January 18: 2021 Releases I Was Excited to Read But Didn’t Get To
There were a lot of these! Keeping it to ten…
The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner – A dual timeline novel involving an eighteenth century poisoner and a modern historian who stumbles upon evidence of the crimes. Sounds like fun.
Libertie by Kaitlyn Greenidge – I read a book years ago about some of the first female doctors and it sparked a bit of an interest in the subject. This novel is about one of the first Black female doctors in the United States.
Matrix by Lauren Groff – I’ve liked a lot of Groff’s past work. This looks like a bit of a change of pace for her.
The Maidens by Alex Michaelides – I wasn’t a huge fan of Michaelides debut, The Silent Patient (I thought it was alright but nothing special) but his follow up looks interesting, and I love the whole “dark academia” aesthetic.
House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland – I’ve read several rave reviews of this one
The Comfort Book by Matt Haig – I don’t know if this is actually comforting, but just in case it is, I don’t want to miss out!
The Last House on Needless Street by Caitriona Ward– For some reason I find the title of this really intriguing.
The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix – A few people in my book club have recommended this one.
