2022 in Reading

O Books!

Reader Beware:For the categories that I made up, I tried to avoid repeats. So if a book is mentioned as “Best New Books” it’s not also “Most Poignant” (and vice versa)-even though lots of these books could fall into multiple categories.

2022 was the year of NO reading challenges, and it shows. I let myself read whatever I wanted to read (and could get from my library). The results are a LOT of basic white-lady picks. There are also many middle grade books still in my queue that probably belong here (I’m thinking particularly about Lolo’s Light by Liz Garton Scanlon and Three Strike Summer by Skyler Schrempp).

The image contains 50-60 book covers of the books read by the poster. It also contains text reading: 2022 in Books
