  1. wait, what?! I read more books in 2021 than you did?! the world really is tilting funny. :D Did you not read the TJ Klune? You'd like it. Looking at this list, we had 2 books we both read this year and I've already forgotten which - the Murderbot one. oh! Hamnet, too. Happy New Year, Friend!

    1. Yep, you totally left me in your dust, this year. LOL And, good for you!! I have not read the TJ Klune, yet -- the first one, I have: The House on the Cerulean Sea, I think? I don't have the newer title but I was just looking at Cerulean, this morning, and thinking I need to get to it soon. Murderbot and Hamnet are excellent books to share having read! Happy New Year!
