Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Books of 2022

It’s time to share my favourite books of 2022! From epic fantasies to romcoms, I read some excellent books this year.

Top 10 Tuesday was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. If you’re interested in taking part click here.

Breathe and Count Back From Ten by Natalia Sylvester – This is undoubtedly my favourite book of the year. It was also my only five star read (what happened, 2022?!). I really connected with this book as a chronically ill person and found it a very emotional read.

The Councillor by E. J. Beaton – I wish this book was more well known because it was just so good. It’s full of intrigue and the audiobook has a fantastic narrator. Highly recommended if you enjoy political fantasy!

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon – I loved Priory of the Orange Tree so decided to read Samantha Shannon’s other series and I’m so glad I did! I wasn’t sure about this one at first but it grew on me the more I read and I ended up loving it.

The Stand-In by Lily Chu – This book was just so much fun. I loved reading it and the narration was fantastic as well.

The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake – A surprise favourite, as I wasn’t sure this book would be for me, but I found myself really drawn into the world and characters.

Blade of Secrets by Tricia Levenseller – Tricia Levenseller is quickly becoming one of my favourite YA fantasy authors. Her books are always easy reads with great stories and characters. I also found the protagonist, who has social anxiety, really relatable.

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo – I just love returning to the Grishaverse world. Leigh Bardugo crafts such good stories.

Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim – I found this one a bit slow in places but I always enjoy Elizabeth Lim’s writing and the pace really picks up in the second half.

Thronebreakers by Rebecca Coffindaffer – The final book in the duology, this one was exciting, funny, and emotional. I thought it handled themes like grief really well.

Make You Mine This Christmas by Lizzie Huxley-Jones – This was my final read of the year and it was a great cosy Christmas romcom with plenty of humour, romance, friendships, and queer and disability rep.
