21 Books I Want to Read in 2021

Can you believe it’s mid-December already? I feel like this month is going by quicker than most, which is saying something for 2020. Most months lasted at least a year, right? I’m sorta glad for it though, not only because I’m ready for a new year, but because I’ve had my Christmas shopping done for weeks and I can’t wait to give out the gifts I got people!

I’ve also been doing pretty well on reading, which I’m happy for because I had a slump that lasted from August to early November. Thanks to that, I didn’t get around to reading as many books as I wanted to this year, so I’m taking this post to plot out what books I would really like to get around to reading next year. These are going to be books that I’ve had on my TBR for a while, including  2020 releases, as opposed to upcoming 2021 releases… I’ll do a separate post for that.

It shouldn’t be a problem for me to get to these books, as long as I don’t hit a large reading slump again. Hopefully, as a mood reader, I’ll also be in the mood to read all of these!

What books do you want to get to off your TBR next year?

    I noticed a couple books with Paris in the title, one with Chocolate also. A humble suggestion of a book that might interest you: “Simone LaFray and the Chocolatiers’ Ball” by S.P. O’Farrell. I’m reading it and really enjoying it. The book is YA (Simone is a 12-year-old spy), and the story is set in Paris.

    Great list! I was actually gifted The Invisible
    library series years ago, but I’ve still never read it 🤦‍♀️. That should be in my 21 TBR as well! 😂 By the way, I love your blog and I nominated you for a book award if you have time to do it! ❤️
