Top Reads of 2021

Top Reads of 2021

We’re approaching the end of the year, which means it’s time to take a look back, and the most fun part of that is looking back on the year’s reads! I’ve read 51 books thus far (just one shy of my goal!), most of them classics and nonfiction, and apparently most of them were good if my average rating for the year is 4.5 (thanks Goodreads).

I want to share the books that you’ll most likely find interesting, so this part one will be mostly fiction and the nonfiction that can be applied to writing, and I’ll do a part two looking at the more worldview-/theology-/life-related books on Within the Static for those who are interested in those as well. (There might be a couple of overlap books that end up on both lists.)
