My Year in Books 2021

2021 📚

What a year it’s been. The pandemic continued into its second year, our racial reckoning continued to be at the forefront of our social reality, a new Administration assumed office despite an insurrection that tried to halt that transfer of power, we experienced a K-shaped economic recovery that continued the trend of our growing wealth gap (but with some notable wins for working Americans), and we saw a lot from our politicians and legal system that was, at times, encouraging and, at other times, heart-breaking.

But books and podcasts were a chance for me to learn how to navigate our political, cultural, and theological times. It was a year for me of best-selling fiction, history, theology and faith, social commentary, children’s and middle grade lit, child and adult psychology, climate science, and even some poetry. And then I decided to introduce my podcasts to the mix. It was a good year of content – despite how difficult this year has been for us all.

Hope you find some good ones to add to your list! And more, I hope that you have a wonderful and safe end of 2021 & start of 2022.
