Ready…Set…Reflect…Plan…

As we are approaching the end of 2021, it’s the time for planning our 2022 reading goals. Well, unless you are a total mood reader?

For me, I need some sort of plan for my indecisive ways. 

I was able to get my hands on an Always Fully Booked 2022 Planner by Little Inklings Designs (Check out their Instagram here). Did you? 

This was my second year purchasing from the company, and I just love her planners and the journaling that she does. My 2021 planner wasn’t utilized to the best of it’s abilities (due to the user-ME) LOL; however, I “Plan” (like what I did there) to get my act together for 2022. 

I feel like, for me, 2021 was the year of planning from bookclubs, to buddy reads, and series… lot’s of series.

Some of the series I have completed this year are:

  • A Court of Thorns and Roses (5 books) by Sarah J Maas – Loved this entire series overall rating 4.6
  • Throne of Glass (8 books) by Sarah J Maas – Loved the series overall rating 4.25 stars
  • King of Scars (duology) by Leigh Bardugo – Loved book 2 the best, overall rating 4.5
  • Breathless (4 books) by Ava Cates – Liked a lot overall rating 3.75
  • The Poppy Wars (3 books) By R. J. Kuang – Loved the series overall rating 4.67
  • The Kiss Quotient (3 books) by Helen Hoang – Loved the series overall rating 4.67
  • An Ember in the Ashes (4 books) by Sabaa Tabir – Liked this series a lot overall rating 4

Looking at the star rating scores, my top series, coming in at a tie are The Poppy Wars and The Kiss Quotient. Out of the 2, my top series read for the year is…

There are also a few series that I have started in 2021, and I am (IM)patiently awaiting for the next book to continue with the series in 2022 such as:

  • Wings of Ebony byJ. Elle – Ashes of Gold – Release date January 2022
  • The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna– The Merciless Ones – Release date April 2022
  • The Prison Healer by Lynette Noni – The Gilded Cage (out now and waiting for my Fairyloot copy), and The Blood Traitor – Release date June 2022
  • Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard – Blade Breaker – Release date June 2022
  • Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim – The Dragon’s Promise – Release date August 2022
  • Legendborn by Tracy Deonn – Bloodmarked – Release date in November 2022

There are others I am sure I will check out in 2022 for instance one of my FAVORITE… the From Blood and Ash (FBAA) Series by Jennifer L Armentrout. 

Book 4 – The War of Two Queens will be released in March of 2022!!! I recently started a re-read of FBAA and Kingdom of Flesh and Fire to continue with the next book The Crown of Gilded Bones. This means I will be ready just in time for book 4’s release in March!

Other series that are already out that are on my TBR list in 2022 includes:

  • The Daevabad Trilogy: The City of Brass, Kingdom of Copper, and The Empire of Gold by S. A Chakraborty
  • The Green Bone Sage: Jade City, Jade War, and Jade Legacy by Fonda Lee
  • The Gilded Wolves: The Gilded Wolves, The Silvered Serpent, and The Bronzed Beasts by Roshani Chokshi

Just to name a few…

As you can see, I have quite a few series that I already have planned for 2022! Of course, these will be buddy reads because, well, that’s what I do! My Always Fully Booked Planner will definitely come in handy to keep me on track with my series and buddy reads. 

Happy Holidays and Let’s get Planning in 2022!
