Building Worlds and Filling Them With Magic

Last year’s list was ambitious. In my defense, I read A LOT of books, just like, only one of them was on the actual list. So, I will post a list that needs to be reviewed, books currently in progress, and the ones I have stacked up and waiting.

~This post contains affiliate links. If you’re interested in these books, please consider purchasing through the link provided. It gives me a little bit of Jeff Bezo’s filthy, filthy lucre because writing full time is expensive, and he doesn’t need the money for more joyrides in space. :-)~

Finished in 2022 that need to be reviewed

  • Finale, by Stephanie Garber
  • Our Crooked Hearts, by Melissa Albert
  • The Crimson Thread, by Kate Forsyth
  • Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen (unabridged, and the audiodrama)
  • Once Upon a Broken Heart, by Stephanie Garber
  • Legendborn, by Tracy Deonn
  • Ramona, by Helen Hunt Jackson
  • Josefina series, by Valerie Tripp

In progress (I DO NOT LIKE reading more than one at a time, but 2022, amirite)

  • Tower of Ravens, by Kate Forsyth
  • The Silmarilion, by JRR Tolkien
  • A Feast for Crows, by George RR Martin
  • Bloodmarked, by Tracy Deonn

As with last year’s list, this is mostly to keep myself honest. But you’re welcome to keep up with me. What are your reading goals for 2023?
