Prepare yourselves, book-lovers, because summer 2021 came in hot with an abundance of must-read titles in every genre. Not even the book industry was immune to the weirdness that was 2020, and as a result, major titles were delayed and the overall number of books released seemed to decline. However, things are definitely looking up this year as highly anticipated new releases from the likes of Helen Hoang, Stephen King, Taylor Jenkins Reid, and Jasmine Guillory have been making their way to bookstores. Add in buzzy debuts, truly breathtaking thrillers, and at least one book that delves into the backstage gossip from the world of the Real Housewives franchise, and it seems only fitting to declare summer 2021 the hottest season of the year for must-read new releases.
