Top Books of 2022

Posted: February 3, 2023 in Uncategorized

It’s time for my top lists of the year. I’ll only be doing Books and Films again this year, it’s where I spend the majority of my entertainment time (games are work). I wasn’t able to invest the time needed to make a Concerts (Obviously) or Albums list, that’s not saying I didn’t listen to new music and see shows, just I didn’t invest the time I feel is needed to make a list.

We will start this year with books, this one is a little different in that the books didn’t have to come out this year, BUT they had to be a new read to me (or a reread of something I may not have grasped when younger). I read/listened to 126 books this year, a new record for me! So here are my top (recommended) books of 2022,  in no particular order but split it into fiction and nonfiction, Bolded are my TOP 3. There are a lot because, I read a lot!
