As the end of the year approaches, it’s time for my annual breakdown of what I’ve read this year, and sneak peek at what my reading list for the next year looks like.
2021 was a big year of re-reading for me, as I curled up with a number of past favorites to relax. It was also a year of rediscovering children’s books since I’ve been getting to read a few to my niece, and I expect to see that trend continue to grow next year as she becomes more interested in what the books say rather than how they taste.
As far as my reading goals, I did complete the last trilogy that had been making its way up my list for a few years, and I dove headfirst into Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse as planned. I did not, however, do a whole lot of reading on the nonfiction front, but maybe I’ll work harder at expanding that shelf in 2022.
As for the rest of my list, I’m super excited Marissa Meyer has a new fairy tale retelling, Gilded, out that I can’t wait to get my hands on, and Stephanie Garber has a new book set in the Caraval universe I’m also looking forward to. I hope to keep making my way through the Grishaverse books as well, and I’d like to give the newer trend of retellings based on Greek myths a try, but I haven’t decided exactly where to start with that yet as there are multiple highly rated ones currently making the rounds.
What about everybody else? What have you read in 2021? Any goals for 2022? Share your thoughts in the comments!
