2021 wrap up

Hi everyone! Hope you all are well. It’s been quite some time since I posted as I was busy with my academics. I know I’m a bit late for a 2021 wrap up but I wanted to share some of my favorite reads of 2021.

Reading wise I had a really good time in 2021. I read 102 books last year and I also discovered some really cool books too. The list of my favorite books is given below.

The seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid:

Evelyn Hugo was once a very famous, sensual, and controversial actress in the ’60s, Now at the age of 79, she decides to give a final interview to Monique Grant. In the interview, she talks about her controversial life choices and gives a glimpse of who Evelyn really is.

Some characters give us the courage and a perspective that is totally different from everything. Evelyn is one such character. Her personality and charms just stick with you. Im really happy to read about Evelyn, she is a darling!

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom:

Morrie, a sociology professor, is diagnosed with ALS and he is shocked to know that he is going to gradually die. But this does not stop the professor to succumb to the pain and suffering. When Mitch reached out to his professor after seeing him in Nighttime, Morrie wanted to give his student final lectures on life, love, and death every Tuesday.

The whole concept of the book is about Morrie teaching Mitch about loving people with no hesitation, forgiving others and himself for the things you may regret doing. Overall this book will make you cry and smile. Such an insightful book with an in-depth message.

Dark matter by Blake Crouch:

Everything was normal and going according to the routine in Jason’s life. But one day when he woke up, all he has ever known is not anymore. His wife is not his wife, his son is not born and he is not working where he should be. Confused and in a daze, Jason unveils many unimaginable secrets.

When I first picked this I really didn’t imagine such huge twists and turns. But wow! the author has done such an awesome job. This is one of the books where you get hooked from the first chapter. Do check it out if you like sci-fi mystery thrillers.

Intriguing book:

The lost manuscript by Cathy Bonidan:

Anne-Lise finds a manuscript in a hotel. As a naturally curious person, she tries to find the author of the manuscript. She meets many interesting people, on her journey to find the author.

This book is all about people coming together because of their shared interest in books and a knack to write letters. The reason why I said this book is a unique read is that the whole book is written in the form of letters written between the characters.

This is the first time I have seen such a unique composition for a book. The fascinating part is if you are a person who likes to write letters then you will definitely find this book interesting. Storywise, this book has a very simple plot with realistic characters.

These are my favorite reads of 2021, do let me know your favorite books in the comments!
