Books in 2021

It is time for my yearly post about the books that I read in 2021. Last year has been interesting in terms of reading – some months I had lots of time to read when the baby was only taking her longer naps on me and I had to sit in a chair for hours and some months, especially after I went back to work, I had no time to open a book at all. In 2021, I was also reading more fiction and non-fiction – this is likely related to my sleep-deprived brain trying to find entertainment rather than useful scientific information. Nevertheless, here is a list of everything I read in 2021 with an * marking the books I especially liked:

  1. “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Backman
  2. “Emotional Agility” by Susan David
  3. “Wow, No Thank You” by Samantha Irby
  4. “All The Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr *
  5. “Between Two Kingdoms” by Suleika Jaouad
  6. “Agent Sonya” by Ben MacIntyre *
  7. “Anxious People” by Fredrik Backman
  8. “Writers and Lovers” by Lily King
  9. “Bookshop On The Shore” by Jenny Colgan
  10. “Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah *
  11. “Conversations with Friends” by Sally Rooney
  12. “Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine” by Gail Honeyman (not reviewed here)

This is definitely fewer books than I read in 2020 but this year has been a bit busier for a good reason. I am hoping in 2022 with my sabbatical coming up, I will have more time to for turning pages 🙂
