Top Ten Tuesday : 2021 Releases I Was Excited to Read But Didn’t Get To


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is:

2021 Releases I Was Excited to Read But Didn’t Get To

I actually did a very similar post just before Christmas but the theme today gives me the opportunity to highlight a few more books that I didn’t manage to get to.  I know, I am suitably ashamed.  I tried to read them all but my over enthusiastic optimism of wanting far too many books got the better of me I’m  afraid. Plus, last year was definitely a bit of a write off for me and my blogging and reading suffered as a result.  Hopefully, I can catch up with some of these books this year in fact I have a couple of ideas for challenges that I think some of these books will be perfect for:

Game Changer by Neal Shusterman


Unsettled Ground by Claire Fuller


The Broken God by Gareth Hanrahan


The 22 Murders of Madison May by Max Barry


Spirits of Vengeance (A Mortal Techniques novel) by Rob J Hayes

Spirits of

Given to Darkness by Phil Williams


The Infernal Riddle of Thomas Peach by Jas Treadwell


I shot the Devil by Ruth McIver


The House of Dust by Noah Broyles


Last Girl Ghosted by Lisa Unger

    This is a fantastic list! I especially can’t wait to get ahold of The 22 Murders of Madison May!

      I hope you manage to grab a copy and love it.

        That would be great.. I really don’t think I’ll have any trouble enjoying it, thanks!

    I fancied reading The Infernal Riddle of Thomas Peach too. I hadn’t heard of The 22 Murders of Madison May but the title alone appeals and makes me want to know more 😀

    I could easily make two ot three of these posts, lol. I’m very curious about The House of Dust.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Talk about good intentions! Yes, I’m very curious about that one too.

    The only one I’ve read here is Game Changer — I liked it, but wouldn’t say it’s a must read. I really like the cover for Unsettled Ground, but can’t say I’m familiar with any of these. Good luck if you decide to read them!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Okay, that’s good to know – maybe nudge that down the list a little then 😀

    I also still need to read Game Changer! I hope you will get to al of these!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I thought so too – and look how that turned out. Ahh, I need more time.

    Madison May- I remember seeing that around and I never got to it!

    It wasn’t pictured, but THE BROKEN GOD is on my list of “Missed 2021 Reads,” too.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well there you go – it’s good to be in company yes?
      Lynn 😀

      • aquavenatus

        Yes. TBH I was nervous about my post. I’m not saying it’s a good thing, but I’m glad I’m not the only one who knows they have a huge TBR pile to read through.

    Ooo there several books I haven’t heard of on your list!! Exciting! I also want to check out The 22 Murders of Madison May 😊

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I had high hopes for that one – disappointed with myself really for not managing to fit it in.
      Lynn 😀
