My January Reads and The 22 Books For 2022 Challenge


Good Morning Lovelies, 

A few weeks ago, I was watching the brilliant Jessica Jones, AKA The Fat Funny One, on YouTube and in one of her latest videos she mentioned that she would be doing the 22 books for 2022 challenge.

Over the course of the year, she will be trying to read 22 books to mark the year. An idea I absolutely adored and decided that I wanted to join. Ironically the first book we both were reading was the same and we bonded over it. 

Setting myself the challenge has meant I have really got stuck into it. It’s so lovely to close the last page of a fabulous book. I honestly think it is one of the best feelings in the world. A true sense of achievement. Especially, when for so long I couldn’t even read the page of a book, due to my illness. 

Since the start of the year, I have read four books. These include…

  1. Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
  2. A Poem For Every Day Of The Year by Allie Esiri
  3. A Class Act by Rob Beckett
  4. Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

And I have loved every single one of them! Each has kept me entertained from morning to night. Something the two I am now reading are doing to. I am actually fearing going on holiday now, as I know I will want to bring lots of books with me. 

When thinking about this challenge though, it’s made me think about how I want to review or discuss books on the blog. I’ve come to the decision that I want the reviews or mentions to go on the main page. This means I have closed the reading page for now. 

Each book I read or my monthly round ups, like the one on here, will be on the main page for easier discussions to be had. This means that each review will stay on the blog forever, instead of having to be taken down with each new one. Something I am very happy about. 

I am going to be looking for lots of book suggestions, so please let me know what you are reading. Your finds and suggestions are always welcome!
