My Highly Anticipated 2021 YA Book Releases

So this is going to be my second post of the year never mind that it’s basically April but you know what I’m trying. We all deserve a break in 2021, am I right? Also there are no words to describe how much I hate the new WordPress editor like in addition to being forced over to blocks now the font is weird and I’m tired okay bring back 2018 WordPress.

Anyways, in addition to blogging less I’m also reading less this year because ya girl is busy! But there are still some books that I know are coming out that I can’t wait to read! (Also some that have already come out… but they’re still 2021 releases that I haven’t read yet so they’re going on the list).

  1. Great list! I’m currently enjoying You Have a Match, I hope you enjoy it too. Lost in the Never Woods is on my TBR as well. And Stacey Lee came out with another book? I need to read it.

  2. Ahh sisters and STEM sound like the perfect combination, I’m so excited for The Ones We’re Meant to Find as well… oh my goodness Our Violent Ends, I don’t think I’m emotionally prepared to read it, especially after that title… but ugh I need a resolution after that cliffhanger! Ooh thank you for now putting Luck of the Titanic in my radar… Great list, Kay! 💖💖

  3. This is such an awesome list! There are so many on here that I’m also super keen to read and can’t wait to get my hands on 😍 I’m especially keen for The Ones We’re Meant to Find (that cover tho!) and Malice. XOXO looks adorable as well. I hope all of these live up to your expectations, Kay!

  5. I still haven’t read These Violent Delights 🙈 Counting Down with You has an amazing anxiety rep too! I’ll start Kisses and Croissants in a day or two but I feel like it’s a perfect lighthearted book to welcome spring.

  6. I want to read The Ones We’re Meant to Find! I keep seeing that one everywhere! I haven’t read her other book though. I’ll have to check it out. Lost in the Never Woods has such a pretty cover! I know nothing about it but now I want to look into it lol I have never heard of Malice but OMG THAT PREMISE. I need.

  7. ahh, i am so excited for counting down with you too! fake dating is literally my favorite trope! i didn’t know much about the other side of perfect, but i love seeing athletes and theatre kids in books, so i definitely will keep an eye out for that one!

    i think my most anticipated release for the rest of 2020 has to be the sequel to ari & dante. it’s my favorite book of all times and i am so hyped the sequel will be coming out during my birthday month! the best present ever!
