#150 Top ten posts of 2021

10. Reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Adapted into a successful film, the tenth most popular post of the year was my review of Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. The book examines memories and old age as well as the tough life of those working in the circus during the depression, well worth a read

9. Living with the headless mule

Ninth on the list is a post explaining the story behind my fifth novel, Living with the Headless Mule from 2019. The novel is the prequel/sequel to my first novel Living with Saci, however, at the moment, I have withdrawn both novels from sale as I intend to relaunch them both in 2022 with new covers and new titles.

8. Extract of Collapse

My most recent post made it to number eight with chapter one of my latest dystopian release, Collapse. Second in the series of the same name, Collapse, tells the story of what happens when the lights go out for good.

7. Arguments against black lives matter

I wrote this post almost exactly a year ago following an argument with someone who claimed that black people were spoilt. I was so furious that I had to write the article to exorcise the rage I fwas feeling.

6. Reading Pinball 1973 Haruki Murakami

Sixth on the list is another review, this time Pinball 1973 by Haruki Murakami. I had already read a couple of books by Murakami and picked this one up as a two for one deal with audible.

5. Reading Utopia Avenue by David Mitchell

Another review, this time of a book by one of my favourite authors, David Mitchell. He is possibly the only author whose work I will read as soon as I am aware it is released.

4. Having an endoscopy

At number four, the description of my endoscopy seems remarkably popular, especially considering it was posted back in October 2019.

3. Reading The Angel by Mark Dawson

Yet another review at number three, this time by fellow self published author, Mark Dawson. Mark is incredibly successful and I wanted to find out what all the fuss was about.

2 Interviewing J J Toner

The second most popular post of 2021 was an interview with fellow independent author, JJ Toner.

  1. 1.Trying to get a Brazilian driving license

The most popular post for the second year running, and by quite a large margin was my account of trying to get a Brazilian driving license. I suspect the post must be registering well on search engines but who am I to complain, at least it drives traffic to the site.

Hope you enjoyed this year’s posts, I’ll be back in 2022 with plenty more
