Since we are halfway through 2022 now, I thought it would be a lovely idea to tell you about some of my favourite reads of the year.
They Both Die in the End by Adam Silvera
I caved and read this book because everyone was talking about it. All the bookish people on Twitter and TikTok were getting to me and I just needed to know what the hype was all about. Safe to say, this book did not let me down.
If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin
I picked this book up quite spontaneously and I’m honestly so glad that I did. I got through it in about 2 days which is incredibly fast for me.
Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
This book has been on my tbr list for waayyy too long. After finishing a longer book, I wanted to read something quick and lighthearted. I picked up Heartstopper and now I’m looking forward to reading volume two because volume one was just so cute.
The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
It would be impossible not to enjoy a book about four elderly friends who meet up on a Thursday and try to solve murders. Although this book has a slightly slower start, it’s definitely worth persevering.
My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
I bought this book from a secondhand book market stall and I didn’t know much about it. I saw the words ‘serial killer’ and thought it seemed interesting. Oh my, I sure am glad I picked up this book. It was a fast-paced, easy read that kept me gripped the entire time.
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
How did it take me so long to read this?! I feel like younger me would have loved this. Also, Bilbo is so incredibly relatable, mostly because he’s always thinking about food.
Agatha by Anne Cathrine Bomann
I found myself browsing the shelves in my local library and I came across this book. I decided to give it a go on a whim and I’m so glad that I did. Everyone should read this book, it’s absolutely beautiful.
Have you read any of these books? What has been your favourite read of 2022 so far?
