Read my 56:

Not really an #Instagram56 post, but the cocktail is one I made from the book.

Q:  In 2022, how many books did you read?
A: 55. And I am quite okay with that. 

**This is a weekly meme. 


  1. Well? How was the chocolate martini? I don't often drink cocktails so I'm not sure I would appreciate the book.

    Happy New Year!
    My Friday post

    1. I really enjoyed the cocktail though it was strong... I decided to post with New Years Eve being tomorrow and lots of people drink. Happy New Year!!

  2. Congrats to Mark! The book sounds like fun. Happy New Year!

  3. Thanks so much for the giveaway and the prize!

    55 is a good total of books for the year.

  4. Any number of books read during a year is excellent - we all have different reading styles and pace and time. And this books sounds totally fun! We've started drinking more cocktails over recent years instead of just beer or wine and it's a nice change.

  5. Looks like a delicious book - I'm going to see if I can find it! A bookish toast to the New Year!

  6. Have a Happy New Year, Freda! Fifty-five is a lot of books to read in a year! Hopefully most, if not all, were enjoyable reads.

  7. Looks like a properly festive book for this week! Cheers!

    Thanks for adding my link. Have a happy New Year!
