The best books of 2022

Share:

Dec 09, 2022

It’s estimated that over 2 million books are published each year. That would mean that over 5,000 books are published every day. That’s 208 books per hour! By the time you’re done reading this, 15 more books will be born. Please... nobody check that math. Reading is my thing, not numbers.

Obviously, no one can read all of those books, although that does sound like a pretty enviable job. So as subjective as it may be, it’s still fun to take a look at 100 of the most raved about books from the past year, according to the sources we’ve compiled, which include The New York Times, Library Journal, School Library Journal, Shelf Awareness, Amazon Editors' Top 100 and Publishers Weekly. We aimed to include a diverse range of titles and to highlight the books that were included multiple times on these "Best of" lists.

From a boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world to a transformative understanding of wasps, there was a lot of variety in the books published this year.” Take a look at some of the very best in fiction and nonfiction from 2022, and then borrow from your public library through the Libby reading app:
