It is that time of year to look back at the running log of books I have read. I keep a complete list in my “projects” where I have been tracking what I have read since 2015
2022 had significantly more travelling in 2021 however I found that despite this I still only managed to get 2 physical books read. Maybe 2023 will be the year to increase that as a challenge.
That said 2022 was a good year. and I managed to read 19 books but did not pass the record of 22 books consumed in 2021
The top 4 books
So what were my 2022 gems?
|The Maid by Nita Prose – this book has an interesting twist that I did not see coming. The story centres on Molly, a hardworking maid with exacting standards who works at the Regency Grand Hotel. The more you learn about Molly, the more you see that Molly sees the world in a different way.|
|A bit of a stretch by Chris Atkins. A very funny read, however, the book will your reading will turn to deep despair. The book gives a must-read insight into the British prison system “where it is easier to get ‘spice’ than paracetamol”|
|Mythos by Stephen Fry. Steven Fry the consummate storyteller takes the reader on “a romp through the lived of the ancient greek Gods.” I read this book as an audiobook and I was immersed in the stories like I was sitting around a campfire being told them by a wonderful narrator. |
|Immune by Philipp Dettmer the books is described as “A gorgeously-illustrated deep dive into the immune system that will forever change how you think about your body – how it works and why it is both your greatest ally and most dangerous enemy – from the creator of the popular science YouTube channel Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell.” I could not agree more it was an excellent insight into the immune system.|
