Books I Read in 2021

Heya diamonds!

Now that it’s a new year, I have a lot of wrap-up posts to do! Today, I’ll be recapping all the books I read in 2021. Spoiler alert? I read a lot.

I’m going to be doing this a bit differently than last year. In the first half of this post, I’ll share some stats, some of my favorite books, that sort of thing. And then in the second half, I’ll just list every single book I read…no thoughts or anything. I think this will make it more interesting for the both of us!

  1. Whoa, girl, I’m just impressed at HOW MANY books you read in 2021 *mouth drops open* (And I was just SUPER excited when I saw Imagine listed under various favorites. THANK YOU!!!)

    But back to HOW did you read THAT many books???? *mind is blown* I read like 40 books. And my favorite read would be between Fawkes by Nadine Brandes or The Shattered Castle by Jennifer A. Nielsen!!

    1. Honestly me too…
      (AND YES IMAGINE WAS AWESOME)

      I don’t really know! A lot of short books? 40 is pretty good in my opinion. And I’d like to read both of those! I actually just bought Romanov and I think that’s by the same author of Fawkes.
