It’s Top Five Tuesday which is hosted by Meeghan Reads, every week we’re given a book related topic and we choose our top five! This week we’re looking ahead to see which 2021 releases we’re looking forward to.
Lore by Alexandra Bracken – January 2021
“Every seven years the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the Earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.”
Girl A by Abigail Dean – February 2021
“Lexie Grace doesn’t want to think about her family. She doesn’t want to think about her parents’ house of horrors. And she doesn’t want to think about her identity as Girl A: the girl who escaped. When her mother dies in prison and leaves Lex and her siblings the family home, she can’t run from her past any longer. Together with her sister Evie, Lexie intends to turn the house of horrors into a force for good.”
The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner – March 2021
“A female apothecary dispenses poisons to liberate women from the men who have wronged them – setting three lives across centuries on a dangerous collision course. Rule 1: The poison must never be used to harm another woman. Rule 2: The name of the murderer and her victim must be recorded in the apothecary’s register.”
Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir – May 2021
“Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate last chance mission and if he fails humanity and the Earth itself will perish. Except right now he doesn’t know that. He doesn’t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it.”
Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard – May 2021
“Who is left when the heroes fall? Corayne lives at the end of the world. Year after year, she watches her pirate mother sail away to adventures she’ll never share. So when a mysterious immortal and deadly assassin appears on Corayne’s doorstep telling her she is the last member of a dying bloodline, and the only one who can save the world, she seizes the chance to have her own adventure.”
The Winds of Winter by George R.R. Martin – ????
