Well, April was a bit of a bust when it came to reading. I hit a major reading slump this month and was also super busy and stressed due to work and planning my sister’s bridal shower, which led to very few books being read.
In April, I read only read 3 books. I’m currently super behind on my reading goals for the year, but trying not to focus on that as there is still plenty of time to catch up!
I’m a few days late on this, but hey, better late than never, right? I’ve been spending the last few days down in North Carolina with my family as I was in town for a wedding and to go wedding dress shopping with my sister.
I haven’t had much of a chance to read recently, but luckily I had a fairly good reading month early in March, despite this month being hectic at work. All in all, I ended up reading 8 books this month.
I’ve been procrastinating on writing this post for days now as I truly hate picking favorites, especially when it comes to the books I read.
2021 was a great reading year and I truly read so many books that I adored. However, I do think one book stands out in my mind as being my top favorite this year. I accidentally added it twice to my list while I was pulling this together so I take that as a sign that it deserves special recognition.
With the exception of the first book on this list, the rest of the list is in no particular order.
Most, if not all, of these books were 5-star reads, but not all of my 5 star reads made it onto my favorites. I was pulling this list together I was thinking of the books that stuck with me the most and that I tend to recommend frequently as must-reads. If you follow me on Instagram, I don’t think any of these will come as a major shock.
Okay, enough babbling! Here’s my top 10 reads of 2021:
Fall is officially here! I don’t know about you, but September flew by for me. I had a crazy month in my personal life as I got to lead the PR and go to New York to take my work public! It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience, but man, it seriously cut into my reading time as I was super busy.
September 2021 Reads
I also completely threw out my September TBR pretty quickly this month and just went with the books I feeling like reading. I ended up only reading 3 out of the 6 books on my TBR.
This month, I only ended up reading 8 books, which I know is a lot for some people but felt like not a ton for me.
Let’s get into what I read this month (hint it was Fever-centric):
CW: physical, verbal and emotional abuse; child pornography; exploitation of a minor
After being blown away by Scoundrel of My Heart this spring, The Duchess Hunt became one of my most anticipated reads of the fall. I had incredibly high hopes for this book and somehow it managed to exceed my wildest expectations. This book!! I am fully in love with everything about it – from the characters to the romance to the plot – it’s perfect. It left me speechless and an emotional mess in the best way at the end.
I’m still in denial that today is September 1. Let’s just pretend it is August 32nd.
September is going to be crazy for me because of work and I’m currently not really sure WHAT I want to read this month. I’m feeling like September is going to be quite a mood reading month, but do have a few things on my September TBR!
