I’ve enjoyed others’ roundups of the media they’ve recently enjoyed (example). I’ve discovered some amazing books, music, and films this way (for the same reason recommendations from friends tend to beat aggregated reviews).

I thought I would look through my own highlights from 2021 in case it helps someone else find something they end up enjoying.

Ordering is totally arbitrary.
