top ten 2021 releases i didn’t get to
posted by soe 1:20 am

Thanks, everyone, for the kind messages about Rudi’s mom. We’re working on a tribute and I’ll be sure to share it here once it’s complete. Suffice it to say, 2022 has been challenging so far.

We’re still in Salt Lake and still dealing with things, so I’m not ready to start blogging every day yet, but I do want to step back in with a couple posts this week so I don’t get too accustomed to not writing.

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl asks about the books that came out last year that we were really excited about, but that for one reason or another (see: life), we didn’t get to cross off our TBR lists before 2021 headed out of town. Here are ten of mine:

  1. Sherry Thomas’ Miss Moriarty, I Presume?
  2. Beth and Amy by Virginia Kantra
  3. The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles
  4. The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary
  5. Aristotle and Dante Dive into the Waters of the World by Benjamin Alire Sãenz
  6. Aurora’s End by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
  7. Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli
  8. Mackenzi Lee’s The Nobleman’s Guide to Scandal and Shipwrecks
  9. Pumpkin by Julie Murphy
  10. Mary H.K. Choi’s Yolk

How about you? Were there books that came out last year that you couldn’t wait for — but it turns out that you did?

Category: books. There is/are 7 Comments.

Pumpkin was warm and fuzzy like all her books. I’ve still got Aurora’s End to read too.

While I haven’t read any of these, I have heard fantastic things about many of them. I hope you enjoy them all when you get the chance to read them.
