List of Reviews by Title – 2022

This is a listing of all my 2022 reviews roughly grouped by type (fiction or non-fiction chapter books) and then alphabetically.  Board books are listed separately.  Please keep in mind that this is NOT a recommendation list, I review many books that I either do not like, or do not recommend to others.  If you are looking to browse reviews by other characteristics, I have a more comprehensive listing of my commonly used tags broken down by category.

In 2022 I reviewed 37 books, all chapter books. I did not review any picture books or board books this years.
