Thanks, Rebecca, for sharing your favorite books once again. I can't imagine how difficult it is to choose so few out of so many but these books look worthy of reading. The covers are some of the most appealing too. I really want to read a couple of these, especially The Prince of Spies! 

Check out Rebecca's Goodreads book list for these books and more reviews! If you’ve read any of her 2021 Top Reads, let us know in the comments. If not, share what you read this year and enjoyed. Do you have any recommendations for us?


  1. Rebecca, I only read Let It be Me but I wholeheartedly agree it deserved to be a Top Read. Wade is simply one of the best in Contemporary fiction.

  2. What a great list, Rebecca! I've read about 1/2 the books in your top reads & am inclined to agree with you. They definitely deserve to be there! There are a few on your list I haven't gotten to yet, but I plan on doing just that ASAP! I read at a much slower pace this year bc having Covid last January robbed me of alot of my concentration at times. But life happens & I'm grateful to have been able to read all the great books I did! Looking forward to 2022! It promises to be another great year for Christian fiction! Blessings, Anne & Rebecca!

    1. Diana, C really wreaks havoc with our stamina. I also had horrible brain fog for what seemed like forever. I can also attest to the fact that when you get sick from here on out with any virus, it is wicked on your system and takes much longer to recuperate. I hope you have a blessed 2022!!! Thanks for being such a great supporter here. Love ya, my friend!

    2. Thanks, Anne. So true. I had a stomach bug on & off for weeks, then a sinus infection that comes & goes. It's really been difficult. Love ya, girl, & am so blessed to have a friend like you! Wishing you many blessings in the upcoming New Year!

  3. Rebecca, we have similar tastes in books! I've read and loved 9 of these and have most of the others on my want-to-read list. Thanks for your lovely reviews!

    1. Thanks for your support, Winnie! Blessings for a joy-filled 2022!!!


I am so delighted that you've taken time to come by and comment. Blessings for a joy-filled day!
