One quarter left of the year and I only have 8 books left in my 2022 TBR!
One quarter left in the year 2022 and I’ve read 22 of the books on my 2022 TBR, making my completion percentage 78.57%. I’m still on track to finish by the end of the year, yay! Of the 6 I read this quarter, there was one 5 star, three 4 stars, and two 3 stars.
My predictions for what I’ll have finished by end of each month as we wrap up the year:

Half way into the year and I’ve read over half of my 2022 TBR!
Officially half way through 2022 and I’ve read 16 of the books of my 2022 TBR, making my completion percentage 53.33%. In my first quarter update, I predicted my completion percentage would be between 60-70% at this point, yeah no. But I’m on track to finish by the end of the year, so it’s all good. Of the 5 I read this quarter, there was one 5 star, two 4 stars, one 3 star, and one non-fiction I will not give a star rating.
My predictions for what I’ll have finished by end of Q3:
A quarter into the year and I’ve read over a third of my 2022 TBR!
Only three months into the year and I’ve read 11 of the books on my 2022 TBR, making my completion percentage 36.67%, not bad if I do say so myself! And even better yet, 7 of those books I rated 5 stars!
If I’m being honest, I don’t think it’s going to take the entire year for me to read all 30 of these books. My guess is by the end of June, my completion percentage will be between 60-70%. I love this TBR project and feel so inspired and excited to read every book on this list!
My predictions for what I’ll have finished by end of Q2:
The 30 books, new and backlist titles, I hope to read throughout 2022
I can’t be sure what possessed me to make a 30 book TBR at the end of 2020 to guide my reading in 2021, but I’m so glad I did! Of the 30 books selected for 2021, I read 25 of them and four became 5 star favorites (2021 TBR recap linked here)
When it came time to start brainstorming for my 30 book, 2022 TBR, I knew I wanted more structure when it came to my selection process and created 5 themes with 6 titles in each category. This list is definitely heavy on new and recently released books, with 75% or more having been released in the past 3 years. While there is an obvious emphasis on thrillers and mysteries, there is also science fiction, historical fiction, nonfiction, a critically acclaimed memoir, a work place romance, and a short story collection
I’m so excited to start planning and reading for the buzzword readathon, created and hosted by Kayla of Books and Lala on booktube! In her words, “The Buzzword Readathon (#buzzwordathon) is a monthly readathon, running the first week of each month (1st through 7th). Each month has a designated word/word theme and you have a week to read as many books as you like with that word in the title. Alternatively you can complete this as a year-long reading challenge, and read just ONE book each month featuring the monthly buzzword until you complete the whole challenge!”
This is my second year participating in her reading challenge and I couldn’t’ be more excited to start this new year with all new prompts. This time around I had 550+ titles on my Goodreads TBR list when selecting my top choice and my back up options
In 2021, I read 25 books throughout the year, six of which I rated 5 stars. Here’s hoping to that some of these titles become new all time favorite books
