Every book I read in 2021

Last year, I did a blog post rounding up every book I read in 2020, and I loved having all of them and their ratings in one single post. So, naturally, I'm doing it again!

I didn't read nearly as much in 2021 as I had hoped (didn't even make my reading goal of 50 books) but I found some absolute favourites and I'd still call reading 42 books a win. So here's everything I read last year! I've linked all my recent reads on each title, as well as any individual reviews I made if you'd like to know my in-depth thoughts about any particular book. And if you want to know which ones were my favourites, that post is coming in a couple of days.

That's it! I'm still very happy with how many books I managed to read between having a full-time job and being in a slump for months. I'm hoping to read a lot more in 2022 though! Tell me, how many books did you read last year? Did you manage to reach your goal?


Love,

N.
