Top 5 Most Anticipated Book Releases of 2021

Last Edited on February 1, 2022 by Sarah Pereira

Since we’re in quarantine, might as well read new books! Today I’ve listed the most anticipated books of 2021 (primarily fantasy lol).

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

Sarah J. Maas, known for her NYT bestselling series Throne of Glass, is now set to be releasing fourth book in her A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

A Court of Silver Flames will follow after the events of A Court of War and Ruin. It will follow Nesta, the sister of Feyre (the protagonist in the prior books) and her struggles after being turned into a high fae against her will. What makes Nesta even more annoyed is her sister’s husband’s second in command: Cassian. As a deadly alliance between the mortal queens begins to form, Nesta will be forced to confront her emotions about Cassian while trying to prevent hell from breaking lose in Prythian.

Kingdom of the Cursed by Kerri Maniscalco

After much praise for Kingdom of the Wicked, it’s only fair I add this book to the list. This book comes October 26, 2021 and is the sequel to Kingdom of the Wicked. Everyone (including me) is super excited for this to come out!

After selling her soul to become Queen of the Wicked, Emilia travels to the Seven Circles with the enigmatic Prince of Wrath, where she’s introduced to a seductive world of vice. She vows to do whatever it takes to avenge her beloved sister, Vittoria… even if that means accepting the hand of the Prince of Pride, the king of demons. The first rule in the court of the Wicked? Trust no one. With back-stabbing princes, luxurious palaces, mysterious party invitations, and conflicting clues about who really killed her twin, Emilia finds herself more alone than ever before. Can she even trust Wrath, her one-time ally in the mortal world… or is he keeping dangerous secrets about his true nature? Emilia will be tested in every way as she seeks a series of magical objects that will unlock the clues of her past and the answers she craves…

Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard

It’s obvious that Red Queen has received a fair amount of criticism. For Realm Breaker though, I’ll give Aveyard the benefit of the doubt. However, with a cover like that, I’m only hoping it lives up to it.

When the heroes have fallen, who will take up the sword? Darkness grows in Allward. So much so that Corayne an-Amarat can sense it, even tucked away in a small coastal town by the sea. But she soon discovers that she is the last of an ancient lineage, the only hope people have to combat the darkness. Being alone though, is something Corayne isn’t willing to do. So, she is joined by a band of unlikely and unwilling rag tag companions. And maybe together they can stand against the vicious opponent, invincible and determined to burn all kingdoms to ash.

The Hawthorne Legacy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Avery Grambs is back at solving puzzles in the Hawthorne Legacy, sequel to The Inheritance Games. Pitched as Cinderella meets Knives Out, the Inheritance Games lived up to its expectations with its cutthroat pace and tension-setting plot. The Hawthorne Legacy will be released September 16, 2021, so mark your calendars!

Heiress Avery Grambs has to pick up the pieces and find the man who might hold the answers to all of her questions – including why Tobias Hawthorne left his entire fortune to Avery, a virtual stranger, rather than to his own daughters or grandsons. Thanks to a DNA test, Avery knows that she’s not a Hawthorne by blood, but clues pile up hinting at a deeper connection to the family than she had ever imagined. As the mystery grows and the plot thickens, Grayson and Jameson, the enigmatic and magnetic Hawthorne grandsons, continue to pull Avery in different directions. And there are threats lurking around every corner, as adversaries emerge who will stop at nothing to see Avery out of the picture – by any means necessary.

Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber

Unfortunately, The Caraval Series came to a wrap in 2019. Luckily, Stephanie Garber has announced that in the fall of 2021 she will release the first book in her new series in the Caraval world that will follow Jack.

Once Upon a Broken Heart also follows Evangeline Fox who recently learns the love of her life is about to marry someone else. As a result, she becomes desperate and contracts the Prince of Hearts for help. The price for his assistance is three kisses. Though soon she realizes he has plans for Evangeline that will end in paradise or tragedy.
