Twenty books most people lie about reading
I did finally get to this book. I had to read it for class. I truly enjoyed the story, but it was wordy. I found a shorter version that gave all of the highlights, but not the nuances, so I read that, also. Both were very good books.
Best books of 2022
The above link shows some of the best books of 2022, grouped by category. There are a lot of good books here, and I hope to get to more of them soon. There is the best nonfiction, mystery and suspense, and even the best picture books. The link is a great place to start if you need a jumping off point for your next book.
Goodreads’ editors released a list of upcoming releases that they are very excited about. I have linked it here.
There are a few on the list that I have already marked as want to read. I’m excited for these releases. There are 68 books on the list and about a third sound interesting to me, right off the bat. A few I know I will definitely not read.
Take a peek at the list and let me know what you think.
Medieval historical fiction
Medieval historical fiction seems like a rather specific genre. I understand that there are a lot of fiction books about this time period, but I haven’t read many of them.
The above linked article lists several good ones, but I haven’t read any of these. Some sound interesting, though. I think it’s worth it to take a peek at the list.
Ten Best Books of All Time
I disagree with most of this list. A few of them are worth reading, but most of them feel like required reading to me. I feel that I have to read them because they are classics, but it probably isn’t worth my time, since there are so many other books out there to read.
I am disappointed with the top ten authors of all time. Only one woman was listed, but I wasn’t really surprised because of the smaller percentage of female writers from the time.
Maybe we should come up with a list that is a little more modern?
Pride Month books
Amazon posted its list of books recommended for Pride Month. I was a little disappointed that none of them were on Kindle Unlimited, but I understand that Amazon wants to sell books.
There are some cute children’s books on the list. I may get around to them later, but not this month.
I have read some of the books on the adult list already, and would recommend most of them. A few I wouldn’t read again, but someone might like to read them.
Take a peek at the list and go for it.
Trans day of visibility
March 31 is Trans Day of Visibility. In honor of today, here’s a list of books that celebrate Trans people. I hope that I get to read some of these soon.
5. Girl Haven by Lilah Sturges, ill. by Meaghan Carter, let. by Joamette Gil
10. The Seep by Chana Porter
I found the list on the above linked article interesting. They are stories told by more than one person.
I was reminded of a book I had read a while ago and I had forgotten its title. I spent a while looking for it. Finally found it!
This list has some interesting books on it. I look forward to reading many of them.
For allies who want to do better
The above linked article tells about books to help allies do better. I am sorry about the font and color of the list of books below, but I seem to have difficulties changing them. They do look like they would be good books, though.
Octavia E. Butler
Writings by Radical Feminists of Color
Beverly Daniel Tatum
Carol Anderson and Tonya Bolden
Ibram X. Kendi
Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers
2022 Anticipated books
According to Goodreads, the books in the above linked article are the most anticipated books of 2022.
I am interested in several of them. The one about Agatha Christie’s 11 day disappearance looks interesting, as does the book that is described as a cross between Rebecca and Mexican Gothic.
It looks like 2022 will be a great year for reading, judging by this list. Happy reading!
