Hi Reader, I recently shared my 5 Star Reads of last year which can also read as my best books of 2021, but, there are books that I read that became favorites. These books rank between 3 to 4 stars, but for some reason or other, they made an impact and I found myself enjoying and loving them. I would even go ahead and say I do recommend them if you’re looking for something to read.

The books I’ll share are not necessarily published in 2021 it just so happens that I read them that year. I have 28 books on my list so I won’t add much to it and you can find synopsis on Goodreads, I really don’t want this to be a long post.

The ones I have reviews on I’ll link it and some books I’ll have reviews up in the coming months.
