Top 20 Reads of 2022

So after doing a top 10 reads of the year in 2021, I have failed to whittle down my favourite books of 2022 and so am back to a top 20! I just couldn’t let any of them go! My Goodreads challenge is nearly complete and I am only 4 books away from my target of 200 so I’m hoping to get those last four read over Christmas now that I’m off work for a couple of weeks.

I’m aware that once again this year I’ve not taken part in many blog tours and my reviews are also down but it’s a good number for me at the moment and I think this will be me until retirement now! But it’s been lovely getting back into the social side of book blogging especially attending book festivals again this year. I have really missed getting together with likeminded readers so here’s to many more in 2023!

And now here is my top 20 recommendations from the books I read in 2022…

And my favourite book of 2022 is End of Story by Louise Swanson. An amazing book that worked on every level for me and left me emotionally exhausted!

So that’s it! I just need to finish by saying thank you to all the authors, publishers, blog tour organisers and bloggers out there who have supported me, becoming good friends in the process, and to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I will read almost anything but my preferred genres to review are psychological thrillers, crime procedural novels or women's fiction. My kindle is my life but I also have a substantial bookshelf in my cosy reading room where I can go to escape the stresses of family life with plenty of tea and chocolate. I am a member of netgalley and bookbridg. I review on Amazon, where I'm a Top 500 reviewer, and Goodreads. You can always find me over on Twitter @jocatrobertson for any review requests.
