Reading Wrap Up 2022 In Review

It was a lot of fun to go back over my reading year, but one thing really struck me, most of the favorite books I read in the beginning of the year. And although I have read the most I have ever in my life in one year (101 books!), that did not equate to quality. Lesson learned, but also that makes a lot of sense. In a crowded year, it had to really stand out to make the cut. Plus my brain short circuited around May until like, well it’s still going I think, so I think that could be a part of it too. Which makes sense, because we moved in May. In 2023 all I want is to read what I own and DNF with abandon. I live near an amazing library that is well stocked, there is no reason for me to keep buying books. I’m honestly grossed out by how much I own and need to remedy that, especially with what’s coming on the horizon….Onwards to 2023. Happy New Year Book Community, you’re still the best place on the internet.
