My best reads for 2021

It’s always a bit arbitrary choosing my best reads for a year, but these are the books to which I awarded five stars on Goodreads. Many of them were published recently, which surprises me somewhat, as I usually borrow my books from the library and can’t always get new releases. There’s quite a pleasing spread between fiction, memoir and history, with more women writers than men.

The Yellow House (2019) by Sarah M. Broome (Memoir)

The Shadow King (2019) by Maaza Mengiste (Fiction)

The Lying Life of Adults (2020) by Elena Ferrante (Fiction)

Amnesia Road (2021) by Luke Stegemann (History)

Return to Uluru (2021) by Mark McKenna (History)

Fury (2021) by Kathryn Heyman (Memoir)

The Gun, the Ship and the Pen (2021) by Linda Colley (History)

The Women of Little Lon (2021) by Barbara Minchinton (History)

The Eye of the Sheep (2015) by Sophie Laguna (Fiction)

The Sweetness of Water (2021) by Nathan Harris (Fiction)
