Top 2022 #BookReviews (and #Goodreads rundown)

What a great start to the day! I had no idea Jacqui Murray’s review of Innerscape was so popular. -dance-

I love reading. I prefer to do that than watch TV, go to the gym, floss my teeth, pay bills, or wash the laundry. I review a lot of the books I read, usually received from NetGalley, the library, Kindle Unlimited, or an Indie efriend, but I also buy quite a few. I collect my writing book reviews here and my education ones here. When I read, I choose thrillers, historical fiction, education (for my other passion), and then anything else.

Here are the top ten reviews–ranked by you–for 2022 (in alphabetic order):

About acflory

I am the kind of person who always has to know why things are the way they are so my interests range from genetics and biology to politics and what makes people tick. For fun I play online mmorpgs, read, listen to a music, dance when I get the chance and landscape my rather large block. Work is writing. When a story I am working on is going well I'm on cloud nine. On bad days I go out and dig big holes... View all posts by acflory

    One good review can have you floating on air for days; as I keep saying, you just need to find the right people and they will recommend.

    Hope this finds you more of the readers who are out there, waiting for your kind of SF. And unsatisfied with what they are getting instead.

      Morning, Alicia, and yes, I’ll be floating for the rest of today, that’s for sure. 😀

          The only way I can imagine it becoming blase is if I were to become a billion-dollar-selling-author. -cough- We both know exactly how likely that is. 😀

            You rarely do better than your wildest expectations – I know what MINE are, do you know what YOURS are? Keep them private – they’re like wishes on a birthday candle.

            Aaahh…you don’t believe in random chance? I’m a bit of a control freak because I’ve never seen myself as ‘lucky’. Interesting.

            Random chance is nice, but it is EXTRA. You have to be ready to glom onto it (it’s called opportunity knocking) – when it comes; which is the same as EXPECTING it.

            What would you do if someone wanted to make a movie of one of your books – tomorrow? Have you at least thought it through?

            You’re invited to a book club meeting – one of the members loves your book, connects you with an influencer, and they have a spot on their newsletter if you can get them a photo, a bio, a list of your favourite scenes with an excerpt of your favourite dialogue exchange from each and a quick note why you love it – by Tuesday.

            lmao – I’d fail at all of it! Although I probably would /try/ to hit that Tuesday deadline.

            Glad to provide some entertainment.

            But I’M ready. At least through the thought-through part. And expecting it, sooner or later.

            The alternative is too depressing – so I don’t bother with it. Chronic illness is depressing enough – and I keep bolstering the spirits of others in the same conditions, because, with Long Covid research, there is at least a chance where there wasn’t one for decades.

            Decades I lived through. Decades I homeschooled kids through, and have written through. I guess I don’t know what I’d do with myself without a goal, and this one I’ve wrangled better in some ways than I would have guessed.

            We’ll see.

            I’ve always been self-motivated as well, but with the writing…I don’t know. When I was literally just writing for myself and never, ever mentioned it to anyone else, writing was a release. But now that I have some expectations, not having them met does depress me.
            Anyway, I’ve just turned 70 and had a wonderful day despite bloody covid! So no complaints. 😀
