6️⃣ Six in Six – 2022 Edition is Coming! πŸŽ‰

Six in Six BannerHello my fellow bookworms, I come to you today, a little late, with the exciting news that Jo of The Book Jotter has announced the upcoming Six in Six – 2022 Edition of her wonderful, yearly meme, which I find a great way to reflect back on our reading as we reach the midway point of the year. Yes, we are halfway through 2021 already! πŸ˜…

Jo originally started this meme on a bit of a whim in 2012 and it has been going ever since, and I have taken part every single year from the beginning! To join in all you have to do is share your post, anytime in July, of your six books in six different categories from the last six months. Here are some categories you could choose from:

  • Six new authors to me
  • Six authors I have read before
  • Six authors I am looking forward to reading more of
  • Six books I have enjoyed the most
  • Six books I was disappointed with
  • Six series of books read or started
  • Six authors I read last year – but not so far this year
  • Six books that took me on extraordinary journeys

  1. I’ve never heard of this meme. It sounds like fun, though. I’m going to look into it more and see if it’s something I want to participate in this year. Thanks for sharing! πŸ˜€

  2. I particpated for the first time last year and will do so again this year. I loved it! πŸ˜€

  3. I will be taking part in this again as well, but still trying to decide on my categories. I’ll look forward to seeing what you choose!

    1. Great to hear you will also be taking part again, Helen. I am going to have to be really creative with my categories this year, as I have only finished 11 books, so far! πŸ˜…
