Top 10 Reads of the Year

So far this year, I’ve finished 244 books. I’m aiming for 250 but I’m already way over my original goal of 150 so I feel like I’ve won already. That said, picking the top 10 of the year was insanely hard. Interestingly, only 3 of these made my top 10 at the halfway point this year, so I’ve had an amazing second half of reads. (Or maybe my brain is just forgetting the intense love I had for the other 7 earlier in the year…)

Anywhoo, without further ado… my top ten of 2021 are:


1. Cloud Cuckoo Land

2. Hamnet

3. Project Hail Mary

4. The Prison Healer

5. House of Hollow

6. Sistersong

7. Where the Lost Wander

8. Beneath the Veil of Smoke and Ash

9. Pony

10. Widdershins

Definitely an eclectic mix, as is par for the course with me, it’s a bit heavy on the fantasy and historical fiction but there are a few in there that really surprised me as to how much I loved them.

What was your favorite read of the year?

I am the Vice President of Clinical Affairs for a medical device company where my job is to promote the utility of the device to doctors. I have science and business degrees and have editorial experience in medical communications. In college, I served as an Editorial Assistant for a healthcare communications company and have served on two editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals. In my free time, I always have a book in my hand... or two or three! On average, I read 20 books a month. I have looked to combine two of my skill sets to review on Goodreads and promote books on Instagram that I love to other readers. I'm open to partnering with publishers as an influencer for book tours, giveaways etc.
