My goal in 2022 was to read 24 books, three more than last year. I ended up reading (or listening to) 28 books!
Like last year, I signed up for the #ReadICT reading challenge through our local library. Here are the 2022 categories and the books I read for each category.
- A book by a debut author: How to Be Perfect, Michael Schur
- A book with a cover you like: Maid, Stephanie Land
- A book that intimidates you: On Writing Well, Stephen King
- A book about a culture or topic you’re unfamiliar with: The Nature Fix, Florence Williams
- A middle-grade or teen book: Airball, Lisa Harkrader
- A book about mythology or folk tales: The Hidden Oracle, Rick Riodian
- Reread a favorite book: The Devil Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger
- A book set at sea or on a beach: The Hypnotist Love Story, Liane Moriarty
- An immigration story: You Can’t Be Serious, Kal Penn
- A genre-blending book (fantasy/romance, historical mystery, etc.): When No One Was Watching, Alyssa Cole
- A book that deals with mental illness: Hidden Valley Road, Robert Kolker
- A book by an author visiting Wichita or hosted remotely by a Wichita organization: Bad Kansas, Becky Mandelbaum
I’ve enjoyed participating in the reading challenge, and I’ll be signing up again in 2023. My goal is to read or listen to 30 books.
