Every year, at the end of the year, I look back on all the books I have read the year before and list my favorites overall. This year, my goal was again 100 books. I made it slightly above goal due to a lot of reading this winter break. The added bonus of this post is that you don’t have to bother to read any of my other posts over the course of the year.
And, in other exciting news, THIS IS MY 1000th POST. I have kept this blog for 9 years and in November of 2023, it will make the decade. Crazy. I hope it still is helpful to people. While I have grown lazier over that decade, it helps me remember what I have read and hopefully suggest good titles for others.
This year I had seven 5-star books and 19 4.5-star choices.
Here are my 2022 reading stats:
Books finished: 106
Fiction: 91 (86%)
Non-fiction: 14 (13%), including 13 memoirs
Authors of color: 20 (19%)
Male/Female authors: 89 female (84%), 17 male (16%)
Average rating: 3.8
Repeat authors: 46 (43%)
