My top reads of 2022

I read more in 2022 than any other year, and I think it’s because I took the pressure off of promoting the blog on social media and just focused on getting the work done. I read 41 books (reviewed more like 45) and read a handful of five-star reads I would recommend to almost anyone. While I read more, I did make an effort to read books recommended to me that I wouldn’t normally choose and took advantage of Amazon First choices, which I feel affected my star ratings since not everything was a winner. But I did read more voices from POC writers—which is something I hope to continue next year. Here are my highlights.

My favourite reads of 2022

Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult

On a navy blue background sits a gold and red bird perching on a green mossy rock

I didn’t have much to say about this one because I didn’t want to spoil even a tiny bit of it for anyone, but if you’re looking to feel and to go on a journey of self-discovery, look no further. Read my review here.

Carrie Soto is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid

A gold cover features a woman in a tank top with her head pushed back. Everything is gold except for the title.

If you are a fan of Taylor Jenkins Reid, a tennis lover or even historical fiction (more contemporary, of course), you will love Carrie Soto is Back. It’s a great story to make yourself, and the women in your life feel empowered to kick butt and rise to the top. Read my review here.

Book Lovers by Emily Henry

An illustration of a blonde woman sitting on a suitcase full of books reading, passing a book behind her to a man with black hair and glasses who is also sitting on a suitcase and reading

I will recommend this book to anyone who’s ever asked me for a book recommendation because I feel like there’s a little bit of everything in here: a little spice, some laugh-out-loud moments, some mystery, great relationships and excellent pacing. I can’t wait to go back and read the rest of Henry’s catalogue. Read my review here.

Oona Out Of Order by Margarita Montimore

Oona Out of Order (Book Cover) by Margarita Montimore: The Modest Reader

Even though this book came highly recommended to me, I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was. For three nights in a row, I stayed up way past my bedtime reading this. I really wish this would become a TV series—it would be so good! Read my review here.
