Welcome to Tell Me Something Tuesday, where I tell you something . . . on a Tuesday! Today, we're talking about the best book covers of 2021. So, here are my 10 favorites. I'm surprised by how many of them have people on the cover. I thought I hated "people" covers. Maybe I'm becoming a convert? Or maybe publishers are just getting less awful at "people."

Top Ten Tuesday: Bestselling Book Recommendations

This post contains affiliate links. I earn a commission from qualifying purchases.

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Today, I'm going to recommend bestselling books that are worth reading. "Bestselling book" is surprisingly difficult to define. It seems like every website and bookstore keeps its own bestseller list. Self-published authors are constantly proclaiming their book the #1 bestseller of some obscure subgenre on Amazon. If everything is a bestseller, which bestseller list should I use for my blog post?

I decided to go full narcissist and talk about the books on my own blog's bestseller list. If you've been on this blog in the last two years, you've probably noticed my Buy it on Amazon and Buy it on Book Depository links. Those are affiliate links. I earn a few pennies whenever someone uses the links to buy a book. In two years, I've sold a few hundred books and earned a few hundred pennies. (Actually, I think the real amount is $200-something. So . . . 20,000+ pennies?) The links got me wondering about this blog's bestseller list. Which books are people buying most often?

Luckily, I have access to that data! (Don't worry, I only know which books people are buying, not who is buying them. That would be too creepy, even for my spooky ass.) So, here is my blog's bestseller list. I wrote it countdown style. For unnecessary drama.

Drumroll please . . .
