I’ve read the most books this year than I have ever in my life, and I am super proud of that accomplishment. A few years ago, I couldn’t even read 12 books in a year, and now I’m weighing in at 73 for 2021!! It still feels a little surreal. This year I physically read eight books and the rest were on audio. I attempted to rank all 73 in order of worst to best, but I don’t know if anyone could do that perfectly 😉 So- find my approximate ordering below!  If you need suggestions or inspiration- here it is! And if you have any books I need to add to my “to read” list, I’m all ears! Here’s to more wonderful books in 2022!
