Five books I want to read in 2021

Do you have books you know you’ll want to read in 2021?

Connect Five Friday is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. (The hashtag is #connect5books) This is a fun and creative way to think about my books and reading. Check out Kathyrn’s blog and link up your Friday Five!

The five book-related items need to connect in some way, but each person who participates can decide for themselves what the book subject and connection is. For example, you could write about five books read last year or five books you want to read. It could even be favorite bookstores or five movies made from books.

This week I’m talking about five books published in 2021 I’m looking forward to reading when they’re published. I know I’ll have many more books I’m excited to read in 2021. I just haven’t found out about them yet.


A Stranger in Town

by Kelley Armstrong

Rockton #6

Publication date: Feb 2

I love this mystery series. It got me reading Kelley Armstrong again after a few years away from her books. And I’m loving the books she writes.

Wild Sign

by Patricia Briggs

Alpha and Omega #6

Publication date: Mar 16

Patricia Briggs is such a good author. I love the two intertwined urban fantasy series she’s writing–The Mercy Thompson series and the Alpha and Omega series. I really like the world and the fantasy creature Ms. Briggs creates.

Dial A for Aunties

by Jesse Q. Sutanto

Publishing date: Apr 27

I love the cover! And this sounds like such a fun book. This debut book shows us Chinese-Indonesian culture which I’m so looking forward to, but I’m also reminded of my husband’s Mom and her two sisters. They called themselves the Dolly Sisters! And he has three sisters who call themselves the Sisters Moving Company when they come and help us all move.

Fugitive Telemetry

by Martha Wells

Murderbot #6

Publication date: Apr 27

I love this series. Murderbot is such a “human” character. I also enjoy the adventure in these science fiction stories.

Project Hail Mary

by Andy Weir

Publication date: May 4

I loved reading The Martian and Artemis. Those two books are science fiction, but very different from each other. Project Hail Mary sounds like it will be another different type of story. I like it when an author writes different kinds of books.

What books are you looking forward to in 2021?
