The hottest new books to look out for this year! Posted On 15 January 2021

2021 promises to be a literary gold mine. Here we take a look at the books have got us excited this year…

 

2020 brought us some fantastic books. Whether it was a non-fiction autobiography such as Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey, or the prequel to the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins or something more political such as A Promised Land, the memoirs of Barack Obama, we were never short of great reads throughout. And this year promises even more…

 

The Charmed Wife by Olga Grushin

 

Here is a wildly inventive and thoroughly modern retelling of Cinderella, and what happens after she marries Prince Charming. Spoiler, he’s not so charming after all! This book, Grushin’s fourth novel, promises to be a genre-bending and darkly comic affair.

 

Release date: January 12th

 

A Bright Ray of Darkness by Ethan Hawke

 

Ethan Hawke isn’t just an Oscar-nominated actor and screenwriter. This is his fifth book in which a 32-year-old thespian’s private life is not so private when he is besieged by journalists at every turn. It is about his possible path to personal and professional redemption and portrays the perils and pratfalls of celebrity perfectly.

 

Release date: February 2nd

 

Later by Stephen King

 

Stephen King caught everyone off-guard when he announced a new Hard Case Crime book last year. For his third contribution to the hard-boiled crime novel publisher, King invites us inside the story of a struggling single mother and her son, Jamie. However, as it’s Stephen King, there is a twist. Jamie can see things others can’t, and now an NYPD detective wants his help.

 

Release date: March 2nd

 

Apathy by Jonathan Wheatley

 

Up and coming, British horror writer, Jonathan Wheatley, returns to finish off his Westford Chronicles trilogy. The first two books, The Priory and Vermin were both in the Top 5 British Horror books on Amazon during the summer and the epic conclusion to the gothic, time-travel, creature-feature trilogy promises to be bigger and better…

 

Release date: April 27th

 

You Love Me by Caroline Kepnes

Your favourite murderer, Joe from the ‘You’ Netflix series, isn’t quite finished with his story. In this third book the TV series is based on, Joe ditches city life for a simple existence in the Pacific Northwest. There, of course, he gets a job at a library and meets a woman. You know the rest by now.
