2022 Bookish Wrap-Up

I think 2022 was a good bookish year for me. I continue struggling with “too many ARCs and not enough time to read them all” problem, but that’s more of a limit setting problem on my part.

I know some people who hold on to pre-approvals until they are ready to read the book. This may be the direction I have to go in. Especially as the nonprofit I work for still has not replaced my boss, which makes my normal reading schedule, which was already tight, simply impossible.

Bookish Stats

One thing I love about StoryGraph is, well…all the graphs they create for the user:

That’s a lot of pages!!! (The minutes just refers to audio books.)
I don’t think there are any surprises here.
I don’t think there are any surprises here, either.
This is kind of a surprise but I guess all books can’t be fast-paced.

My Favorite Books in 2022

It’s very hard for me to pick a genre specific favorite (even though I did) but this year the overall favorite was clear.

Overall Favorite Book 2022
My choice for romcom favorite.
My choice for thriller favorite.
My choice for fantasy favorite.

So that’s my year in graphs and pictures, how was 2022 for you?

  1. I’ve finally managed to cut right back on arc books – in part because I’ve not even had the time to go on Netgalley and look for them! I also don’t have the motivation to write longer reviews either. I hope things ease up at work and you can find a new balance that works for you.

  2. I haven’t read as many books as I should have. I am nearly finished ‘Sleep’. I have my viewpoints on who the murderer could be. I have two suspects, both unlikely. My daughter has brought me some great looking books. Hopefully I will get to read them.

  3. Okay I feel like I need to use StoryGraph now 😆 Glad you managed to read a lot this year, Book Lovers was definitely one of my fav romances too!

  4. Love the pretty graphs. Net Galley is such an addictive sweet shop isn’t it? I keep telling myself that I’m not going to request any more books but then see something that I just have to read.

    1. I haven’t requested anything in ages. I never realized how many preapprovals I was sent but it’s way more than I can read.

  5. Nice stats (156 books!!) and nice graphs as well. I’ve been meaning to move over to Storygraph – don’t know how complicated it is to transfer data from Goodreads.

  6. No surprise thrillers is your top genre. I exceeded my Goodreads goal this year by a good bit, but I’m trying to slow down on requesting ARCs until I can get some of my own books read. Great year, Tessa!

  7. Oooh, I’m not familiar with Story Graph. I’m going to have to look into that. I really like the way it breaks out genres.

    I normally track on Goodreads. You kicked butt with 156 reads. I think I’m around 107.

    The Night Shift is on my TBR list. I have a lot of catching up to do!

  8. Lessons in Chemistry was my favorite for 2022. Book Lovers didn’t quite make my favorites of 2022 list, but it’s not far behind the others! I love your graphs and charts!

  9. Ooh, I just saw Ordinary Monsters going for 99p on Kindle the other day. Makes me want to go back and check it out now! 😂 I’m so excited to see Lessons in Chemistry on here because I’ll be reading that in 2023 for sure as it’s part of one of my reading challenges. I’ve also seen so much love for Emily Henry’s books although I haven’t read any of them yet but I can’t wait to give them a try! I hope you have an amazing year of reading in 2023, Tessa!
