Best Books of 2021

I read 134 books this year (so far) and I’m still reading. But the following is a list of all the fiction books that received 5 Sparklers in reviews. That doesn’t mean the 4 Sparklers were bad books – they just didn’t have that special something for me that meant I’d read it again. So here are my top reads of 2021 in alphabetical order by title:
