Doctor Sleep: Ewan McGregor stars in new Stephen King horror
New Year will hopefully come with it a turn away from the difficulty coronavirus has brought people in 2020. Many have used this year to escape into their favourite books, and 2021 will be a great year for books after many releases were postponed. Express.co.uk goes through some of the hottest releases of 2021.
Later by Stephen King
Stephen King is nothing if not prolific, and his latest novel harks back to some of his classic earlier works like IT.
The synopsis reads: “The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child.
“Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn.
“But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine – as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave.”
Later comes out in the UK on March 2, 2021

Anna K Away by Jenny Lee
Anna K Away is the sequel to Jenny Lee’s Anna K, which was released just before the lockdown on March 3, 2020.
The official synopsis for the sequel reads: “How the mighty have fallen. Anna K, once the golden girl of Greenwich, CT, and New York City, has been brought low by a scandalous sex tape and the tragic death of her first love, Alexia Vronsky.
“At the beginning of the summer, her father takes her to the other side of the world, to connect with his family in South Korea and hide her away.
“Is Anna in exile? Or could this be her chance to figure out who she really is?”
Anna K Away is out in the UK on April 27, 2021
Aftershocks by Nadia Owusu
Her debut memoir, Nadia’s story is one of secrets and lies, and is set to be a true classic.
The official synopsis reads: “Young Nadia Owusu followed her father, a United Nations official, from Europe to Africa and back again.
“Just as she and her family settled into a new home, her father would tell them it was time to say their goodbyes. The instability wrought by Nadia’s nomadic childhood was deepened by family secrets and fractures, both lived and inherited.
“Her Armenian American mother, who abandoned Nadia when she was two, would periodically reappear, only to vanish again. Her father, a Ghanaian, the great hero of her life, died when she was thirteen.
“After his passing, Nadia’s stepmother weighed her down with a revelation that was either a bombshell secret or a lie, rife with shaming innuendo.”
Aftershocks is out in the UK on January 12, 2021
Win by Harlan Coben
Harlan Coben’s stories have gained a huge audience after they were adapted for platforms such as Sky and Netflix, with The Stranger becoming a cultural phenomenon.
The official synopsis for his latest book, Win, reads: “Over twenty years ago, heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family’s estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months.
“Patricia escaped, but so did her captors, and the items stolen from her family were never recovered. Until now.”
Win comes out in the UK on March 18, 2021
Winds of Winter by George RR Martin
This is a long shot, as George R R Martin has been writing this book for a very long time indeed.
In June of this year, George spoke about how he has been writing the book throughout the pandemic, to the point of getting ‘cabin fever.’
He said of his progress: “If nothing else, the enforced isolation has helped me write. I am spending long hours every day on The Winds of Winter, and making steady progress.
“I finished a new chapter yesterday, another one three days ago, another one the previous week.
“But no, this does not mean that the book will be finished tomorrow or published next week.
“It’s going to be a huge book, and I still have a long way to go.”
While he does not reveal when the book is coming out, fans will certainly have their hopes in 2021 finally being the moment it comes out, though they will have to continue to wait for confirmation.
