    I’m not familiar with many of these books, but you’ve given me a lot to try in 2022 🙂 I have read the Selection series and Always and Forever Lara Jean, though, and I’m glad to hear that those made your top list for the last year.

    I love all things Ilona Andrews and I used to read everything that had VC Andrews name on it. It looks like you read a lot of great books in 2021!
