Books I read in 2022

This year, I set another goal of books to read in my Goodreads account. Because I’d struggled the previous year to read anything for fun, only finishing 3 books in 2021. For 2022, I decided to go low this year, and set my goal at 10 books. Happily, as I finished a book last night, I have made it to 12 books read for 2022! I already have my book picked out to read in January 2023, so I am going to take a chance and go back to challenging myself to read one book a month in 2023.

Looking back on the list, it’s an eclectic mixture of science fantasy (Star Wars), young adult romance, mystery and autobiography. I enjoyed just about all of them, and am happy that I was finally able to make time to read again.

Of the books I read this year, I have to say that my favorite was the “Ink Black Heart” by Robert Galbraith. Galbraith is the pen name of J.L. Rowling as she branched out to write a series of murder mysteries. I happen to be a huge fan of the way J.K. Rowling writes characters and immediately fell in love with these Coroman Strike murder mysteries. I have found that I preorder her books when I know one is coming and read it as soon as it arrives. This one was 1400 pages long yet I managed to finish it off in less than a week.

I ranked three books at only 3 stars this year. Of those, my least favorite was probably ‘Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing’, an autobiography by Matthew Perry. It’s not that I didn’t appreciate Mr. Perry sharing his personal story, but it was hard to read with it’s nonlinear storytelling. I did appreciate his bravery in sharing that he found God through his struggles with alcohol and drugs throughout his adulthood.

Rather than continue going through each book, I am going to try write a post for each one. This might give me an impetus to write again in this blog to get back in the habit of writing here again.

I hope that as you close out 2022, you can reflect back on accomplishments both large and small and look forward to what the universe has in store for you in 2023.
