*Some of* The Best Fiction of 2021

There were a lot of things about 2021 that were lacking, but literature wasn’t one of them. Such a wealth of wonderful fiction came out last year, we had trouble keeping this list to only ten titles (and it pained us to leave others off) but we feel we’ve put together a pretty stellar selection here.

Stop in to pick up any of these books and discuss our other 2021 fiction favorites, or shop from us online! Want to give the gift of a great read but can’t choose? Get a Theodore’s Books gift card!
