In 2021, I read 12 books that have won an award. Here is a recap. An asterisk is for non-fiction.
- From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
- When No One is Watching
- God’s of the Upper Air*
- Felix Ever After
- Arsenic and Adobo
- I’m Watching You
- Selected Poems of Gwendolyn Brooks
- Faithful and Virtuous Night (poetry)
- Me Talk Pretty One Day*
If you want to make your own reading challenge go for it. It can be as specific as you want or just a goal of how many books you want to complete. You can google ideas and pre-made lists or create your own. I suggest coming up with some ideas before you start. I like coming up with some ideas first because I use the library, and I want to make sure I can find a specific title beforehand. If that is too stressful or you don’t have time or heck, if you don’t want to, then please just ignore all of that. I’m not here to tell you what to do. I just want you to be happy with your decision and what you choose to read. Happy Reading!

Now let’s get to the best part. It’s finally time to introduce my new reading challenge for 2022! There isn’t a unifying theme this time. I will come up with a way to introduce each book like I did for the awards.
- A Graphic novel
- Science fiction
- A classic
- A random book from the library
- A book I’ve already read
- A book written by a Native American author
- A mystery
- Related to heists/thefts
- A book on my bookshelf that I haven’t read yet
- A book related to museums
- A book a friend loves
- A children’s or young adult book
I’m also thinking of trying out a book club and then reviewing it. I’m thinking of trying Literati.
