3.5s and up for 2021

Here is the list of books that are 3.5 and up for 2021, IMHO:

4.25 - 
The Clover Girls - Viola Shipman (yes, I know that 4.0 is supposed to be my highest rating)

4.0+ -
The Rose Code - Kate Quinn (see the 4.25 above)

4.0 - 
Three Words for Good-Bye - Hazel Gaynor & Heather Webb
Peeps - Erin Gordon
The Women of Chateau Lafayette - Stephanie Dray
The Pilot's Daughter - Meredith Jaeger

3.75 -
The Lost and Found Bookshop - Susan Wiggs
The Four Winds - Kristin Hannah
The Storyteller's Secret - Sejal Badani
Lilac Girls - Martha Hall Kelly
The Forest of Vanishing Stars - Kristin Harmel
The Samurai's Garden - Gail Tsukiyama
What the Lady Wants - Renee Rosen
The Other Einstein - Marie Benedict
A Year in the Life - Lucy Leonelli

3.625 -
The Younger Wife - Sally Hepworth (yes, I know that this is an odd rating)

3.5 -
Posing Naked - Betty Auchard
Have You Seen Luis Vellez? - Catherine Ryan Hyde
Winter Garden - Kristin Hannah
Faye, Faraway - Helen Fisher
The Nature of Fragile Things - Susan Meissner
We Came Here to Forget - Andrea Dunlop
How to Save a Life - Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke
The People We Keep - Allison Larkin
The World Played Chess - Robert Dugoni
The Henna Artist - Alka Joshi
Heard It in a Love Song - Tracey Garvis Graves
Shattered - C. Lee McKenzie

I've got 2 other 3.5s that I read for my job as a professional reviewer for a publicist.  The reason I am listing these separately is that they are not novels.  One is inspirational, and the other is historical:

4 Ideas with Actionable Wisdom - Bob Boylan
100 of the Worst Ideas in History - Michael Smith & Eric Kasum

Get reading, people!
