Retrospection: 2021 in Pictures

It's almost the end of 2021; let's take a look at the year we've had!

2021 is almost over. It’s a year unlike any other, and many of us want to leave it and hope the next year will be better; we just want to leave the pandemic behind us, pretend this year never happened, and go back to normal. Thankfully, there were books. Let’s take a look at what literature has taught me this year; click on the links to find out more!

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson; how sometimes we have to find out our own truths.
The Fortnight in September by R.C. Sherriff; how holidays can inspire us to change our lives.
The Dig by John Preston; how archaeology teaches us not only about the past, but also about ourselves.
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami; how one song can take us back to the past.
Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney; how it is to be young.
Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell; how Shakespeare wrote one of his most famous plays.
Fleishman Is In Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner; how books can be feminist even if they’re about a man.
Serious by John McEnroe; how a spoiled tennis player looks back on his life.
American Utopia by David Byrne; how music can bring us all together.
