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 (e.g., it me took ten days—a long time for me—to finish my first book of 2022). But I feel like I’ve been reading at a brisk clip since then, something my reading journal confirms. That’s in spite of the fact that I’ve abandoned two books at the 100-page mark in the past month.
I’ve been reading widely of late—a balance of fiction and non, a nice amount of backlist titles, a few new releases, and while today’s Quick Lit list doesn’t capture it, much of my reading time has been spent with forthcoming books. (If you’re thinking that’s because it’s Summer Reading Guide preparation season, you’re absolutely right!)
I’m using the My Reading Life book journal, of course, which is what you see pictured above. Instead of using the habit tracker to track the number of days I read per month, I’m using it to track the number of books completed. (i.e., no matter when I began a book, I note it for the month I finished it.
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.
