Just *Some* of the Incredible Books I Read in 2021…

AKA Honourable Mentions- because I am lucky enough to have read SO MANY AMAZING BOOKS! One post just isn’t enough to cover them all. I won’t be going into detail about a lot of these, because we’d be here all day, but I’d happily recommend EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE A MILLION TIMES OVER! Okay, I’ll try to tone it down, here’s the books worth squealing over:

Yes there’s a lot there! And that’s after trimming it down! I’d definitely like to spotlight some attention on the WAY TOO UNDERRATED YA contemporary The How and the Why. And if you need something super sweet, I’d go for Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse or Tea Dragon Society of course! And the Fire of Joy definitely made me joyful! Or if you’re in an entirely different mood, the thriller standouts I read were the Appeal and the Michaelides books. The Ivies was a cutting YA thriller- with an emphasis on FUN! Kingdom of the Wicked had the wicked edge I enjoy in YA fantasy. Echo North was a gorgeous retelling and I’d be remiss not to mention it as a standout read this year. And Winterwood was witchy, atmospheric and bordered on the uncanny. Malibu Rising will give you a taste for the 80s surf scene. Finally, if you’re feeling a little lost, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is a wonderful self-help-y non fic. And of course, I have to recommend Happiest Man on Earth again for a life-affirming memoir.

And that’s all for now! Have you read any of these? Did you love them as much as me? And BE PREPARED for EVEN BETTER BOOKS in the next post…

  1. You already know that I read and liked Echo North as well! Malibu Rising made it onto my list of top reads in 2021 too 🙂 other than that, I haven’t read any of the books you’ve mentioned, but I always wanted to get The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, but it’s suuuper expensive and I wanted a physical copy.

  2. I’m trying to read more non-fiction this year so Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is going straight on my list, it sounds brilliant! I also loved The Silent Patient but have yet to read The Maidens and I’ve heard some mixed reviews. I’m really pleased to hear you enjoyed it, maybe I’ll give it a go soon! 📚❤️ X x x
