Another year of reading great books….

Favorite reads of the year

After reading SO many amazing books this year, it was tough to pick my favorites, but here are the ones that topped the list in the end!

New in ’22:

🌸 The School for Good Mothers by Jessamine Chan – a mother is forced into a nightmare year-old parenting reform program after being deemed unfit by new government standards.

🌸 More Than You’ll Ever Know by Katie Gutierrez – a woman living a double life, secretly married to two different men, one of whom ends up jailed for the murder of the other.

Awesome female-led fantasy:

💫 The Once and Future Witches by Alix Harrow – a story that intertwines sisterhood, suffrage, the power of mystery womankind and the history of witchcraft.

💫 The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab – a young woman makes a deal with the devil that will make her immortal, but also instantly forgotten by everyone she meets.

Seriously creepy reads:

🖤 A History of Wild Places by Shea Ernshaw – an investigator, searching for a missing woman…a hidden commune cut off from the rest of the world…a secret disease spreading through the woods…all tie together in this haunting story.

🖤 The Push by Ashley Audrain – a mother convinced that something is not right with her daughter finds that getting someone to believe her is harder than she thought…and the consequences start to add up.

There were many more great ones – too many to mention but I’ve reviewed them all on my Instagram page over the last year, if you are interested! – and so many more I’m looking forward to reading in 2023!
