What I Read in Q4’21

Dec 21, 2021 | Book Recommendations

Each quarter I post a list of what I have read with a few pithy thoughts on each. Here is the final rundown for 2021.

I curate the full list to my top-ten for the year – available here

You can find – Q1’s version, Q2’s version, Q3’s version






  • Brad Thor’s Lions of Lucerne, Path of the Assassin, State of the Union, Blowback, Take Down, and The First Commandment – I don’t read a lot of non-fiction that said – a hat tip to Bill H for highlighting Thor’s Scott Harvath series. Each is fairly short, with a high action plot line that is super entertaining. My guess is that these will start being produced into films in the not too distant future.
  • CS Lewis – Magician’s Nephew and The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe – I’ve only read Wardrobe, and realized I had been remiss in not reading the whole Narnia series. It takes a truly masterful author to write a children’s book that is well crafted for adults. Authors like EB White immediately come to mind in this category, but Lewis is at another level. The creation scene of Narnia in Magician’s Nephew is some of the most powerful, beautiful writing I have encountered.
