Top Ten Tuesday: Don't Let the Door Hit You on the Way Out, 2020!

This week's TTT topic is another great one: Top Ten Questions I Would Ask My Favorite Authors.  Once again, though, my mind is drawing a complete blank.  I think it's been melted completely away by the hellish heat we've been having over the last couple weeks.  The Phoenix area is having its hottest summer on record right now because, you know, 2020.   All I can say is thank goodness for air conditioning.  So, since we're all ready to say goodbye to this crazy year, I decided to use this week's TTT list to look ahead at some of the great reads that are coming in 2021.  Get excited, readers!

If you're not familiar with TTT by now, you can get all the details from Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

Top Ten 2021 Releases I Want to Read NOW:

1.  The Drowning Kind by Jennifer McMahon (coming April 6, 2021)—I love McMahon's creepy novels and her newest sounds like another compelling read.  It concerns a woman whose bi-polar sister drowns in the pool at their grandmother's estate.  As she looks deeper into the incident, she finds that her sister was researching their family history, which is much darker than anyone ever realized ... I have an e-ARC of The Drowning Kind, so I'm definitely going to read it soon.  Can't wait.

2.  What's Worth Keeping by Kaya McLaren (coming January 19, 2021)—This contemporary deals with three people in need of hope and healing.  Can they find it in an ancient Washington State forest?  I was born and raised in Washington, so I'm excited to "visit" my beautiful Motherland, even if it's just in fiction.

3.  Every Last Fear by Alex Finlay (coming March 2, 2021)—Several members of a family die while vacationing in Mexico, an event that re-opens the wounds caused by another shocking incident involving the same family.  One of its last remaining members embarks on a journey to uncover the truth about both events.  I'm always up for an intriguing psychological thriller, so I'm definitely all in for this one!

4.  The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah (coming February 9, 2021)—Hannah's newest sounds like another blockbuster.  I can't wait to delve in!  The Depression-era novel is about a woman who must make the agonizing choice between trying to keep her Texas homestead alive or risking everything to remake her life in California.

5.  The Nature of Fragile Things by Susan Meissner (coming February 2, 2021)—Another historical, this one focuses on the epic earthquake that devastated San Francisco in 1906.  It features a mail-order bride whose dreams of a brighter future in California are being threatened by secrets and lies.  Then, the ground starts to tremble ...

6.  The Survivors by Jane Harper (coming February 2, 2021)—Shocking family secrets come floating to the surface after a body is discovered on the beach in a struggling oceanside town.  I'm a big Harper fan, so I'm excited for her newest.

7.  The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner (coming March 2, 2021)—This dual-timeline novel is about a modern-day woman who discovers the secrets behind a unique 18th Century London apothecary shop that specializes in potions that heal wounds by killing those that inflict them.  Sounds intriguing, doesn't it?

8.  A Splendid Ruin by Megan Chance (coming January 1, 2021)—If you haven't noticed, I love stories about family secrets hidden in mysterious old houses.  This one, which also takes place in 1906 San Francisco, sounds like just the ticket.

9.  Alone by Megan E. Freeman (coming March 16, 2021)—This middle-grade debut concerns a 12-year-old girl who wakes up one day to find herself completely alone in her Colorado town.  With only books and a Rottweiler for companionship, she has to learn to survive in a strange, lonely new world.

10.  The Girl From Shadow Springs by Ellie Cypher (coming February 9, 2021)—Billed as The Revenant meets True Grit, this YA novel is about two teens who have to cross a frozen wasteland to save the ones they love.  Survival stories are my jam, so this one definitely appeals.

From the looks of it, 2021 is going to be a great year for reading!  I've only scratched the surface of the books that will be on offer and I'm already stoked.  Which books are you looking forward to reading in 2021?  I'd truly love to know.  Leave a comment on this post and I will gladly return the favor on your blog.

Happy TTT!
