Sharing my Best Books of 2022. A mix of excellent non-fiction and fiction reads for adults!
I love writing this post every year!
I set a goal to read 200 books in 2022 and (with a final tally of 128 books on Goodreads) I didn't even come close. But, since it's 8 books more than I read in 2021, I'm calling the year a reading success.
This year was especially hard to narrow down my favorites because I read so many great books. Such a good problem to have!
Here are 12 (plus a few bonus favorites) that stood out above the rest. (You can see all my past favorites here.)
Note: The Amazon links in this post are affiliate links.
Finding Me by Viola Davis (I love a good memoir and this one was phenomenal! I listened to the author read it on audiobook and loved every minute of it.)
Hell of a Book by Jason Mott (This is like nothing I've ever read before. I spent half the book confused, and the other half astounded by the incredible humanity Mott captures in this book about being Black.)
Unlikely Animals by Annie Hartnett (A tragi-comic book about a family, the opioid crisis, and it's narrated by a Greek Chorus of Ghosts from the small town cemetery. Quirky and wonderful!)
Dreams Lie Beneath by Rebecca Rossi (This YA Fantasy book about magicians that serve as territory wardens and keep people's dreams from destroying them was pure pleasure to read. I was completely captivated.)
