Read What I Own Challenge 2022 – Quarter 1 Update

You may not remember but, back in January, I set myself a challenge to read 26 of the 52 unread books that were on my shelves at the time. Anyways, it’s been three months so I’m here with a quarterly update about the books I’ve read and the books I’ve bought.

I’ve put an asterisk (*) next to the books that I’d highly recommend but I haven’t linked to my reviews or anything like that.


Books I’ve Read

January
  • Olivia by Dorothy Strachey
  • Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk*
  • Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers*
  • The Golem and the Djinni by Helene Wecker*
  • About Love and Other Stories by Anton Chekov
  • White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi
  • Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb*
February
  • The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin
  • Corinne, or Italy by Madame de Staël
March
  • The Life of Charlotte Bronte by Elizabeth Gaskell*
  • Murder is Easy by Agatha Christie*

Total: 11 books

Books I’ve Bought

  • A Canticle For Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr* [Note: I have already read this and I would highly recommend it!]
  • The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yōko Ogawa
  • Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
  • Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro

Total: 4 books

I promised myself that I’d buy one book for every three that I read and I almost kept that promise. I just couldn’t resist buying Klara and the Sun when the paperback was released! I won’t buy another book until I’ve read another four.
