Six in Six: 2022
I first heard about Six in Six over on Jessica’s blog (The Bookworm Chronicles). I thought it sounded like fun so I decided to join in.
Six in Six is hosted by Jo (The Book Jotter). She’s been doing this since 2012, making this year the 10th anniversary of her first post. Six in Six is about sharing the books we’ve read during the first half of the year, between January and June. In fact, we share 6 books in 6 categories. I’ve decided on the following categories:
- six books I’ve enjoyed the most,
- six new authors I’ve discovered in 2022,
- six favorite places to read,
- six covers I love,
- six physical books I’ve read, and
- six books set in a country other than the US.
As I mentioned in my 2022 Reading Goals Check-In post, I read 23 books by the end of June. My ratings distribution is:
- 3 books with
- 2 books with
- 10 books with
- 5 books with
- 3 books with
I’ll mostly be sharing books with at least a four-star rating in this post. You can click each of the covers to go to my review if you’re interested in reading it.

What about you? What are some books, authors, or places that would be on your lists?
I love this meme – and reading your answers! I’m surprised your book cover love shows a blue theme – clearly there weren’t enough covers with purple on!
Nope. I haven’t read many books with a purple cover this year. From what I’ve been able to tell, purple’s one of the colors used leased for covers. 🙁
I did this meme a couple of years ago but forgot about it this year! I may try to write one, though I’ve been trying hard to build my schedule ahead. We’ll see.
I like Fredrik Backman but he seems to publish faster than I can keep up!
My book locations so far this year are heavily tilted to the US with a few western European countries, but as I looked earlier in the year, I did realize that I’ve ventured out to Vietnam and Syria. That’s still something I should work on in the second half of the year.
I’ll look out for your post. 😀 I often read books that take place in the US as well. I think most of my books are set somewhere in the US. I should’ve included EVERY SUMMER AFTER in my list because it’s set in Canada, but I finished it the day before the end of the month and I’d already written this post. Oh well.
I read many mysteries and my literary books for BC and most of them have boring covers. I don’t want to shock you but possibly because of that, I rarely even look at covers. I just dive right in to the book. 🙂
I don’t always look at the covers either. But, I do often decide to read a book or put it on my TBR if I like the cover. 😀 I like pretty things. LOL.
Wow, well done! I need to read a Jenny Lawson book. I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about her.
Thanks, Wendy! 😀 It was really fun to do this post. If you do read one of Jenny Lawson’s books, I hope you enjoy it!
Thank you very much for joining in and spreading the word too. Hope to see you next year.
You’re welcome, Jo! 😀 I had a lot of fun with it.
So glad you took part this year and that you also chose to share your favourite places to read. Here’s to another good, if not better, six months of reading! 😊
I’m glad I participated this year too. 😀 Thanks for talking about it on your blog.
