6 Month Book Dump

The first six months of the year have FLOWN BY! Does anyone else feel this way? I had planned to do a reading update or book reviews earlier but I just never got around to it. So now you get a 6 Month Book Dump!

Last year I did my 50 in 52 weeks challenge, but with working more this year I decided to cut it down to 45 books for 2022.  

The count as of this first week of July, I have read 23/45. 

I am slightly behind what I thought I would be at but am not too worried. As not to overwhelm with 22 separate reviews I am going to review one book for each month. A complete list of the books I’ve read will be at the end of the post!

2021 in BOOKS- 50 in 52 Challenge Results

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe I am already writing the wrap up of all the books I read in 2021. If you read my first post last year “50 books in 52 weeks,” then you know I had a goal to read 50 books with at least 40 of them being new books (since I always just reread a ton of books every year).

In Total for 2021 I read

Total Books- 55

9 Rereads     –     46 New Books

* Indicates reread

5 more than my goal and actually succeeded with reading way more new books than rereads this year, which I am pleasantly surprised with.

I think that 55 books may be a tad bit too many to write a review on each one individually. Can you imagine how long that post would be?? So instead I am going to give you a list of everything I read each month with their ratings, and choose one from each month to write a short review on. 

I hope this gives you some ideas of books you can add to your own reading list for the new year!

50 Books in 52 Weeks Challenge- A list of books I hope to read this year

Ever since I was little I have loved to read. I devoured the Magic Tree House books, every book by Beverly Cleary and Andrew Clements that my elementary school library had, and I won Summer Reading programs at the library by having the most books done in two weeks. I just love reading.

 

This year I am adding a twist to my normal reading challenge. Every year I try to read at least 40 books and normally over half of these books end up being rereads.

Thank you to everyone who has followed along with me on this journey of blogging. Now ONTO THE POST!

Today I am fiiiiinally getting around to reviewing The Princess Bride after I said I wanted to read it… during 2019. Better late than never though! I bought the book right before coming back to school this semester and finished it a few weeks ago.

If you didn’t know The Princess Bride movie was in fact a book first by the same man who wrote the screenplay William Goldman.

If they can do it they will be rich beyond their wildest dreams and free to do what they please, if they fail they may die and just doom the whole world with them. Continue reading
