6️⃣ Six in Six | My 2022 Edition

Six in Six BannerHello my fellow bookworms, today, I am sharing with you my post for Jo of The Book Jotter‘s Six in Six – 2022 Edition meme, which I have found to be a great way to reflect back on our reading at the midway point of the year. Yes, we are halfway through 2022 already! 😅

Jo started this meme back in 2017 and I have taken part every single year since! To join in all you have to do is share your post, anytime in July, of your six books in six different categories from the last six months.

So without further ado, lets delve into my six different books, authors or places, in six different categories:

Six Favourite Places to Read

Snuggled up in a blanket on cold days.
In bed on a dark evening or sunny weekend morning.
Lay out on my lawn on a warm day.
Soaking in a hot bubble bath.
In the shade of a tree on my lunch break in summer.
By a pool or lake on my holidays.

  1. Thank you for joining in again and also sharing all about it too. You have reminded me of all the authors I havent read in a while and now want to!

    1. It was great fun to take apart again this year and I love to share and get more people to take part. Thank you for hosting again and I hope you are able to read some of those authors I have reminded you of! 😊

  2. I love this. I’m going to post mine tomorrow. 😀 I also love to read in the bathtub. It’s one of my favorite things in the world. 😀

  3. I’m not sure I could come up with six places I like to read! There are two places I listen to audio books and two places I actually “read” books!

    I added Picnic at Hanging Rock to my wishlist recently. I’ve heard so much about it!

    1. Aw bless you, Kelly! I don’t think you need to worry if you only have two favourite places to read, as long as you have those two that’s all that matters. I hope we are both able to get our hands on copies of Picnic at Hanging Rock to read soon! 🤞🙂

  4. Good stuff here–and, imho, it is ALWAYS time to read another Du Maurier. lol Picnic at Hanging Rock is a possibility for me November for Aussie Lit Month, if I decide to do it.

    1. Glad to hear you enjoyed this post and my choices. I have to wholeheartedly agree it is ALWAYS time for more du Maurier! 😁 I hope you will enjoy Picnic at Hanging Rock if you decide to read as part of Aussie Lit Month. 🤞🙂

  5. I love the categories you’ve chosen this year, particularly your six favourite places to read, which all sound lovely! Of the six books you want to read next, I enjoyed Katharine Parr, The Vanished Days and The Black Tulip, so I think you have a lot to look forward to there. My Six in Six post should be up at the weekend!

    1. Thank you, Helen – I am so pleased you enjoyed my chosen categories this year. I must admit I had to pick some very different, creative ones this year, as I haven’t finished many books, so far this year! 😅 I really look forward to seeing your post and categories. 😊

  6. Picnic at Hanging Rock is a book that has been on my TBR for a while, that is definitely on my wish list too!

    1. Hi Soph 👋 Thank you for stopping by and commenting. It is always nice to hear from a new face and I hope we’ll both be able to get our hands on a copy of Picnic at Hanging Rock soon! 🤞😊

  7. That’s a fun way to look back at the year so far. I think I’d score well on new to me authors but fall down in reading more by them in the following year.

    1. Thank you, Karen – This really is a great, fun way to look back at your reading. I also fall down on reading more new-to-me authors in the following year, too! 😊
