Monthly Wrap-Up: February 2022

  • Servant Mage by Kate Elliott (★★★☆☆)
  • Dead Silence by S.A. Barnes (★★★☆☆)

MONTHLY TOTAL: 2
YEARLY SO FAR: 7

Two!! I read only two books this month, and one of them was a novella! In my defense, for most of February I was in Egypt, hanging out with family and generally vacationing, and I’ve never been very good at reading whilst on vacation. I also spent a while trying to get through OUR WIVES UNDER THE SEA but ended up DNF’ing it nearly halfway through because I was bored.

10 Authors to Read More of in 2022

As always, I’m out here making TBRs even though my reading seems to keep decreasing drastically (I’ve only read one book thus far in February dlkjalfkhla), but hey, list making for its own sake is fun too…here’s a list of some authors I’d like to read more of this year.

15 Favorite Books of 2021

Last year I enjoyed so many books that I had to split up this post into three — speculative, non-speculative, and non-fiction. This year, The Year of the Reading Slump, I have 15 books in total that have made it onto the list, which is an indicator of how much my reading year kind of sucked, sadly. So, the fact that these books managed to stand out in the middle of one of my worst reading years ever should tell you how good they are!

They are absolutely in no particular order except maybe kind of chronological, going in order from December to January, but honestly, even that’s not accurate. Oh well. Doesn’t matter.

Onto the books!
