As someone obsessed with books (I’m a librarian, don’t act surprised), I can say the end of the year is a magical time for me, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the holidays. No, I’m not interested in movie marathons of Elf or Home Alone, for me, it’s all about the BOOK LISTS. At the end of December, I dedicate an entire day to sifting through the multitude of lists highlighting the year’s best titles. Then, I log onto my Goodreads account (where I track what I have read and what I want to read) and feverishly add at least 100 more books to my TBR (to be read) list. If I lived to be 300 years old, I still wouldn’t have enough time to read all the books I’ve added. And yet, the list continues to grow each year. I’m powerless against it.
My greatest hope for you, dear reader, is to add a healthy number of books to your own ever-growing TBR list. To assist with this, TLCPL has joined the fun and created our own list of favorite books from 2022.
You’ll find something for every taste on this list, and we’ve narrowed it down to several categories: Youth and Young Adult, Graphic Novels, Adult Fiction, and Adult Nonfiction. For a full list of our recommendations, scan the QR code on page 7. Happy reading! Continue Reading
