2022 Bookish Wrap-Up

Well. Here we are. Somehow we are saying goodbye to 2022 and welcoming a new year.

Last year, I determined that with a baby on the way, it would make the best sense that I don’t set a reading goal. Instead, I would just read when I could and enjoy having those fleeting moments to myself.

I’m glad I did that.

This year, I read 34 books. Not too bad for a first-time mom juggling work, baby, and home!
