Reading Recap - 2021 Resolution Check Up

 1.  Read 156 Books - I read 221 (though I may finish another one before the year officially ends tonight). 

2.  Catch up or finish 10 series - I caught up or finished 18 this year!

3.  Read 20 books off my shelf - 24 books off my shelf

4.  Read 5 Nonfiction Books - I more then doubled my goal with 12 books read!  

5.  Track the location of the fiction books I read - Done! I visited 34 states and 15 different countries through my books this year.

6.  End the year with less then 5 overdue review books that were published in 2021 -  I have 0 overdue books from 2021!  Every review book I got this year I reviewed and I worked through my 2020 review books.  Now to tackle the rest of the backlog!

7.  Finish the Miss Marple books - Done!  I finished the last Miss Marple book on December 30th.

8.  Finish the Miss Silver books - There were WAY more Miss Silver books then I thought.  I was thinking there were maybe 15 or so and it turns out there were actually 32.  I finished 19 and will finish the rest in 2022.  

9.  Read the books on my Classic Mystery list - Done!  I finished all 10 books on this list.

10.  Read 5 Books from the Backlog Books - Done!  Though I stopped tracking after 5 so I'm not sure how many I ended up getting read but it was way more then 5.

So 9 out of 10 accomplished but honestly I'm pretty much calling it complete since I'm pretty happy with how many Miss Silver books I ended up reading even though I didn't read them all.


  1. Fabulous reading year Katherine. I'm so impressed - especially that you tackled ALL of your review books from 2020 and 2021 - so jealous. I'm to quick to hit that request button - I'll never catch up. Hope 2022 is a good reading year as well.

  2. You did very well with your goals!

  3. You did amazing! I may choose some goals based on your choices this past year. I'm thinking about my 2022 goals this weekend.

  6. Sounds like an extremely successful reading year. Well done!

  7. Just superb. You really aced your reading intentions for this year. May 2022 be just as good.

  8. You did fantastic with your goals. I am impressed! I have been doing better at reading the books that I feature in my Books from the Backlog posts and hope to continue in 2022!

  9. You had a great year of reading!

  10. Impressive! I am terrible at goals, I get so sidetracked.

  11. WOW! You win reading for 2021! 🏆

    I was waiting for your series total. I knew you were going to almost double it! 🏅

    I think I might use some of these ideas in 2023 when I can free-range again. 👏👏👏✨
