Reading Other People’s Favorite Books of 2022 | TBR

For a second year in a row, I decided to put together a tbr based on the lists of favorite books of 2022 posted by bloggers and booktubers. Last year, I had very good results and ended up giving 4 or 5 stars to all the books (check out my wrap up to know my thoughts on the books and the experiment!) and that’s why I decided to do it again this year.

To pick the books for this tbr, I used the same rules from last year:

  1. It had to be on the list of favorite/best books of 2021 of more than 1 person
  2. It had to have good reviews from my goodread friends
  3. It had to sound interesting to me

After going through SO MANY lists of favorites/best books of 2022, I finally have a tbr of 6 books that I’m looking forward to reading:

I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy: I only watched a few iCarly episodes so I wasn’t really interested in reading this when it came out, but after all of the glowing reviews, I’m excited to read it.

Our Wives Under the Sea by Julia Armfield: the concept of this book sounds fascinating, maybe because being stranded under the sea is really frightening to me. I have heard the writing is incredible and, from some quotes I have read, I think I’ll really like it as well.

Woman, Eating by Claire Kohda: this is often described as a character-driven, all vibes, slow-paced book, which I know won’t be appealing to a lot of people, but it sounds like exactly my type of book. No one among my Goodread friends so I have given it less than 4 stars, so I have high expectations.

The Book of the Most Precious Substance by Sara Gran: Not a lot of people seem to have read this book, but two of my favorite booktubers who have similar tastes to mine included it in their favorites of 2022, so I know I’m going to love it. It seems to be a mix of horror and fantasy, which sounds right up my alley.

Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher: I discovered T. Kingfisher’s books in 2022 and I loved what I have read so far, so I’m excited to pick up more of her books. I have heard this is dark but humorous, which sounds intriguing to me. Hopefully, I’ll love it as much as her other books.

The Push by Ashley Audrain: I don’t read that many thrillers and I’m very picky with the ones I do read, so I was a bit hesitant to include this book. But it was the most frequently mentioned book out of all the books on this list, so I decided to give it a chance.

Have you read these books and did you enjoy them? What books have you seen a lot on best books of 2022 lists?
