What my reading looks like for the rest of 2022

Reading is the escape into the unknown, where curious minds reside.

The places that house the wonderous twinklings of a romantic heart dreaming of far greater things than this world can conjure.

It’s a feeling that builds and ignites in your chest as a single thought branch into many ideas and experiences that could be.

It’s the piece of yourself that you always come back to, even in times apart; always here and there, but never too far away.

I was contemplating the whole reason I created this blog (a.wandering.reader). I couldn’t come up with a name for a while until I settled on the idea of wandering through many stories and finding love and family in the pages of many worlds.

I would sum up my personality as an obsessive type when it comes to the pieces of work that I love. I grow attached, and I cherish these characters with a passion that sparks that feeling in my chest. It is longing, happiness, and a fondness for the parts of myself I can find in fiction.

An escape that offers something more. Something we all wish was more than the figments of imagination they are.

My favourite works that ignite that feeling are The Last Hours Trilogy, Six of Crows, Sorcery of Thorns, Six of Crows, and Pride & Prejudice.

For the remainder of 2022, I’ll be reading the books off my unread list. There are roughly 2 months remaining in which I am able to read so let’s run through the books to pick from. Who knows I’ll get through all of them, as we have recalled in the past – it is tough to get through all of one’s TBR.

TBR for the remainder of 2022

  • Classics: The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Little Women
  • Contemporary: All My Rage
  • Historical Fiction: All the Light We Cannot See, Before the Coffee Gets Cold
  • Romance: The Viscount Who Loved Me, An Offer From A Gentleman, Romancing Mister Bridgerton
  • Fantasy & Sci-Fi: This Woven Kingdom, Realm Breaker, A Far Wilder Magic, Dune, Foul Lady Fortune, The Atlas Six

I am currently reading/re-reading a few books for research and to discover new books: Vicious, The Bronzed Beasts, and The Atlas Six. I will get back to those books I have started and not finished (I’m looking at you – Dune, All the Light We Cannot See)

Falling back in love with reading has been a cluster of many emotions, namely reminiscent of past years and finding a sense of hope within stories again.

It certainly calls back to the whole reason I fell in love with writing and hope to publish my own work one day. If so, I hope to spark that same feeling in my readers and fulfill a gap in the universe of stories out there.
