Best book to start 2021 with!

First official 2021 book rec: Anxious People by Frederick Bachman

Seriously. This. Was. So. Good.
It was the perfect 2021 read! Not to mention the plot centers between December 30th (the day I started it) and January 1st (the day I finished it). It's a love story (not a Romance, that's different!) and a story about second chances and compassion and idiots. All of this is told through the lens of a hostage situation. It's not a crime story, it's a people story. It is dark but hopeful, harsh but compassionate, it's literally about the second chance that we all get with this new year! If House in the Cerulean Sea was the perfect sweet 2020 read to bring you comfort and togetherness, Anxious People is the 2021 book that tells us to keep moving and show compassion. You. All. Need. To. Read. It.
