Blogmas Day Twenty-Eight (Part One): Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Best Books of 2021

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is ten of the best books I read in 2021. I’ll do a few of these lists more in-depth next month, so here’s a sort of preview.

Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao

A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers
