Books 2021

In 2021 I read a total of 47 books. Highlighted in bold are firm favourites. This was also the year I raced to finish classics by Roald Dahl and Arthur Conan Doyle, two popular authors I never read in childhood.

The book that took me by surprise this year was “The Divine Romance” by Gene Edwards, a Christian author I only discovered this year. To exploring new authors and new genres next year!
