2021 Book Superlatives

It is finally that time of year where we have read an impressive amount of books and now we need to rank them. I know I had a handful of books that drove me nuts and then I also had a decent sized stack that I really enjoyed. Now is the time to reveal all the good, bad and ugly from my 2021 reading pile.

Top Ten Books

In no particular order here are my top ten favorite reads of 2021


Book of the year

“Verity” by Colleen Hoover

Least favorite book

“Get a Life Chloe Brown” by Talia Hibbert

I don’t have a link to this review but honestly this book was by far my least favorite thing I read this year by a long shot.

Best Dressed (Prettiest Cover)

“The Lost Apothecary” by Sarah Penner

Most Likely to Make you Swoon

“The Love Hypothesis” by Ali Hazelwood

Most Likely to be reread

“One Last Stop” by Casey Mcquiston

Best Graphic Novel

“Black Lantern” by Chris Bodily

I don’t read a lot of graphic novels but I really love how this one came together! The cat was so cute too!

A book that walked the line of morality the best

“RazorBlade Tears” by S.A. Cosby

A book that was over hyped

“Where The Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens

A book that surprised me

“Crave” by Tracy Wolff

Character Awards

Favorite character

Olive from “The Love Hypothesis” by Ali Hazelwood

I felt like I could really relate to Olive in a lot of different ways. I thought she was very stubborn, she knew what she likes and she is very smart and independent. I love an independent lead woman character.

Least favorite character

Jasmine from “Desperate Measures” by Katee Robert

This book was a steamy spin off tale of Jasmine and Jaffar from Aladdin and the whole book was pretty cringe worthy. However, Jasmine just drove me nuts the whole book. If you hate a main character there is something really wrong.

Favorite couple

Jane and August from “One Last Stop” by Casey Mcquiston

These two were just so adorable! I couldn’t get enough of their relationship. Casey McQuiston for Christmas released an update for the characters written from Janes perspective and it was everything that I didn’t know I needed.
