Guess I wasn’t super impressed in general, huh?
It seems that I enjoy crying my eyes out while reading…

I read mostly fiction…

  2. Woooow, that’s some serious reading! I love seeing all the data, pie charts and stuff, that’s pretty cool. I’ve not read any of your top rated books apart from “Working Stiff”, which I agree was fantastic and super interesting! I hope you find yourself some great books for 2022, too! xx

  3. Wow, I think I read 62 books last year, and that was unusual (I discovered audiobooks). I found that when my kids were babies, I actually read more books because feeding a baby is boring. I discovered an Irish series by Felicity Hayes-McCoy that is just so lovely. The first book is The Library at the Edge of the World. Isn’t that the best?
