Most Anticipated Book Releases of 2021 (Science Fiction)

Most Anticipated Book Releases of 2021 (Science Fiction)

Bookworms, bookworms!

I decided to do something different this time around. I thought, why not make separate posts for the Fantasy and Science Fiction releases this year? I mean, sometimes the distinction is hazy but sometimes, for the sake of my sanity, we make do with what we have, okay? I have many anticipated releases this year however there’s no guarantee that I will be able to get to them considering my overall reading plans but I am still excited for these because they sound absolutely cool!

So, here are the science fiction releases that excite me to bits and pieces! Mind you, these are mostly covering half the year as the rest of the list for the other half of the year might come later with some solid-ish release dates. So, yay for another post to look forward to in future!

Let’s go!

All the release dates are probably tentative unless the publishing company has stated so firmly, so take these with a grain of salt or to be safe, take two grains of salt. Are there any releases that you are excited for but aren’t on the list? Tell me about them! There are two big releases I am not talking about here because I haven’t really made any progress in the series or even started the series, so I am not including those because I am not really anticipating them? Does that make sense? Those two are The Galaxy, and the Ground Within by Becky Chambers and Leviathan Falls by James S. A. Corey.

P. S. All books are GoodReads linked if you care to add them to your tbr list or if you want to read the synopsis to see if tickles your fancy.
