2021 National Book Critics Circle Award Winners

While browsing the internet, I came across a post about the National Book Critics Circle Award Winners. Now, I am not a big fan of “critics” or experts. Nonetheless, I still want to support the authors that did win and help people find a new book or an author. So for that reason, I decided to post the winners.

Very passionate about basketball and sports in general but that's just the tip of the iceberg! An avid reader and may have read too many zombie books for my own good and always willing to explore new places and meet new people.
