In 2022 I have read 29 books, which is a lot less then in the previous year. A couple of the ones I've read were quit thick, but most importantly after I got Covid-19 in March I've lost all motivation to read after work for three months. In July I was feeling better and I've read 21 books since then.

This year I've spent a lot of time with Hillary Mantel and her Thomas Cromwell saga, but I was moved most by Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner and Der Gesang der Berge (The Mountains Sing) by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai.

I have spent the last couple of days reading through best books of 2022 lists and my queue is now filled to the brim again.
