2022 Book Wrap-up

Here’s a list of all the books I finished this year. There were about 50 others I didn’t finish if you’d like to see my comments on my blog of why. Otherwise, all of these should have their own review- just check out the tabs above on this site.

They’re ranked in order of star rating. It looks like there were 8 perfect five star reads of the 130 total! 90 of them were 4-star ratings, so that’s a great chunk of quality reads! I apologize in advance for any typos below that spelled a novel title or author name incorrectly.
