A new year has begun and so has my yearly Book Challenges. I am renewing my goal of 50 books this year. I’ve felt that I’ve been spending so much time doing unnecessary things like watching youtube and scrolling when I could be reading so I’m back on 50 in 52 weeks!
With the end of January, I am off to a promising start but the problem is, I have very few books on my To-be Read List. In need of recommendations, STAT! Please flood my messages with books you think I need to read and I will add them to the list for this year 🙂
5 Books read within the first four weeks of 2023. Here is how they were:
Reading has felt slow this year. I haven’t felt too excited about any books lately. Lots of decent books but not much that was WOW. My favorite book of the year was probably The King of Attolia. I really enjoyed reading the whole series and miss the characters. You can read my review of that book in my 6 Months of Books post.
With starting a full time job I scaled back my book goal to 45 books and just scraped by with it after reading 7 books in December. Without further ado, here are reviews of a book from each month.
(You can find the full list of books read this year at the end of the post)
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!
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!
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.
