Whoops! Guess who totally lost track of time! Again! This was supposed to go out on the 26th. Alas, here we are.
2021 was a wild ride. It feels like it shouldn’t be over yet. I saw a post the other day about how the Ever Given got stuck this year and about had a conniption, because I would have sworn up and down that it happened last year. Really messed up perception of time happening here, can you tell?
Anyway, like I’ve been doing every year now for a few years, I randomly picked 21 books from my TBR that I HAD to read in 2021. At this point it’s a tried and true tradition because, yet again, I actually got them all read. AND almost all the sequels! (Some of them are dragging, but I digress…)

I’ll be honest, I forgot I read some of these this year. I thought I read The Unexpected Everything last year? Apparently not. Weird.
I think I enjoyed the books better this year overall, though! Compared to last year, at least. A few five-stars!
My 22 in 2022 will be coming out a little later today if you’re interested in that. I’m pretty excited for some of the books I pulled!
Thanks for reading!
