Reading is like breathing for me. I need it to survive and some years are better than others. 2022 was quite a year for me. My husband spent nearly half of it serving abroad with the military leaving me to solo parent our four boys. I accomplished more this year than I could have hoped given my circumstances, including finishing the novel I’ve been writing, and bringing it to the point where I am ready for advanced readers to tell me what they think!
If you have any suggestions or reading recommendations for 2023, I’d be happy to hear them!
Oh! A shout-out to Leigh Bardugo and Sarah J. Maas for making up most of my list this year!
Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2023!

I am an aspiring author, military wife, and mother of four boys. In my free time, I am a voracious reader and lover of large cups of tea. While I enjoy reading everything, my favorite genre is fantasy. One of my hobbies is reading and reviewing books on various online platforms. I have dabbled in short stories and writing poetry, publishing a small book of my poems in 2022, with an independent publisher. I enjoy keeping the world up-to-date on her writing, reading, and random thoughts on my blog.I am also currently writing my first novel.
