Coffee and… 2021 July to Sept Books I’m Excited For

The Coffee:

This week we’re drinking a new coffee from our faves at Steampunk. The DRC Sopacdi Women’s Coffee Project MicroStation has tasting notes of passionfruit, apricot and toffee, and it is as tasty as it sounds.

The Books:


Afterlove by Tanya Byrne – At this point, it will be no surprise to see this book on my most anticipated books list. I adored this book with my whole heart when I read it and I will be reading it again as soon as I can. You can see my full review here and if you don’t already have it pre-ordered, you should correct that.

This Poison Heart by Kalynn Bayron – I absolutely loved Kalynn’s first book, Cinderella is Dead, so when I heard about this second book, I immediately pre-ordered. This Poison Heart promises magic, real witchy vibes and best of all a poison garden with a hidden power at the centre.

Crowfall by Vashti Hardy – Vashti is one of my favourite middle grade authors. I’m yet to meet a book of hers I don’t love. Her books are always packed with adventure and this one takes place at sea (my favourite kind) with a servant boy and his robot friend being chased by a sea monster. I’m very here for this.


As Good as Dead by Holly Jackson – Murder Lady has another book coming out! I have been a huge fan of Holly’s work since her debut The Good Girl’s Guide to Murder. I absolutely adore Pip and I can’t wait to find out what she’s investigating in this third (and I think final) adventure.

The Way Back Almanac by Melinda Salisbury – My Queen Melinda Salisbury has produced an almanac; a guide back to nature for those who have lost the old ways. I will always buy everything that Mel writes, but this really appeals to my witchy side and I cannot wait to have it in my little grabby hands.

Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko – Raybearer, the first book in this series was one of my favourite books of 2020. The world and the magic system blew me away and I am very invested in the characters and their future. I have really high hopes for this sequel and am looking forward to reading it.


Precious Catastrophe by Dierdre Sullivan – I had no idea that there was going to be a sequel to Perfectly Preventable Deaths, but here it is. Arriving just in time to kick off the witchy season. I can’t wait to see how Madeline is faring after the end of book one.

Only on the Weekends by Dean Atta – I was obsessed with Black Flamingo by this author. After that Dean Atta became an instant buy author for me. This one promises a queer love story, set in Scotland and written in verse. Sign me up immediately.

Dragon City by Katie and Kevin Tsang – If you don’t know that Team Burns are obsessed with everything the Tsangs write, you do now. We are very excited (and a little nervous) for the next book in this series. A lot went down in Dragon Legend and there are some questions to be answered.

What books are you looking forward to over the next few months? Any you think I should add to my list?
