I completed my 2021 Goodreads goal of 45 books so I am happy with that 🙌 I read 34 physical books and 11 ebooks and I enjoyed all of them! My first read of 2021 was a reread of The Green Mile and my last read for the year was The Troop by Nick Cutter. My 2022 goals are to aim for 45 books again, go on a book buying ban for a few months and continue to read all the unread books on my shelves.

The Dollhouse Murders | Betty Ren Wright

"I don't believe in ghosts."
- The Dollhouse Murders

The Dollhouse Murders was a book I borrowed from my school library when I was little and the story stuck with me for years. I was stoked when I came across a copy a few years ago at a mini book sale ? I liked the other books too and it would be nice to have a reread one day!

My slightly ambitious July TBR 📚😏 I don't usually choose a lot of books for a monthly to-be-read, I mostly pick one or two books and then wing it with the rest because I'm quite a mood reader. However, Friday is the last day of school/work for the term so I am hoping to get lots of reading done in the school holidays 😄

The Hellion | Harriet Young

I loved The Hellion. I was hooked from the beginning and found the story so interesting. This book focuses on the Device family who live at Malkin Tower and the events that lead up to the Pendle witch trials in 1612. The characters were well written and fascinating to learn about. I loved the pace of the story and it was a real page turner.

The Puppet Show | M. W. Craven

The Puppet Show was bloody brilliant. I was hooked from the beginning, it kept me on the edge of my seat and I could hardly put it down. It was a fast-paced book, I loved the characters and can't wait to read more of Tilly and Poe which I will soon enough because I immediately bought the next two Tilly and Poe books after reading this one. Highly recommend The Puppet Show to anyone who likes crime thrillers with epic twists and turns!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Last Thing to Burn was an intense and shocking book that kept me on the edge of my seat. It was truly #unputdownable and I was seriously hooked from the beginning. There were some difficult parts in the story to read but overall this book was intriguing, suspenseful and well written. This was the first book I read by this author but it definitely won't be the last! Highly recommend if you are up for a quick and dark read!

I set myself a goal to read 45 books and I ended up reading 47 🙌 I wish I read more and maybe hit 50+ but this year was just blergh! I really struggled to focus on reading but I'm happy with the books I read. This year I read 36 physical books and 11 ebooks and I thoroughly enjoyed all of them! I hope you all had a fantastic reading year!

That can take you eighty years and you do something in that time, whether it's giving birth to a baby or being a housewife or a barrister or a soldier. You've accomplished something.'

This is one of my favourite books ❤ Do I need more copies? Absolutely 😝

Have you bookworms read any of these books? I just started Small Spaces yesterday and I'm enjoying it!

Mistermandolin I preferred this to The Dry, if anything. A more mature work. She‘s a very talented writer with a great, great future. Some critics say her characters are flat and two-dimensional but I don‘t think so. That‘s certainly not the case here. I‘m about to start The Lost Man and I have high hopes. 2y
