The Book List 2021

A PROMISED LAND by Barack Obama

The honours for my first finished book of 2021 goes to none other than Barack Obama. It’s fair to say that most of the 700+ pages were actually read in 2020, but it’s not a bad volume start this year’s list off.


LESS by Andrew Sean Greer

A novel about a failing writer on the run. It is pacey and quirky with plenty of ironic humour. It felt lightweight, both physically and metaphorically after Obama’s opus.


MOTHERWELL – A GIRLHOOD by Deborah Orr

A gorgeously written memoir of childhood from an extraordinary writer. There have been tears, many tears, a few giggles and occasional turning away from the pain on the page. Extraordinary.


THE PAINTED VEIL by W.W. Maugham

Fulfilling my manifesto pledge to read at least 6 books published more than 10 years during 2021. This certainly fitted the bill! A page turning exploration of love of status from the 1920’s.


STRANGE FLOWERS by Donal Ryan

Could. Not. Put. It. Down.
