Gravy's 2022 reading record

Post by Gravy »

This is to keep track of (and keep myself accountable to) my current goal of reading at least a chapter a day in the New Year.

This will be a hodgepodge of whatever I happen to be reading. Including books that I've been working on for over a year previously (reading slumps suck!), and ones that I may quit.

I will still keep separate reading diaries for individual books, but this will track my overall reading for the year.

Unbury Carol by Josh Malerman is on my reading list. Is it good?

Unbury Carol by Josh Malerman is on my reading list. Is it good?
It's actually a bit odd at the moment. I had read the info a while back, so I only remembered the broad strokes of the plot before I started. I seriously thought it was set 'now'-ish for several pages.
Once I settle in for an odd historical fantasy, with a not insignificant modern feel, it will no doubt take over my reading.

Anyway, it's lost me for a little while, but I can tell it's one I'll enjoy once I'm in a specific mood.

At the moment, Toby is taking all (or at least most of) my attention.

I have missed my goal a couple of days, but have mostly kept on track, and have read more than I have in years.

I also set a goal of reading 50 books. It may not happen, but I'm not worried about it. I'm mainly just interested in keeping up with this goal (a chapter a day), and (hopefully) catching up with October Day before the new book comes out.
