Best Nonfiction of 2021 | Best Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, Romance & Graphic Novels of 2021 | Best Kids' and YA of 2021
Can a year’s worth of fiction really be distilled into a short list of the very best work? If you like a book, it’s good; there’s no value in snobbery. But there are always books that shift to the top of the pile, through exemplary prose, or intriguing situations, unusual characters, and narrators who see right through into the heart of you. This is the short list of the books that amazed us in 2021, and we think they’ll amaze you too.
