Fourth Quarter Releases on my TBR | 2021

The fourth quarter of 2021 is has already snuck up on us. Wasn’t I just writing my second quarter post last week? What happened? Granted, I always end up feeling like this at the end of summer. Summer is just…this empty span of time I have to suffer through. Some folks may love summertime but I am not among them. I grew up in the mohave desert and I never, ever want to be that warm again. The heat makes me think of misery and torture. But, that’s just me. Now that fall is here I am once again excited to get outside and get some reading done to the dancing of crunchy leaves!

What Should I Read Next?

We have all done it. We finish a book, are in the mood to read another, but just can’t decide what to read next. No matter whether you are a TBR type reader or a mood reader, I feel like we have all been there at one point or another. Unread books run amok in our homes, our “want to read” files are miles long, ARCs are demanding our attention, but nothing is quite hitting the spot.

So, I thought today we would sit together and take a gander at a few of the books that are most drawing my eye right now and see if we can’t find something to read.

Most Anticipated Releases | Third Quarter 2021

Here we are once again, time for another quarterly look at my most anticipated reads. I feel like I just finished writing the 2nd quarter post and 3rd quarter snuck up on me and smacked me right in the face. For a year, March 2020 – March 2021, it felt like the world was at an absolute stand still and time wasn’t passing in any way. It was a weird purgatory. Now, since COVID vaccines have rolled out, it seems as if the world has started moving again and it had an entire year to catch up on. Everything is moving so fast. Ya’ll, I’m tired.

But, you didn’t come here to hear me whinge. You came here to look at some books. As this is a book blog that makes sense, right? Well then, let’s take a peak at upcoming releases for the 3rd quarter of 2021 that have me excited!

All release dates listed correspond to their US release

2nd Quarter Wrap Up

I don’t know if it is because I am busier than I have been in quite some time or because I have a Big Thing coming up that I am focusing or what is going on but I swear to you this year is going by more quickly than any have before. Maybe it is getting older that is making me feel that way. What I do know is that I have continued to read more in 2021 than I ever have before in my life.

Let’s take a trip together back over the last three months of reading and see, well, what there is to see!

May Wrap Up | 2021

Average 3.4

Ah yes, May. The month that almost felt like it wasn’t a repeat of March 2020. Maybe we will be living in March 2020 the rest of our lives, who knows, but May almost felt different. Almost.

Despite the fact that I was very busy in May I managed to get a lot read. This past month was incredibly busy at work, I had a flurry of doctor’s appointments, my second COVID shot that knocked me down and out, my child’s last day of school, working towards selling a house…I’m tired, ya’ll. Because of all the happened this month I assumed my “books read” for the month would be 3 or 4 at the most but here we are. Let’s take a look back at May here at Literary Weaponry.

Most Anticipated Releases | Second Quarter 2021

2021 is turning out to be a year of spectacular book releases. The first quarter brought us reads such as The Mask Falling by Samantha Shannon, We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal, and A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J Maas all of which were high up on my anticipated reads list. The second quarter looks like it will be filled with even more phenomenal releases! Here are some second quarter releases I am most looking forward to.

Goodreads Was Wrong Booktag

I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump lately so I figure that now was the perfect time to put together a book tag! This tag was found at Way Too Fantasy and it seemed like a fun romp. It can be frustrating when you don’t feel like reading but still want to be active in the reading community. Just because you aren’t in the mood to read doesn’t mean that you aren’t a reader, a lover of books and stories. Participate in a way that makes you comfortable. I guess this is my way of saying that even though I don’t feel like reading I’m not going to shut up about the stories I love or even the ones I hate.
