  1. What a great reading year! that embroidery is just gorgeous! I look forward to seeing what plays you read – my Masters is in Modern Drama so I read a lot of plays but often find it hard to talk about them!

    • Thank you! 😊 I know what you mean, I’ve loved reading some plays in the past, but without the usual depth and description in the text itself, they can be harder to discuss objectively.

  2. Great post! I always like reading about other people’s statistics. I am tinkering with my end of the year posts. This really is my second favourite part of the blogging year (favourite being the time around the wp longlist announcement).
    I didn’t plan on having any resolutions but since today I’ve been tempted.

  3. Lovely post! I’m so happy you found embroidery to make you a bit happier in this messy year! (And it looks so beautiful!!) Good luck with your goals, I look forward to seeing what you read this year – will you try to read the WP longlist? I’m probably just gonna pick up whatever catches my eye, considering how disappointing last year’s list was.

    • Thank you so much! 😊 Same here, I’m still curious to see what gets listed, and I’m excited to discuss any that we check out, but I don’t see myself committing to the whole longlist again this year.

  4. It looks like an amazing reading year! Very impressive and your embroidery is just gorgeous. I particularly like the one with the Christmas wreath.

  5. Your embroidery? ICONIC. Women’s Prize reading definitely felt like a big buddy read. Although I think this year everyone will just read whatever they like from the list since we had a bad time with last year’s list. Good luck with your goals! 🙆🏻‍♀️

  6. I like the graphics to see how exactly how your reading plays out. Like you, I don’t consciously choose books by men or women but I keep track and women always seem to dominate in the end, which I certainly don’t mind!

  7. Yesss pie charts! Your commitment to translations is truly inspiring, and congrats on meeting so many of your goals, even in such a strange year. Learning to take my own advice on being okay with reading slumps when they inevitably descend was something I had to work hard on this year too, and I can agree it’s a difficult mentality to come around to no matter how easy it is to give the same advice to others, but it is very freeing in the end to remember that our time is our own to choose what to do with. I’m glad you were able to find other ways to relax these past couple of months, and your embroidery is so gorgeous!

  8. Those pie charts feed the statistics nerd in me on a whole new level. Love, love it. Great job on your reading goals too. I totally failed at mine… 😀

    • Glad to hear I’m not the only one geeking out over them 😂 Thanks! I wouldn’t worry; I think we all get a free pass if things didn’t exactly pan out as we’d planned last year 😅
