My Top 10 Books of 2021

As I write this, Goodreads tells me that I’ve read 79 books this year! A total that I’m very proud of. Of those 79, only nine are print or ebook. Lol! It’s gonna be a short list, folks. 😂 However, I’ve had a very fortuitous year and of those nine books, I absolutely loved seven of them!

In no particular order:

Each one of these books blew me away. They ticked all of my boxes: gripping plots, fantastic characters and no cliffhangers!

Have you read any of these? Which print or ebooks would make it onto your top 10 of 2021? Drop me a comment below.

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog -

Thanks for sharing your Top 10 Books. I’m really enjoying reading everyone’s choices. As a fiction editor, it’s nice to see books I’ve worked on appearing on blogger’s lists too. Glad you enjoyed Amanda Cadabra and The Strange Case of Lucy Penlowr. x

Haven’t read these, but definitely curious about the Bear books. Looks like you had a good year with a great series of books! I am not doing a Top 10 this year, instead I sorted my 5+ starred reviews in categories and made posts of those which will come in the last week of the year.
