20 Exciting Books Hitting the Shelves in February 2021 | Anticipated Reads

New month, new list of Anticipated Reads! It’s my goal in life to personally destroy your TBRs and 2021 continues to bring amazing new releases that I need to find time to read. (Can I read while sleeping?) Today I’m bringing 21 February releases to your radar.


Think of the Reader Voracious Anticipated Reads as a list of noteworthy books coming up for publication. These posts focus on books from my preferred genres (fantasy, science fiction, mystery/thriller in YA & adult) but are by no means a representation of everything being published. There’s no way I will be able to get to all of these books personally, but I think my readers would be interested in them so I want to share and boost.

22 Exciting Books Hitting the Shelves in January 2021 | Anticipated Reads

With 2021’s arrival comes my monthly Anticipated Reads post where I highlight some of the interesting books hitting bookshelves. This month we are especially blessed with lots of reading material, and I’m here to highlight 22 releases for January 2021!

8 Anticipated Reads Hitting the Shelves in November & December 2020

I can’t believe it’s almost November and time for another edition of Anticipated Reads! Just like last year, November and December are a bit on the lighter side release-wise so I’ve combined them into this post. (I’d recommending getting your pre-orders in for these early, especially for gifts, because of supply-chain issues relating to COVID-19.)

Now more than ever, authors need our support as the publishing industry has been severely impacted by event and convention cancellations. If you see any books that look interesting, I encourage you to talk about them on your socials, add to Goodreads shelves, submit requests to your libraries if you have one, or buy if you’re financially able!

📝 In case you are wondering how I manage to keep track of upcoming releases and choose the books I’m excited to highlight monthly, check out my Edelweiss 2.0 Guide!

14 Book Releases Hitting the Shelves in October 2020

It’s been a few months since I’ve done an Anticipated Reads list, and I have to admit that it’s nice to be back! However, before going through the upcoming releases on Edelweiss I only had two anticipated books for October… and now it’s 14. Oops. I personally look forward to buy ALL the books despite reading basically NONE of them. I am not responsible for overflowing TBRs as a result of this post.
