2022 Favorite Books: Month by Month
I've pulled together my favorite books read in 2022. Most months I couldn't choose just one, so I listed all my faves and I'm interested to see if any of these also made your list. Click link to see my review.
This was a very good reading month to start 2022! I read 16 books and these 3 were by far my faves.
The Reading List Billy Summers Lightning Strike
I read 10 books in February and had 1 DNF with these two being the stand out reads.
In March I read 11 books and had 2 DNF attempts.
The House in the Cerulean Sea A Trick of the Light
I read 12 books in April.
Of the 9 books I read in May, I only had one favorite.
I read 10 books and had 1 DNF in June with one book a clear favorite.
I usually read a little more in the summer for some reason; I read 13 books in July.
The Passengers Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow
Of the 15 books read in August, I have 2 favorites.
The Boy From the Woods A Better Man
In September I read 14 books and had 1 DNF.
Spells for Forgetting The Spear Cuts Through Water
I read 12 books and had 2 DNF books in October.
Thief River Falls Hester This Tender Land
I read 15 books in November with 2 taking the prize for fave reads.
Remarkably Bright Creatures Daisy Darker
A busy month in December means I only read 9 books but these 3 were winners.
Tuyo Fairy Tale Lessons in Chemistry
There are some really great books represented in this list - some very hyped and popular all over the internet, and some very quiet but equally good reads. I am surprised to see that I read three Stephen King books this year after having not read anything by him in quite a few years. And they were all really good and very different from each other.
If I had to pick favorites of the year, I have two. The Spear Cuts Through Water is such an unusual and amazing book, I'd love for it to have a wider audience. The Island of Missing Trees is maybe more main stream and certainly easier to read and enjoy and I will (and do) recommend it to everyone.
I'm so eager to start perusing the various end of year BEST lists - I'm sure my TBR will explode once again, but I don't want to miss a potential great book! Did any of these make your 'best of' list?
