2021 Wrap Up – A Year in Books + What’s Coming in 2022

Another year gone – and 2021 certainly felt like it would never end at times! But it’s finally over and here’s hoping 2022 will be a better year filled with even more wonderful books. 2021 has been a marvellous blogging year however, and I’ve read so many amazing books and hit some major blogging milestones as well! I wrote my 600th post in September, hit 700 followers here on WordPress in November and Worlds Unlike Our Own officially turned 3 years old in October. Let’s take a look at 2021 on my blog and what’s new this year!

Monthly Wrap Up | December 2021

Happy New Year 2022!
December was yet another busy month and I took on the Blogmas challenge for the second time, posting for 25 days. I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked, but I did manage to check off a few more major titles in the last weeks of 2021. My hiatus over the past week was much needed and it was great to have some time to relax over the holiday season. I’m really looking forward to 2022 and all the amazing titles slated for release in the upcoming months!

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!
