2021 Reading Wrap Up: Fourth Quarter

The last quarter of 2021 was a rough one, so I didn’t get as much done as I’d like. It’s not even done yet, but I already know that I won’t complete another book before the end of the year. There’s just too much going on, so my reading speed has been much slower than usual. Below are the few things I managed to complete this quarter.

  1. I hope you’ll be quickly settled into your new place soon and that you quickly find your rhythm to get back to doing all the things you love! I hope you also had a wonderful Christmas, holidays and a Happy New Year, Zezee! Wishing you all the health, wealth, and happiness for this new year. 😀

  2. I love how detailed your statistics are! I have so many ideas for how to organize my own end-of-year statistics now, so thank you very much 😀 I’ll need to comb through your blog, since I’m really curious about your thoughts on those DNFs. (I’m trying to read more horror and I keep seeing My Heart Is A Chainsaw around booktube and such, but I just can’t motivate myself to pick it up from the library).

    1. Thanks!
      I can’t remember if I mentioned my DNFs elsewhere since I haven’t done a monthly wrapup in a while. But those DNFs were because I stressed out and wasn’t dedicating enough time to reading. I intend to get back to them. However, the Chainsaw book didn’t draw me in, so I have been procrastinating on going back to it.

  3. Ah that’s not too bad, you got to about halfway in most! Early december was quite hectic for me too 🤭 I just ended up working so much more..

    Wishing you a happy 2022 and hopefully it’d be calmer to you xx

  4. Hopefully things will slow down for you a bit next year, give you more time to enjoy your reading. What kept you from finishing Sorcery & Cecelia? Did it not work for you? I’ve seen the title before and have been curious about it but have never read anything by the authors.
