Top Ten Tuesday for December 1, 2020 – TCL’s TBR for 2021 ARCs.


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment on her weekly post.

This week the topic is supposed to be “Book Quotes” but I did one like that for September 29th (and I’m not that good at keeping track of quotes) so instead I’m going to do:

2021 Releases on my TBR.

Yes, I know, this is supposed to be the topic for January 5, but I’ve already scheduled a “Best of the Best” post for January 4, and I don’t really like to put up posts on consecutive days. Plus, as you know, I’m in the middle of moving house, so why not schedule something easy, right? Also, I can hardly believe that I’ve already received approval for 19 ARCs for books that are to be released in 2021. Here are the first 10 from this list (links to Goodreads):

January 2: Dean Street Press invited me to read and review two of their new Furrowed Middlebrow books, which are both re-releases.  The two books they invited me to read are: “Rhododendron Pie” (originally published in 1930, which I’ve already begun to read) by Margery Sharp, and “A Pink Front Door” (1959) by Stella Gibbons. I’m not sure if I’ll succeed in reading and reviewing them both before the release date, but I’ll try! These are both authors I’ve heard of, but never read anything by them.

January 5:The Good Doctor of Warsaw” by Elizabeth Gifford.

January 12: Again, there will be two novels released on this day, which are “The Children’s Blizzard” by Melanie Benjamin and “The Charmed Wife” by Olga Grushin.

January 19:Trio: A Novel” by William Boyd.

February 2: The Paris Library” by Janet Skeslien Charles.

February 16:The English Wife” by Adrienne Chinn.

March 2: Another twofer today with “Band of Sisters” by Lauren Willig, and “Lurkers: Stories” by Sandi Tan.

So, it looks like I’m going to be pretty busy in 2021, plus there are another six books coming out in April and one more coming out in June that I’ll be reading and reviewing! As they say, it never rains but it pours!

      1. Those ones are since they’re the ones I’m most excited for but I have a few non fantasy titles that look really good as well. You’ve got me pinned though, I’m pretty addicted to fantasy novels

  1. It looks like you’re going to have a busy start to the year! I received the two Dean Street Press books too. I’ve read and enjoyed other books by Margery Sharp and Stella Gibbons, so I’m looking forward to reading them both. The Paris Library is on my NetGalley shelf too, along with some other ARCs for later in 2021.

  2. I don’t blame you for not wanting to wait! “Looking forward to” posts are some of my favorites since they help keep me up-to-date on which books are coming out soon. It’s always fun to find fun titles to anticipate reading. I have actually read one of these books – THE CHILDREN’S BLIZZARD. It’s sad, but super compelling. I enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy your ARCs!

    Happy TTT!

  3. I’ve already read some of my 2021 ARCs just so they’re not sitting on my NG shelf. I have two more to read, a Karen White book and a Tessa Bailey book. I will probably try to read them before the end of the year.


    1. Oh, I think I have that Karen White book too. Last Night in London, right? That’s coming out in April, which is also a very busy month for me – I have 4 ARCs for that month, and many I didn’t ask for because I’m sure I’ll get too far behind to read and review them before or near to their publication dates.

      1. I randomly picked up one of her books at Borders years ago and have read all of her books since. I still need to read one of her collabs with those authors, though. I only read the first one they did.
