On the TBR: 50 Books I Want to Read in 2021

My TBR shelf at the moment is 622 books long and, so far, the only way it’s seeming to go down is when I delete a bunch of books off it that I’m never going to get to. So. In an attempt to do something about that, I’ve taken 50 books that are on my TBR (with the help of a random number generator and Twitter) that I plan to get read in 2021.

This may be overly optimistic, but we shall see.

  1. I have some Michelle Sagara to read as well, and The Mercies has been sitting in my review pile for months, and you’ve just added The Pirate’s Booty to my own TBR.

    Kushiel’s Dart is SO good – I reread the first 2 books this year with the new mass market paperback editions coming out, but have been saving the 3rd for cold winter nights.
