Books of 2022

It’s about time I finally started this post. Here are all the books I read this year. My main reading goal for this year is to focus on my Read the World Project and hopefully finish it but not sure how that’s going to go. Oh and I’m also trying to read 12 books that were recommended to me by 12 different friends. You can find out more about what I’m reading on my Twitter, Goodreads and Storygragh.
