Books on My Radar – Vol. 2

Here are some more future releases I have on my radar!

If you missed it I did a round 1 of this back in June. Essentially this is a place to mention some of the future releases (some far in the future) I’m interested it or keeping an eye on.

Heads up – I prep my posts pretty far in advance, so some of this information may be out of date. I try to come back and update as best I can, but a cover or synopsis may have been releases without me noticing. I linked the Goodreads page for all the books I could so definitely check that out for all the latest info!

1. Drive Me Wild by Melanie Harlow

Release Date: August 24, 2020

This was recently announced in her reader group and I’m really excited! There’s no cover and no synopsis, but there is a Goodreads page now 😅 And it’s releasing in just over a month! This is the start of a new series by the author who wrote the Cloverleigh Farms series which I adored.

2. Box in the Woods (Truly Devious #4) by Maureen Johnson

Release Date: April 6, 2021

I had absolutely no idea this book was a think and I’m still freaking about about it! 1) This cover is stunning, I’m obsessed with the purple 2) this takes place at a summer camp which is one of my favorite settings and 3) I thought this series was over! And I’m so excited that we are getting more in this world!

While this is the 4th book in this world, it’s a whole new mystery that takes place outside Ellingham Academy!

3. Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro

Release Date: March 2, 2021

I read Never Let Me Go by this author and was completely blown away. So when I saw they were releasing a novel, I immediately added it to my TBR. This doesn’t have a cover yet but it is an adult sci-fi told from the perspective of an AI who carefully watches the behavior of customers browsing, hoping to one day be purchased.

Klara and the Sun is a thrilling book that offers a look at our changing world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and one that explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love?

4. Marvelous by Claire Kane

Release Date: June 8, 2021

(I didn’t realize I had this book on 2 different posts because of the name change. Oops 😅)

This synopsis is everything and I want this in my hands yesterday. I can’t sum it up nearly as well, so here is the synopsis from Goodreads:

When Jewel inherits a not-so-small fortune, she decides to throw a party to celebrate at her new estate. Except she isn’t hosting an ordinary high school party: she’s hosting a bash with an exclusive guest list of her most loyal “friends” and a life-changing cash prize awarded at midnight.

Once the party begins, her friends embark on an unforgettable game solving cryptic clues, confessing their darkest secrets, and conquering fear-based dares. But as the game grows tougher and intensely more personal, they all begin to wonder: Who exactly is Jewel Van Hanen and why would she put them through this?

5. Medusa by Jessie Burton

Release Date: October 2020

Okay so this still doesn’t have a cover or set release date so I don’t have high hopes this is still releasing in October. However I am super excited for it! This is a YA retelling of Medusa that explores “toxic masculinity and the meaning of consent”. So. Much. Yes.


Let me know if you’re excited for any of these as well!
