Something I have found I enjoy doing is looking back on past TBRs and anticipated lists and taking mental stock of what I thought of those books. Was I right in choosing them? Why did I or did I not enjoy about them? Did I actually read them at all?
I’ve been doing this for myself for a while now and thought I’d share it with you as well! So, today, we are going to look back at my most anticipated list from the first quarter of 2022 and see, first, if I read the books and, secondly, if I enjoyed them.
We are all very much aware that, so far, 2022 has been an absolute shit show. “New year new me” has turned into the war in Ukraine, new strains of COVID, inflation, and companies still not respecting their employees. My Big Sad and existential dread lead me trying to find some bright spots for far this year.
And what is brighter than escapism? In this case, it took the form of my favorite books so far this year which I thought I’d share with you!
