Tier Ranking the Books I Read in 2021

Happy New Years Eve, bookworms! I cannot believe 2022 is just hours away. It feels like only yesterday when I was setting my Goodreads goal for 2021, and now I’m about to set a new one again!

For my final post of 2021, I will be tier ranking all the books I read this past year. This is my favorite way to rank things, book-related or not, and I honestly had so much fun doing it! Even though I only read 35 books this year (probably the least I’ve read since I’ve started tracking my reading), I’m pretty proud of this year’s reading regardless.

2021 was a wild year for me: I started and completed a 26 page thesis paper, was applying to jobs post-graduation, and graduated from college! Even if my year didn’t consist of the most finished books, I’m still excited with where I’m at, and am intrigued to see what new books 2022 brings into my life, and my bookshelf. πŸ˜‰

With all that said, let’s get started with the ranking!

Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Gallant by V.E. Schwab

Happy Wednesday! Today I’ll be sitting by the fireplace, attempting to finish my last book of 2022. I’m currently reading The Holiday Swap by Maggie Knox and am enjoying it so far! I definitely think this will be my last holiday read of the year though since I am getting pretty burnt out with festive vibes hahaha. πŸ˜‚

Today I will be participating in Can’t-Wait Wednesday, a weekly meme to share an upcoming anticipated release that you’re excited about. The blog meme was based on Breaking the Spineβ€˜s Waiting on Wednesday, and is hosted by Wishful Endings!

This week I will be featuring…

Baby It’s Cold Outside Book Tag β˜ƒοΈβ„️

Merry Christmas, bookworms! Christmas is typically a very laid back day in my family where we literally do nothing but open presents, eat, and sit on the couch watching Holiday-themed romcoms together.

I thought it’d be fun to add to the festive cheer with a book tag created by Erin @ Reading on a Star. It’s called the Baby It’s Cold Outside Book Tag, and even though I haven’t been tagged by anyone specifically, I’ve seen this everywhere lately and thought it looked fun!

So grab yourself a cup of hot chocolate or your favorite tea and let’s get started with these cozy questions! ❄️

Top 5 Tuesday: Books with Plants on the Cover πŸƒπŸ“–πŸ‘’

Happy Tuesday friends! This weekend has been extremely hectic as I moved into a new apartment and started my final semester of college. Not going to lie, I am very overwhelmed, but also excited about what the future holds. It’s also been nice to have my own space again that I can really call mine. 😊

Today’s post is a fun one, because I’m participating in a new blog meme for the first time! Top Five Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted by Meeghan at Meeghan Reads. The themes have been absolutely adorable so I’m very excited to finally join in on the fun!

Books I’m Bringing With Me to College! πŸ“šπŸ“¦

It’s that time of the year again where I have to pack up all my belongings in the span of two days and move back to college! I may dread having to fold all of my clothes and shove them into gigantic IKEA duffle bags but, for me, the most difficult part is having to pick which lucky few books I will be taking with me to my dorm.

I know, I know. I sound a bit dramatic, but it’s a tricky thing to choose the books I’m bringing with me, mainly because I am the world’s biggest mood reader. This means that I typically can never stick to any sort of planned TBR and that I almost always rely on having a huge variety just in case.

However, I think that I have chosen a good set of books that will keep me entertained until I come back home in December. Have I packed way too many books that I will most likely not have the time for… quite possibly. Are a majority of the books romances because I am always in the mood for a cute read… absolutely!

Hello and happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having a nice start to your week. Mine has been a bit uneventful, however, I move back to college this Friday! So maybe a calm beginning of the week will balance out nicely with the hectic weekend that’s sure to come haha. 😊

Today’s post will be dedicated to a fun meme here in the bookish blogworld,Β Top Ten Tuesday! Every week there is a new, exciting topic to create a bookish list for ranging anywhere from genres to characters, to quotes and more!

This week’s topic is “Secondary Characters Who Deserve More Love” and, let’s be real, there are SO many characters who fall into this category.
