Year in Review: 2022 Reading Challenge Completed ✔

Each year, I try to create a reading challenge that’s not only fun and challenging but also realistic. This year, I set the bar pretty high, and couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ve read over 153 books for this challenge, 85 of those being books that have sat on my kindle for far too long. I’ve discovered a lot of new authors and exciting books in 2022 and can not wait to see what next year’s challenge will bring.

Here are the books that made my 2022 Reading Challenge a success:
