Top Ten Tuesday – Best Books I Read in 2021

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Best Books I Read in 2021.  I had such a good reading year that I’m finding it impossible to narrow down to just ten favorite reads.  Instead of making those impossible cuts to get down to just ten books, I’m going to go ahead and share all of my favorites from the different genres I read.  My groupings aren’t very precise though since several of these could fit into multiple categories.  The bulk of my favorites are also romances since I read more of those than I did anything else in 2021.
