I haven’t done a TTT in a while, but I always found it useful to unpack my favorites after half the year has gone by. In this case, there’s been a lot of Leigh Bardugo faves I read through this year, and I’m not even apologetic about it. Of course, there’s more to read the rest of the year, so this list is certainly changing (though there’d be a huge upheaval if Crooked Kingdom and Six of Crows get deposed off my top ten for 2021).
In order of most recently read to least recently read…
