Books of the Year – 2021 (Part One)

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on

I have been thinking over the last few weeks about my books of the year which I have read in 2021.

I will be splitting my books of the year over 3 posts, over the next 3 weeks.

This week are four books I read between January and August this year:

πŸ’œ We Begin at the End – Chris Whitaker

This book has stayed with me even though I completed this all the way back in April.

One of the main characters Duchess has been stuck in my heart, for all she goes through and the emotions I felt hearing her story.

My wrap up comment from my review:

Overall, an emotional, rollercoaster crime thriller which will break your heart.

πŸ’œ The Family Upstairs – Lisa Jewell

This was the second book I read from Lisa Jewell and I enjoyed it so much I signed up to a author subscription with Berts Books as I want to read all of her work.

I remember feeling haunted throughout, as if it was going to turn into a horror story at any point.

My wrap up comment from my review:

Overall, a mysterious, gripping and amazing thriller that you just can’t put down.

πŸ’œ The Crying House – B.R. Spangler

This was the first book I had read by this author and also the first book I reviewed on NetGalley. I remember I was really nervous to click post πŸ˜‚.

This was a shocking thriller which kept you gripped throughout. You feel part of the team as you try and work out the mystery with them.

My wrap up comment from my review:

Overall, an exciting, dark, shocking thriller that leaves you wanting more. A must read for any crime/thriller reader.

πŸ’œ Anywhere Else – Kayla Hicks

I received a request to review this book from the author, and I was so glad I accepted.

I felt so many emotions from the main character and I really didn’t want the book to end.

My Wrap up comment from my review:

Overall, an uplifting, romantic novel with plenty to make you smile and laugh.

That is my four picks for this week, and there will be four more next week 😊

Have you read any of these?
