    1. I did quite a few re-reads of the books I keep on my shelf (they have to earn their place!) and they turn out to be classics mostly. I’m glad they are some of your faves too πŸ™‚

  1. The only ones I’ve read are the classics and The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, all of which I enjoyed. Glad you had so many good reads this year – hope 2022 brings even more!

    1. Thank you – hope you have a great reading year ahead too! I’m re-reading the Adrian Mole books, as I do every few years πŸ™‚

  2. I have to admit I just read (actually listened to the audio book of) Pride and Prejudice for the very first time, this year. I enjoyed it, but I just don’t think I’m a novel of manners sort of reader.

    1. I found the writing style difficult the first time I read it. I’ve re-read a few times since and I like it more every time! Are you considering reading any more Austens or was the one quite enough? πŸ˜‰

  3. I’m in the majority (have read the classics and Adrian Mole). Happy reading in 2022 πŸ˜€

    1. I re-read Adrian Mole every few years and will continue the series this year. Thank you, happy reading this year to you πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve not read any πŸ™ But looks like you read some really good books and able to pick 20! Here’s to more great books in 2022. Happy New Year, my friend!

    1. Thanks Jee – happy new year! πŸ™‚ I didn’t decide to pick a certain number of favourite reads, I just made a list and it was 19 so thought I might as well round them up!
