Top Ten Fiction and Non-Fiction Books Second Quarter 2021

Top Ten Fiction and Non-Fiction Books Second Quarter 2021

It has been a good first half of the year. Many great reads. I have read just over a book a day. I have read 201 books so far this year and 104 of them this quarter.

This past year and a half have been different year for us all. Last year I had about a 15% drop in my reading totals. I am very happy with the first half of this year, and especially this quarter. Reading and reviewing books is my hobby, I am grateful to be able to do so. 

Back to this quarter. By the numbers:

Books Read: 104
First Time Reads: 95
Fiction: 33
Non-Fiction: 56
5/5 Stars: 85

Here is my top ten fiction and non-fiction books of the fourth quarter of 2020.

This year was my fastest to 200 books read, it took me 173 days. There were so many great reads so far this year. It was very hard picking the top ten. You should check out my Favorite Books Year by Year list.

Note: I do not include books that have been read in previous years and were reread this year in my top ten lists; they are in sometimes in the bonus section. It was not easy again this quarter, making my picks.
