Here is my 2022 Reading Wrap-Up!
2022 was an exciting year for me.
- In June, I finally started reading again after a TWO YEAR hiatus.
- I read a whopping 56 books!
- I got my excitement back for reading and started my blog, and started to get social again with other readers.
Let’s have a closer look.
In June, I finally started reading again after a TWO YEAR hiatus.
Two years without reading was a LONG time for me. I remember years where I read upwards of almost 200 books in a year, so to jump from that to reading barely anything (and by “barely anything,” I mean I read ONE book one year.)
I definitely longed to read and would pick up a book here and there, but nothing excited me or kept my focus. That’s not to say the books I picked up weren’t going to be fantastic books, but my mood just wasn’t there.
It. Was. Weird.
In June, I picked up New Girl in Little Cove by Damhnait Monaghan and loved it. It was the perfect book to get me out of my reading funk, and I haven’t looked back since.
I read a whopping 56 books!
For some, 56 books might not seem like a huge number, but it makes me so happy to see how many books I read. Not all of them were books solely for me; I did read a lot with my kids.
I also found a lot of joy in rereading and reread SEVEN books.
My kids and I read NINE books together (not including the many levelled readers we read or the Dog Man books my son would read to me over and over).
I read THREE nonfiction books and would like to at least double that number in 2023.
My longest read: A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon
My shortest read: The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe
My favourite book of 2022: The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman
My least favourite book of 2022: Survive the Night by Riley Sagar
I got my excitement back for reading and started my blog, and started to get social again with other readers.
If you’re a reader, you know how much fun it is to chat with other readers about the books you’ve read, the ones you want to read, the covers you love, the covers you hate, etc.
I finally felt like I could start a reading blog again, AND I started on Instagram again.
Let me tell you; it is GREAT to be a part of the bookish community again.
Stay tuned for my 2023 reading goals!
