2022 - Books Read

Hello!  Welcome to the list of all the books I've read so far this year.  It's in order so the most recent one is at the top.  * means ebook and # means it's both new to me and underappreciated (as in it has less than 50 Goodreads reviews).  Feel free to follow along.

New for this year: When I know it's in audio format, I'll add an exclamation point (!).  Oh, and I never mentioned this before, but if the book is in a series, I don't usually put the series title.  This post would take on behemoth proportions if I did that, too.  Sometimes, I'll put a number indicating where the book is in the series, if it's not the first.  

Oh, and my goal for 2022 is 75 books, same as last year.  Here's hoping I make it this year.

  1. I lowered my expectations this year from 200, which I hit but with some struggle, to 175. I can always up it.

    I FINALLY found a book to start the year with. I spent literally hours combing through lists--another reason for lowering my total. Plus, I hope to be writing more this year. I'm also trying not to fall back on books I've previously read numerous times, but there's a reason they are on my keeper shelf. Sadly, I have read this first book of the year but it was years ago and the first time I attempted it in audio back in '17, I quit before the end of the first chapter. Weird headspace then, like now. So far, though, I'm sticking with it. And there are some new releases this year--like 5 or 6 (maybe I should REALLY lower my total 🤣 ), but they are from known and trusted authors, and I'll probably relisten to earlier books in the series.

    Anyway. Don't want to be Debbie Downer. I am looking for new-to-me authors and books this year, taking a page from your reading list, but being limited to audio, at $15 a pop, I'm not hep on taking chances and finding books available from the library or on Audible Plus is a challenge.

    Here's to a good reading year for all of us!
