Hyped 2021 Releases: will I read them? should I read them?

Hi everyone! I share a few posts liked this in 2020, I had so much fun putting them together and I’m not sure why I stopped, but now they are back. The idea is that I’ll tell you whether I’m planning to read the hyped releases on this list or if I’m not plannig to read them, and I’m hoping you’ll tell me if maybe there’s a book that I’m not planning to read but that you think I should. Also, I would love to know if you enjoyed or didn’t enjoy one of the book I’m planning to read.

The books I included on this post are books released between August and October 2021 that I haven’t read but that I have heard a lot of people talk about and that already have over 1000 ratings on Goodreads. Also, I only chose books that are not a sequels or companion novels to books that I read before because it’s very likely that I’ll read those books.

The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling

Release date: September 28, 2021

I’m on the fence about this one, I had never heard about this book until it came out and suddenly everyone was reading it. I immediately added it on goodreads because everyone was loving it but there’s something about it that makes me think I won’t like it. Mainly because I struggle with books about second-chance romances, I either love them or dislike them.

The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

Release date: September 14th 2021

I’m for sure reading this, all the romance booktububers and bloggers that I trust have LOVED this, so I’m like 99.9% certain that I will enjoy it. Also, the whole grumpy/sunshine dynamic is one I love in books and I have heard this is really steamy, which is always a plus. I would be extremely shocked if I ended up not liking this.

Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune

Release date: September 21st 2021 

I’m nervious to read this, but I still think I’ll give it a chance. I LOVED The House in the Cerulean Sea, it was one of my favorite books of last year, so of course Under the Whispering Door was a highly anticipated release for me. Nonetheless, I haven’t heard the first person I follow and trust say they loved this, from what I have seen people either didn’t like it or thougth it was just ok.

Battle Royal by Lucy Parker

Release date:  August 17th 2021

I’ll definitely read it. Not only does this book sound incredible, but I also LOVED Headliners, which is another book by Lucy Parker. Besides that, this includes the grumpy meets sushine and rivals to lovers tropes, which are two of my favorites.

The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina by Zoraida Córdova

Release date:  September 7th 2021 

I’m going to read it. I added this book to my tbr since it was announced because I have loved other books by Zoraida Córdova, but it didn’t sound like the type of book I enjoyed so it wasn’t high on my priority list. Nonetheless, so many people are reading this and loving it, so I’m excited to give it a chance. Also, I have found out more about this book now that it’s out and I’m really intrigued.

Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney

56597885

Release date:  September 7th 2021

I don’t think I’ll read this. I keep hearing about Sally Rooney’s books, people seem to either love them or hate them, and I have a feeling that I will be on the hate them camp based on what I have heard about them. I’m still a little tempted for the chance that I might end up loving them.

Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty

56143578

Release date: September 14th 2021

I don’t know if I’ll read this. It sounds really good but I don’t often read domestic thrillers, even if they sound interesting I never end up picking them up. But at the same time, when I do pick them up I usually end up enjoy them, which was the case with Big Little Lies. So I think I’d probably enjoy this book but I don’t think I’ll have the motivation to pick it up anytime soon.

My Heart is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones

55711617

Release date: August 31st 2021 

I don’t think I’ll read this. I thought this book sounded really good when I first heard about it and everyone seemed so excited for it that I was getting excited too. But after its release, most people are saying this book is really boring and it doens’t live up to its great concept and that is making me really scared of reading it. Especially since I read a Stephen Graham Jones novella and didn’t like it that much and I dfn’ed one of his books.

Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney

56269064

Release date: September 7th 2021

I’m nervous about this one, but I’m leaning towards reading it. As I said before, I don’t often read domestic thrillers, nonetheless, this sounds like an isolated mystery and those are my favorite kind of mystery, so I’m intrigued. Also, I have heard so many good things about it.

Out of the books I’m not planning to read, is there any that you think I should pick up?

Out of the books I’m planning to read, , is there any that I should prioritize or maybe one you wouldn’t recommend?

  1. The Ex Hex seemed to come out of nowhere! I hadn’t heard of it until after it had came out either, but I am reading it now and really loving it. I also have no interest in Sally Rooney’s books, I feel like I would also be in the hate camp

    Liked by 1 person

  2. I read the love hypothesis and the ex hex. They are great romantic reads. Very light and relaxing. As for normal people.. i saw the tv show which was pretty great. I heard that the book is not as good but I haven’t read it, so can’t say for sure.
