Every year I go into the new year with the best intentions. You know the list: have a more positive attitude, eat better, exercise, actually read the books on your shelves…
Well, I never actually read all of the books I intend to in the year (although I didn’t do too badly with the other items on my list). I do not think I will ever finish my entire Owned TBR, however, there are several books on it I had every intention of reading as soon as I bought them and then just…didn’t. So, I’m putting it out into the world. These are the book leftover from my 2021 TBR that I am determined to read in 2022.

2021 was a fantastic year for books! There were so many amazing releases. I understand that at lot of that was because of 2020 releases getting pushed back due to the pandemic but I can’t complain about the embarrassment of riches we got literature wise last year.

Looking back, it seems that every year I have the same issue. All summer, June – August, I barely read. On the rare occasion I do pick up a book more often than not I DNF it. I don’t know what it is about summer but it makes me miserable and when I am unhappy I don’t want to read or do much of anything, quite frankly.
April, I think, is a month that brought many of us new challenges. With social distancing, face masks, and work changes all happening very quickly it was difficult to keep up with all of the new policies and rules and to get used to a new way of living day to day life. Personally, I’ve learned to enjoy curbside pickup although the feeling of panic when someone gets too close to you in public is something I doubt I’ll get used to.
