Books 2022

Jan 3, 2022 · 2 min read

Reading is good for you. It keeps the mind occupied. In 2019, I made a real effort to read as much as I could, and it was a good year. Certainly better than 2020, and 2021 at least. So this year, my aim is to read 20 books, which is 10 more than in 2019, and about 20 more than last year!

I’ll keep this post up to date throughout the year.

Stanley Tucci: Taste Stanley Tucci

I love this guy. His characters in films are always the best. I’ve watched his Instagram videos, and he seemingly has a very dry sense of humour, which appeals to me.

This book is warm, funny, insightful, and at times quite emotional. The recipes are fantastic, and the stories Stanley shares makes them even more enjoyable to make. Cocktails, food, with fun storytelling mixed in. What more could you want?

Drive Daniel Pink

An interesting read. Worth reading if you’re a leader or manager, or you’re interested in learning about what motivates you.

The end of everything Katie Mack

A decent read about how the universe may end. Kind of puts things into perspective. I enjoyed reading this book even if I didn’t entirely understand it all.

Artemis Andy Weir

Couldn’t but this book down. From the author of ‘The Martian’, this is another caper, this time on the moon.

Project Hail Mary Andy Weir

There was something very warm and lovely about this book. I think I’m hooked on Science Fiction now.

The Maidens Alex Michaelides

To borrow a cliche, this was a page turner. Thoroughly enjoyed this and read it all in two days.

The Whistleblower Robert Peston

This was riveting. Although I did keep trying to remember back to 1997!!

The Song of Achilles Madeline Miller

A beautiful love story, with all the usual treachery.

The Silent Patient Alex Michaelides

Enjoyable. I didn’t see the end coming at all.
