2022 Reading List

I had another great reading year thanks to my reading goals, so I knew I wanted to intentionally plan a list of books to read this year. 

But, some big ideas that have been percolating in my mind have given way to a new desire for less structure in many different areas, including my reading goals. I really needed these reading challenges the last two years to get me reading different types of books and to push me to read "harder" books. 

And that diet of excellent books has helped awaken my natural curiosity to read more widely. So I already have a great list of books on my TBR list. And it seems disingenuous to force them into arbitrary categories on a challenge.

So this year, I will plan to read most of the books on my list below. Maybe next year I will be back to Books and Chocolate, Schole Sisters 5x5, or this art one from Rebecca at A Humble Place.

I've put the books into a few categories to keep them organized and see what categories I'm covering (and missing). 

    Self Improvement / Parenting / Homeschooling
    New-to-Me Fiction Writers
    Other Nonfiction
    That makes a list of 36 books which is manageable but challenging for me at a rate of three per month. All of these books were already owned by me, except the two Howard Pyle books which I bought myself as birthday presents, or they are library books/ebooks. 

    I know I will read books that aren't on this list (I already read The Bat by Joe Nesbo and the next book in that series!) but I hope that this list will nudge me to read most of these titles before we ring in 2023. 

    I'd love to hear what you are excited to read this year.
