My top 21 reads of 2021

Hello! I hope that you’ve all had a good start to your weeks. Today, I have a list of my top 21 reads of 2021! There are a ton of really amazing books here, and I loved putting this list together. It was fun to look back on all the books that I read this year, and to select 21 to put on this list. I read a total of 121 books, which mean that I had to pick 100 to not have on this list which was a little difficult.

I did decide not to include books that I reread during 2021 in this list, because I wanted it to be new books that I discovered during the year. Some are 2021 releases, some are older, and all have mini reviews with my thoughts on each book. So, without further ado, here are my favorite books of 2021!

LGBTQ+ books I read this summer

Hi!! Today I have a list of all of the LGBTQ+ books I read this summer! There are 11 in total, and I’m so excited to share my thoughts on them all with you! Two are rereads, but the rest are new, and I think that I’ve done a good job this summer in trying to read lots of books with LGBTQ+ rep!!

Also, these all have queer main characters, and those are the ones I wanted to include. I have read lots of other books with LGBTQ+ side characters, and I do want to point that out too.

Anyways, I read a ton of amazing books this summer, and I do recommend all of these, so you can take this as a wrap up and as a queer books recommendations post. I did prefer some of the books more than others though, so you can read about all of my thoughts on them below! So, let’s get into the post!

The Bronzed Beasts, by Roshani Chokshi | a fanastic conclusion to an amazing series

Hello, and welcome to the review of my most anticipated releast of 2021! The Bronzed Beasts is the conclusion to The Gilded Wolves trilogy, a historical fantasy series that I’ve been following for a very long time. I first read The Gilded Wolves at the beginning of 2020, then eagerly awaited The Silvered Serpents, and painfully waited for The Bronzed Beasts. I ended up miraculously winning a goodreads giveaway for The Bronzed Beasts, which is how I ended up with the advance copy I’m going to be reviewing today!

This review, like all of mine, will be fully spoiler free for all the books in the trilogy, so without further ado, let’s get into the review!
