Top Ten Tuesday: most anticipated releases of the second half of 2021

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

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.

There are so many amazing authors and so many wonderful books releasing. I wish I could read a whole lot more than I do. But I’ve compiled my list of the most anticipated releases. I’ve either joined the launch team or have read ARCs of most of these and I can’t wait for others to read them too!

My most anticipated releases (July – December 2021)

Sweet Summer by Christina Sinisi: July 6, 2021

She’s already released two cute adorable Christmas novellas, and this will be her first full length. I am excited to read it!

The Ice Swan – July 6, 2021

I’ve just finished the ARC – this book you guys – every word this author writes is exquisite. She has this stunning ability to write in a style that is both contemporary and classic. I can’t get enough.

Between the Wild Branches (The Covenant House Book #2 – July 6, 2021

Everything Connilyn writes is absolutely fabulous. You should definitely check out book 1 – for the cover alone, because it fits with the cover of book 2. Check out her Instagram to find out more about that!

To Bring You Back: A Contemporary Christian Romance (Rhythms of Redemption Romances Book 1) – August 16, 2021

I cannot WAIT for this novel by Emily Conrad. I have been waiting for another novel by her for years and this one already checks every thing I love in contemporary romances.


Rahab’s Courage (Yahweh’s Legacy Book 1) – August 17, 2021 

This is Naomi’s debut full length biblical fiction and I am thrilled for her! I can’t wait to read the final product and celebrate with her.

Fake Identity at Stake – August 24, 2021

This adorable rom com by Lisa Renee is a delight to read – plus, what a cute cover. In all seriousness, this story is both humorous and heartwarming!

Aspen Crossroads (A Whisper Canyon Romance Book 1)  – August, 24, 2021

I can’t believe this is already Janine’s fourth full length book. The reviews are already coming in for this beautiful novel and I am in love with the story premise. Plus this amazing cover!! Sounds like a story right up my alley!

Dogwood Winter: August 24, 2021

The moment I laid eyes on this cover I wanted to read this novel. Most of the time I take into consideration multiple factors – but I absolutely adore this cover. What do you think?

Since You’ve Been Gone (Restoring Heritage Book #3) – September 7, 2021

This entire series sounds adorable and I am slowly working my way through each book to get to this one before it release. Can’t wait!

Footprints on her Heart: Independent Islands #4 – November 23, 2021

I have enjoyed all of Tabitha’s independent island novels – but this one holds my favorite hero so far. Such a wonderful, heartfelt story of romance and redemption!
