Friends, welcome to another exciting week of The Pond Book News! Every Sunday, The Quiet Pond brings you a fresh issue of book news to catch you up on the week’s lineup of diverse book releases, cover reveals, book news, and sometimes more!

This year, we’re changing up the book news a little to make space for all the wonderful projects we have coming your way in 2021—the little personal notes from Xiaolong and Sprout will now just be bonus blurbs instead of core fixtures in the articles! This means that you might not see us commenting on every single book release or announcement in the column anymore, but rest assured: if a book really really gets us excited, we’ll still let you know! The hope is that this will free up our time to work on new creative features that really excite us here at the Pond.

With the help of Xiaolong, we’ve brought to you the very first issue of 2021, covering all the book announcements we could find from December until today. Now, onwards to the brilliant books!
