End-of-Year Reading Check, Part 1
Does anyone else feel like this year has absolutely flown by at top speed??
Back in June/July, I followed a trend I saw on TikTok, the “mid-year reading check,” which was a great idea for a blog post (and ended up as two posts). This month and next month, I present to you my end-of-year reading check!
So, here’s what (fiction) I’ve read in the second half of this year, in chronological order, with a bit of commentary about each book:
Mid-Year Reading Check, Part 2
This post is a continuation from last month’s, since it got so long. Here are the other six (fiction) books I read in the first half of this year:
Mid-Year Reading Check, Part 1
Wow, 2022 is half over already! Can you believe it? This year seems to be flying by!
I’ve been seeing a trend on TikTok lately, the “mid-year reading check,” and thought it would make for a good blog post! (I already did a fun video on it.)
Mirrors, Sand, and Glass
Thinklings’ newest book (Sand to Glass, a dark literary fantasy) has got me thinking more than usual, lately, about mental health, personality types, and how everyone has their own way of coping with stress. . . . It’s a timely book—very timely, indeed!
You guys, you guys, you guys!!! My friend Katherine Vick's new book just came out today, and it is indeed EPIC!! The Merry Band (and the first book in the series, The Disposable) is absolutely HILARIOUS and reminiscent of Terry Pratchett books (which I keep meaning to reread) and The Princess Bride - which I did read in college, and the book's just as awesome as the movie!

What I've Been Reading Lately
If you follow me on Goodreads*, you may have noticed this year I’m kind of into fairy tale retellings (FTRs). Those are super popular right now, but I’ve never been terribly interested in them, myself. I never hated or opposed them, either, but I just never got swept up in the obsession. (At no point have I felt the urge to write one. Fanfiction? Yep. FTRs? Still nope, at least right now.)
Do you like to read scary books around Halloween? In this post I'm going to briefly talk about my favorite spooky novels and why I recommend them. (Pictured is most of my collection. Sequels not included due to lack of space.)
