A bookworm is happiest when they’re surrounded by books — both old and new. Undoubtedly, 2020 was a great year for fiction, with bestsellers like You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson and The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. In the realms of nonfiction and poetry, we loved works like All Boys Aren't Blue by George M. Johnson and Homie by Danez Smith, respectively. So, how does 2021 compare?
