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.
I’m not going to sit here and pretend that March was a magical month. We’ve watched the war in Ukraine escalate as lives are lost, we’ve seen yet another wave of COVID virus mutation make its way through our populations, watched inflation absolutely cripple those already struggling monetarily, and we are all out here just doing our best to not come apart at the seams.
I think my overall feelings are reflected in my reading for the month. I didn’t find joy in much that I read and a lot of my reading just felt like going through the motions. Not every month can be a winner.
