TBR 2022

Last year I read 32 books, up from 31 the previous year. There’s a lot of new items on the list this year. In the past couple years, I mainly added things just because I wanted to read them. This is still true, but this year, I’ve also given a lot of priority to books I already have but have not read. There’s not a lot of space here in Casa de Bowtie, and if I need to find some of my books a new home where they’ll receive more love, then I need to know that, pronto!

Anyway, here’s my TBR (To-Be-Read list) for 2022!


  • Bold green text denotes a book I read
  • Bold blue text denotes a book I read that was not originally on the list
  • (Audio) denotes a book I read in audiobook format
  • (Hybrid) denotes a book I read simultaneously in audiobook and traditional formats.
  • * Denotes a book I’m “prioritizing” because I already have a physical copy.

Books on Initial List: 65

  • Books from List Read: 11
  • Additional Books Read: 27
  • Total Books This Year: 38
