Reading Round-Up – 2021 So Far

2021 has been a great year in books for me so far. Here are a few of the highlights of my reading life from this year so far:

  • Discovering Kristin Hannah. I picked up The Four Winds on recommendation from a book friend, and then I devoured The Nightingale, The Great Alone, and Magic Hour. I can’t believe I hadn’t picked up one of her books sooner! What a fantastic author. Great historical fiction, which isn’t typically my favorite genre. I definitely will read more of her older works.
  • Great reads by authors I already loved. This year, I read Anthony Horowitz’s latest (Moonflower Murders) as well as a few other titles by him I’d never read before, The House Of Silk and Moriarty. I also read a few more books by Ann Patchett (State Of Wonder , The Dutch House, and Run). So excited for the latest Louise Penny novel and a new Horowitz novel coming out this fall!
  • I always love a page-turner – a book that I can hardly stand to put down for a moment, a book that I’m sneaking peaks at every chance I get. This year, a few great page-turners I’ve read so far are The Last Thing He Told Me, Every Last Fear, Too Good To Be True, The Girls Are All So Nice Here, The Mother-In-Law and The Last Mrs. Parrish.
  • Reading chapter books with Edgarmy new obsession! We have been devouring the Dragon Masters series and the Princess In Black books.

A few of my other favorites for the year have been: The Plot – so freaking good; The Invisible Life of Addie Larue and The Midnight Library, both incredible; The Thursday Murder Club – sequel coming out this October!; and the Truly Devious books, which are a YA mystery series.

Happy reading to all!
