A propos de ma bibliothèque

Predominantly fiction with some non-fiction thrown in. This library represents books I have finished reading as of the start of 2008, as well as books I own that are part of my ever growing TBR pile. With the unveiling of Collections, I have added the more memorable books read and owned prior to 2008. Books discarded unfinished will now comprise the Abandoned collection of my library, to remind me of the clunkers as well.

2022 READING

JANUARY (focus - Books by Canadian Indigenous Authors):

1. Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese () Highly Recommended!

2. Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice () An okay dystopian/apocalyptic story.

3. Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson () A MUST read! So good!

4. The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline () Solid dystopian story!

5. One for the Money by Janet Evanovich () Fun first book in series.

 FEBRUARY:

6. Shadow of the Serpent by David Ashton () Solid atmospheric murder mystery - based on the BBC Radio 4 series - set in 1880's Edinburgh, Scotland.

7. Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich () Fun and suspenseful.

8. Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich () Another fun-filled mystery romp.

9. Fall From Grace by David Ashton () A complex, multi-layered mystery. A tad long-winded but still good.

10. Four to Score by Janet Evanovich () Another fun - and volatile - romp through New Jersey.

MARCH:

11. the Maid by Nita Prose () Delightful mystery, if a bit tedious in places but I do love it when an author can surprise me.

12. High Five by Janet Evanovich () So Good! Such Fun! Great escapism as Stephanie surrounds herself with men, damages cars and finds herself is very sticky situations.

13. The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren () Geeky Chicklit romance fun. Good for the first half but got a bit stale for me as the story carried on.

14. A Trick of the Light by David Ashton () Excellent multi-layered mystery - with a bonus Arthur Conan Dolye character - and enough twists and turns to keep my attention.

APRIL:

15. Hot Six by Janet Evanovich () Best in the series so far! Such fun as Stephanie finds herself in more tricky situations (and entanglements).

16. Seven Up by Janet Evanovich () More fun escapism with another teaser ending.

17. Nor Will He Sleep by David Ashton () Best book in the series. Sadly, also the last. Time to move on to the spin off books.

18. Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich () More escapism. Never gets boring (or predictable!)

19. To the Nines by Janet Evanovich () Great blend of humour and suspense. Evanovich delivers!

20. Ten Big Ones by Janet Evanovich () Continuing to enjoy Stephanie's crazy, crazy world!

21. "Indian" in the Cabinet by Jody Wilson-Raybould () A candid glimpse into Canadian federal politics. Left me with a lot to ponder.

22. Eleven On Top by Janet Evanovich () One of the better books in the series so far. Looking forward to more adventures with Stephanie.

MAY:

23. Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich () Excellent suspenseful fun!

24. Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich () Another fun adventure!

25. Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich ()

26. Mistress of the Just Land by David Ashton () First book in Jean Brash spin-off from the Inspector McLevy Mystery series. Same great setting and characters, but missing the grit of McLevy (who is a bit character this time).

27. Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich () Either I am starting to tire of the series or this is one of the more mundane books in the series.

28. Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich () Not quite 'sizzling' but still a fun read.

29. The Lost Daughter by David Ashton () Second - and last - book in Jean Brash spinoff from the Inspector McLevy Mystery series. More McLevy and love the theatrical King Lear angle to this story.

30. Smokin' Seventeen by Janet Evanovich () Foodies may enjoy the BBQ sauce angle to this story. Otherwise, just another bounty hunter adventure with Stephanie and Co.

31. Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich () Okay, this was a rather dull one, even with the appearance put in by Stephanie's nemisis Joyce. FBI angle made for a nice change of pace.

32. Songs of Love and War by Santa Montefiore () First book in The Deverill Chronicles historical romance series. A bit of a sleeper start to this Anglo-Irish family saga, but by the second half, I was hooked and looking forward to reading book two.

JUNE:

33. Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich () Some great high suspense moments with Stephanie and Co.

34. Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich () Trust Evanovich to bring a new twist to the story, including a giraffe.

35. Daughters of Castle Deverill by Santa Montefiore () A great blend of history, romance and intrigue with settings from Ireland, to London, New York and South Africa to tantalize this reader.

36. Last Secret of the Deverills by Santa Montefiore () I continue to enjoy the setting, the characters and the occasional surprises Montefiore brings to the story. A wonderful beach read series.

37. Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan () First book in trilogy that has been lurking on the TBR pile for too long. Delightful fun, with a nice dash of character introspection thrown in.

38. We Are All Perfectly Fine: A memoir of Love, Medicine and Healing by Dr. Jillian Horton () A page-turning memoir of medical practice burnout and the search for mindfulness. A wonderful read!

A propos de moi
I have been an avid reader most of my life and simply cannot imagine a world without books. I will pick up any book that intrigues me (yes, I can be initially drawn to a book by the artwork on the cover) and I am always open to new authors. I can lose myself for hours browsing the shelves and book piles in a bookstore and have resigned myself to the fact that I will never find the time to read all the books that I want to read.... but that is not going to stop me from trying!
