Today is the last day of 2022, and to say the least, it’s been one hell of a ride.
Books have definitely been a lifesaver for me this past year. I’ve grown and learned a lot about myself through reading and writing reviews. I’ve discovered my passion for reading and writing again, something I haven’t experienced since high school.
With that being said, let’s look at my stats for 2022!
Books Read: 39*
- Pages Read: 15,532

*Did not do a review for A Court of Sliver Flames, Six of Crows, or Crooked Kingdom
Well, I didn’t quite reach my 50-book goal, but I did thoroughly enjoy my reading journey this past year! I’ve discovered new authors that I like and honed in on my taste in books; though I still plan to venture out every now and then.
Based on my favorite and least favorite authors/books, I’d say I strongly prefer creative, fantastical worlds with simple plots. I enjoy the intricacy of world-building, magic systems, and complex gray characters.
However, I don’t like a plot that is too complex for its own good or revolves solely on spicy. This also suggests that just because a world is interesting and on par with my liking (Holly Black), it can easily become a dud with static characters, a horrible plot, or too much sex.
But I’m excited to see what books come my way in 2023 and what fantastical adventures I’ll go on.
