2022 End of the Year Survey

2016 2017 | 2018 | 2019 | 2020 | 2021

Yes we are at that time of year again where we start looking back and often we do that with the end of the year survey as created by The Perpetual Page-Turner. The last updated survey was updated in 2020 (that I can find). It is now the 28th and we have a few more days but I’m not expecting to finish a whole lot more books with this being my sons Christmas vacation.

I skipped a few questions about romantic relationships and all that jazz. That is why there is a jump in the numbers sometimes.

Number Of Books You Read: 130 (reading that last one now)

1. Best Book You Read In 2022?

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?

  1. For the past two years I have been raving about Nghi Vo’s historical fiction – I really need to pick up some of her fantasy! I’ll have to let you know if I cry at LOST IN THE MOMENT AND FOUND haha. And I expect I should get to EMILY WILDE this year as well! Happy New Year 🙂
