πŸ“š Six in Six | My 2021 Edition

Six in Six BannerHey everyone, I am super excited to share with you today my 2021 edition of Six in Six, a brilliant yearly meme created by Jo of The Book Jotter, which I have found to be a great way to reflect back on our reading at the midway point of the year, since Jo began this meme back in 2012!

  1. I’ve read a couple of the Agatha Raisin books and have another lined up as an audio to begin tomorrow in the gym.I find they work well as an audio version, the humour might irritate me if I was reading the book but in audio I find it hilarious

    1. Thank you, JoAnn – I am so pleased you enjoyed my categories for this year so much! Also The Thursday Murder Club was so much fun, so I really hope you will enjoy it as much as I did! 😊

  2. Great categories! I’ve read seven of these books too, not this year but in previous years. And I’ve got Neil Oliver’s book and The Lost World on my TBR shelves. I’ll get round to them one day …

    1. Thank you, Margaret – I am so pleased you enjoyed my categories and seven of the books I’ve listed. I also hope you will enjoy The Story of the British Isles and The Lost World as much as I did, when you have chance to read them! 😊

  3. You have three of my go-to authors on your list! (Mary Stewart, Terry Pratchett, and Daphne Du Maurier). I’d add Diana Wynne Jones, Georgette Heyer, Ursula K. Le Guin, P.G. Wodehouse — ok I’d better stop now.

  4. Thanks good joining in. Can’t believe it is ten years in 2022, will have to get thinking cap on for then. No pressure!

    1. Thank you, FF! And as much as I did love Conan Doyle’s The Lost World it was not Sherlock Holmes… now any of them would have made my Most Enjoyed category all day long! 😁

  5. Posts like this are always such fun to read! We have quite a few authors in common that we enjoy. I’m currently reading a Discworld novel. πŸ˜ƒ

    1. Glad you enjoy reading these sorts of posts, Kelly and I hope you are enjoying your current Discworld read – I not long started one, too: Men At Arms by Terry Pratchett. 😁

  6. Great choice of categories, Jessica! Mary Stewart and Daphne du Maurier are two of my go-to authors too. I also have lots of favourite authors I’ve neglected so far this year and would like to read again soon. My Six in Six post should be up later this week!

    1. Thank you, Helen, so pleased you enjoyed my categories this year. 😊 I look forward to seeing your category and books choices, as there is usually a great variety because of how much you read! 😁

  7. Great post! I haven’t read a lot of books form your list but some of them are on my tbr. And now I def want to do a six in six post as well, ahaha

    1. Thank you, Nastassja, so pleased you enjoyed my post. I hope you will also enjoy those books from my lists that you have on your TBR and that you also have chance to do your own Six in Six post. I would love to see it. 😊
