2021 5-Star Reads

I had an okay year in reading. When I looked back at my stats, I was actually surprised that there weren’t more 5-star reads on the list. I read fewer books this year than last year, but I had less than half as many 5-stars this year. Part of this could be that I’ve become a little more discerning about what makes a read one of my favorites of all time. Part of it could be that I’ve added more people that I actually know to my Goodreads friend list this year and even though I know there should be no shame involved in reading, I still worry sometimes about what people might think of my reading taste. In any case, I had 11 5-star reads in 2021. These are the books that I have been recommending far and wide since I read them. *All links go to Goodreads*
