Happy Tuesday friends! I hope you all are having a lovely start to your week. For me, this week is dedicated to rest as I unwind after a hectic last week filled with Christmas festivities. I’m looking forward to spending some time with my family playing the new board games we got and reading some books I was gifted as well!
Today’s topic is “Top 5 Books of 2021″. This was extremely difficult to do because I found myself enjoying lots of books this year, but I finally brought it down to five and am excited to share them with you all!
With that said, here are the books that had a lasting impression on me this year!
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
Though I may have had a difficult time getting through the book when I was reading it, the story and characters have stuck with me ever since I turned that final page. I think it’s one of those books that was such a different pace to what I was used to, but the story is one that I adore and respect, and I couldn’t imagine not including the book on this list.
It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey
I mention this book in almost every single post on this blog, but it’s truly one of my favorite romances of all time, so how could I not!!? The characters, the setting, THE TROPES! I mean it has everything that I could ever want and ask for in an adorable romcom. 💖
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
In total, I think about 85% of the books I read this year were romcoms and this book was another one of my faves! I adored the banter and fake dating aspect within this one, and just remember knocking it out in one sitting because of how addictive it was.
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
This book was such a fun one to read, not only because of it’s unique story, but I also listened to the audiobook of it! The narrators did such a phenomenal job at voicing the characters and it truly felt like I was watching a movie, only the visuals were the pages of the book itself haha 😊
The Simple Wild series by K.A. Tucker
I devoured this entire series this past month and absolutely adored the books! Calla and Jonah are such an adorable couple, and I also loved how these books had a strong emphasis on the chosen-family trope. I am so so excited to read Marie’s story that’s coming out in January (in part because I’m excited to read her love story with a competitive sled-dog rider, but mainly because I need ALL the updates on Calla and Jonah!).
That is all for this post, thank you so much for reading! Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned? What were some of your favorite reads of 2021? 🥰
