My Favorite Reads of 2022: Reading Room Recommendations

 It's always hard to do a Favorite Reads of the Year list.  After reading and reviewing for so many years, I tend to know what books I will enjoy.  So, when it comes to narrowing the number down to "favorites," I invariably end up with a large list.  I've decided that's okay, because all the lists for this end-of-the-year round-up are different, and you might see a title on my list you wouldn't see somewhere else.  I highly recommend any of the books that have made my list.  My list contains favorite authors who seem to always land in my favorite reads, but there are also three new (one new-to-me and two debut) authors who came in and swept me off my feet.  Chris Bohjalian, C.J. Carey, and Shelby Van Pelt are most welcome to the many authors I follow. 

I've linked my reviews to all these books in their titles.  Just click on the title and it will take you to my review here at my blog.  I hope that my list gives readers some reads that will be outstanding for them, too.
