BRP's favorite reads of 2021

 Before we turn our backs on 2021, it only makes sense that we reflect back on those books that lingered with us as we hunkered down and rode the waves of "Pandemic Year #2" (ugh! whatta year!). 

In no particular order (well, okay, in the order in which they were received), here are the BRP bloggers and their stated favorites from the-year-that-will-not-be-named-again (at least in this post):

Diana Hurwitz
Brynette Turner
Polly Iyer
Maryann Miller
What about you? If there's a book or series you read last year that stuck with you (in a good way!), please share in the comments below.

Wishing you all a good year ahead, with many good books to read and the time to read them!

Ann Parker authors the award-winning Silver Rush historical mystery series published by Poisoned Pen Press, an imprint of Sourcebooks. During the day, she wrangles words for a living as a science editor/writer and marketing communications specialist (which is basically a fancy term for "editor/writer"). Her midnight hours are devoted to scribbling fiction. Visit AnnParker.net for more information.


  1. I agree with Dani. Going to check some of these out. :-)

  2. Interesting that we all have different tastes. Thanks for compiling this, Ann.

  3. My to-be-read piles are going to topple over! Thank you all for your suggestions! :-)
