Jan’s Top Ten Books from 2021 @CaroFrostWrites @bsmithnovelist @97_taylormoore @m_morganauthor @DWallacePeach @OverbeckRandy @colleenhoover @maeclair1 @joanhallwrites @michaelsvoice_2 @McConaughey´┐╝´┐╝

Choosing a Top Ten list was harder this year than ever before. I read 91 books in 2021, and believe me, choosing just ten took a while. The books listed here affected my life and they linger still. I hope you see something new that piques your interest!

The purchase links are on the images if you see one you want to grab.

And before I close out the year, I want to pay tribute to an author who passed away in 2021. Suzanne Burke was bold in her writing and delved deep into the psyche of twisted characters. But the book that changed me forever, was her memoir, EMPTY CHAIRS. The horrific abuse she suffered would destroy a lesser person, but not Sooz. She was a warrior.

May she rest in peace.
