Another year is coming to a close and I am grateful to be keeping this tradition alive of sharing everything I read throughout the year. This is my fourth year sharing my book round-ups and it’s such a fun post to look back on. If you want to see what I read in 2020, 2019, and 2018 you can check out those posts. 

Everything I Read in 2021

Normally when I post these book roundups, I get a lot of questions about how I have time for so much reading and how to make reading a habit so I thought we could talk about it for a minute before diving into everything I read. In 2018 I made a resolution to read something every day, even if it was just a sentence I promised myself I would open a book every single day. I think making such a small attainable goal is why this habit really stuck. I was reading way more than a sentence a day and really fell back in love with reading. Since then I have kept up the reading and in 2021 I began hosting a book club by starting the Literary League Salt Lake City Chapter. You can click here to join the Salt Lake City Chapter or click here to find one near you. My last tip for people trying to read more is to embrace audiobooks and if you don’t love the book you are reading, give yourself permission to put it down.

Everything I Read in 2021

This year I read a total of 50 books which is a little more than last year. I don’t normally set reading goals for myself, because I find them to be stressful, but I always try to read a little bit more than the year before.

I'm Bailey, your new social media bestie.

Instead of doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing, I got intentional. I started asking “what if” all the time and I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to do things at the perfect time or the right way. Instead I took a little leap here and another there to create a life I love.
