Cheers to a New Year: My 2022 in Review

2022 was the year I dived into a black hole called the Psy-Changeling series. I had immensely loved Nalini Singh's contemporary romance books, so when my romance sisters Lisa and Katie kept pushing for me to start this paranormal romance series, it was due time. Side-eyeing myself for not starting this series sooner! It seems paranormal romance is kinda my jam because I binged Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews with the same fervor the year prior. I absolutely LOVED the world of Psy-Changeling *happy tears*. You bet I'll be diving into the "second arc" this year.

I was on a major board game kick last year after binging a lot of The Dice Tower videos. Tabletop games have been an on-and-off-again hobby of mine and I had made board game nights a resolution for 2021. They were a hit with my small but close circle of friends! As an introvert, these games nights became my favourite social event throughout the year heheh. I focused a lot of my energy on self-care and familial relationships. Two highlights of 2022 were seeing &Juliet musical and SEVENTEEN live in concert~ I'm focusing on travelling this year but I hope that I will also get a chance to attend more artisan markets and hobby conventions. May 2023 be kind to us all!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved With Romance and School/Education

- - - Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, created at The Broke and The Bookish but now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl, where a new topic is given for a top ten book-related list - - -

I meant to post this yesterday but of course my plan fell through. Let's pretend it's still Tuesday anyway! This week's prompt was "School Freebie" in honor of school starting up soon. We're to come up with a topic that somehow ties to school/education. Even though I've graduated and left academia almost two years ago, I still get very excited around this time because of school supplies and stationery! I was very tempted to show you my emotional support stack of untouched notebooks. Instead I've decided to split my list into two parts with the overarching theme being romance (of course). All of the books on this list are ones that I have read and enjoyed~

Now, Tressa at Wishful Endings hosts Can't Wait Wednesday that is based off of WoW to continue the fun!

I am so far behind the Roshani Chokshi bandwagon but I am determined to catch up. I picked up book one back in 2016 when it first streaked across my book socials. Then being the collector that I am, of course I picked up book two despite having not read the first book yet. I mean, would you LOOK at these covers? Gorgeous! Stunning! *insert other synonyms of Beautiful* I had a terrible habit of getting books of a series without knowing whether I would like it or not. I have since then (6 hard years later) gained better control. In the case of The Star-Touched Queen duology, what you see is exactly what you get! Magic in words and imagery. I was swept away by the poetic narrative and mystical setting from the first few chapters.
