1-16-22: My 7th finished book of 2022! This book was intense! Amber Reynolds is in a coma and desperately trying to wake up. The story is told back and forth between the weeks of right before Christmas to New Years 2016. We see what led up to the coma and eventually how it all happened while learning about Amber‘s sister and her strange upbringing. Being inside the coma with her is wild. So many twists and unexpected situations. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣7️⃣

1-14-22: My 6th finished book of 2022! Wow, this one was so fast paced! Told in present day and 11 years ago, the story goes back and forth between several narrators to tell the story of two missing women and a missing child. I don‘t want to give anything away but I will say it kept me guessing until the very end. There are twists and turns and people who you trust but shouldn‘t. I really enjoyed it!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣6️⃣

1-12-22: My 5th finished book of 2022! Book 6 in the Bridgerton series. I really enjoyed this fun romantic novel.

He is known as a rake, a flirt, but that is only because he occupies himself with woman to get his mind off of Francesca. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣5️⃣

Moments of Being | Virginia Woolf

1-8-22: My 3rd finished book of 2022! I‘ve always loved Virginia Woolf. In Moments of Being there are 5 pieces of autobiographical writing. She discusses her family, the death of her mother, and enjoyable times with her siblings and her many friends in the Bloomsbury group. It was very interesting to have a glimpse into her life. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣3️⃣

The Ballerinas: A Novel | Rachel Kapelke-Dale

1-2-22: My 1st finished book of 2022! Having been a ballerina into my 20s, this book really hit home in some ways. 13 years ago, Delphine left the Paris Opera Ballet as a soloist, to join her choreographer boyfriend in St. Petersburg to be his assistant. Now she is back, as a choreographer at POB, reuniting with her best friends Margaux and Lindsay. The world of ballet is a difficult one and this book depicted it very well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️#️⃣1️⃣📖

Little Tales of Misogyny | Patricia Highsmith

11-16-21: My 116th finished book of 2021! What a weird little book of short stories about different types of women. Women who destroy men and women who destroy themselves.
