56 of the Most Anticipated Young Adult Books of 2021
Gothic romance, dueling family restaurants, West African magic, and much, much more! It sure looks like 2021 is shaping up to be a year of spectacular young adult reading. Among the most anticipated books in fantasy are Leigh Bardugo's return to Ravka in Rule of Wolves and Ciannon Smart's hot debut, Witches Steeped in Gold. If realism is more your speed, then you might want to take a little trip down memory lane with Maverick Carter in Angie Thomas' Concrete Rose.
To create our list of the year's must-read young adult fiction, we focused on what Goodreads members can't wait to read. How do we measure that anticipation? By looking at how many times a book has been added to Want to Read shelves. We also factored in the reaction (and reviews) of early readers. We then sorted them by fantasy and sci-fi versus contemporary and historical novels.
