Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
This week, our topic is Most Anticipated Books Releasing In the First Half of 2022 but most of them are already in my list Books I Hope Santa Brings.
So, I needed to twist this. Since we are at the beginning of a year and everyone talks about new beginnings, I thought about books that tell us about people's new lives in another country. They are all fantastic books.
