It was in grad school that I developed the need, then the love for reading (although now thanks to Audible, listening to books as well).
Most all of them were good to great reads.
A couple I didn’t complete because I’ve finally gotten to the point where when I get to the point that the author is simply repeating themselves to reiterate the point, I close the book.
I’ve marked my favorites from 2022 with asterisks.
And as you can tell in the Fiction list, I had some catching up to do in one series.
