2021 in Review

The end of this year has seemed to flown by, and I can’t believe it’s already time for my wrap up post for 2021. I’m ending the year with 121 books read (most of which were audiobooks). For the first time, I’ll be breaking down my reading year into stats, so look out for that post in January! And in case you missed any of them, don’t forget to check out all of the author interviews and guest posts that I’ve hosted this year.

Bookish Highlights

  • I kicked off 2021 with a new bookstagram theme!
  • My name was mentioned in the acknowledgments of three books: Speak for Yourself, We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This, and How We Fall Apart. Thank you so much to Lana Wood Johnson, Rachel Lynn Solomon, and Katie Zhao for this honor!
  • I became an author assistant! I’m currently assisting an author whose debut will be releasing in 2022, and I also completed a project for a 2023 debut author.
  • I brought back the Bookish Valentine Exchange.
  • I joined BookTok (and brought some of the videos over to Instagram as Reels).
  • I hosted the February twitter chat for the Class of 2k21 Books!
  • I attended Laura Taylor Namey’s book signing for When We Were Them, my first author event since early 2020.
  • The talented Jacqueline Firkins (@jfkillsdarlings) created a dress inspired by The Inheritance Games for me!
  • Hung out with bookstagram friends in real life (and we did all the bookish things like explore used bookstores, hunt down Nancy Drew books for my collection, visit the Reese’s Book Club pop-up shop, and see The Hating Game movie).

Now, it’s time to share my favorite reads of 2021!
