Books I Read in 2022

With the year coming to an end, here is the list of books I read in 2022. I didn’t get through as many books as I would have liked to, but that is the drawback of working 2 jobs and writing on the side.

Including the re-reads of my own books, with the addition of one unlisted novel I wrote, I managed a total of 41 books read in 2022. I would have liked to have read a few more books outside of my own work, but this year was a particularly busy year… after all I did write and edit 3 books in conjunction with working 2 jobs.

On Writing Review

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King

The prefect blend of instructional and autobiographical. This book gave great insight into the life and writing process of Stephen King.

Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare

There is a reason as to why Cassandra Clare is a New York Times Best Seller and this book is evidence of that. Warning to all readers Clare ends the book on a heartbreaking cliffhanger… again.

The Witcher Johnathon Nicolaou Library

The Witcher: Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski

I don’t think I’ve been this glad to finish a book in a very long time… and it was all for the wrong reasons. I think The Witcher: Blood of Elves is probably the most disappointing book I’ve read to date.
