My list of the top ten books that I read in 2021!
*They are in no particular order as I couldn’t possibly rank them
Tumblr media
“We all know how loving ends. But I want to fall in love with the world anyway, to let it crack me open. I want to feel what there is to feel while I am here.” The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green-
This is the first time that a nonfiction book has ever made my list and it was just so amazing! It was introspective and thoughtful and made me cry over how beautiful humanity can be. Five out of five stars.
Tumblr media
“But that is how a tragedy like ours or King Lear breaks your heart—by making you believe that the ending might still be happy, until the very last minute.” If We Were Villains by M.L Rio-
Completely destroyed my spirit and I fear I will never recover from the devastation but I enjoyed every minute of it. It was a perfect ode to the great bard himself- just as poetic and just as tragic.
Tumblr media
“I don’t need you to explain to me the concept of a magical land filled with fantastic creatures that only certain special children can enter. I am acquainted with the last several centuries of popular culture. There are books. And cartoons, for the illiterate.”
In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan- This book is a hug and a sunny day. I don’t think I ever stopped smiling while reading. Endearing characters and friendships, so much humor and I LOVED how it poked fun at common fantasy tropes. Elliot is such a unique MC and I adore him.
Tumblr media
“Just as it is in Malibu’s nature to burn, so was it in one particular person’s nature to set fire and walk away.” Malibu Rising by Taylor Reid Jenkins-
This book took me completely by surprise. It touched my heart in a way I didn’t expect. I’ve always been such a sucker for stories with deep family bonds especially between siblings and I loved the relationships between them. Though I hate Mick Riva so much
Tumblr media
“My name is Rune Saint John. I am, before anything else, a survivor:” The Tarot Sequence by K.D Edwards-
I already knew I was going to love this series the moment I heard it was based off tarot and featured urban fantasy (my favorite genre). But I didn’t realize how much. So much sass and sarcasm that it should be spilling off the pages, amazing characters, top tier found family trope, action, angst, it pretty much has everything.
Tumblr media
“I thought I cannot bear this world a moment longer.”
“Then, child, make another.” -Circe by Madeline Miller
Given how much I loved TSOA (and Greek mythology in general) I’m ashamed of how long it took me to read this book. It absolutely blew me away. It was lyrical and rich and powerful. It showed the gods in all of their mercurial cruelty and Circe was such a well written character. She was flawed, but found her own strength and tried for redemption. (I also totally didn’t get teary eyed at the mention of Achilles and Patroclus)
Tumblr media
“You’ve been living a dream long enough. Welcome to your nightmare!” -Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao
The book was wild and feral and I LOVED it. I deeply appreciated a female MC being unapologetically her worst self and I need to see more of that. Plus the poly rep!! The three of them are just too perfect and I can’t wait to see what’s to come.
Tumblr media
“I don't think happily ever after is something that happens to you, Dev. I think it's something you choose to do for yourself.” -Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun
So wholesome! So pure! This book just made me incredibly happy and it was impossible not to root for the characters. It was just so well done and a fun time. Plus the absolute delight of getting surprise ace spec rep when I wasn’t expecting it!! *chefs kisses*
Tumblr media
“Sometimes, if you want to save other people, you need to remember to save yourself first.” -Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson
This was one of my most anticipated books of the year and it didn’t disappoint! Artemisia and the Revenant’s relationship was one of my favorite things. It was wonderfully dark, had amazing characters and I just cannot wait to see where this story goes from here.
Tumblr media
“The bright star holds, even as the darkness rises.” -Dark Rise by C.S Pacat
I’m actually still reading this one but I love it so much that it had to go on the list! I am so here for the fantasy world building, characters, the slow burn just everything! Though given everyone's reactions I’m scared to see how it ends 😂

when john green wrote “to fall in love with the world isn’t to ignore or overlook suffering, both human and otherwise. for me anyway, to fall in love with the world is to look up at the night sky and feel your mind swim before the beauty and the distance of the stars. it is to hold your children while they cry, to watch as the sycamore trees leaf out in june. when my breastbone starts to hurt, and my throat tightens, and tears well in my eyes, i want to look away from feeling. i want to deflect with irony, or anything else that will keep me from feeling directly. we all know how loving ends. but i want to fall in love with the world anyway, to let it crack me open. i want to feel what there is to feel while i am here”

It can sometimes feel like loving the beauty that surrounds us is somehow disrespectful to the many horrors that also surround us. But mostly, I think I’m just scared that if I show the world my belly, it will devour me. And so I wear the armor of cynicism and hide behind the great walls of irony and only glimpse beauty with my back turned to it.

“I know the world will survive us—and in some ways it will be more alive. More birdsong. More creatures roaming around. More plants cracking through our pavement, rewilding the planet we terraformed. I imagine coyotes sleeping in the ruins of the homes we built. I imagine our plastic still washing up on beaches hundreds of years after the last of us is gone. I imagine moths, having no artificial lights toward which to fly, turning back to the moon.”
The Anthropocene Reviewed, John Green

I wanted to understand the contradiction of human power: We are at once far too powerful and not nearly powerful enough. We are powerful enough to radically reshape Earth's climate and biodiversity, but not powerful enough to choose how we reshape them. We are so powerful that we have escaped our planet's atmosphere. But we are not powerful enough to save those we love from suffering.

... when humanity protects the frail among us, and works to ensure their survival, the human project as a whole gets stronger.

“And yes home is that house where you no longer live. Home is before and you live in after.” these words were read at a corner coffee shop in Sausalito, thousands of miles from everyone and everything.

based on my extensive literature knowledge and my eloquence in language as well as comfort in social settings, i have come to the conclusion that ASDJLASDJK is the most profound thing you can say via text conversations and it's the one thing that delivers almost all of your emotions
