Hello 2022, bookish friends!!
I’ve been looking forward to this post for the last few months. I always enjoy looking back on my reading years and remembering all the books I read and posts I wrote. As the years have gone by, I am continually grateful for my little blog. This blog has helped me find balance in my life as I continue to give priority to reading and books. And I think 2021 was my best year yet!
I finished 105 books!
This is such a big deal for me! I have never read 100 books in a single year before (not counting the dozens of picture books I read with my kids). And so I feel so much accomplishment at having finished this challenge to read 100 books. Especially in a busy year like this one.
- 9 Newbery Winners (plus several Newbery Honors)
- 28 Rereads (including Percy Jackson, The Penderwicks, Fablehaven & Dragonwatch)
- 10 ARC Novels Released in 2021
- 12 Read Alouds
I published 71 posts.
- I reviewed 49 books and series.
- I shared 5 book lists.
Overall, I did well on my goals I set at the start of 2021! I met my books read goal which was huge. I read more 2021 releases and more read alouds than I hoped. I modified my Newbery Challenge in 2021 so I don’t have as strict of a deadline for finishing which has made it less stressful. But I didn’t read as many as I had hoped to. What a year!
As usual, I have high hopes for 2022! Although, I feel like these goals are a bit simpler than in years past. Life is hectic and I want reading to be peaceful. Here’s what I am hoping to accomplish!
Read 100 books
Read 1 Newbery Winner a month
Start my 2nd Classics Club list
Write more reviews (and not be so behind!)
Here we go in 2022! It’s going to be a great year!
What are your goals in 2022?
