2021 Reads I Can’t Wait to Read Again

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

Sometimes you read a book and love it so much, you know it’s going to feature on your “currently reading” shelf again soon.

There are some such books I’ve read in 2021. Often, you just know you’ll pick the book up again, maybe even by the end of the year. Have you read any of these books?

Free Kindle Books on my TBR

One of the worst habits I’ve picked up recently is gathering free books for my Kindle. It feels like a good chance to try them out, especially if it’s a genre or trope I’ve never read. There doesn’t feel like anything to lose if I don’t love the book.

Review: The Lock In by Phoebe Luckhurst

Challenge prompt: A locked-in mystery

I’m also more than open to suggestions, I would love to find more LGBT stories from right across the spectrum. What recommendations do you have for me?

Books I Want To See More Books Like

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

So, I’ve put together below a list of the books I’ve really loved recently. If there’s anything you’ve read that’s somewhat like them, I’d really appreciate some recommendations.
