2021 Reading Challenge

Updated: Mar 13, 2022

My original reading goal was to read at least 25 books this year, but since I've already read 36 by April, oops, I decided to up my goal. So let's see if I can get to 80 books!

Follow along with my reading and/or join in!

At the bottom of this post, I've included the links to each book

and the blank reading challenge templates if you want to start your own challenge!

Update: I read 103 books in 2021!! Insane!! That is the most I have ever read!

Do not expect me to read even close to this number again in 2022. LOL

Fun Facts:

1. I love my Kindle and real books but I actually do the

majority of my "reading" through Audible and Libby.

2. My favorite types of books are: mystery/thrillers and historical fiction.

3. I'm an avid Goodreads user. Become my Goodreads friend here!
