21 Books to Read in 2021

As well as completing a number of reading challenges in 2021, I would like to read twenty-one specific books throughout the year… aka 21 in 2021.

Given that one of my big reading goals for this year is to read my own shelves, every single title pictured below in my 21 in 2021 book list are titles I own on my physical bookshelves. They range from 2020-released titles (Loveless; Hollowpox; Troy; Take A Hint, Dani Brown) to backlist titles by authors I love (Tithe; The Perfect Waltz ) to books I’m general intrigued by (The Lovely War; The Eyre Affair; Not Meeting Mr. Right) and books I totally forgot I owned, but really want to read (Happiness for Humans). I intended to include something from every genre, but keen eyed readers will notice I forget to include any crime novels, poetry books and graphic novels … a point I didn’t realise until I had completed my bullet journal (bujo) spread and created the graphic below. Opps!


Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments what books I should prioritise and read ASAP.

    Tithe is good, and !!! you are going to love the Eyre Affair! I’m looking at reading one of Stephen Fry’s myth books this year too!

      Thanks Ally!
      I’ve had the boxset of the whole series for years now, so its well passed time I finally read the series!

      I know we read Eyre Affair for bookclub once but I remember not being able to read it for some reason or another. When I stumbled across it on my shelves, I was like this is the year I discover for myself wht Ally and Amy love it so much!
