The college.u 2021 Winter Book List - All Good Things to Come

I just read that Hygge is dead, and 2020 has compelled us to embrace "cozy." O.K. No matter how you want to think about 2020, e.g., "don't let the door hit you on the way out," I've been seeing glimmers of a silver lining from this past year in re-evaluating priorities, and picking up a positive habit or two. 2021 is on the horizon. While life may not wholly return to what we knew before 2020, why not peer into the future? Looking for books to read throughout the year? Sign up for Book Riot's Tailored Book Recommendations.

We've filled this college.u book list with personal favorites including "I Will Judge You By Your Bookshelf," by Grant Snider. In a world dominated by Zoom, we now are able to pay attention to what everyone is reading. If you haven't picked this amazing book up yet, add it to the top of your gift list for both young and old readers (and non-readers).
