2021 in books

So, 2021 was a good year for me in terms of books. I haven’t read 45 books in a year in, well, years. I probably haven’t read 45 books in a year since I was a kid, when my grandparents and I used to go to our local library every Friday evening to select our reading material for the following week. I would choose so many books that the librarian would often have to gently tell me that I couldn’t check out that many books. I honestly loved Friday evenings. The children’s section would be deserted and I’d just sit myself in this nook, trying to whittle down my stack of thirty books to something the librarian would let me check out in one go. I’d always make a beeline for the DK (Dorling Kindersley) books and would spend what felt like hours reading about dinosaurs or space. I remember once checking out a DK book on ballet and trying to teach myself ballet in my bedroom…my feet did not appreciate that.

Anyway, enough of me reminiscing about the late 90s and very early 2000s. Here are my top reads of 2021, helpfully divided into two categories; fiction and non-fiction. If you click on the book’s title, my review for it will appear in a new window.

    1. They’re such good books, aren’t they?! I only started reading them about a year or so ago, but it’s hands down one of my favourite paranormal romance series to date!
