My #MustReadin2021 List


Back in 2014, I joined Carrie Gelson at There's a Book for That who started a little community of readers with a common goal - to tackle our to-be-read stacks. This year I have agreed to co-host this small community. It is one day before the end of the month, and I am just now finalizing my list and writing this post.

I have boxes of books that I have not yet read but want to. I opened each one and pulled out twelve titles to use for this year-long challenge. I am following Michele Knott's lead and will try one each month. Sounds easy enough, huh?

Here is my #MustReadin2021 challenge titles.

The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys
Cod Word Courage by Kirby Larson
We Had to Be Brave by Deborah Hapkinson

Unbound by Ann E. Burg
Takedown by Laura Shovan
Wild Bird by Wendelin Van Draanen

The Season of Styz Malone by Kekia Magoon
Poisoned by Jennifer Donnelly
Pride by Ibi Zoboi

The Usung Hero of Birdsong USA by Brenda Woods
Team Players by Mike Lupica
Captured by Alvin Townley

Our town has a Triathlon each spring, and there is always one person they choose to be "last to try." This way no one comes in last. I'll consider this to be the last to post so no one will feel like they are too late to participate.

If you would like to read more about #MustReadin2021 or see the great book choices of other members of this community, then check out this blog post. We would love to have you join us no matter what the time of year.

Happy Reading!


  1. When I saw your post, I thought, "Oh, no! Is this a check-in?" Ah, but no. I haven't read any of the books on your list except TakeDown. I tend to start books and never finish them. That's where I am with my list so far, a few books started...

  2. I have read Fountains of Silence and Takedown, loved them both, now added some of these to a long list, always adding, right? I know I need to read the Hopkinson book, sure it will be good. Happy to read your list, Leigh Anne!
