Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday post! Today is a freebie, and so I wanted to take the chance to rave a bit about the 10 best books I’ve read in 2022 so far. These are all books I’ve read this year, but were not necessarily released this year. I also decided not to include any re-reads. But without further ado, these are my 10 favorites (in no particular order):

The Green Creek series by TJ Klune – An amazing, hidden gem series that has taken over my life

See You Yesterday by Rachel Lynn Solomon – Time loop shenanigans

So This Is Ever After by F.T. Lukens – The trope of ‘Two idiots in love’ has never been more fun!

The No-Show by Beth O’Leary – An emotional rollercoaster

The Twice-Scorned Lady of Shadow by Annette Marie – PURE EPICNESS!

Book Lovers by Emily Henry – A thoughtful romance full of self-acceptance and bookish love

Wicked Beauty by Katee Robert – A steamy and addictive retelling of Helen of Troy, Achilles and Patroclus

  1. Ooh Annette Marie’s books always look so fun. She has the most awesomest covers too, I think.

    1. I love her covers too and she designs them herself, which I think is just the coolest πŸ™‚

  2. I am reading Beach Reads by Emily Henry right now. Glad to know you like her other book. My TTT Freebie list

    1. Hope you’ll love Beach Read!

  3. I want to read more TJ Klune after reading The House in the Cerulean Sea!

    I have read some great books this year so a couple of my favourites would be The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osman (no 2 in the series – also loved no 1!) and The Little Cafe In Copenhagen. The list could go on though!

    Have a great week!
