I love reading. I prefer to do that than watch TV, go to the gym, floss my teeth, pay bills, or wash the laundry. I review a lot of the books I read, usually received from NetGalley, the library, or an Indie efriend, but I also buy quite a few. I collect my writing book reviews here and my education ones here. When I read, I choose thrillers, historical fiction, education (for my other passion), and then anything else.
Here are my ten favorite books read in 2021 (in alphabetic order):
- Alex Delaware series by Jonathan Kellerman
- A Wolf Called Wander by Rosanne Parry
- Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins
- Chet and Bernie Mysteries by Spencer Quinn
- Gray Man series by Mark Greaney
- Grizzly Killer series by Lane Warenski
- Just Before Sunrise by Carol Balawyder
- Keeper Tyree by Sandra Cox
- The Princess of Las Pulgas by C. Lee McKenzie
- Villa del Sol by Martha Reynolds
A few books that I read every year and have always loved fell off the list because they chose to go political, or woke. That’s not why I read.
I read 170 books according to Goodreads.
This included a whole lot of Indie and blogging efriend books. Any you like or have also read?
One more thing. I don’t have enough social media followers. If you would follow me, I’ll follow you back! Here’re my handles:

A note about GETTR: I just joined so have almost no followers! BUT–I don’t approve followers whose focus is politics so that could explain it. Just a free exchange of writing ideas and support for your (and my) books. If that fits you, I’d love to see you over there. I’m still trying to figure out how to clean out the politics so I apologize in advance if you run into it.
Since I read about three books a week, I’m always eager for new material. What’s your favorite book from 2021?
