I’m always terrible at answering prompts that ask for my “best” anything 😂 I know I’ve read some amazing books but it’s also been a very weird reading year? I’ve read a lot but I’ve had a hard time retaining much of what I’ve read but also, I’ve had a hard time focusing on reading, in general, this year! I’ve only had a few 5-star reads this year so it is a bit surprising that I’m having trouble picking a top 10… but in the end, I decided to not include series’ on the list and now, before I keep waffling on, let’s get to it!
I wanted to clump Jade War with Jade City because they are undoubtedly two of my best reads in 2021 but this series has quickly risen to the top of my all-time favourite books and series so I decided to just leave it at Jade City. I’ll be reading the finale, Jade Legacy, next year so these books will definitely be mentioned again (multiple times lol).
Joan He’s imagination and ability to beautifully craft such a gripping climate science-fiction mystery with raw and realistically flawed characters is astounding. Plus, this is probs one of my favourite covers of 2021! 😍
