Wrap Up: 2021 in Books

It’s time to do a wrap up of all the books I read last year! I hit my goal of reading 35 books by reading 36. I am pleased I managed to read so many, despite having a bit of a rough year health-wise. I ended the year with quite a few audiobooks as I’ve been struggling with back and shoulder pain. Because of this continuing issue, I have set a lower goal for 2022 to avoid any unnecessary pressure, and am aiming to read 25 books.

I started using StoryGraph in 2021 and the site comes with some very interesting graphs! I seem to read a fairly even amount of slow/medium/fast paced books, which isn’t surprising as I do like to mix it up and read a variety of paces. It seems I don’t read many short books, generally going for medium length. I mostly read print books in 2021, but did read a lot more audiobooks than in 2020. I expect I’ll probably read mostly audiobooks this year, depending how I get on at the hospital and whether my health improves.

2021 was a fantastic reading year and I can’t wait to see what new books I discover in 2022! How was your reading year, what books did you love? Chat with me in the comments!
