Show Us Your Books: 12 Favorite Reads of 2021

I love when people share their favorite reads of the year. I almost always find something to immediately add to my very long to be read list. I would rather die with books unread than be pawing around for something to read at any time, so keep sharing books you love. I'm going to do that in a different way this year, not saying a damn thing about why I liked them. I'm just listing them and you can do with that what you will. My dog died three days ago and this is what I have the bandwidth for. 

As of today I've read 143 books this year -  142 published plus one Beta read for Shelby. You can always see what I'm reading in real time by following me on Goodreads.. I think this link takes you to my year in books which I always like to look over. Yet another year with no cool diagrams like some people share and I always say I will make happen and alas I do not. 

You can go to this page where all of the original SUYB posts live in one place - the read in MONTH below means the book is in that month's SUYB post, maybe not read in that actual month since they don't go by calendar months. Out of 143 books, here are my 12 favorite reads for the year:

Detransition, Baby by Torrey Peters - read in January

Circe by Madeline Miller - read in February

The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave - read in May

We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker - read in May

The Nature of Fragile Things by Susan Meissner - read in July

Mary Jane by Jessica Anya Blau - read in July

The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller - read in September 

Once There Were Wolves by Charlotte McConaughy - read in September

Everything We Didn't Say by Nicole Baart - read in November 

Sankofa by Chibundu Onuzo - read in November

Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult - read in December

No One Will Miss Her by Kat Rosenfield - read in December 

Important ALSO: I read #s 11, 12, and 13 in the Josie Quinn series by Lisa Regan this year, the first in a new series by Harlan Coben about one of the Myron Bolitar series characters (Win), and the 13th in the Kate Burkholder series by Linda Castillo and they were all great. I depend on series books and they don't usually make my year end lists. 

Happy birthday to Angie today!
