Read 100 books: 19/100

Finish 5 series in progress: 0/5 – I did not finish any series that I started before 2021. However, by reading Tarnished Empire I am currently caught up with the published books in the Dark Shores series.

Read 12 graphic novels: 1/12 – House of El

Read 12 books of poetry/verse: 1/12 – the princess saves herself in this one

Read 6 nonfiction books: 1/6 – Hollywood Park

Read 3 classics: 0/3

Reread 10 books: 2/10 – Ready Player One and From Blood and Ash

Host monthly backlist buddy reads: 1/12 – The Shadows Between Us! This book was so fun to read and discuss with friends! My February pick is Kingdom of the Wicked. Comment on this Instagram post if you would like to join!

I feel great about the start of 2021, and I am so excited to read many more amazing books this year!
