It’s giving chaotic reader and genre diversity. It’s historical fiction, Greek retellings, campus thriller, book in translation, contemporary fiction, and humor nonfiction about what else but birds. Stand out favorite from the month was The It Girl by Ruth Ware followed by Everyone In This Room Will Someday Be Dead by Emily Austin.

The variety of my reading within a single month is astounding, and impressive, if I do say so myself: a couple romances, a couple of thrillers, a YA non-fiction about racism, my first ever graphic novel, a book of haiku, and even a humous field guide about birds. Top tier, 5 star favorite is Rock Paper Scissors, my first, and certainly not my last, by Alice Feeney – that reveal had me GASPING. Definitely worth mentioning is The Flatshare, the only romance I’ve rated 5 stars that wasn’t written by Emily Henry. Couple other books I loved were Upgrade and The Paper Palace. Pleasantly surprised by Eating Salad Drunk and The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America, the two wild cards for the month

Another month and another couple memoirs, thrillers, a romance, a contemporary, and a poetry collection. The stand out favorite, without a doubt and as expected, is Riley Sager’s The House Across the Lake, which was a solid 4 star mystery-thriller. Pleasantly surprised by It Ends With Us, much better than the last few Colleen Hoover’s I’ve read, and by All Adults Here by Emma Straub. It goes without saying that Know My Name was exceptional, my heart still hurts, Chanel is a force

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:
Three romances in one month, who is she?? Unfortunately, I didn’t really like any of them – but thanks to St. Martin’s Griffin and Goodreads for my ARC copy of A Brush With Love I won in a Goodreads giveaway! I passed it along to a friend who I think will enjoy it more than I did
