At the time I’m writing this, I just hit 65 books for the year. Reading was slower this quarter than I would have expected at the start of 2021, but life took us on an exciting adventure traveling the US for the months of August, September, and half of October
I definitely over estimated how much time I would spend reading on our road trip. Nonetheless, I knocked another 6 titles off this TBR which brings my completion to 53%, up from 33% at the end of Q2
I don’t expect to actually read all 30 books by the end of 2021, but I think I’ll finish out the year somewhere around 75% complete. Who knows, I may roll over some titles into 2022. I’ve already started brain storming selections for next year!
My predictions for what I’ll have finished by end of Q4 include:
1 | A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins (OCT)
2 | The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton (NOV)
3 | Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware (NOV)
4 | The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid (DEC)
5 | Vicious by VE Schwab (DEC)
FYI, I’m definitely not going to finish The Devil and the Dark Water considering I’ve DNF’d it twice. I set it aside in September because I just couldn’t get into it, then tried revisiting it in October when I got the audiobook from the library and it dragged even more. I give up. It’s not happening this year. Though I still fully expect to enjoy The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by the same author, given the absolute mega hype it has.
Until tomorrow, Meryn
