10 Best Good Books To Read For Adults Update 05/2022

Well, if you want to see how things are going, I’m finally going to post my list of the adult fiction books I’m most excited about for 2021 at the end of January. Better late than never…right? Take a look at my list of 2021 YA books to read if you like young adult books. I put it up this month. If you want to know what books I’m excited about and want to read, this list is for you!

Always, this list doesn’t tell you which books I think will be big sellers or get the most attention from the publisher. Instead, it tells you which books I think are worth reading. It makes me want to read them and I can’t wait to read them. During that year, they may be the stars of the show. During other years, they may not be as well-known as the stars. There is a lot of variety in these lists, and I think that’s what makes them so great. The must-read books for 2021 are going to look different on each list (and for me, even each year). Sure, most of the big media lists pick the most popular ones. But depending on the taste of the person who made the list, it can look very different! My tastes are all over the map. If I’ve made lists before, you know that I like a lot of different things. You should be able to find a genre you like. And if not, stay tuned for more lists based on different genres!

Each year, I can tell what I was really into or which types of books I liked a lot. There are a lot of books like Daisy Jones’s this year.

The Prophets by Robert Jones JrOut January 5, 2021

I don’t think this one is going to be easy to read, but it looks like it will be a powerful and moving book about two slaves and their forbidden love and intimacy, the betrayal that turns things bad on the plantation for them, and the solace they find there together. It’s all told from the point of view of different characters.

This movie looks like it’s going to be talked about a lot and become a classic.

The Push by Ashley AudrainOut January 5, 2021

This one is going to make people feel very, very different. Early readers have already been split on this one. They are the main characters in this psychological thriller about a mother and her daughter. It looks at how motherhood and mother-daughter relationships work, as well as the life-changing tragedy that changes their lives. Even in 2021 and beyond, it’s going to be one of the picks for your book club. Many triggering things, so I highly recommend reading reviews that have content warnings or talk about those things because this one is dark and scary.

The Divines by Ellie EatonOut January 19, 2021

Especially boarding school books, I love a good dark academia book. This one looks great. Girl: I used to be part of this rebellious, mean-girl clique when I was at boarding school. I haven’t talked to any of the other girls since the school closed its doors in shame.

There are new memories and a new understanding of what happened in the last few weeks leading up to the scandal that could change everything she thought she knew about herself and her past. She is now in her 30s.

Faye, Faraway by Helen FisherOut January 26, 2021

When I read Oona Out of Order, I was reminded how much I love time travel. This one is going to be a must-read book for me in 2021, and I can’t wait! Besides the fact that it’s time travel, it’s also a story about grief and the relationship between moms and kids. On these little trips back in time, the main character, a woman who has kids and lost her own mom when she was just 7, sees her mom and her younger self, and they become close. If she told the truth, she didn’t know how it would affect her in the present. She already wonders if these trips have an effect on her life. Because I wonder what it would be like to know my mom as an adult but can’t, I’m really interested in this idea. It also makes me a little teary-eyed.

The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn SolomonOut January 26, 2021

If you look at this list, you’ll see a lot of rom-coms. I’ve always been a fan of rom-coms, but I’ve been clinging to them ever since 2020.This is Rachel Lynn Solomon’s first book for adults. I love some of her YA books, so I’m very excited for this one!

During the production of a new show, she comes up with an idea for a show where two exes give relationship advice to her new coworker and her work nemesis, who is not her exes. She ends up having to host the show with her work nemesis and new coworker, who is not her exes. They find it more and more difficult to keep the lie and their feelings for each other a secret as the show gets more popular. Other Rachel Lynn Solomon books: The next night and the next day, you’ll miss me when I’m gone. We can’t keep meeting like this.

The Heiress Gets A Duke by Harper St. George Out January 26, 2021

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I love romance books and sometimes write historical romance (though contemporary is my most favorite). I think historical romances are finally going to get the attention they deserve thanks to the popularity of Bridgerton. I think readers will be eager to read new books like this one.

If you like romances from the 1800s, this one is for you. It’s about two sisters who want to run their family business more than they want a husband, but the Duke wants to marry both of them. They both don’t want to marry him, but the Duke only has eyes for one of them.

Finlay Donovan is Killing It by Elle CosimanoOut February 2, 2021

If you like your mysteries to be a little more fun and a lot less dark than some of the popular ones, you should check out this one. It’s the first in a new series!

It’s about a struggling suspense writer and mother whose real life is becoming more and more like her books. When someone misunderstands what she’s saying, she gets tangled up in a murder for hire plot (which could help her with her money problems) for an awful man, and a lot of crazy things happen.

Good Neighbors by Sarah Langan Out February 2, 2021

I like books that go into the dark side of suburbia a little more than other books. People gossip and make up stories about each other in their neighborhood when a family is shunned or an accusation is made. It’s told in mixed media, with newspaper clippings and other things. It has been likened to Little Fires Everywhere. Sarah Langan has written other books, like The Keeper and Audrey’s Door.

How The One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House by Cherie Jones Out February 2, 2021

For the most part, the book is about a young woman named Lala who lives in Barbados. It tells the story of a robbery that was stopped, which leads to a violent act in a town that has both wealthy tourists and poor residents.

This Close To Okay by Leesa-Cross SmithOut February 2, 2021

During her drive home from work, she comes across a man who is about to jump off of a bridge. She gets him to walk away and go for a coffee with him. When they come back to her house, they start to help each other heal, reveal their own secrets, and find out why he was on the bridge. Also, Whiskey and Ribbons by Leena-Cross Smith is one of her other books.
