Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books of 2022

Hello and Happy New Year! I’m linking up with Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday, a bookish meme for all who love lists and reading. There’s a new prompt each week, so check out her blog for details! Today’s topic is:

Favorite Books of 2022

Here’s a look at my top 10 12 books read in 2022. I did a lot of reading the first half of the year, really up through August. Then work started back and it killed my reading mojo, unfortunately. I finished the year strong though, completing a total of 90 books (about a third of those were children’s books). In no particular order, here are my favorites:

THE OVERNIGHT GUEST by Heather Gudenkauf
(★★★★★)

THE IT GIRL by Ruth Ware
(★★★★)

THE GIRL IN THE MIRROR by Rose Carlyle
(★★★★½)

THE NIGHT SHIFT by Alex Finlay
(★★★★★)

BENEATH THE STAIRS by Jennifer Fawcett
(★★★★½)

SUN DAMAGE by Sabine Durrant
(★★★★¼)

FAMILY OF LIARS by E. Lockhart
(★★★★★)

THE RESTING PLACE by Camilla Sten
(★★★★)

THE FAVOR by Nora Murphy
(★★★★½)

WOULD I LIE TO YOU? by Aliya Ali-Afzal
(★★★★½)

142 OSTRICHES by April Davila
(★★★★½)

TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY by Linwood Barclay
(★★★★★)

Were any of these a top pick of yours last year? Or maybe on your worst list? Please let me know in the comments. Happy reading in 2023! — 𝓓𝓲𝓪𝓷𝓪

  1. You’d a great reading year, Diana! I wish I read as many books like you. Hopefully I’ll do slightly better this year. I’m looking forward to reading IT Girl as it’s already on my reading list. Happy New Year!

  2. I’m not even going to do a ‘favorites’ list for 2022 as my reading was so awful for the last quarter of the year. However, hoping 2023 is better. As to your list, I have several on my TBR (or even already on my Kindle) and I’ve read THE OVERNIGHT GUEST and THE IT GIRL. Liked them both. Right now, I’m reading THE ROSE CODE by Kate Quinn. It’s for a book group on Thursday and I don’t think I’ll get it finished, but maybe it will be close. I’ll go anyway to see what others have thought. I’m liking it a lot so far. The only other one I’ve read by Quinn is THE ALICE NETWORK and that one was very good too.

  3. Great list of mysteries & thrillers! The Girl in the Mirror and Beneath the Stairs intrigue me. I think I’m going to have to check those out. Happy 2023! :D
