This year marks another incredible year of new releases. We’ll take a look at some of the best selling novels coming in 2021, from bestsellers to the award-nominated debuts you probably missed.
But how would you know if you’re reading the best novel? Aside from sales figures, the best book teaches you history, which the curriculum probably never did. It breaks your heart, then mends it, sometimes in the same chapter.
Great novels let you travel back in the past era, and walk into a fantasy world. And sometimes offer glimpses into a dystopian future world far more bewildering than 2020. If you already have covered reading the most anticipated books published in 2020 that we’ve suggested last year, here is another list of best selling novels published in 2021 to keep you reading.
