I Read 316 Books in 2021 & These 30 Are My Favourites

So, I read a lot of books last year and I don't quite know how I managed it! Today I have my favourite 30 books of the year to share and to save some time because this post could be a few miles long, I will share a tiny bit of what the book is about but if you want a little more, I will link my Goodreads shelf at the end which has my unedited thoughts on these books! These aren't in any particular order but a few of them I did read three or four times this year. All of these books obviously got five stars but I did give other books five stars this year, they just didn't make the favourites cut. 

1. Mr Spencer by T.L Swan

An age-gap romance that is one of my all time favourites so much so I have read it three times since it first released. 

2. Mr Garcia by T.L Swan

Another age-gap romance that I also read three times. So much drama that I can't quite contain myself with this one. 

3. The Casanova by T.L Swan 

A work place enemies to lovers romance. 

If you want to start reading T.L Swan's books, I would probably recommend starting with The Miles High Club series. I Love T's writing but I know they aren't for everyone.

I posted a full post review on this book here.
