Wow- the number of books I read in 2022 was more than I realized.
Several blogs that I follow have been listing what they read in 2022 so I thought I would do the same. I have this book by my favorite book blogger Modern Mrs. Darcy, but I can’t remember to always fill it in. One of my goals for 2023 is to keep a better record of what I’ve read.
Here is my list:
Reminders of Him– A good love story, and one that makes you think “What would I do?”
In Order To Live-My daughter told me about this book. It will stay with me a long time. It’s a young woman’s story of escaping North Korea. Heartbreaking!
Red Handed-It’s a sad and disappointing read about how our politicians sell us out to China to line their own pockets.
One Damn Thing After Another– Bill Barr’s account of being Attorney General under two presidents. I loved it!
The One Night– Free if you have Kindle Unlimited. Another Love Story!
Life Force– Tony Robbins shares the latest in medical research
Verity– Of course I read it. It was on every list I saw!!
Yoga Pant Nation– I love all of Laurie Gelman’s books. This is a book 3 so read the others before. You’ll love the main character!
It Ends With Us– Love, domestic abuse, a strong woman– this book has it all. It starts with us just became available at my library and I’ve just started it. Read It Ends With Us first!
A Walk In The Woods– If you’ve ever even thought of hiking the Appalachian Trail, this is a must read.
First Family Detail– A Secret Service agent spills the beans on what those he’s covered are really like!
The Gown– I love this book! Historical fiction at its finest. A great story!!
American Prometheus– This is a very good book. I live where Oppenheimer decided to build the laboratory where the atomic bomb was developed so I have a very special interest in his story. It is also interesting to me to see the parallels between Oppenheimer and Dr. Fauci of today. There is also a movie coming out based on this book in the summer.
All We Ever Wanted– Another book to think “What would I do? What would you do if your high school aged son was accused of rape? Read it to find out what this mom did.
Lessons In Chemistry– My favorite book of the year. My huge treat of the year was my daughter inviting me to her book club where she interview this author! So fun!!
My Year With Eleanor– A young woman messaged me for some book recommendations. She recommended that I read this. It made me want to read a book a purchased about Eleanor Roosevelt but never read.
Daily Creative– My sweet son-in-law who is a writer bought this book for me. I have been using it as part of my morning routine. It contains writing prompts for creativity!
Anna– (free on Kindle Unlimited) who doesn’t want to read about Anna Wintour and Vogue? I love a good memoir and this was good!
Confidence Man– I admit it. I’m fascinated about the fascination with Donald Trump. I’ve read almost every book written about his presidency. This was just one of the many.
Live Wire– If you’ve read this, I’d love to hear your thoughts. This is the only book in 2022 that I wish I hadn’t read. I like Kelly Ripa and so I thought I would love this book, but I did not like it. It made me not really like her. Just makes me sad to feel this way!
The Last Thing He Told Her– This was an OK book. The thing that kept me reading is that much of it takes place in Austin, Texas and I knew exactly where they were in some of the scenes!!
Non- Fiction from my book study with a friend
Atlas Of the Heart– This is a great book study book. My friend and I had some great conversations about it. I recommend buying a hardcopy and not an ebook in this one. You’ll want to mark things and go back to chapters- if you’re like me!
Women of the Bible Speak– This was not a favorite of my book study books, but I like that the author placed a lot of stories about women in one space and had some explanation about them!
Living Untethered– This book might not be for some of my Christian friends, but I see it as a psychology book on how to move forward in life. This book is the sequel to The Untethered Soul. Both books are mind changing about how we view what happens to us so they are Life Changing. These two books are so marked up and written in. I will never get rid of them! My friend and I plan on revisiting them at some point in 2023. If nothing else we will spend some phone time going back over what we marked and wrote the first time we read them- not a full reread!
