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.
The rules are simple: Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to http://www.thatartsyreadergirl.com/ in your Top Ten Tuesday post.
This week is most anticipated book releases in 2021. Although I was planning on cutting back on spending money on books this year, I would love to see if my library has any of these.
- The Push
This is a debut novel by Ashley Audrain who is a local Canadian author. It is about a new mother who fears that her new baby doesn’t behave like the other children do. But her husband convinces that their daughter is just fine. But the more he tries to convince her that their daughter is fine, the more she doesn’t believe him. She begins to question her own sanity. But then life changes in an instant which makes her face the truth. This book is said to be a psychological page turner.
2. A Promised Land
This book explores Obama’s political career, to his reflections as America’s 44th President. I am really interested in reading this book. I heard many great things about Michelle Obama’s Becoming, although that is on my To Be Read List, too.
3. Pretty Little Wife
Another author’s debut novel. Lila and her husband live in a college town. This town there was a student who seemed to have vanished a few months ago. Now, Lila’s husband has gone missing. Although people seem to think that this is just a terrible coincidences. Everyone in the town is worried except for Lila. The police are seeking a connection, if there is any. Lila is confused about the disappearance of her missing husband, because she was the last person to see his body, and now he is gone.
4. Home Body
Kaur is always embracing growth, and self love. This book is filled with raw and honest poems about the past, present, and the journey of oneself.
5. The Greatest Secret
This is the fifth book, and it is about how your thoughts are more powerful than they appear to be. They shape our lives, because whatever we think will eventually happen to us. I would love to read the other four before I pick this book up.
6. The 4% Fix: How One Hour Can Change Your Life
I am really excited because I am slowly regaining my time management skills. I have thought about creating a “Power Hour” for myself, even before I heard about this book, so it’s exciting to read something you have already thought of. Although so far my Power Hour, is currently known as Chore Hour, which is what I used to spend time getting my chores down, and prepping dinner.
7. The Wrong Family
Juno moves in with this Winnie and Nigel Crouch, who appear to have the perfect house, marriage and son. As the days pass, she soon sees the cracks in everything, that everything isn’t as perfect as they seem. Juno overhears a chilling conversation between Nigel and Winnie, and she knows she shouldn’t continue eavesdropping, but she couldn’t stop. She realized that she has an opportunity to make this right, since she is a retired therapist. Although you would be wrong if Juno doesn’t have any secrets of her own.
8. Is This Anything?
Is This Anything? written by Jerry Seinfeld. For some reason, I had trouble downloading a photo of the book, but feel free to Google it. In this book, he has divided his sketches and monologues into a decades, ranging from the 70s to present. Although this was another book that was actually published in October 2020.
9. The Last Days of John Lennon
I haven’t actually read a James Patterson book before, but my mom, and Grandparents love reading his stories. I love The Beatles since my Mama would love listening to them throughout my childhood. I studied The Beatles in my music classes throughout elementary school, and I still remember those lessons. It was a lot of fun studying various musicians who had paved a way so our music can exist today, such as The Beach Boys and Elvis Presley. I am excited to read this book. Although when I was researching this book, I noticed that it was published near the end of last year.
10. Badass Habits: Cultivate the Awareness, Boundaries, and Daily Upgrades You Need to Make Them Stick
I ran out of books that will be released next year, but this book was published on December 1st, 2020. It focuses on how we can train ourselves to be better, and make better habits. There are even a 21 day challenge on how to get started with our habits.
