2022 Reading Wrap-up

I posted on my social media and asked who would like to know my personal reading list for 2022.  Many of you said that you would love to know what I read last year, so here you go!  I keep track of my reads on the app called StoryGraph.  It’s a very visual tracker and I like its design!

In 2022, I read 58 books—48 fiction and 10 non-fiction, (14 were audio books.)  My top genre was historical fiction—no surprise there!  My top 5 reads were:

Whew! That was a lot of books!  It’s the most I’ve read in one year.  And definitely the most audiobooks I’ve listened to.  As an affiliate with libro.fm, I get many Advanced Listener Copies free of charge, so I take advantage of that.

Here’s to a wonderful year of reading in 2023!  I never set a reading goal—I just read what I want, when I want.  It works for me!

Happy Reading,  Amber
