TBRs

12 in 12 Challenge: 2022!

January 4, 2022

I know I’ve been posting a lot of 2022 TBRs and goals lately, but this is the last one, I swear:

I’m doing the “12 in 12” challenge!

You might have seen this around on social media lately, plus I know some folks did it in past years as well, but essentially the goal is to have 12 friends each recommend you a book to read in the coming year. I know a lot of people are going to read one book per month, but I’m just going to work through the list at my own pace throughout the year. I was really lucky and all 12 of the people I asked for recommendations were willing to pick out a book for me! I hand-picked a dozen people who I knew would either hand-pick something based on my interests, or whose tastes are similar to mine, so I have a VERY good feeling about this selection!

 

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to this list! β™₯

      Thank you! I’m so excited for all of them, especially those two if you loved them so much!

    Good luck with your TBR, Destiny! πŸ’• I 100% second Nevermoor, it’s SO good! I decided to read it on a whim and it has since become one of my all-time favorites πŸ₯° I’m hoping to read books 2 + 3 this year!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 7, 2022 at 3:53 pm

      Thank you! I think Nevermoor is the one that I’ve had the most people say they second the recommendation for, which has me sooo excited to read it, especially because it’s been ages since I picked up a MG fantasy book. That makes me so happy that it’s an all time fave for you!

    Good luck with your TBR! I’ve heard lovely things about I Hear the Sunspot!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 7, 2022 at 3:54 pm

      Thank you! Sunspot looks so good – I have it checked out from the library and I’m actually planning on reading it today!

    I’m like completely out of the loop on all things books / releases so the only one I know is Empire of the Vampire. I’ve been reading that one! For.. a long while actually. It’s soooo slow, but so good too. I’m savouring it – that’s my excuse. [Honestly, I’ve not been in the mood to hold a book that big and that’s simply why I keep picking up other books which is the most stupid excuse ever but hey, it’s life.]

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 7, 2022 at 4:02 pm

      LOL for what it’s worth, I can 100% relate to “this book is too big/heavy and I don’t feel like dealing with it”! πŸ˜‚ I’m glad you’ve been enjoying it, though!

  • Reply Laura Beth January 8, 2022 at 12:19 pm

    Fantastic challenge! I’ve looked up several of these books – I’m especially intrigued by I Hear The Sunspot.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 14, 2022 at 8:07 pm

      Thank you! I read I Hear the Sunspot a couple of days ago and really enjoyed it. I definitely recommend it!

  • Reply Sarah January 13, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    i’m excited to see your thoughts on all of these but obviously STOKED to see what you think of Full Throttle!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 14, 2022 at 8:22 pm

      Thank you for the recommendation!! I haven’t picked up anything of Joe’s in waaaay too long, so I’m excited 😊

  • Reply Kal @ Reader Voracious January 14, 2022 at 1:59 pm

    I hope you enjoy these books, Destiny. I LOVED A Dowry of Blood and Pestilence is… well, I hate to love it but there we are haha.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 14, 2022 at 8:22 pm

      HAHA, “I hate to love it but there we are” – I love this. β™₯ Thank you, Kal! I’m very excited to read all of them!
