2022 Reading Recap…What’s Coming for 2023?!

My goal in 2022 was to read a book a month totaling 12 books for the year. I was worried with a toddler and just life, that wouldn’t happen. WELL IT DID!

I finished out my year with “It Ends with Us” and “It Starts with Us.” Now I’m moving into “Regretting You” and attempting to finish it by Saturday night, ya know…one to grow on.

I didn’t believe the “Colleen Hoover hype” at first, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, what rock has she been hiding under?! Was it me? Was I hiding under a rock? My best friend and I already have our 2023 book challenge planned and up first in January…yep, CoHo! I’m rather excited! Disclaimer: We didn’t come up with the challenge ourselves. In fact, she’s apart of a Facebook Group called Friends & Fiction.

My goal for 2023 is even more books. I want to complete this monthly challenge but also hit even more books in my “To Be Read” pile. If you don’t have one of these piles I highly suggest making one. It’s motivating!

Our 2023 Monthly Book Challenge is…
January – A Book With A One Word Title
February – A Book Written By A Person Of Color
March – A Cozy Mystery
April – A Book Under 200 Pages
May – A YA Book By An Author With Your First Initial, Last Initial, Or Both Initials
June – A Dual Timeline Book
July – A Book That Has Been On Your TBR Pile For At Least A Year
August – A Book Selected Solely Based On Its Cover
September – A Jane Austen Retelling
October – A be-WITCH-ing Book
November – A Non-Fiction Book Written By An Author In Your State
December – A Holiday Book Written By A Friends & Fiction Book Club Guest

In January we are reading “Hopeless” by Colleen Hoover, February is going to be “All We Left Unsaid” by Natalie K Martin, and March is going to be “The Paris Apartment” by Lucy Foley. From there, we’re still planning our year. I’m excited! I’ve fallen in love with reading all over again after this year. Sometimes getting all caught up in life makes it hard to find time, but I can’t wait.

If you want to join us, I’ve linked the books below, and find me on Instagram! We can keep up a chat there!

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

All We Left Unsaid by Natalie K Martin

The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley

I’ll have to make a post with a list of my TBR pile! It’s a good mix of fiction, nonfiction, happy, sad, romcoms, etc.

Until next time…
