My Year In Books | 2021


How is it possible that we are here again already? Perhaps it is the stress and strain of, "Oh good God, can't these people just get vaccinated so we don't have to KEEP DOING THIS FOR ANOTHER GODDAMN YEAR?!?!"

Esther @ BiteIntoBooks is hosting her yearly meme once again. Take a look at your 'Year in Books' on Goodreads and post all your stats from 365 days of reading in 2021!

Revenge of the Sluts by Natalie  Walton

My first review of the year (on Goodreads, anyway). NOT good, yikes!

One by One by Ruth Ware

My last review of the year, not my fave of her work.

I will have my actual final numbers for my total books read in my Tackling the TBR wrap-up soon. These are the raw numbers from Goodreads that include all the chapter books Eleanor and I have read together.

What do your Goodreads numbers look like?

Happy Reading and Happy New Year!


  1. 357 BOOKS?!!? HOW!?!?

    I hope 2022 will be great for you :)

    Thanks for participating!

    1. About 100 of them were chapter books with Eleanor, so I don't count that as my final personal number of reads. It was around 220 I think? I can't remember already, and we are only two weeks into the new year! I hope 2022 will be an excellent year for you as well, happy reading!

  2. You always read very interesting books. So, it's great to see your goodreads "Year in Books". My link is in my Statistics which I'm sure you have seen. Thanks for your visit.

    1. Yes! Your stats are very impressive and detailed. I wish I had your patience!

    2. Once you retire, you will have that. LOL

    3. I know. I only do a smidgen of what I intended to but I try to do at least those things I enjoy. That's what retirement is for, right?

    4. Right! I wish I could get paid to just sit around all day and read. THAT would be the dream.

    5. That's more or less what retiring means to me. LOL

    6. Lol true, though my generation can't exactly count on our social security benefits at this point, because the money will all be gone by the time we can retire. I will probably be working until I am at least 70 :-/

    7. I know, that might be the case for many. It's already bad for our generation since most can't retire the way they imagined.

    8. Yep. My mom is a few years from retirement age and may not be able to. It's awful.

    9. I know. Wishing her all the best.

  3. Oh my gosh! What a great reading year!!

    1. It was fantastic! I did not hit my personal goal of 250 but it was still great. About 100 of the 357 were chapter books with my daughter. Even so, a great year and here is to 2022 being wonderful for both of us!


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
