25., 26., 27. - Falling Skies by Harley Tate - another post apocalyptic dystopian tale from one of my favorite authors. The family first confronts a meteor, then a tyrannical military compound and then a cult of religious fanatics. What is coming in book 4??????

I have some catching up to do since this is my first post in this year's challenge. My goal for 2022 is 52 and I'm currently at 19.

1/52 Dear Santa by Debbie Macomber
2/52 The Secret Wife by Gill Paul
3/52 The Lieutenant's Nurse by Sara Ackerman
4/52 Island of Sweet Pies and Soldiers by Sara Ackerman
5/52 The Riviera House by Natasha Lester
6/52 The Poppy Wife: A Novel of the Great War by Caroline Scott
7/52 The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser and the Wardrobe by Angela Kelly
8/52 The London House by Katherine Reay
9/52 Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher
10/52 The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles
11/52 The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel
12/52 The War Nurse by Tracey Enerson Wood
13/52 The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor
14/52 Last Christmas in Paris: A Novel of World War I by Hazel Gaynor
15/52 The Exiles by Christina Baker Kline
16/52 The Stolen Lady b y Laura Morelli
17/52 The Point of Light by John Ellsworth
18/52 The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post by Allison Pataki
19/52 The Velvet Hours by Alyson Richman

Lots of good titles here if you like the World War I/World War II genre. The only fail so far was #17 The Point of Light, terrible writing, I just couldn't wait for it to end.

I'm currently on a re-read from 2020 that I picked up at the library not realizing that I'd read it before. My reading time is limited to my lunch hour and on the bus ride home so I need to pick some thinner books if I'm going to meet my goal! Some of this year's selections so far have been pretty thick books.
