Hello readers! 2022 seems to be moving at a snail’s pace because it feels like forever since I last sat down to write one of these posts. But the summer titles this year look very promising and it was no easy task to pick just ten for this list. Several of my favorite authors have books out this season, and they all look so amazing and I can’t wait to read them! Here are my top 10 most anticipated reads this summer!

Best of 2021 | Blogmas 2021: Day 20

Welcome to Day 20 of Blogmas 2021! It’s finally time to share the post I have been adding to all year – my best of shelf picks for 2021! My regular readers will know that I rarely rate a book above 4 stars and even fewer of those make this list. Of the 150+ books I’ve read so far this year, I’ve chosen 11 for this list – a slightly higher ratio than usual, but these books were simply too good to leave any out.

As a reminder of the criteria I use for this list, the book has to be published in the same year, I should have given it a rating of 4 stars or higher, with something that I felt made it stand out over the other books. The titles are just in publication order this year because if I started trying to rank them, this post would still be in my drafts. Without further ado, let’s check out my favorite books of 2021!

Welcome to Day 16 of Blogmas 2021! Another year is winding down, the holiday season is almost here, and one of my favorite things to do at this time of year is put together my TBR for the winter. I feel like there aren’t as many major releases this winter as usual, because this list was surprisingly easy to put together even though I limit myself to ten, but I’m looking forward to reading these in the coming months, along with many more!

We’re halfway through 2021, which means it’s time for the annual Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag! I love doing this tag each year because it’s such a great way to round up the past couple of months and highlight what upcoming titles I’m most excited about. 2021 has been pretty good on the bookish front so far and the next couple of months have some promising titles in store. Let’s take a look!
