Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.
Wow, we’re in the last week of 2021, and it’s so strange. This year has both dragged and flown by, all at the same time. And as soon as I saw this prompt, I already knew that I wasn’t going to be able to limit myself to just 10 books. 2022 was an incredible year for books, even if the rest of the year was kind of sucky. So instead, I went back through my monthly wrap ups and checked out the books that I highlighted as my favorites for each month. Here’s my favorite books that I read in 2021:
- January — Wings of Ebony by J. Elle and Beach Read by Emily Henry.
- February — The Midnight Library by Matt Haig, Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao, and A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas.
- March — Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert and The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren.
- April — Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo, Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley, and The Bride Test by Helen Hoang.
- May — The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon.
- June — Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid and Capture the Crown by Jennifer Estep.
- July — Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth by Noa Tishby, If the Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy, and Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco.
- August — The Last Nomad by Shugri Said Salh and Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli.
- September — The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina by Zoraida Córdova and Love, Chai, and Other Four-Letter Words by Annika Sharma.
- October —The City Beautiful by Aden Polydoros, The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend, and Jade Legacy by Fonda Lee.
- November — A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness and The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer.
- December — The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman and Olga Dies Dreaming by Xóchitl González.
