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 19: “Trio: A Novel” by William Boyd.
February 2: “The Paris Library” by Janet Skeslien Charles.
February 16: “The English Wife” by Adrienne Chinn.
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!
