Year in Books 2022

I missed posting my Book List for the last several years. (the 2019 Book List was the last one) Of course, I haven't been posting much of anything, have I? 

The Book Lists started out relatively manageable - up until 2018, I only read somewhere between 40-50 books each year. It still took a while to compile the list and figure out the number of pages and the hours needed to listen to the audiobooks, but I eventually got it done. Then, I just never got around to it for 2020 or 2021. Or, I didn't get around to it in a timely manner. I did eventually take the time to go through all my books for both of those years and record the pages and times in a Notepad file on my computer. And then my computer died, and I can't access that file.

So, I'm going to do the easy thing and link to my Year in Books on Goodreads. 

I read 117 books in 2022, the most ever in any year - 55 of those were books/ebooks, and 62 were audiobooks. 

I'm not sure exactly how that happened. I have started listening to audiobooks at double speed, so I'm sure that helps some.

Favorite books of the year:

  • The Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer read by Katherine Kellgren - I loved these all over again.
  • The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas - my niece got me started, and I've had a hard time putting these books down. I'm reading the last one now.
  • The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt 
  • Fighting Words by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
  • The Villa by Rachel Hawkins

And, because I didn't get my lists done for 2020 and 2021, here are those Years in Books, too:
  • Year in Books 2020 - 80 books - 40 audiobooks and 40 books/ebooks
    the year I met the Vanderbeekers!
  • Year in Books 2021 - 81 books - 40 audiobooks and 42 books/ebooks
    the year my friend Abriana got me started reading the Ranger's Apprentice books. I'd definitely recommend those!
