December 2021 Book Reviews Wrap Up

December 2021 Wrap up

December was a great month for reading and a great way to wrap up the year! I read:

  • FIVE Kindle Unlimited books!,
  • Two books from the library (Kindle version),
  • One book an author asked me to read and review, and
  • One Audible book

Four of the books I read in December were romance books which I do not review, but I will say the Holiday Brothers series by Willa Nash was super cute!

At the beginning of 2021 I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge as 24 books. That’s typically a good pace for me2 books per month. However, mid-year when I hit the 24 books super early, I decided to increase my goal to 52 books1 per week. Not only did I hit that goal as well, but I exceeded it. I finished the year with 63 books completed!

There were a few things that helped me exceed my goal this year:

  1. I was very consistent all year around my reading habits. I typically read 10 pages of a non-fiction book every day, a chapter or so of a fiction book at night before bed, and I listen to an audiobook whenever I’m driving alone.
  2. I joined BookTok (the community of readers on TikTok) and started meeting other book lovers and getting motivated by their videos and reading recommendations.
  3. I purchased a new Kindle toward the end of the year and signed up for Kindle Unlimited.

In the end, 2021 was a great year for reading. I’m looking forward to seeing how 2022 goes.

Here’s a recap of (most of) the books I reviewed in December in case you missed them:

  1. I have posted a few on BookTok, but don’t know if I have the time to give to it. I’ll probably remain working more on my blog and Instagram. —-I’ll have to check your posts out on TikTok.
