Reading has felt slow this year. I haven’t felt too excited about any books lately. Lots of decent books but not much that was WOW. My favorite book of the year was probably The King of Attolia. I really enjoyed reading the whole series and miss the characters. You can read my review of that book in my 6 Months of Books post.
With starting a full time job I scaled back my book goal to 45 books and just scraped by with it after reading 7 books in December. Without further ado, here are reviews of a book from each month.
(You can find the full list of books read this year at the end of the post)
Two years ago today I graduated college, but it was 2020 so while it was a big moment it still felt like nothing really changed. But now two years later, a lot has changed. (Although surprisingly its raining here just like it was that day).
The past few monthsI’ve felt like I have been in an Learning to Adult crash course. Which is a big reason why the blog has been completely stagnant. In August I unexpectedly took a last-minute job teaching second grade. Those of you who have been around for a while know that I went to college to get my degree in theater, and those of you who know me, know I’ve said many times “no way will I go into teaching.” Yeah… jokes on me. I teach second grade, and even crazier… I like it.
August slipped away faster than I could even think of getting out a post about all my adventures. The second I thought I had time I unexpectedly received a full-time job offer and within 48 hours was thrown into my first adult job. So it has been a busy past few weeks with lots of adjustments.
I got to spend three weeks in the summer spending time with 2 of my best friends from college and it was epic I thought I would take you along on a trip down memory lane.
The first six months of the year have FLOWN BY! Does anyone else feel this way? I had planned to do a reading update or book reviews earlier but I just never got around to it. So now you get a 6 Month Book Dump!
Last year I did my 50 in 52 weeks challenge, but with working more this year I decided to cut it down to 45 books for 2022.
The count as of this first week of July, I have read 23/45.
I am slightly behind what I thought I would be at but am not too worried. As not to overwhelm with 22 separate reviews I am going to review one book for each month. A complete list of the books I’ve read will be at the end of the post!
Summers spent in Lake Tahoe have always been some of my favorite memories. I got to go up with my family last week for a few days and spend some time with my grandparents. I am always quick to recommend checking out South Lake Tahoe because there is so much to do. There are always certain non-negotiable items on the to-do list but this year we tried some new things too!
