2021 Bookish Hype Train

2020 was trash, but brought us many, many gifts in terms of books that came out. Here are the presents coming to us in 2021 that I’m personally far too excited to read.

The books are in order of release. Since I did a top 40 list of faves for 2020, figured I do a top 40 for 2021. All links go to Bookshop.org for easier pre-ordering.
