I read some excellent books in 2021, here are just a few.
The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin
The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot is an incredible debut novel from Marianne Cronin, an author who is going to go far and I look forward to joining her on her journey.
The Maid by Nita Prose
Misunderstood and underestimated, Molly is such a well created and highly developed character that I will not be forgetting in a hurry.
A phenomenal read and a remarkable debut, an absolute must have book!
The Nurse by J.A. Corrigan
I found the story very original and was gripped from the very first page, it really was difficult to put it down.
‘The Nurse’ is one of those books that you can’t stop thinking about long after you have closed the last page. It is compelling, full of twists and an absolute must read.
Call Me Mummy by Tina Baker
Call Me Mummy was gripping from the very first page! Extremely well-paced and an absolute page-turner. A fantastic debut!
The Wife Who Got a Life by Tracy Bloom
This book made me laugh out loud at several points. The ending was certainly emotional and, not usually one to cry at books, I am not ashamed to admit that I did in fact shed a tear.
‘The Wife Who Got a Life’ is uplifting and emotional and such a poignant reminder of how simple life can be and yet how happy it can make you.
The Winter of Second Chances by Jenny Bayliss
Loved it! Such a lovely, feel good story. ‘The Winter of Second Chances’ is a book that made me feel all warm and fuzzy, perfect for those cold winter nights. Highly recommended!
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
I Loved it! Throughout the book the main character Kya experiences racism, violence, discrimination and prejudice all of which make this book a great book club choice as there are so many talking points.
The Dare by Lesley Kara
This story has lots of twists and turns and throws in quite a few curveballs I wasn’t expecting. It’s full of drama, dark secrets and surprises. A very well written book!
Why Mummy’ Sloshed by Gill Sims
Why Mummy’s Sloshed’ is just as funny as its predecessors and if you have not yet read any of the books in the series then I would highly recommend that you do.
