My Best and Worst of 2021

Want to know my top 5 and bottom 5 books of 2021? Of course you do … or you wouldn’t be here. Most of it is romance, since that was the bulk of the ~240 books I read this year, but one history book makes the best list … and of course it’s about Richard Nixon. What a year. Onto 2022!


2021 Q1 Wrap Up | 32 Books Between Jan and Mar

I tried so very, very hard to make this quick, but 32 books do not make for a fast time, even though I’ve already reviewed many of these on the channel.

You can also skip towards the end to get my top pick so far in each category. Enjoy!

We created our own reading challenge | Reading Challenge Announcement

Wherein Gretchen and Michaela talk about the mini challenges they are plaining to use to help guide their buddy reads this year! We have been known in the past to use similar challenges to help us pick book club books and we also use them to help make sure that we are stepping out of our comfort zones and reading books that represent more than just our own experiences.
