2022 was not a great year of reading for me. It is probably the worst since I started tracking my reading. I only recorded around 30 books and some of these were DNFs. But of those 30 I found many new favorites. Here are a few of those favorites, and some of the not so favorites I came across.
The Choice by Nora Roberts is the third and final book of The Dragon Heart Legacy. I loved the build-up to the final battle but then felt a little let down that Odran didn’t put up more of a fight.
Happy New Year! Let's hope we break the curse of the 2020s this year. Not just the pandemic, but I've been struggling with my reading. Last year I think was the worst, although that's hard to say because I didn't track 2020 or much of 2021. I also struggled even in my tracking because many of the books I borrowed from my library or Scribd did not get added to my tracking spreadsheet. I hope to have a post somewhat soon, as in sometime this month, about reading apps. For reasons I'll get into in that post, I feel this may help with my excuses for forgetting to add, or just not adding books to my tracking.
This is a recap of The Becoming by Nora Roberts. If you are looking to read the final book, The Choice, but don't want to re-read The Becoming, keep reading for a refresh of what happens in The Becoming.

Witch13 by Patrick Delaney I read this months ago after obtaining an early copy from NetGalley. This is out now and is such a good horror. I’m still jumping at shadows, but then horror never was one of my favorite genres. It’s too good at scaring me. Witch You Well by Colleen Cross Witch You… Continue reading 11 Books to Read this Autumn
