January 2021 Releases To Add To Your TBR

Its 2021! Who can believe it? Here’s to hoping that 2021 is a year filled with positive vibes!

Now, January 2021 is set up to be a great month for book releases – many of which I am excited to dive into and get reading. I’m trying to organise my reading a lot more this year, and I have created a spreadsheet of anticipated books for each month, which will hopefully make compiling these monthly lists easier.

What books are you looking forward to reading in January?
