An Update on My 2021 Must Read List

At the start of the year, I made a list of books I planned to read in 2021 along with the #MustReadin2021 community. This is an update on the progress I've made with my list. Updates from other bloggers can be found at Library Matters or by following the hashtag on Twitter.

Picture Books I Have Read


All of these picture books were fantastic!

Picture Books I Have Not Yet Read

Because this book is not available at my library or local bookstore (before purchasing children's books I always preview first) I have not read it yet.

Middle Grade Books I Have Read


I enjoyed each of these middle grade reads. 

Adult Books I Have Read


I highly recommend all of these.

Adult Books I Have Not Read

I started to read Shiver, but it didn't capture me so I abandoned it. A few people have shared their thoughts with me about Of Women and Salt and I'm not sure if I'll end up picking it up.

Overall, I've made great progress with my list. I hope you've read some great books this year!


  1. Lovely collection to read! I loved Outside Inside & Sheepish, need to read some of the others! I've not read any of the middle grades, although I have a couple of them. I read The Four Winds, amazing story. It was horrifying how hard they had to work. Thanks for coming by my post, Lisa. I had forgotten about these posts! Have a lovely Sunday!

  2. I have read quite a few of your picture book titles, but as usual, I am behind on middle grade novels. I see some that I'll want to pick up though. :)

  3. Like Crystal, some of your picture books are familiar to me. The Lion of Mars is on my list, but I just haven't made time for it. There are so many books I want to read, and not nearly enough time!
