Best Books of 2021
Ever find a book you can’t put down? That’s what this list is comprised of–books we’ve lapped up like water to a starving soul who has stepped foot out of the desert. Some were published in 2021. Others? Well, they made their entrance in prior years but were read this year, staking their claim in our list of favorites.
(A huge thanks to the readers who responded with their favorites!)
Kristi’s Favorite Christian Novels
(There are soooo many, but here are three Christian fiction books that really stuck out to me this year. If you’d like to keep up with what I’m reading or have read, connect with me on Goodreads. Forwarning: Most titles as of late are fiction reads, but there are a few nonfiction Christian books swimming in that list, too.)
|Love and the Silver Lining, #2
By Tammy L. Gray
|All That Really Matters|
- Wildflowers from Winter by Katie Ganshert (This one’s a wee bit older, but SUCH a good read.)
|Summer, Sunrise Series #2|
|The Story People
By Heather Kaufman
|Someone Like You: A Novel
By Karen Kingsbury
By Francine Rivers
There’s nothing like a good read. With so many of my friends being writers, I can tell you, there are many solid Christian nonfiction books available on the market. Here are a couple of suggestions for your nightstand.
Kristi’s 2021 Christian Nonfiction Suggestion
2021 offered some great Christian nonfiction reads, but because I’m trying to strengthen my own fiction-writing muscle, I stuck with novels. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this devotional and even purchased it for a friend who was battling cancer. For a little more than the cost of a card, recipients can enjoy daily encouragement for days, not moments. 🙂
