    Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2021

    Hey friends! I decided that this year I would get back into doing Top Ten Tuesday posts. I used to do them a few years ago, and I really want to get back into it. 

    Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. All you have to do is answer the weekly prompt. This week’s prompt is Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2021. Enjoy!

    January 2021 TBR

    Hey friends! This year I’m going to really try and find a format of TBR and Wrap Up posts that works for me, and actually post them monthly. In January I really want to focus on finishing some of the series I started in 2020, so I’ve picked 2 to focus on. All my options are large fantasy series, so I didn’t want to overwhelm myself by trying to read too many. I also have a few other books I want to get to this month, some review copies and audiobooks. 

    Without further ado, here are the books I plan to read this month. Let me know in the comments if you have read any of them, and what you’re planning to read this month!
