THE BEST BOOKS WE READ IN 2021

Amid all the chaos, we enjoyed doing one; Reading lots of books. Looking back, each book gives me different memories of Nathan. While I was rummaging the bookshelf, each book took me to every conversation I had with him. Kinda for some time, I was lost in the world of books, and here I am posting this list of books that we read multiple times this year.

There are many books I would love to include in the list, but these books were shown extra love by him. Hope you all find this list useful.

Inside Out Shark

Still one of the favourite book for Nathan. 

Inside Out: Sharks explores some of the most fearsome creatures to swim our seas. Layer by layer, the body systems of the great white are explored. Paired with each segment are tons of interesting tidbits of info about diet, and lifestyle, though the author does tell us little is truly understood about these magnificent, deadly hunters.
