2022 Reading Wrap and Book of the Year

As I say goodbye to 2022, I’ve reflected on all the books I’ve read. Thank goodness for Goodreads which helps me track what I’ve read and when. I swear the books I read last year were read years ago which goes to show that a year actually is a long time.

Check out my reading list below. Perhaps you’ve read some of them too. But it is hard to pick a favourite as I had a few five stars in there. But I couldn’t go past Labyrinth by Amanda Lohrey as winning my book of the year. Beautifully written, a tale told well, I really enjoyed it.
