2021 Reading List

Nearly every book on this year’s list is part of a series of books. I’ve wanted to read a lot of these books for many years and have never gotten around to them. I’m dropping the 52-book requirement this year as most of these books are longer than usual.

Books 1 – 7

The Chronicles of Narnia

These are some of the first books I remember reading as a child and I’ve never read the full set.
