a fantastic list. I’m excited for a lot of these. Hope you get the chance to enjoy some of these books. I think I’m most looking forward to The Mask of Mirrors, which I’ll hopefully be reading soon. 🙂


    • I know, I love these lists because it gets me so excited to see all these high anticipated releases all laid out like that, but also can’t deny a feeling of panic and being overwhelmed as well, haha! And Mask of Mirrors is what I’m hoping to pick up next, as soon as I finish my current read 😀

  6. Ah so many amazing sounding books, I hope you love them all!! I so can’t wait to get myself a copy of Tales From The Hinterland as I knew I wanted to read those stories as soon as I read the first book (I still need to read the second 🙈). I’m also super excited for Hall of Smoke, Echo Wife, Bone Maker (OMG that sounds incredible) and Witch’s Heart. Although I think I have to wait a little longer than you for those last two as I believe the UK dates are slightly later.
