Most Anticipated Releases of 2021: October to December

Time to look ahead to the Science Fiction and Fantasy reads I’m most excited about in the months of October to December! 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. This year, I decided to try something a little different by posting a list every quarter to make the TBR more manageable. There’s already an impressive tower of books on my to-read pile, 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)!

The last three months of the year are always a bit lighter in terms of releases, which is why November and December are always great for catching up with the books I may have missed earlier in the spring and summer, plus November is also Sci-Fi Month so you’ll probably see me cover more titles than are listed here. That’s why I’ve really tried to cut down on my must-reads this quarter, I promise!

So what are your most anticipated releases for the final quarter of 2021?

  1. Well I see several series I still need to catch up on, and at least three times your workload in December. But I’m still hoping that I can use these next two months to catch up on ARCs I’ve missed from the year before too!

    Otherwise… don’t think I can add much. There are a couple things from series you’re not reading, but… there’s a Tchaikovsky novella (Elder Race) out sometime in November. Maybe that?


  2. I cant believe I forgot about Grave Reservations on my list! Ugh October is killing me, lol. And I guess Jade Legacy changed release dates? I swear it was a December release, or maybe that’s just wishful thinking🤣
