by Lorna White |

While we stayed in and didn't go out as much as we hoped, 2021 was another year of lockdowns, isolation and uncertainty. And whether you got stuck into the gardening or worked on a house project, one thing we all enjoyed in 2021 was reading.

With so many brilliant books on the best seller list for 2021 here in the UK, we were spoilt for choice, with crime fiction books from Richard Osmon to practical help books from Stacey Solomon to choose from.

If you feel like you might have missed out on some of these best selling books and want to give them a read, we've rounded up some of our favourites that made the best seller list in 2021, with a real range of genres so there's something for everyone.
