Mid-Year Book Review Roundup

Photo by Lum3n on

It has been a great year for reading so far!

I really enjoyed seeing other bloggers looking at their reading accomplishments in the first half of the year. It encouraged me to look back at what I’ve read so far for 2022. For the year of 2021, I read 24 books. I’m excited to say that I’ve already read 24 books halfway through this year! Yay! I’m hoping to have at least read 48 books for the year of 2022. I’ve shared some basic numbers below, and linked reviews divided up by genre.
