For years now, in December, I have organized my own “awards”. The best books I have read that year.

Because lets face it, sometimes Goodreads Awards leave me wanting!

Also with 140 books read so far, I have way more than 10 to praise!

So here we are but I am changing the rules.

I will post 21 times but not every day. I will see how this is manageable in my very busy life.

You are welcome to join of course! Know that I’ll use the hashtages #bestreadsof2022 but I can’t promise to find all your posts the day self! So if you want me to go comment on your post, I’ll invite you to leave a link to your posts in the comments!

The topics are below but feel free to adapt to your reading year! The goal is just to praise our favorites!

1 Thriller/atmospheric

2 LGBTQ/charming

3 Illustrated book/comics

4 Adult Contemporary

5 Series/sequel

6 Atmospheric/gothic

7 Rereads

8 Romance
