TBR 22 IN '22 CHALLENGE
My Wrap Up Post
Sign up for the TBR 23 in '23 Challenge here!
The TBR 22 in '22 Challenge was simple -- read 22 books off your TBR shelf in 2022. You could pick them ahead of time, like I did, pick them as you went, or any combination you like. Or pick ahead of time and then switch! The only "rule" is that the 22 books had to be books you owned before January 1, 2022.
Here is the list of the 22 book I read for the challenge, in alphabetical order by author, not the order in which I read them:
- These Ruins are Inhabited by Margaret Beadle, a memoir by an American living in England in the 1950s
- Dangling Man by Saul Bellow, on my Classics Club list
- Atlantic High by William F. Buckley, Jr., the second of his four sailing memoirs. I read the first one last year and planned to read them all but didn't get to them. 2022 will be the year I finally do.
- Racing through Paradise by William F. Buckley, Jr., the third of the four
- Windfall by William F. Buckley, Jr., the last one
- The Master and the Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakow, on my Classics Club list
- The Waterfall by Margaret Drabble, on my Classics Club list
- A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, which won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award
- Rat Race by Dick Francis, on my Classics Club list
- Bunny Mellon: The Life of an American Style Legend by Meryl Gordon
- French Women Don't get Fat by Mireille Guiliano
- The Wall by John Hersey, on my Classics Club list
- The Bostonians by Henry James, on my Classics Club list
- A Time to Build: From Family and Community to Congress and the Campus, How Recommitting to Our Institutions Can Revive the American Dream by Yuval Levin
- When She was Good by Philip Roth, on my Classics Club list
- The Prague Orgy by Philip Roth
- The Masters by C. P. Snow is the fourth book in his Strangers and Brothers series, which I started years ago and want to finish. This one is on my Classics Club list because it won the James Tait Black Prize in 1954.
- If Morning Ever Comes by Anne Tyler, on my Classics Club list
- Anglo-Saxon Attitudes by Angus Wilson, a campus novel on my Classics Club list
