What I Read in 2022

As it’s the end of the year, it’s time to share my annual post of what I read in 2022.

In 2022, I read 93 books but didn’t hit my Goodreads Reading Goal of 100, mostly due to a prolonged reading slump throughout the Spring and Summer. I’m still happy with the number of books I’ve read, as it’s well above average, it’s just a bit less than what I had intended.
