Novels I Read in 2021

I didn’t get through as many novels in 2021 as I did in 2020 (33 novels this year vs. 54 last year). I got distracted by pop-culture gossip on YouTube starting in February after Disney fired Gina Carano, the actress who played Cara Dune in The Mandalorian. I also spent more time listening to podcasts. In fact, I had five Audible credits remaining before they disappeared from my account at the end of my 12-month billing period. For some reason I forgot the credits would expire and didn’t pay attention to when my billing period would end. Anyway, here are all the books I read in 2021. My favorites are listed at the end.
