My Top Ten Best Reads of 2021

Below are my top 10 books of the year! They may have made it on this list for different reasons. A relationship finally consummated. Love found. Strong women, honorable, respectful men. Funny. Emotional. Intriguing. For these reasons, and so many more, these books below are my top ten of the year.

10 (Loved) - 1 (Obsessed to an unhealthy degree)

10. Fated Throne

by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

Why: I started out having a really hard time with this series, because it starts off as a bully romance, and the first few books cover a week or two at a time, making the bullying last WAY longer than it needed to, in my opinion. By Fated Throne, I was HOOKED. Everyone is going through hell in this book, and it ends with you emotionally crippled - but the opposing sides of the first few books have bonded together, and makes this series worth the read. Of course its slightly ridiculous at times, but that is part of the fun!

9. Grace & Glory

by Jennifer L Armentrout

Why: I fell in love with this trilogy halfway through the first book. Trinity is a delight, and as someone who felt like Zayne needed a better ending in Jennifer's Dark Elements series, I was thrilled to see he was getting his own series. His own love story. But hell, Jennifer, why did these two have to go through ALL OF THAT for their HEA? WHY? haha. That being said, I loved the ending for this series.

8. Gleam

by Raven Kennedy

Why: Raven Kennedy has created a world here that is one of the most unique I have read. It may have started out as a King Midas retelling, but it snowballed into a story that grabs a hold of you, and takes you with it. I can't wait for the next book in the series next year.
