The 2022 Reading List

Happy end of 2022 everyone!

As you all probably know, I am a huge book nerd and love to share a roundup of all the novels I read over the course of the year. My original reading goal for the year was 50 books, and I’m pleased to say that I in fact surpassed this target and ended up reading 55 books!

This is probably the most books that I’ve read in a year since before I went to college back in 2013 – I really lost touch with my love for reading while being overwhelmed with schoolwork and didn’t get back in a reading groove until a few years after being out of undergrad. Despite starting grad school this fall, I am determined to continue to keep up with my reading as a form of self-care! I definitely fell behind during a few months throughout this year (especially with some crazy work weeks and the start of midterms/finals this semester), so I had to play catch up on a few unfinished novels before the end of the year, but it was still worth it to hit my goal and feel this sense of accomplishment!

I am proud of myself for exceeding my 2022 reading goal and am excited to share with you all the amazing books I had the pleasure of diving into this year! There was definitely a breadth of genres, from mysteries to informational to romance and everything in between, so I just know there are books here for every individual interest. Let me know if you also loved any of these novels or have recommendations for me in the new year!

Without further ado, here is my 2022 reading list:
