As you may have noticed, there hasn’t been all that much activity on this blog since my burst of energy last October. And that’s because I had many life changes that upended, well everything! My husband and I moved, I started a new job as a high school librarian (long time readers will know I was a middle school librarian for most of my career) and there have also been some medical issues in my family. Plus, you know, COVID! So my beloved blog fell down on my list of priorities, and while I read just as many books as ever, I didn’t always find the time to write about them all. I will go ahead and post my top five titles for 2021, but they may not have appeared on this page, or they may have been reviewed elsewhere. I appreciate the patience of everyone who still reads and enjoys Reading Rants, and I hope to be more productive for you in 2022! Peace and love to all as we head into this hopeful new year.

Take care of yourself! Your reviews are always appreciated (seriously, they are one of our sources for collection development). One question, have you considered bringing in other people to write for Reading Rants, similar to https://www.noflyingnotights.com/ ? Anyway, looking forward to your reviews and I hope everything is going well for you.
We’ll read when you post – no worries. We all are finding new habits and new motivations for another year.
Thank you for your understanding!
Thank you, and yes, that is definitely something to consider. I appreciate your patience 😉
I am still an ardent fan and congratulate you on your new job. I was a high school librarian for 11 years before I retired to watch my grandchildren. I am a voracious reader and always like to read your reviews, Good luck in 2022!
I have been a fan of Reading Rants since I was in high school (about 15 years ago) and I still check it frequently. I am an elementary librarian now and I can appreciate how much time and concentration it takes to write a quality review like what you provide here. Thanks for all you do and hope that you have an excellent 2022.
