Best of the Best 2021

Today I am participating in the Top 10 of 2021 hosted by Kimberly Faye Reads. Today's topic is the best of the best books. I am excited to share my favorite reads of 2021. They were not necessarily released in 2021, I just read them in 2021. As of today I have finished 251 books and it will be difficult to narrow it down to just ten, so I am going to cheat just a little bit and do a couple of different categories. The books will not be in any particular order.

The Best Fiction I read this year: 

 
The Best Audiobooks I listened to this year:
 
(series!)
 
 
The Best Nonfiction I read this year: 
 

The Best Children's Books I read this year:

    1. You are welcome, it was a great book. I hope to eventually catch up on your "older" books that I have not read.

  9. Wow, you have so many wonderful reads here. 2021 was very good to you!

    I kind of cheated at this one and did two separate posts, because I want to show off all my five-star reads, but I also like to show off Dan Jones, who is my most fave author.

    1. Sorry, just now seeing this. I don't consider that cheating, there are no hard and fast rules, LOL! Will check out both of your posts :)

    2. Good, I am glad it is not 'cheating'. And that's what is so great about so many of the memes and challenges around the book-sphere: we can make them into whatever works best for us.
