Best of the Best: 2015-2021
Welcome to January and all the “Best Of” lists!
Inspired by Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog, I’m putting together my own “Best of the Best” list.
Each year that I’ve been blogging, I’ve put together a most memorable reads of the year list. This year I thought it would be fun to follow Davida’s lead and list my top SEVEN reads of the last SEVEN years and rank them in order. I’ve only been blogging for five years, but I started keeping records seven years ago, so I’m including all seven years. I’m also linking to my blog posts so that you can see the runners up if you’re curious.

(Preblogging) The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
(reviewed the first year I started blogging)
(Preblogging) Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi (not reviewed on the blog)
(I didn’t choose a favorite this year because I chose to use categories.) Looking back at the list now, I will have to choose Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman as my favorite of the year (not reviewed on blog). See my complete list for the year here: 2017 Really Recommendable Reads
Ranked in Order:
Ok….this isn’t my favorite thing to do but Davida has set the bar high, so I’ll give it a try! All of these are on my lifetime favorites list. They could all be #1. Tomorrow I might arrange them differently.
If you ranked your books over the past few years, which would be your #1 read?
Do you keep a list of favorites from year to year?
Happy Reading Book Buddies!

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”
