Year 2022: Six in six

Some time last year, I ran into this meme by Jo at The Book Jotter.
A fun way to look at the books you have read during the first 6 months of the year.
She has a huge bunch of prompts, see here her 2022 edition.

I ended up keeping, guess what, 6 categories. With 6 books in each, as requested.
And of course, I’m posting this on July 6th.
