My 10 Favorite Reads in 2022


It’s that time of the year again where we showcase our top 10 favorite reads! With that, I back tracked and checked my Goodreads 2022 shelf to collate my favorites. I have to admit that I haven’t had a lot of 5-star reads, so it wasn’t that hard for me to make this list. For those of you who have been following my blog for quite some time now, you might have read in my previous posts that I started off this reading year a bit slow given that the first quarter of 2022 was quite busy for me with the wedding and all that, but as soon as I settled in my new home, I was able to constantly read again. It was one heck of a year with all the adjustments, meeting new virtual friends, finding my people, and finally falling into the rabbit hole of the thriller and horror genre — this isn’t a surprise as I’ve anticipated it happening in the past couple of years and finding the right book club helped me understand and discover new and old authors from this genre.

Anyway, so without further ado, here are the top 10 books that I really enjoyed reading this year:

Book List: Books to Get You Out of a Slump


One of the advices that I give whenever someone asks me what I usually do to get out of a reading slump is reading your favorite books because it always works for me. Another technique that works for me is reading short books, romance books, and thrillers as these types of books are very easy to read and get through. So without further ado, here are some of the books that helped me get out of a reading slump:

The Anti-TBR Tag (1)

Hi! Hello! I came across this tag on Peruse Project on booktube and it seemed really fun and interesting. It’s a tag originally created by Nicole & Her Books, also on booktube. I kind of contemplated if I really want to do this because it’s quite controversial to talk about popular books in this manner, but hey, as readers, we all have different reading styles and tastes, so let’s not judge each other based on the books that interests us and the books that we dislike. So without further ado, let’s dive right into the questions:

2022 Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hi, everyone! I’m doing the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag a little bit late this year because I’ve been busy with personal stuff in the past three weeks or so. So this tag was created in 2016 by Ely and Chami on BookTube and it has been an ongoing tag around the book community to help bookish people wrap up the first half of their reading year. I have to admit that I haven’t been religiously doing this throughout the years, but here I am this year!

As you all know, I got married this year which is why, at the start of the year, I decided to just set 12 books for my Goodreads reading challenge. I knew for a fact that I wouldn’t have a lot of reading time this year given that I have a lot of adjusting to do. But as of writing, I’ve already completed my goal of 12 books, so I decided to adjust it to 20 books! It’s not much compared to others’ 50+ books a year, but I’m happy that I got past my initial goal early on. Continue reading

Books #Bookstagram Made Me Buy


Bookstagram has been one of my favorite book communities in the past couple of years. It’s been alive for quite some time now, but I believe that it regained its peak during the pandemic. The book community as a whole is one of the most beloved community in the web because the people are just so kind and genuine, especially when talking about their favorite books.

With that said, I would like to dedicate a blogpost the the bookstagram community and share with you the titles that I’ve bought because of it. You may also check Fully Booked Online to find you next great read!

Five-Star Predictions


I don’t think I’ve ever done one this kind of list before, so I decided to do one. As you all know, I have a ton of books on my physical TBR and though I have been slowly putting a dent on it, I have also been adding new titles every once in a while. Well, that’s quite the life of most bookworms, wouldn’t you agree so? Haha

So I took the time to stare at my bookcase and skimmed through the titles that I think (and badly hoping) would be a 5 star read for me. I chose these five books because I honestly have high expectations for them given that there have been quite some hype for them around the book community.
