2022 Recap: April-June

2022 Is coming to an end which means that many people start wrapping the year up by looking back on the events of this past year. Yearly, we bookworms read many books, so do I. In this series I’ll be recapping 2022.

This week: the second quarter of the year.


April was the month of the final renovations of my rental home. Everything got the finishing touch so I was able to move in in May. This month was also the first time I could go to a book event again after 2 years of Covid restrictions. This means my latest event was 3 years ago and Honestly I felt a little old amongst the new generation of YA readers. Unfortunateley, this was also the month the Dutch book blogosphere suddenly lost one of its beloved members way too young.

  • Number of books finished: 19
  • Number of books DNF’ed: 1, The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake
  • Number of hauled books: 11
  • Number of these new books read in 2022: 7
  • 5-star reads: 0
  • Favorite book: On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong
  • Books that disappointed me: Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare and This Woven Kingdom by Tahereh Mafi


This month I actually moved out and into my own home. I had to quickly buy seats for on the balcony as spring really sprung and we even got a glimpse of summer. Inside, I hadn’t a comfortable couch at the time, so this was great.

  • Number of books finished: 12
  • Number of books DNF’ed: 1, Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor (for the second time actually but now in the Dutch translation)
  • Number of hauled books: 11
  • Number of these new books read in 2022: 5
  • 5-star reads: 0
  • Favorite book: An originally German historical fiction which hasn’t been translated into English
  • Books that disappointed me: She Gets The Girl by Rachael Lippincott and Alysson Derrick


The final month for this week’s wrap up. In this month fall was back, but we also got a glimpse of the heatwaves that would be coming over us in the upcoming months. My couch finally arrived and I had a housewarming weekend since I had to split friends and family up. I managed to read a lot still, but a decreasing number is already being seen.

As I’m writing this recap, I realise I’ve read more than I’d initially thought. However, I can already notice the numbers are decreasing. On the other side, I’ve hauled many books. But isn’t that the biggest problem of us book lovers?

Next week, it’s time to look into summer, the months July untill September. Want to read more?
