December 2022 Reading Wrap Up
At the end of December, are you reminiscing about your reading month?
Here’s my December 2022 Reading Wrap Up.
December was a “mixed bag” reading month as you can tell from my star ratings. Out of the 11 books completed, I had zero 5-star reads, one 4.5-star read, four 4-star reads, four 3-3.5–star reads, two 2-star reads. I had two DNFs. Not a stellar way to end the year.
My 2022 Stats/2023 Goals Post is Scheduled for 12/29/22.
My Most Memorable Reads (Top Ten) is Scheduled for 1/3/23.

Two more to add to my record year of DNFs
One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle (DNF 27%), unlikable character, bored with premise
Iona Iverson’s Rules For Commuting (DNF 38%), not feeling the quirkiness
