My Year in Books, 2021



I read some really cool books this year.

And some that weren’t written for me.

Either way, I read 24!

2021 was a complicated year, so I’m quite happy with that number.

My favorite book I read this year: INK & SIGIL by Kevin Hearne


This is a present-day Scottish urban fantasy.

I have an entire post dedicated to this book so I won’t go into a bunch of details, but needless to say, it was exactly what I needed.

Hilarious. Heartfelt. Oh and hilarious.


My genre of the year (GOTY): Romance, obviously. I needed those happy endings!


Best book from my GOTY: THE PAWN by Skye Warren


This is about a woman who sells her virginity after her wealthy father ruins the family name. Prepare to suspend your disbelief and have some (moderately dark) fun.


The most interesting book I read this year: DEN OF VIPERS by K.A. Knight


First things first, this book is 654 pages. Six hundred and fifty-four pages.

The sex is graphic. The violence (some consensual, some not) is graphic. And it’s a significantly dark story. To me, the darkness is cartoony because it’s so outrageous, but to some, it may truly be triggering and/or upsetting. So take that into consideration prior to picking up this book.


This book was a wild - and I mean wild - ride. Sometimes I didn’t really know what was going on, but it didn’t matter for some reason. I didn’t care. I was enjoying the ride. Highly recommend this reverse harem super steamy read.
