Kim’s Top 10 of 2022

We’ve taken some time off from writing reviews the past few weeks, but they will be back at the beginning of the year! For today we have Kim’s Top 10 reads for 2022 and Jessica’s will be featured tomorrow!

**As always, Kim’s Top 10 is not ranked as she refuses to rank them. She did not write reviews for everything, so those can not be linked. Some are series put together! Shocking news: She actually did pick an ultimate favorite for 2022! What will be it? Check out her list below…


The Prime Mating Agency Series by Regine Abel: The best romance series I’ve read in quite a while!

The Slob Series by Aron Beauregard: It just stuck in my head! The intensity is off the charts!

My review for The Slob is here.
My review for Son of The Slob is here.


The Summoning by Dr. Stuart Knott, Harriett Everend and Jessica Huntley: A unique story that had me from page 1!

My review for The Summoning is here.


Gleanings by Neal Shusterman: An amazing anthology that just adds to the series! I got Jessica this one for Christmas!


Stolen Tongues by Felix Blackwell: I felt like I’d never read the story and was pretty freaked out! And Jessica wants to read this one too!

My review for Stolen Tongues is here.


The Modern Prometheus by Jayson Robert Ducharme: Best cover of the year and an immersive and emotional story!

My review for The Modern Prometheus is here.


Do You Dream of Terra-Two? by Temi Oh: An interesting take on space travel and sci-fi!

My review for Do You Dream of Terra-Two? is here.

**Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think?  Are any of these on your TBR? Are you curious about any but just not sure about reading?? -Kim (KSF)

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I hope you and your loved ones are having a great holiday weekend! I am in the middle of a 4 day weekend while a huge cold front has come through! Here in my part of Georgia it got down to 9 degrees yesterday morning! Needless to say, it makes it hard to do most anything right now! Our central heat does not work, so we are relying on space heaters and tons of blankets.  The space heaters can only do so much and inside the house is maybe 50 degrees.  The cats just look at us like,’ Why is is so cold?!?!?!?”  We are doing what we can!

With the new year upcoming, we will be getting back to writing reviews! Both Kim and I have at least 3 to write with myself having two more to add to the mix soon!

If you haven’t been following the Facebook page or Jessica’s Instagram (in the stories) you have been missing out. I have been doing almost daily showings of Once Upon a Book Club’s 12 Days of Book-mas: It is a book of 12 short stories and there is a gift that corresponds to the particular story! I have enjoyed doing it and there are still a few days to go!

If there end up being no reviews for this week, that’s ok! Because as I said they WILL be back soon! And we will still have both Kim and I’s Top 10 of 2022!





Please give us a follow if you haven’t yet! You don’t know what you are missing out of!
