How many of these have you read?

2022 Books Goodreads

This year was another good one for readers everywhere. There were so many exciting books to read across the board in terms of genre—fiction, historical fiction, romance, memoirs, nonfiction, and more. It’s hard to imagine that anyone’s “To Be Read” (TBR) list was empty in 2022.

A few weeks ago Goodreads announced their annual Goodreads Choice Award winners to wrap up 2022—and all of the winners were chosen by users. The brand reports that this year, more than 5.7 million votes were cast across 17 categories. The list is great inspiration for book recommendations if you’re looking for more to add to your list in 2023, and it’s also interesting to see if any of the books you read this year made the list (or maybe there’s a book here that you didn’t really love). Either way, it’s fun to browse the awards and see how everything stacked up (pun definitely intended). See the books below.
