Welcome to Quick Lit, where we share short and sweet reviews of what we’ve been reading lately on the 15th of the month.
My reading year got off to a slow start: it took ten days—a long time for me—to finish my first book of 2022. Despite my regular journaling, I didn’t realize how many books I’d been reading in late January and early February until I sat down to compile my Quick Lit possibilities! This monthly invitation to take stock of my reading life is just one reason I love our Quick Lit tradition.
I had a good reading month—and at the same time, I read a heaping handful of books that everybody else seemed to love and I thought were just okay. That’s okay—it happens sometimes—but it doesn’t typically happen with that much frequency. (Don’t feel too sorry for me: I read two forthcoming books I absolutely adored and will get to talk about soon!)
I also read more nonfiction than my round-up of recent reads reflects: I finished one popular nonfiction book late last night (you’ll see it next month) plus an assortment of super-practical nonfiction reads that may or may not hit the blog at some point.
This is just a sampling of the books I’ve read since our last round of Quick Lit. I highly recommend tuning into my podcast What Should I Read Next to hear more about my recent reads. In a show about books, I can’t help but discuss my current reading, plus forthcoming releases that aren’t ready to be shared on the blog but are perfect for podcast conversations!
(I also share what I’m currently reading in our weekly podcast newsletter: if you aren’t already signed up, click here to get on the list.)
I can’t wait to hear about your recent reads in comments.
