The start of 2022 has been good reading wise. I haven’t enjoyed everything I’ve read, but I’ve been (mostly) entertained so I’ll take it as a win.
As always click on the title to read my review. And all the thanks to Romie @RomieWeDeserveLove for the rep indicators. The 🏳️🌈 means lgbtq rep, ☀️ means major characters of color, and 🌸 means mental illness, disability, abuse, or trauma rep. I’m adding which will indicate my rereads, 🎧 for my audiobooks, 📑 for non-fiction and true crime, 🎁 to indicate my ARCs or gifted books & ❌ for books I DNF’d. Hopefully I won’t have to use that last one a lot.

Least Favorite Book
IOU by Kristy Marie. This just wasn’t good at all – the characters had no chemistry and it felt like I was either dumped into the middle of a book or the second book in a series.
Him & Us, a duology by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy was a reread for me, but I think I loved the books even more this time around than five years ago when I read them the first time. We & Jamie are an amazing couple and I love them dearly.
