My Top 5 Favorite Reads of 2022

2022 has been quite the year, and while it’s not over yet, I’m looking back at some of the books that have meant the most to me. ๐Ÿงก

1. The Key to Extraordinary by Natalie Lloyd

My first book by this author. Hauntingly beautiful. ๐Ÿงก Changed my perspective about ghosts in stories. ๐Ÿ˜‰

// My Review //

2. Ignite by Jenna Terese

Got me back into the indie book world. Clean and meaningful superhero novel. A new favorite author.

// My Review //

3. Kate’s Informant by Sarah Holman

A terrible twist in the series. Gorgeous themes. Even more heart-filled than usual. ๐Ÿงก

// My Review //

4. Apprentice by Kristen Young

First Enclave book I’ve read. Meaningful sci-fi. A new trilogy to love.

// My Review //

5. Happily Ever Afters by Elise Bryant

Cute and sweet. Opportunity for me to experience more culture. Helped me understand my anxiety.

// My Review //

And now for the winner of the Grand Prize giveaway…
