AnAverageLife’s Top 10 Titles of 2021

This year was a difficult one for reading motivation, my current average book rating is 3.9. Even so, of the 53 titles I finished over the past year I awarded five star ratings to 19 of them! I’ve painfully narrowed those down to my top 10 below;

10.  Demon – Matt Wesolowski

The latest in Scott King’s Six Stories continues this series five star streak.

7. Dead Ground – M W Craven

After a late start to the Poe series I’m now a full fledged addict!
