It's week 48 in our 52 books quest. As the year winds down, the best books of the year lists rise up with many books in common. Some I may have missed and others I may have deliberately missed on purpose. Some may not have been stories that enticed me into reading more... Yet. Some weren't my style, which can change from year to year. Different phases, different places, different mind set, or just not in the mood. But when I am in the mood, watch out. My TBR stack gets taller, while some books grow older and wait patiently, knowing that in time, I'll get to them.
If you are like me, your book shelves may be filled to the brim with books double and triple parked. Every so often, I'll rearrange them, pulling stories and authors forward to sit front and center, pushing others to the back until it's their time to shine again. I really don't need to buy more books, but you know, you can never have enough. While the sleepy, dusty tome, bides its time, the shiny penny calls your name.
While perusing the best of the best for 2021 the past few days, and adding a few to my virtual and physical stack as well as my wish list, I thought, wait.... What about 2022? All those shiny new pennies! Time to preorder a few before my book buying ban clicks in at the beginning of the year. Now I know why my stacks keep having babies and those babies have babies. LOL! I'm ever so grateful to the authors and their creativity who keep me entertained.
