Year of reading 2022: Part 1 – My top 22 books

Year of reading 2022
Part 1
 My top 22 books

To follow my tradition, here is part 1 of my yearly recap.
There is a total of 3 parts:

  1. my favorite books, with my usual categories, see here below
  2. my stats
  3. my fun list with titles

2022 was a great year, with 41% of 5 stars rating (58 out of 140 books).
As usual, the final choice here below is based on the quality of the book, on how it resonated with me and my own experience, and on how it stayed with me.
I have added the 3 formats for the scifi category, as I read more of that genre this year.

Only 2 French this year in these top titles, and 3 Japanese books.
And 36% are classics!
Out of these 22, it’s really hard to spot THE winner. If I had absolutely to choose, I might go with The Bride Wore Black, for being a major unexpected discovery for me, of a really brilliant author. But I equally enjoyed all the above!

DO YOU HAVE SOME FAVORITES
IN COMMON WITH MINE?

MORE FUN RECAP TOMORROW!

HAPPY NEW YEAR OF READING TO YOU!

  1. I don’t think, I’ve read a single one of your favourites. Another book by Haruf (Our Souls at Night) is on my wish list though and I have high hopes for it. Maybe a 2023 favourite ?
