Last year’s post was a bit more detailed because I was looking at my “five star predictions” – I forgot to do that one for 2022 so this is mostly through other posts instead.
TTTs always have some “most anticipated” book prompts and my seasonal TBRs usually include them for each season of new releases. I’m also going to include books from my “jazzed up for this” shelf on Goodreads – the books I’m most excited about land on there. I did cull these a little bit since it got out of hand and many of them weren’t truly my most anticipated.
37 books on my most anticipated lists for 2022
Read 15 books (41%) | Didn’t read 22 books (59%)
Ratings of books read:
5 stars = 3 books = 20%
4.5 stars = 2 books = 13%
4 stars = 7 books = 47%
3.5 stars = 1 book = 7%
3 stars = 1 book = 7%
DNF = 1 book = 6%
Books I Managed to Read
Overall, a pretty good job here! I didn’t read as many books as I thought I would from this fake most-anticipated list, but it does have a lot to do with overall number of books read. I only read 75 books in 2022 again. In any case, here’s how the breakdown of ratings worked:
Under 4 Stars
Above in order: 3.5 stars – 3 stars – DNF
Books I Didn’t Get to
I went through and deleted some of the ones below because I didn’t even recognize them – at one point I was excited for them (and probably still would be if I reread the synopses!) but wanted to only include books here I remembered as being “oh shit I can’t wait to read that.”
I just finished Pretty Dead Queens and really enjoyed it!! The Beach Trap is also on my books I didn’t get to in 2022 list- love the premise of that one and I’m hoping to get to it in spring/summer!
Oh excellent! I think I even bought the audiobook for BEACH TRAP so I definitely hope to have it on my summer TBR
