My Favourite 21 Books of 2021!

This year has been awful in many ways, but the one thing that has remained consistently incredible is the quality of the books being published. I found creating this list so hard because there are many books not on this list that I absolutely loved. However, I had to draw the line somewhere or this blog post would be never-ending! So here are my 21 favourite books of 2021! They are in no particular order, but I did manage to choose a top five (I couldn’t possibly pick just one favourite this year) which I will reveal at the end of this post! I hope you all have a safe and wonderful New Year’s Eve and lets hope 2022 is a little bit less stressful!
