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
This was such a bore honestly. And I was so disappointed because I thought I would love the small town setting and the forced proximity but I felt nothing for the characters.
This month Kennedy Ryan has cemented herself as an autobuy author for me. Going from having read none of her books, to 4 this month and giving them all 4 stars or more made for a really great reading experience. While I enjoyed all of the books I read, there’s something special about Bristol and Grip.
First Lines Fridays
none this month!
Until next time,
