2022 Reading List

2022 started off slow because I did end up deciding to do that re-read of Wheel of Time in order to produce an article series about both the books and the Amazon show‘s season 1, but then picked up in large part to this being the year of reading Kindle Unlimitedly, as evidenced by the multiple long series in there. I’m also trying out some better formatting given that this is a ranked list and not a chronological one, because I found myself really not able to decide if book 6 of a series was better or worse than book 4, and because of how Kindle Unlimited is structured, I was reading the whole series basically as one book anyway. So the series will just be placed as a whole, compared to the other series and single novels. There’s probably an article in here somewhere about how this is the second year in a row (and 2023 seems likely to end up the same) that despite the majority of what I’m reading being Kindle Unlimited self-published stuff, nothing from there has yet to top the year list, and in fact it mostly seems to go “all the traditionally published books, then all the KU self-pub stuff” which isn’t…shocking per se? But I wonder if there are reasons why beyond “self-pub bad, tradpub good” which is not a thing I agree with.

In any event, there’s the list for 2022, better late than never. I managed more books overall that I expected both in general and with the WoT re-read, and 2023 is off to a fast start as well. Now if I can just also actually write reviews!
