2021 Wrap-up

This is a LOOSE ranking of every book I finished in 2021.

Some have been accidentally flip-flopped, but overall, the highest rating novels are at the top. I think there’s about a dozen missing or forgotten about so check my reviews page under Cassie Swindon’s blog to read individual reviews. Do you agree with my ratings?
