Anticipated Reads 2021

More New & Wonderful Books To Add Your TBR <3 | Anticipated Reads of July 2021

We are 6 months into 2021 – and I still can’t believe this unbelievably traumatising year has actually been flying away like it’s on space travel and needs to reach another inhabitable planet to save the freaking human race!

But on the bright side; I have been actually getting through the previous months anticipated reads – slowly but surely, what is not helping the whole new list of books cropping up and me adding them to my reading TBR *grins*

As always, this is not the total list of all the books being released in this particular month; these are the books that I am looking forward in this month – and maybe just maybe update, the list with my review links at the end of the month, so that ya’ll can access to the reviews without any issues (I know.. I know! I have a whole lot of reviews to be updated, and I will be doing that, hopefully soon!)

If you would like to, you can also check out the previous months – January 2021, February 2021, March 2021, April 2021, May 2021 and June 2021 Anticipated Reads as well.

SIX CRIMSION CRANES (Six Crimson Cranes #1) by Elizabeth Lim

Genres: East Asian Rep/High Fantasy/Mythological Retelling

Releases on: 6th July 2021

Okay. Lets see – Dragons, East Asian Rep, Magic and what looks to be found family – and I already have an early copy of it, that I am really hoping I will read before the release date.

And I have actually read amazing reviews of this newest duology by the author of Spin The Dawn Duology and when your favourite bookstagrammers recommend with everything they have; you know you have a winner on your hand.

Genres: Thriller/Mystery?

Releases on: 6th July 2021

What would you do, if as a writer you can’t write anymore? Would you actually steal someone else’s manuscript and pass it off as you own?

What if that someone else came back, not for the fame but to blackmail you? What if the book *you* wrote implicates you in a cold case of murder?

Well.. You should read this thriller and find out and here’s to hoping it will actually exceed my expectations (not my thrillers recently have!)

WHAT IF YOU & ME (Say Everything #2) by Roni Loren

Genres: Adult Fiction/Romance/Mental Health Rep

Releases on: 6th April 2021

Roni Loren came to my attention with Yes and I Love You (Read My Review) and has now pretty much cemented my adoration for her, with this sequel (just click on the my review image below to read my blubbering review!).

Andi and Hill have my full adulation – a young woman suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, loves the horror genre and records true crime podcasts while Hill, an ex-firefighter who is on disability and is battling PTSD and Depression.

I really really want to tell you more – but if you are new to the romance genre and love yourself some diverse rep as well written and wonderful emotional connections between two relatable characters; then Roni Loren is the author you need to pick up. Immediately.

OUT OF CHARACTER (True Colors #2) by Annabeth Albert

Genres: Young Adult Romance/LGBTQ+ Rep/Diverse Reads

Releases on: 6th July 2021

I adored Conventionally Yours; it was a surprise audiobook favourite of mine; and I didn’t even realise that there would be a sequel to it. Out of Character, can however be read as a standalone, though there is some easter egg appearances if you have read Conventionally Yours.

Out of Character is adorable enemies to friends to lovers revolving around the nerdvana of games – it is adorable, fun and yet emotional at all the right places (just click on the “my review image” below to read my review!).

THE FALLING by T. J. Newman

Genres: Thriller/Suspense/Mystery/Adult Fiction

Releases on: 13th July 2021

I have a review copy of this thriller – and considering the fact that I have not been able to get on a plane due to the Pandemic; and is the only reason why I have been able to actually even think about picking up this thriller about a pilot who is under blackmail to actually crash the plane. Yikes!

CHINA ROOM by Sunjeev Sahota

Genres: Indian Literature/Historical Fiction

Releases on: 13th July 2021

I have to expand my horizons – and while not many Indian Fiction catch my eye; the blurb of this book; China Room had me intrigued the moment I read it – a young bride, trying to find the identity of her husband from the three brothers she was married off to with her sisters-in-law in 1929 while in 1999, a young man battles addiction and is now back to his ancestral home.

Two lives intertwined and how – am definitely picking this one up soon!

(P.S. this one has already apparently released in India, though expected publication date is 13th July on Goodreads!)

FLASH FIRE (The Extraordinaries #2) by T. J. Klune

Genres: Fantasy Fiction/Young Adult/LGBTQ+/Superheroes

Releases on: 13th July 2021

The Extraordinaries was one of my surprise favourites of 2020 (Read My Review) – and I was really excited to see where the sequel goes; because that cliffhanger at the end of the book 1 *mind blown*

I have the eARC and I really hope that I can get to it before the release day – or at least within this month!

PRE – ORDER NOW: Amazon | Kindle | Book Depository


Genres: Paranormal/Young Adult/Horror/LGBTQ+

Releases on: 13th July 2021

I don’t really read the horror genre – but I blame Andi Lockley from What If You & Me by Roni Loren – and I just couldn’t resist putting this one on the list because:

  1. Look at that cover!!
  2. A youngster dealing with ghosts on a daily basis
  3. Dealing with racism and school shooting
