December 30, 2021: What’s on the reading horizon for January, 2022!
Sis sent me the this pic from back in the day. Truth is, if you’d have taken a photo of me at any point in my life, chances are good I’d have been holding a book.
Which makes it downright shameful I won’t be posting a Best of Reads for 2021 since I did little to no reading this year. Previous years have seen me go through over a hundred books but the pandemic – and, specifically, this extended development period – has really quashed my desire to read.
BUT I’m going to (try to) put a change to that in 2022. I’m going to set myself a simple goal of a book a week and aim to target 50 for the year. Once I’m (hopefully) back in the swing of things, I should double that count – however I’m going to start with a modest target. Here’s my short list…
Greenwich Park – Katherine Faulkner (4th)
No And to Light On – Yara Zgheib (4th)
Reckless Girls – Rachel Hawkins (4th)
The Highhouse – Jessie Greengrass (4th)
The Swells – Wil Aiten (4th)
The School for Good Mothers – Jessamine Chan
A Flicker in the Dark – Stacy Willingham (11th)
Battle of there Linguist Mages – Scott Moore (11th)
Deep Dive – Ron Walter (11th)
Mickey 7 – Edward Ashton (15th)
The Good Son – Jacquelyn Mitchard (18th)
Reminders of Him – Colleen Hoover (18th)
Joan is Okay – Weike Wang (18th)
Last Resort – Andrew Lipstein (18th)
Light Years From Home – Mike Chen (18th)
Rod of Bones – Christopher Golden (25th)
The Accomplice – Lisa Lutz (25th)
The Overnight Guest – Heather Gudenkauf (25th)
Dead Silence – S.A. Barnes (25th)
Goliath – Tochi Onyebuchi
