My goal for 2022 is to read 24 books this year which correlates to 2 books a month 😊 I actually have managed to read a few more books than that in the last month and a half so I thought I would do a little rating and review of the books so far.
Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich- 10/10: This was actually a re-read as I originally read it when it first came out and I went to see the show in New York and I decided to re-read it after watching the film. I am a big fan of the musical of this book and also absolutely love all of the extra nuances in this book as well including learning a bit more about the actual Connor Murphy.
84 Charing Cross Road/The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street by Helene Hanff- 8/10: The first part of this book is comprised of letters between the author Helene and a bookshop in London discussing rare antique books that Helene wants shipped over to America and as the letters progress we also see the friendship progress between Helene and the people working in the bookshop and also how world events affect their lives in different ways across the globe. The second half of the book The Duchess of Bloomsbury street is Helenes diary from when she travelled to London
Evidence of the affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid- 9/10: I am a big fan of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s writing and this book/short story was no different 😊 This book is also written in the style of two people writing letters to one another after discovering that their significant others are having an affair with each other and follows their journey since.
Pretty Guilty Women by Gina LaManna-10/10: As many of you will know if you have read any of my other book posts I am a big fan of murder mystery books and this one I borrowed from my friend Hannah and I loved it! I loved the style of writing of this book with all of the different POVs.
24 hour Cafe by Libby Page- 10/10: This is another book that I borrowed from my friend Hannah and I absolutely loved it 😊 it was a very chill read and would be a perfect beach read. I loved reading about all of the people’s lives that came into the cafe and also getting to know the two waitresses and their friendship
As Good as Dead by Holly Jackson- 9/10: I absolutely loved the first book in the A Good Girls Guide to Murder series and although I didn’t like the other two in the series quite as much I did still really enjoy them 😊 I’m sad that this is the last book that we’ll get to read about Pip and her friends and family.
Let me know in the comments if you have read any of these books and what you thought of them 😊
One thought on “Goodreads Challenge 2022 Pt 1 😊”
No, not any of those
My goal for this year is 10 books- probably because part of what I planned to read are long book
Started in the middle of Goblet of Fire—-so have a series to finish; now on Order on Phoenix, the longest book in the Harry Potter series. The other books I plan to read depends on when I finally finish this reread series
