January 2022 Goodreads Update, Pt. 2

So, I was feeling really good about myself and the fact that I hadn't gone TBR crazy and added a bunch of stuff to my TBR. Then I actually looked at the list. Oops.

So let's get started.

Yinka where is your husband

Yinka, Where Is Your Huzband by Lizzie Damilola Blackburn - This is a rom com with a fake dating plot. Yinka's family and friends keep pestering her to get married already. She's not interested until she has to go to her sister's wedding. She needs a date fast, and she has a plan to find the right guy.

Bad Girls Never Say Die

Bad Girls Never Say Die by Jennifer Mathieu - This is the one that is the retelling of The Outsiders starring girls. 'Nuff said.

Why She Wrote

Why She Wrote: A Graphic History of the Lives, Inspiration, and Influence Behind the Pens of Classic Women Writers by Lauren Burke and Hannah E. Chapman - Include Jane and Charlotte. 'Nuff said.

Love Hypothesis

The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood - This is apparently the best new romance book on shelves.


The Maid by Nita Prose - This is a locked-room mystery starring a maid who perhaps has autism. She walks in a hotel room to find its occupant murdered. She quickly makes the top of the suspect list and has to find out who really did the deed.

Heartstopper 4

Heartstoppoer Vol. 4 by Alice Oseman - My library finally got this on the catalog so I've requested it and put it on my TBR.

Organizing for the Rest of Us

Organizing for the Rest of Us by Dana K. White - I've decided that organizing the house and reading about it are two unrelated activities.

Best American Science Fiction

The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2021 edited by Veronica Roth - I have to read a Best American _____ Writing book for the Book Riot challenge this year, so I bought this. I'm pretty excited about it, too.

The Reading List

The Reading List by Sara Nisha Adams - This was on my TBR once before and I took it off for some reason, but now I've decided to add it back.

Time Traveler's Guide

The Time Traveler's Guide to Regency Britain by Ian Mortimer - This is the latest in a series of Time Traveler's Guides. If this is good, I'll add some of the others.

Ocean State

Ocean State by Stewart O'Nan - I like Stewart O'Nan. I don't even know what this is about.


Edgewood by Kristen Ciccarelli - What a gorgeous cover! This author is a favorite of one of my dancers.

League of Liars

League of Liars by Astrid Scholte - I liked the last Scholte book I read. And this cover is kind of sick.

Caged Queen

The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli - Speaking of my dancer's favorite author, this is the second book in the series that she is making me read. I read the first one last April. I hope I can remember what happened.

So that's it. Whew!

It's been a heckuva week, so I'm a little brief today. But here are the books I added.
