The books I read in 2021!

Hello friends,


It has been a while since I have last connected with you. I trust you are all doing well. As we bid farewell to 2021 and usher in 2022, I wish you a year full of blessings, health, joy, and peace of mind. Here in Canada, the measures to combat the spread of the newest Covid-19 variant are varied but have some things in common: more people are spending time at home.


So, should you be a bookworm such as myself, I am sharing with you the books that I have read in 2021 hoping they provide many hours of enlightenment, entertainment, or delicious meal planning (authors can also be foodies). So without further ado, here are the books that have kept me enthralled in 2021, divided into categories according to the genre.


I have added the kindle editions as they are more affordable, and the joy is instantaneous (no waiting time) but you can purchase the paperback versions by clicking on the links and choosing the format of your choice as some books have audible options as well! 


Genres profiled:

  • Historical Fiction & Non-Fiction
  • Personal Development Books
  • Francophilia
  • Cooking Books
  • Murder Mystery (Series and stand-alone books)
  • Victorian Crime Series
  • Welsh Medieval Mystery Series
  • Christian/Spiritual

I would love to hear from you should you end up reading one of these books! 

Happy reading, and see you in 2022!
