64 Bookish Adventures in 365 Days

The Real Life REBEL℠ BOOK Nerd lives between pages. Not a day goes by without me reading for leisure, research, or my creative work. I keep track of my leisure reading. Books I’ve read, want to read and favourite books are recorded on my Goodreads Profile, which is linked to my Kindle and to Amazon. The Goodreads Reading Challenge is fun. Reading 50 books was my target for 2021. At the close of the Reading Challenge, I had ramped up 64 fabulous fiction reads. Genres read, were a mix of Crime, Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, YA, Cozy Mystery, Adventure, Fantasy and Paranormal. The odd story had a hint of romance to it but was not outright classified under the Romance genre. Steamy Romance novels is not really a genre that I favour in reading. Chick-lit might make its way onto my reading pile on the odd occasion. My aim is to read 70 books this year, schedule permitting.

The Nerd’s TOP Books for 2021

Reading 64 books in 2021 means during most months more than one book was enjoyed. Here are the Real Life REBEL℠ BOOK Nerd’s favs. Some are packaged as a bundle or omnibus, but can also be purchased as single reads. I have conveniently supplied links to the books on Amazon, should you be interested in sampling any of the stories. There’s also a link to each author’s profile. Most of these authors have more than one book published on Amazon. I only read on Kindle or Kindle App for iPad, so all the books I enjoyed were eBooks.
