Lots and lots of books

Happy new year, y’all!

Way back when it was still 2020, I actually managed to keep track of (almost) all the books I read, and like always I’ve made lists and awards! I have my Top 6 Books list, my Honorable Mentions list, and my Old Favorites list. None of these are in any particular order.

So, I read 128 books this year, 40% of which were books I’d never read. Yes, I have too much time on my hands. What can I do? Here’s the complete list.

And now for the awards!

First, Old Favorites:

  1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
  2. Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortuante Events
  3. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  4. Rick Riordan
